2024 Toyota Land Cruiser: legendary DNA meets new tech

2024 Land Cruiser

More than 70 years after the launch of the original Land Cruiser, Toyota is proud to reveal the all-new 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser. This next-generation model is destined to continue the icon’s history of continuous production into a new era while drawing directly on the qualities that made the Land Cruiser name synonymous with strength and go-anywhere reliability.

Since the launch of the original ‘BJ’ in 1951 (above centre), the Land Cruiser has gone on to sell some 11.3 million units worldwide

Pre-sales of the new 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser for UK and European customers will open during the fourth quarter of this year, with the first vehicle deliveries expected in the first half of 2024. Further details of the UK model range and pricing will be announced soon, but the following is what we can reveal right now.

Classic construction with improved all-terrain performance

This new model represents the fifth generation of the Land Cruiser’s Light Duty, or Prado, product line, and as such will likely be identified by its 250 series chassis code. It retains the traditional body-on-frame construction of every Land Cruiser and follows the larger 300 series (Station Wagon product line) Land Cruiser in adopting our GA-F platform, which plays a key role in significantly improving off-road performance.

The new frame is 50% stiffer, while the rigidity of the combined body and frame has been improved by 30%. These substantial increases contribute to improved responsiveness, handling and ride comfort, both on- and off-road. Suspension performance has also been enhanced, particularly in the area of wheel articulation – a key factor in off-road driving. At the same time, the new model is easy to manoeuvre and more comfortable on the road, true to our commitment to making the 2024 Land Cruiser eminently practical and tailored to customers’ day-to-day needs.

New electric power steering

The 250 series Land Cruiser is the first to adopt an electric power steering system. It reduces the amount of kickback that can occur when navigating rough terrain and provides smoother, more direct steering and improved manoeuvrability at all speeds. This new system also allows the new Land Cruiser to include Lane Tracing Assist as part of its comprehensive Toyota Safety Sense active safety and driver assistance package.

Disconnecting the front anti-roll bar

Further off-road capability is built-in with a new electronically disconnecting front anti-roll bar mechanism. This technology enables the driver to disengage the anti-roll bar using a switch on the dashboard, a facility that allows maximum wheel articulation – and therefore maximum tyre contact with the ground – to successfully tackle challenging terrain at low speeds.

Further support when driving off-road is provided by upgrades to the Multi-Terrain Monitor and Multi-Terrain Select system. Using high-resolution cameras and a dashboard display, the Monitor gives the driver a clear view of the area immediately around and beneath the vehicle. Meanwhile, the Select system automatically adapts the chassis and performance to suit the demands of different off-road driving conditions.

2024 Toyota Land Cruiser: new powertrain

In the UK and Western Europe, the new 2024 Land Cruiser will be introduced with our 2.8-litre 1GD-FTV turbo diesel engine – the same 2.8-litre unit installed in the Toyota Hilux. Engineered for a strong balance of fuel efficiency and performance, this four-cylinder engine produces 201bhp and is matched to a new eight-speed Direct Shift automatic transmission, giving it the strength to tow loads of up to 3,500kg.

An electrified version that combines the same 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine with 48V mild hybrid technology will be available in early 2025.

Design – modern yet traditional

The styling of the 2024 Land Cruiser captures the lean, functional beauty that’s found in the best professional tools. Design cues inspired by the model’s long heritage reinforce the ‘back to its origins’ ethos of the new Land Cruiser, creating a modern interpretation of the traditional form-follows-function approach.

In profile, the new 2024 Land Cruiser has a classic silhouette based around strong horizontal lines. It measures 4,920mm long, 1,980mm wide and 1,870mm tall, while the wheelbase is 2,850mm. Off-road performance is helped by shorter overhangs, sculpted corners and bodywork that subtly narrows towards the sills. Other body parts have been thoughtfully designed for easy replacement in the event of damage.

The interior can be specified with a choice of either five- or seven-seat configurations and offers a design that underlines the strength and functionality of an authentic off-roader. This is evidenced in details such as the horizontally arranged instrument panel and switches that are shaped for easy operation, even when driving over challenging terrain. All-round visibility has been given priority, assisted by the lowered belt line that allows deeper side windows to be fitted.

  1. I won’t be buying a diesel engine, but would be interested in a petrol hybrid. I have a Corolla Touring 2 litre hybrid and really like the power and economy. Toyota and Lexus petrol hybrids are very well regarded in the UK, but Diesels don’t sell here any more. You should consider this further.

    1. Hi Iain, thanks for your feedback.

      We will definitely take this onboard and pass this on to our product team.

      For now, Toyota aims to provide customers with the most suitable powertrain for their specific needs. The new Land Cruiser returns to its roots as a practical vehicle with maximum competence and capability. Based on user-cases and needs from our European customers, we believe the new 2.8-litre diesel engine is the most suitable powertrain for the usage of Land Cruiser in Europe.

      Thanks.

      1. I owned a Land Cruiser currently,and all along of my life. I want to place an order

      2. Hi Chinthaka, thanks for your comment.

        We are pleased to hear of your interest!

        This is all the information we have on the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser and its ordering.

        Please keep an eye on the Mag and website for future updates!

        Thanks.

      3. Wrong Toyota…. ULEZ compliance will only get stricter in the future with more and more charges for non BEV or PHEV or HEV vehicles.

        One of the Reasons I changed my Diesel Landrover Discovery 4 for a Lexus NX 450H+ PHEV.

    2. No body wants a petrol in Ireland. Diesel all the way. Will there be a bigger diesel engine available like the Amazon 4.2 V6 ? Badly missed from it was retired.

      1. Hi Ryan, thanks for your comment.

        This is all the information we have on the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser.

        Please keep an eye on the Mag and website for future updates!

        Thanks.

    1. Have owned a Landcruiser for the last 16 years and will challenge anyone to find a better car anywhere. Delighted that Toyota are bringing out an all new model. Could you please confirm if the new 7 seater will be a proper 7 seater for 7 adults or whether that third row of seats will continue to be appropriate for children only on short to medium journeys?

      1. Hi Luca, thanks for getting in touch.

        We are pleased to hear of your interest in the Toyota Land Cruiser!

        This is all the information we have currently on this vehicle. Please keep an eye on the mag and website for future updates.

        Thanks.

    1. Hi Shirjeel, thanks for getting in touch.

      This is all the information we have on the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser.

      Please keep an eye on our Mag and website for updates when we have them!

      Thanks.

  2. Looks exciting! Agree with previous comments. US will see a reduction of $20k+ from previous models to align more with the huge success of the Bronco etc. Will the UK also see the same reduction in price?

    Also agree we need Toyota’s petrol/electric re-gen powertrain. Assuming the new diesel is Euro 7 compliant it would be fair to estimate given we are on Euro 6 as of next month that Euro 7 has less than 10 years of compliance in Ulez Zones..given current pace.

    1. Hi Andy, thanks for getting in touch.

      We are pleased to hear of your interest in the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser!

      At the moment, this is all the information we have to give on this model.

      Thanks.

    1. Hi Chris, thanks for your query.

      This is all the information we have on the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser.

      Please keep an eye on our Mag and website for future updates!

      Thanks.

  3. Won’t be buying one if there is no petrol version. The future of diesel vehicles within the growing confiscatory ulez zones in the UK make petrol power the only sensible economic choice.

    Please don’t just parrot back that nanny toyota knows best. In this instance you don’t. Do something different.

    1. Hi Ian, thanks for your comment.

      We completely understand your frustration.

      However, to achieve maximum competence and capability we believe the new 2.8-litre diesel engine is the most suitable.

      Thanks.

      1. You global newsroom says there is the T24A-FTS petrol hybrid with even more torque than the diesel so even more fit for purpose. All the engine comments are saying we want the petrol hybrid in the UK and not the turbo diesel. Listen to customers feedback please.

      2. Hi Luke, thanks for getting in touch.

        Thanks for your feedback.

        We value all comments and listen closely to people’s opinions in order to provide products our customers will enjoy.

        Thanks.

  4. Nobody wants 18inch wheels on an off-road vehicle!
    You have NOT done your market research….this is just weird…

    1. Hi Joe, thanks for getting in touch.

      Thank you for your feedback, it has been passed on to the relevant teams.

      Thanks.
