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 love the styling of this new LC. I currently drive a plug in RAV4 which is great. I do hope to own a LandCruiser in the future. Probably when I retire and do fewer miles for work. I’m looking forward to trying out this new model.

  2. Does anyone know When will they be available in dealerships for us to have a poke about one as I’d like to see it in the flesh before I make my decision

    1. Hi Stu,
      Unfortunately, we do not have any information on this at the moment.
      If you are interested, we would recommend leaving your details with your nearest Toyota Centre so that they can contact you when they are in the showroom!
      Thanks.

  3. I would love to become a Land Cruiser owner. After driving Land Rovers, I find the reliability and customer service lacking in many areas, despite being a loyal follower of the Discovery. I am loosing faith in JLR and it’s value for money. My current HSE Lux 3ltr diesel is an absolute dream to drive, but I need to use my head not my heart.
    I am looking forward to my first test drive in the new Land Cruiser.
    Customer Service/Support, Cost, Warranty, Efficiency and On/Off Road Ability are my priorities.
    My Toyota Land Cruiser colleagues, are convinced the 2024 vehicle will challenge other brands on all levels!

  4. Please try to make all models available in UK/EU with the classic round headlights, not just the First Editions, a Landcruiser is not the same without them.

  5. Will there be a commercial variant? Also agree with other comments, round lights need to be an option, not just for the 1st lucky few who will probably try to flip them.

    1. Hi John, thanks for your comment.

      Thanks for your interest in the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser!

      This is all the information we currently have on this vehicle.

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

      Thanks.

  6. I agree with comments posted that the standard configuration should have round Headlights and sooner we have a petrol hybrid with solid state battery the better. The UK is just not ready for full electric transition it will take years , 25 + in my view and by then I am hopeful the land cruiser will be powered just like Mirai, but in meantime drive train like my plug in Rav4 prime with solid state battery would be fine.

  7. Why no petrol option or petrol hybrid option for the UK? This is really disappointing! I won’t buy a diesel. Toyota THINK AGAIN … the market is changing but it seems you are not!

    1. Hi Omar, thanks for your comment.

      We really appreciate your feedback and will pass this on to the relevant teams.

      Thanks.
