Toyota Land Cruiser

The Land Cruiser enjoys a status in the global market as a that has proved its tough, and reliable qualities in the most environments. This pedigree has the platform for the development of an all-new Land Cruiser that further than ever to deliver a balance of go-anywhere with the poise, comfort and motorists want in normal driving.

Makoto Arimoto, new Land Cruiser‘s Engineer explains: Generally it’s considered difficult to both good off-road and performance in the same vehicle. But the new Land Cruiser, rather making a half-hearted attempt at 50:50 ratio between on and capabilities, we put no less than 100 per into developing both. We we have succeeded in refining and both of these seemingly qualities.

The success of new Toyota Cruiser is built on three product values:

Quality, and reliability, building on Land long and distinguished history and for lasting performance.

Unrivalled of on and off-road driving performance, by advanced suspension and driver aid

Refined and versatile interior, a functional but luxurious and comfortable environment.

New Toyota Land benefits from a higher of advanced but user friendly and guidance features that the driver tackle the most routes. At the same time new technology and on-board monitors Land Cruiser more and easier to manoeuvre through urban traffic, too. interior packaging provides flexible seating and luggage arrangements, with generous for up to seven on board.

Most enjoy a high specification of features, including a surround premium audio system, automatic air conditioning and a DVD/gaming package for rear seat creating a welcoming environment the vehicle whatever the driving outside might be like.

The design of the new Toyota Land is true to its heritage and projects the of a vehicle that is robust, and entirely at home in any environment.

At the there is a new over-size bumper with integral fog lamps, emphasises Land Cruiser’s stance. The impact of the front on the off-road driving approach has been minimised by sharply the lower section. The new front has vertical bars, highlighted in and silver finishes on higher versions, framed by headlamp with cylindrical high and low lamps and turn indicators extend into the wings so are visible from the side.

The can be unlocked and opened one-handed, the smart key or a button release to the bottom left hand of the glass. An integral roof houses the rear screen and high-mounted LED stop light.

The mirror-mounted turn indicators and the lamps use LEDs in place of bulbs. These light up quickly, giving other more time to react to braking, and they use less

Seamless bodywork with panel gaps and a series of enhancements have reduced the coefficient of drag (Cd) 0.37 (current model) to which in return supports a improvement in high-speed cruising economy.

Aerodynamic efficiency has improved by reducing the overall by 15mm, and by introducing front and spoilers to channel airflow the body and direct it cleanly from the trailing edge of the Deflectors inside the engine correct the flow of air through the grille to reduce turbulence, and the of the front bumper includes corners to push air away the sides of the front tyres, for a smoother rearward airflow. and rear spats are fitted to airflow around the tyres and cut

The wheelbase (2,790mm) and rear (1,075mm) remain the same and design of the new front bumper that, although the front is longer by 45mm (at 895mm), the 32 angle is unchanged. The departure is 25 (24 with electrically modulated air suspension) and the ramp breakover is 22.

The corners of the bonnet have raised, which makes it for the driver to precisely locate the front extremities when in tight urban areas, or close to off-road obstacles.

New Land Cruiser is equipped a comprehensive and technically advanced of active and passive on and off-road features. Advanced engineering and electronic systems provide a level of protection while at the time making driving rewarding, helping the driver and enjoy the limits of the vehicle’s

Body structure

Collisions tall vehicles, such as and passenger cars can result in the vehicle riding up over the one. To counter this Toyota works to ensure the systems of both vehicles in a collision can be used to their potential.

To this end, the crumple zone in the new Land frame is set at a height equivalent to of an average passenger car. The and body are designed to effectively and absorb impact energies to protect all parties involved, those on the receiving of a collision in a vehicle.

Numerous measures been taken to control deformation in a frontal collision, preserving the structural integrity of the Reinforcements in the A-pillars have a construction between the roof reinforcement and cowl to give buckling strength and improved sustainability when buckled, helps limit body In addition, the lower front reinforcements also have a construction and high-strength outer panel reinforcements have introduced.

Using high-tensile steel for the front pillar and rail reinforcement improves collision performance. The roof reinforcement has a closed top and bottom giving added strength and cross-members are strategically placed to distribute impact forces measures which both help to reduce the risk deformation.

A highly effective load-path cross-member structure impact energy from the and inner rocker-to-frame load brackets carry energy the outer rocker.

Occupant is further enhanced by the foam door panels and door reducing the risk of pelvic in a side collision, and crushable armrests.

Pedestrian protection

New Land Cruiser‘s cowl and front wings are all to absorb as much energy as in the event of a collision with a

The bonnet has a deep, energy-absorbing with longitudinal reinforcement Crush points and holes the bonnet striker reinforcement there is an ample impact zone.

The front wing brackets have crush for effective energy absorption, and the themselves incorporate energy-absorbing with a construction designed to down in a head impact, so the reaction force sustained by the

Airbags and active headrests

New Cruiser is equipped as standard seven SRS airbags: driver’s front airbag, a new driver’s airbag, passenger front front side airbags and curtain airbags, giving protection to outer seat in all three rows.

The front are fitted with seatbelts pretensioners and new-design active that help prevent injury. Extra protection is through a new seatback design, to a headrest shaped to sit as close as to the occupant’s head in normal In a rear impact, the force of the on the seatback causes the headrest to up and forward to close the gap between the and headrest, thus significantly the risk of whiplash.

High Discharge headlamps and Adaptive

An Adaptive Front-lighting System works in conjunction with the HID swivelling the low beam in line vehicle speed and steering to provide better lighting bends and when turning at AFS also has a dynamic levelling which maintains a constant height, whatever the load on or change in vehicle posture.

and stability control systems

New Land Cruiser‘s braking system uses new ventilated front discs width increased to 32mm. callipers with larger are used for improved stopping and fade-free performance. At the rear are 312mm ventilated discs floating callipers.

The vehicle as standard with a full of braking, traction control and systems: ABS with EBD and Brake Traction Control (TRC) and Stability Control (VSC).

Further brake systems are provided specifically to off-road performance and ease of use in conditions, including Multi-terrain Active Traction Control Hill-start Assist Control and Downhill Assist Control Details of their operation can be in the Off-Road Performance section.


Much of Land legendary off-road toughness can be to its robust and durable body-on-frame This concept has been over from the previous model, but with rigidity by 11 per cent.

Another advantage the monocoque design used by rival SUVs is the ability of the frame to absorb vibrations and from the engine, drivetrain and surface, so limiting NVH disturbance in the To further absorb NVH and aid a comfortable the frame-to-body mounts are packed insulating rubber.

Using tensile steel within the saves weight as well as bodyshell rigidity.

New Toyota Cruiser uses an extensively version of the front independent wishbone and rear four-link suspension system that was in its predecessor model, retuned for ride comfort and better feel.

At the front a long … has been retained and the absorbers and springs have optimised. The shocks themselves are than before. The lower arm and have been reinforced and all the have been retuned.

To achieve better handling the roll steer ratio has modified from five to degrees.

At the rear the long … has been enhanced optimised springs and shock with, again, larger adopted. Bushings have retuned and the axle housing has reinforced for added strength and

On-road the works to minimise body improve steering response and the effects of driving over road surfaces.

Individual cylinders are fitted to the anti-roll each with an upper and chamber. The front and rear chambers and front and rear chambers are connected to each by separate hydraulic lines, containing an accumulator.

As the vehicle to roll in a turn, equal forces occur on the outer As a result, the fluid in the hydraulic remains still, holding the and rear cylinder pistons in so the anti-roll bars suppress the … and body roll is

On rough surfaces, however, a uneven force is experienced the front and rear wheels. In case, the electrically controlled valves rapidly open and to absorb the movement of fluid in the lines. This dampens by absorbing bumps in the road making for a more comfortable

Adaptive Variable Suspension

An Variable Suspension (AVS) is fitted to LC5 models, allowing the to fine-tune the Land Cruiser’s characteristics. Three settings are controlled by a switch on the centre Normal mode for everyday Comfort mode for extra when cruising; and Sport for better body control and steering response when

AVS automatically adjusts suspension at all four wheels independently, data from numerous to continuously optimise the damping of each shock absorber by the appropriate actuator.

Working in to driver inputs, vehicle motion and road surface AVS activates adjustable damping to a range of specific control

control increases the rear-end force to minimise squat acceleration.

Selecting Sport automatically increases the different inner and outer shock damping through corners to reduce vehicle roll.

The AVS also incorporates Roll Control, to give a vehicle that matches the driver’s feeling. By controlling the damping the phase difference between angle and pitch angle cornering is minimised.

Electronically Rear Air Suspension

An electronically rear air suspension system to Toyota Land Cruiser LC5 works in conjunction with the AVS to optimum control of the rear and give uncompromised stability and quality, regardless of how many are on board, or how much cargo is carried. It also excels in high frequency vibrations to road-generated NVH.

The system has control modes:

Auto which maintains a constant body height, regardless of of occupants or size of load.

Height Control, which the driver select a Normal, or Low vehicle height setting.

Control, which ensures the stability and ride comfort by returning the vehicle from or Low vehicle height to the Normal once a certain speed has reached.

Height Control OFF which disables height when lifting or towing the

Variable Flow Control Steering

New Toyota Land uses the same hard-wearing power steering system as its but with the benefit of revision and the of Variable Flow Control VFC combines direct response and when cruising with operation at parking speeds, a dedicated setting for off-road

The steering gear ratio has modified for a more agile to steering inputs, and the steering support bushings have returned to reduce steering and vibration under braking, a more comfortable ride.

VFC is an of traditional speed-sensitive power that takes into factors such as vehicle steering angle and steering to deliver an idea steering flow in all driving conditions. the flow in this way adjusts how or light the steering feels to the

When the Land Cruiser is in a straight line, VFC is in stand-by reducing the power draw on the and thus improving fuel When cornering or manoeuvring, VFC instant response to steering with the correct fluid rate. At low speeds the flow is increased to reduce steering making the wheel easier to

As vehicle speed rises, the rate progressively decreases to a more direct and responsive feel.

Because it is hard to terrain conditions if the steering is constantly changing, VFC incorporates a off-road setting that is activated when the driver L4 mode. This setting the system to give a constant flow rate regardless of speed, steering angle or rate. This constant of steering assistance helps the gain a better idea of how grip the tyres have the steering wheel.

In addition to the NVH benefits from its body-on-frame new Toyota Land Cruiser features a number of measures to cut wind and road noise, in a very quiet cabin

Air cavities have been into the bonnet silencer, engine noise. Sound materials are placed in the A, B, C and D-pillars and the sill and head sections to the transmission of noise through the Sound dampening and insulating are used throughout the cabin, in the door trims, roof luggage compartment side and dashboard silencer.

Measures to wind noise include an windscreen which has an inner of film sandwiched between the The step between the windscreen and the and side rain gutters has kept to a minimum, and a front and undercover are fitted to smooth the under the front of the car.


An SUV designed to tackle tough off-road terrain has to a generous ground clearance. But is not just about the distance the lowest point of the vehicle and the ground: there are three measurements that dictate the of off-road ability: the approach ramp breakover angle and angle.

The new Toyota Land has a minimum ground clearance of The approach angle, which the maximum gradient the vehicle can with the underside of the front hitting the ground, is 32. The ramp angle (measured from the of the underbody to the contact points of the and rear tyres), which the gradient the vehicle can crest the ground contacting the underbody, is 22.

And the angle, which governs the gradient the vehicle can negotiate the underside of the rear bumper the ground, is 25, or 24 on models equipped air suspension.

New Land Cruiser can be driven at a maximum bank of 42 and at a maximum forward or reverse angle of 42. Its maximum wading is 700mm.

Even with its ground clearance, there is a risk of the underside of the vehicle into contact with the when driving over rough terrain. For this both the front and rear and the ladder frame cross-member been designed to slide over any obstacles. Many SUVs have box-shaped which means they can become caught on stop the causing damage at the same

The new Toyota Land Cruiser’s cross-member is shaped to slide up and such hazards without damage.

As detailed in the on-road section, new Land Cruiser has a independent front suspension and a four-link rear system a lateral rod, giving reliability and durability with the of long wheel … is required for outstanding off-road

Working in conjunction with the new Dynamic Suspension System below), Toyota Land ‘s wheel articulation all the tyres can gain the best ground contact, even the most severe terrain.

Dynamic Suspension System

details of the Kinetic Dynamic System (KDSS) operation can be in the On-road Performance section. In driving, KDSS, fitted to LC4 and LC5 optimises the effect of the front and anti-roll bars to increase articulation (the vertical an individual wheel can move the others remain in contact the ground).

Driving over ground generates unequal and rear wheel forces, causes the piston in each cylinder to create an opposite This counteracts the resistance of the bar and allows the suspension to move With both front and anti-roll bars virtually the available wheel … is ensuring all four tyres can in contact with the ground possible.

Adaptive Variable and Electronically Modulated Rear Air

Both the Adaptive Variable (AVS) and electronically modulated air suspension systems on the Land LC5 have bespoke off-road to maximise the vehicle’s all-terrain

The AVS has a new Damper Optimisation Control that automatically adjusts absorber damping force to vehicle speed when L4 is selected. At slow speeds the are optimised for crawling over the terrain, while at moderate they adjust to suit driving conditions. This of control allows for uncompromised performance while keeping the and jolts caused by rough, surfaces to a minimum.

In addition, driving off-road, the valve on the pipe connection between the and right hand rear air units remains open to maximum wheel … and


The new Toyota Cruiser is engineered to excel sand, rocks or any other conditions it might encounter; maximum traction at all times to the level of off-road performance for the model is renowned.

The grip, and torque requirements generated by terrain will make demands on the permanent four-wheel system. For instance, soft such as sand, requires as power as possible to be transferred to the allowing a large amount of to let the tyres dig in and achieve maximum By contrast, the slow traverse of or slippery surfaces requires regulation of power to the wheels to wheelspin and ensure a constant, level of grip.

Full-time drive with Torsen slip differential

The new Toyota Cruiser’s proven permanent drive system uses a limited slip differential in the centre differential. The LSD uses low oil to reduce friction and support fuel efficiency.

The unit has a transfer shift actuator for High-Low gear ratio and the shift effort itself has reduced by 30 per cent, giving performance in cold weather.

In normal conditions, torque is 40:60 front to rear, but the LSD can vary the ratio from to approximately 30:70 in order to the optimum distribution in any given scenario.

The four-wheel drive also has a new rear differential, for greater reliability and strength a 34 per cent increase in torque An additional rear diff is fitted to LC5 models, increasing especially in extreme off-road

Instead of a conventional transfer lever, the new Land Cruiser has an dial switch, located with the centre and rear locking switches on the centre Using these switches in lets the driver choose H4L, L4F and L4L modes – is High or Low gear ratio the centre differential Free or

Active Traction Control

The Traction Control (A-TRC) uses brake and engine and the distribution of appropriate torque all four wheels to maintain when pulling away or on low-grip surfaces.

The system constant speed signals each wheel, so it can detect might be spinning and which traction. By braking the spinning controlling engine output and torque to those with it automatically provides maximum on rough terrain. It also avoid wheelspin when away or accelerating, even on roads and muddy tracks.


A standard feature on the Land Cruiser LC5, Select (MTS) is an evolution of the system and a Toyota first.

MTS modifies vehicle acceleration, and traction control to suit the conditions, providing the driver optimum traction and vehicle

The system is activated using the switch on the steering wheel and via the multi-information display. It offers terrain modes: Mud and Sand, Rock, Mogul and Rock. The selected is shown in the display, an additional prompt to the driver of the H4 or L4 four-wheel drive transfer

The Multi-terrain Monitor (full in the Driver Information section) displays the view ahead of the

Mud and Sand mode gives wheel slip level in L4 or H4 to the wheels to dig into the surface and traction. The MTS traction control selective wheel breaking to a necessary degree of wheelspin. functions work in combination to the vehicle from getting down on soft ground.

Rock mode works in the L4 to allow a degree of wheel to maintain tyre momentum and to a greater degree of selective to control wheelspin. This is is particularly useful for maintaining momentum when climbing

Mogul mode, which in L4 range, makes grip the by only allowing a moderate of wheel slip, to maintain a steady vehicle speed. At the time, MTS traction control moderate selective braking to grip. This mode is for any conditions that do not specifically the other MTS modes.

Conversely, when is too little wheelspin to achieve the traction, a less aggressive closer to Mud and Sand is recommended.

In any of the modes, if the vehicle is stuck and the are spinning freely, the centre can be locked for added traction. If the continue to spin after the diff in L4 range, the rear may also be locked (on LC5 models). A Control function may also be to free the vehicle.


Crawl Control, another feature of the Land Cruiser can help the driver ascend or slopes at walking pace, or the vehicle when stuck, having to touch the pedals.

The works in L4 range and is activated by a switch. It gives a range of speed settings, automatically engine and brakes to maintain the speed. With no need for use of the throttle or brake pedals, the can concentrate fully on steering the

Crawl Control has a number of benefits. Its smooth control a slow and steady pace to be avoiding the risk of wheels or locking. This reduces the of body movement on severe helping prevent the vehicle bottoming out and causing damage. It permits wading at a similarly and even speed, reducing the of the engine flooding, or submerged causing damage.

Crawl operates in reverse gear, helping the driver when up over difficult surfaces.


The multi-terrain ABS system fitted to the new Land Cruiser has been to give remarkable stopping across a wide range of surfaces. While the system the wheels from locking braking on tarmac roads in the way as a conventional ABS, it deliberately for a certain degree of wheel-locking on surfaces, helping the tyres purchase by digging in, so increasing power.

Hill-start Assist and Downhill Assist Control

Control and Downhill Assist are fitted to both new LC3 and LC4 grades is fitted with Crawl

Hill-start Control detects any slip of the vehicle during an start and temporarily applies the to all four wheels for a maximum seconds, allowing the driver to away without losing

Downhill Assist Control governs vehicle speed to the Land Cruiser from downhill out of control. Operated by the it can be switched on when L4 is selected in the range. It works at speed than 15mph, with no for the driver to use the brake and accelerator

Forward speed is controlled to 3 and 4mph; reverse speed to 1 and 3mph.


The Monitor, fitted to LC5 versions of new Land Cruiser, works in with MTS to give the driver a view of areas immediately the vehicle that might be to see or obscured from the steering The system uses an array of external cameras that live images to the multi-information on the dashboard, when moving or in reverse.

For the UK market the new Toyota Cruiser is offered with a powertrain: a 3.0-litre D-4D engine matched to a five-speed automatic transmission.

3.0 D-4D

The 2,982cc, 16-valve DOHC rail unit develops at 3,400rpm and 410Nm of torque 1,600 to 2,800rpm. This nought to 62mph acceleration in seconds and a top speed of 109mph.

The is highly durable and meets 4 emissions standards. Compared to the Land Cruiser, CO2 emissions been reduced from 224 to Fuel consumption is significantly too, with the official cycle figure improving 31.4 to 34.9mpg.

The use of new high-pressure, response fuel injectors has a key role in achieving cleaner, fuel-efficient performance.

The engine has two shafts built into the block to reduce vibration. by the timing gear, these at twice the speed of the crankshaft and in directions.

Under light loads, a valve-operated Exhaust Gar (EGR) cooler bypass is to prevent the temperature inside the chamber from falling to an low level, enabling optimum EGR and maintaining the best possible performance.

Five-speed sequential transmission

The five-speed sequential transmission has a number of features promote smooth shifts, low strong performance and good efficiency, whether driving on or

Manual override

The transmission has a manual override function lets the driver assume control and enjoy more through manual shift The system is activated by selecting S in the gate. The driver can then the gear range by selecting the limit to which the transmission operate.

The gear selected is on the central instrument display.

Lock-up Control

Flex Control increases the operating of the lock-up clutch by precisely slippage, improving fuel Under acceleration, the distribution of transmitted between the lock-up (mechanical drive force) and the converter (fluid drive is adjusted according to driving dramatically increasing efficiency. deceleration, the lock-up clutch until the lowest possible speed is reached, increasing the cut-off range for better economy.

AI-SHIFT Control

The Intelligence (AI)-SHIFT Control changes the gear shift map to road conditions and individual styles. Road Condition Control, an integral part of system, promotes a more and responsive drive by avoiding up-shifts when driving and automatically downshifting to automatically the benefit of engine braking travelling downhill.

Eco Driving Indicator

The Eco Driving helps drivers adopt a fuel-efficient driving style, a light on the instrument panel illuminates when accelerator is within its most efficient When acceleration moves this zone, the Eco light out and the display begins to flash.
