The 2023 Toyota Land Cruiser 300 reviewed – specs, interior and exterior photos, price, release date and more. It is no longer a name needing an introduction, and yes we are talking about the almighty Toyota Land Cruiser.
The present J200 generation Land Cruiser has been in production since 2007, and an all-new 300 Series Land Cruiser has just arrived.
While the rumours of its arrival have been all over the media, Toyota themselves seem to ‘intentionally’ keep mute about it.
Well, we’d be discussing a little on what we think the 2023 machine on land would be like.
Toyota Land Cruiser 300 – The Beginning Of A New Era
A new Toyota Land Cruiser was debuted on the 9th of June, 2021. It had been long-awaited for and no thanks to the pandemic, Toyota fans has to wait a little bit longer, even.
Photos began circulating online in April, and hints of what the Toyota new machine would look like were showing up.
‘The Toyota Land Cruiser 2023 would probably be a hybrid of the 2022 edition; and some more…’
To tell what the 2023 Toyota Land Cruiser would look like, we might have to take some peeps at its direct predecessor – the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser.
The 2023 Toyota Land Cruiser And A Few Key Things About The Predecessor
The 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser was debuted on the 9th of June, 2021 and internally called Toyota J30.
Otherwise known as Toyota LC300, it is seeing a high demand all over the world, especially in the Asian country of Japan. There are reports that the units planned to be delivered in the country in 2021 and 2022 might have been totally pre-ordered.
Pre-orders were said to be something above 20,000 units earlier in July, but the company has plans to produce only 600-700 units a month.
The exterior of the car features a classic SUV design, in a modern and sleeky way. Upright pillars and fascias, straight body lines, high-positioned hood, and a boxy silhouette pay little heed to aerodynamics, but it is what being “style worthy of the cream of the 4WD crop” demands.
The three-eyed headlamps at the front are slimmer, straighter, and more advanced technologically. Its hood features a tubular recess in the centre, while the radiator grille has a cleaner design in a larger footprint and four horizontal slats instead of three.
The greenhouse on the sides is stylish with a new rear quarter glass.
The front windows also have a new design, and the outside rearview mirrors have a curvy shape.
Looking at the rear, the automobile’s tail lamps are slimmer, wider, and more advanced, and then there is no chrome strip on the tailgate to keep the design clean.
The interior of the ‘beast on road’ has its dashboard looking slimmer.
It featured a more compact, car-like steering wheel, a neater floor console and a floating widescreen infotainment system. The door handles look a bit similar to the new Toyota Venza (it is sold in Japan as the Toyota Harrier).
It has a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless charging, head-up display, four-zone climate control system and six USB ports (two in the front and four in the rear).
The Toyota Land Cruiser also comes with a Multi-Terrain Monitor that displays obstacles ahead from the driver’s point of view on the central display.
It is the first to come with the feature.
There are also no reports it is being sold in the United States.
