Toyota Australia has revealed the pricing for its largest SUV: the 2022 Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series. This all new LandCruiser rides on a new platform, has some new variants, new technology across the lineup and an all-new turbocharged V6 turbo-diesel engine. Priced from $89,990 plus on-road costs, the LandCruiser 300 is due to arrive in Australian showrooms later this year.

There will be six variants of the 2022 Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series offered locally with the familiar GX, GXL, VX and Sahara models from the now-retired 200 Series LandCruiser joining the range. Unexpectedly also are new models never seen before, which are the range-topping GR Sport and the Sahara ZX models.

Prices have increased across the range. The LandCruiser Sahara has increased the least at $6,917, while the VX which has increased by $10,717. According to Toyota, these increases are due to the new car’s updated feature list.

The new 2022 Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series starts off with the entry-level GX trim, which costs $89,990 plus on-road costs. The GX comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, a 9.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and start, automatic LED headlights, five seats, an electronic parking brake and six cup holders. As far as safety features are concerned, standard across the board is autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control, along with hill-descent control and auto high-beam.

Next in the range is the LandCruiser GXL, which is priced from $101,790 plus on-road costs (up $9,217 from the 200 Series). The GXL adds two extra seats (seven-seats in total), blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, an auto dimming rear view mirror, larger 18-inch wheels, the company’s ‘Multi-Terrain Select’ off-road system and wireless smart phone charging to the GX.

Above the GXL is the 2022 Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series VX, which will cost $113,990 plus on-road costs. It adds a larger 12.3-inch touch screen, a 7.0-inch digital driver’s display, four-zone climate control, a 10-speaker sound system, heated and cooled front seats, an electronic steering column, reverse auto braking, a 360-degree parking camera and remote window control.

The previous range-topping Sahara model of the LandCruiser is not the top spec variant any longer, though it will still set buyers back $131,190 plus on-road costs and adds heated and cooled rear outboard seats, a heated steering wheel, a heads-up display (HUD), an electric-folding third row of seats and a 14-speaker JBL sound system.

The new off-road focused GR Sport model of the 2022 Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series range will cost $137,790 plus on-road costs and only comes with five-seats rather than seven. It does feature front and rear locking differentials, Toyota’s e-KDSS (Electronic Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System) with adaptive damping control, a GR Sport-specific body kit, adaptive high beam and a leather interior.

The new top-spec Sahara ZX will cost from $138,790 plus on-road costs and builds on the Sahara’s standard features with a limited-slip rear differential, larger 20-inch alloy wheels, a hands-free power tailgate, a leather accented interior with a choice of three colours, illuminated side steps and Sahara ZX-specific front and rear bumpers.

All 2022 Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series models come with a twin-turbocharged 3.3-litre diesel V6, which produces 227kW of power and 700Nm of torque (up 27kW and 50Nm from the 200 Series’ 4.5-litre twin turbocharged diesel V8). There is also a new 10-speed torque converter automatic transmission with power sent to all four wheels.

The claimed average fuel consumption for the 300 Series LandCruiser is 8.9L/100km, which is better than the 200 Series’ claimed average of 9.5L/100km. There is also a 110-litre fuel tank.

The towing capacity remains unchanged from the previous LandCruiser and is rated at 3,500kg braked and 750kg unbraked.
