Revised Toyota Land Cruiser Launches in the UK

Toyota announced the launch of a revised Land Cruiser in the British market boasting a new Euro 6 174bhp 2.8-litre D-4D engine. The LC is literally one of the longest enduring Toyota models of all time, and the new diesel unit only adds to its versatility.

Replacing the current 3.0 liter diesel engine, the 2,755cc, 16-valve DOHC engine offers improved driveability with better torque delivery, plus lower fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions. You get 174bhp (130kW) of max output plus 420 Nm of peak torque. That is more than enough grunt for a successful school run, which is what this car will be used for, especially as the car comes with a new six-speed automatic transmission as well.

The launch of the new model also heralds the return of the five-door/seven-seat Land Cruiser Active models, one of the most capable and practical full-size SUVs out there that is still capable of returning 39.2mpg and 194g/km. When it comes to the equipment though, you need some speccing-up skills to get the most for your money.
