For the longest time, the Toyota Land Cruiser has been the most powerful sports utility vehicle in the market. Its enthusiasts have never been bothered by its high fuel consumption since its power, reliability and performance are incredible. However, the developed countries have laid down emission standards which seem to be making this auto’s sales to drop significantly. Fortunately, there is no course for alarm since Toyota is making plans to redesign this Land Cruiser by making a hybrid in the 2016 year model. Toyota has always made performance and functionality a top priority in all its models. In this upcoming model, new features will be put in place to help the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser to maintain its prestigious reputation.
2016 TOYOTA LAND CRUISER: CHANGES
Some of the expected changes in 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser include the unseen area surveillance, lane departure and rear cross traffic. Its seats and upholstery will be covered with classic materials with unique colors. Its dashboard will be bigger than that of the outgoing model, and it will look more attractive. Other features which will set this auto part from the rest is the fact that all of its new features and equipments will be offered as standard. This 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser will come with full time four wheel traction control, vehicle stability control, anti lock brake system in addition to standard front and rear sonar proximity warning system. This machine will also have an impressive four zone climate control system with 28 outlets. As mentioned, all the above features and may others will be standard in all trim levels, thus leaving the buyers with no other choice apart from the exterior and interior colors.
2016 TOYOTA LAND CRUISER: ENGINE OPTIONS
2016 Toyota Land Cruiser is renowned for its off-road prowess. In order to maintain this trend, the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser will not change the major components of this car. 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser will maintain the same 5.7-liter V8 engine for the U.S.A model. The expected hybrid engine has raised some controversies, regarding its performance. In that case, Toyota is watching carefully not to compromise the quality of this master piece. The hybrid model will be the most sought out car in the world especially if Toyota manages to switch the current V6 and V8 engine with the hybrid engine that they are developing. Toyota is likely to replace one tank with a battery, but maintain the same towing competency.
2016 Toyota Land Cruiser: Release Date nad Price
This sports utility vehicle is expected to appear in the auto world towards the end of 2015. However, these are just speculations since even the 2015 version is not yet out. When it comes to the hybrid version, its development might take some time to complete. The hybrid might therefore appear after 2016. As for its price, it is still too early to tell since there are two more years to go. Also, Toyota has not provided any official information about the price. All the manufacturers are concerned with right now is to give 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser an immense upgrade since failure to do so might cause this car to be wiped out in the near future. Nevertheless, the estimated cost for the base model is about $ 70 000.
