Toyota Land Cruiser 300 2022: the next generation of the legendary SUV.

The change of generations of iconic Japanese cars is always an event for the fans of the brand. Not so long ago, Toyota decided to update its classic brutal SUV for self-confident people.

This is how the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 2022 appeared — a powerful frame rogue with the same dependent suspension at the rear, but at the same time in a completely new look.

However, the engine compartment characteristics of the novelty, which are designed to attract younger drivers who like to take everything from the car, will also undergo a change for the better.


Even from the photo of the car, it can be concluded that its dimensions will remain almost the same (the height will decrease slightly), but the designers managed to make the new product more brutal and courageous.

However, the restyling brought to the appearance of «Kruzak» and a certain amount of good nature, family due to the altered air intakes, lighting equipment and relief transitions.

The front of the new model looks more interesting than anything else. It is located very high and resembles a square with slightly rounded corners.

The windshield, although high, is not the largest and, coupled with the massive pillars, does not contribute to a good view. As well as the engine compartment cover delivered practically without tilt. Here, visibility is also impaired by two large relief «hillocks» in its middle part.

On the other hand, small LED headlights with huge curved strokes of daytime lights, on the contrary, look beautiful and perfectly illuminate the road in any weather. A large radiator grille with traditional chrome horizontal stripes «smiles» widely between them.

Everything else is located already on the body kit raised along the edges, which are touched by a curved black-plastic insert. At the bottom, the bumper moves forward a little, opening up space for a modest trapezoid of the air intake, a platform for the number and rather unpretentious round foglights.

The off-road character of the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 2022 is emphasized here by a modest protective layer.

The sides of the new body are very massive. The flat lid has an almost steep bevel at the back and a slight slope at the front, which is emphasized by lightweight roof rails and large, regular-shaped windows in chrome edging.

They rise slightly towards the stern, and in order to enhance the effect of the raised roof, the pillars between the doors are made large, but between the fifth door and the tail window — much narrower.

Smooth relief transitions add brutality to the car, which acquire edges only at the bottom, at the transition to huge, widened wheel arches and sills with a modest non-retractable footrest.

Large rectangular mirrors and large door handles with a comfortable grip give the look to complete the look.

The feed of the car, for the sake of fashion, has become too elegant, which somewhat does not fit into the concept of a «brutal car».

A large, massive visor-spoiler hangs over the sheer window, shading the huge rectangles of the parking lights located immediately below it. There is almost no relief here, but the nameplates and a small stamping under the license plate are clearly visible.

The body kit here is no less powerful than the front, so that it can be used as a step to access the luggage compartment. It features a large trapezoidal diffuser and large fog lights.


The interior of the new Toyota Land Cruiser 300 2022 model year can no longer be called «retirement», as it was before. In particular, new finishing materials contribute to the change of the image, among which, in addition to plastic and fabric, there is genuine leather and metal inserts.

And the multimedia system will acquire new, interesting functions.

Front design

Immediately in front of the driver is a large center console, on which there is nothing superfluous. The steering wheel will be slightly more comfortable than before, and additional buttons on the side spokes will make it easier to access the most important functions of the car.

The dashboard, located immediately behind the steering wheel, has become more interesting, having acquired large scales of two main sensors and an on-board computer in the middle, from which a large amount of relevant information is available.

Finally, such an expensive car has the ability to display instrument readings on the windshield. A little to the right of this projector, you can find a large, seven, ten or 12.5 inches, screen of the entertainment system, which will be facilitated by the virtual keyboard.

As for the rest of the details: deflectors, climate control panels and auxiliary physical buttons — all these changes were almost not affected.

But the tunnel became a little wider, so much so that during the test drive it turned out that there might not be enough space for a «big» person in the front passenger compartment.

Other features include a technical panel with a drive mode washer and a transmission selector, as well as a smartphone charging platform.

Of the comfortable options, large cup holders and a swing armrest, the interior of which can be cooled or heated, will certainly be appreciated.

Seats and luggage compartment

The car will have five or seven seats, the seats will receive soft filling and a fairly comfortable shape, but leather here will not be in all trim levels.

However, nice «buns» in the form of electrical adjustments with the ability to remember the position of the seats, heating, ventilation are now available for the first and second rows, and climate control can be configured in four autonomous zones.

Unfortunately, the trunk volume is traditionally not the largest in the class. With seven seats, you can count on 265 liters of space, but by adding both rows, you can increase the figure to almost 1000 liters.


The weight of the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 2022 has decreased by almost two hundredweight due to the more active use of composite materials.

At the same time, the engines of the novelty will be more powerful than before. In the six-cylinder version, the petrol version will have 3.5 liters of volume and 415 forces, and the diesel version will have 3.3 liters and almost 300 «horses» of power.

Of course, all configurations will have a full drive, and a traditional automatic machine capable of operating in ten modes will transfer the forces of the motors to the wheels.

You don’t even need a test drive to be convinced of the car’s outstanding off-road capabilities. However, in the city and on the highway the 300th «Cruiser» will also show excellent results, however, one can only dream of a low fuel consumption with such a machine.

Options and prices

The car will be available in three versions, more than 5.6 million rubles will be requested for the starting one. The price of the most advanced one will be about 8 million units of the Russian currency.

Sales start in Russia

There is no exact information about the release date in Russia yet, but, apparently, this will happen in the winter of 2021-2022.

Competing models

Among the direct rivals of the Japanese legend, it is worth highlighting the Cadillac Escalade, Lexus LX, Infiniti QX80, Nissan Patrol, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Chevrolet Tahoe.
