The 2024 "Land Cruiser LC70" is available for order in the Middle East, with automatic transmission, about RMB 330,000!
As one of the most classic models of Toyota, LC70 is often talked about by fans! People who mainly like it are relatively pure, and classic has become its soul! Now this car has also completed the upgrade, on the basis of retaining retro elements, but also added more fresh elements, it can be said that it is full of sincerity! Xiaobian has just seen from the official website, the first batch of models have been officially accepted for reservation on the official website, but unfortunately only in the Middle East, as for when it can be introduced into the domestic market, it is still unknown.
The picture above is the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser LC70 unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show, which became the most dazzling car in the whole show because it retains the retro concept. In appearance, it is still a familiar "tool car", but in order to expand its suitable group, the designers have injected some fresh elements into this car. Let's take a look at the front of the car, the new car has added LED daytime running lights for the first time, changed the style of the grille to resemble the new Prado, and the TOYOTA letters between the grille are just right! The wide-body front bumper is simple and rough, making the whole front of the car domineering.
The image above shows only the traditional five-door version, but the Middle East also includes a three-door version, which is rarer in comparison, with only the length and wheelbase of the two versions changed, and the rest of the design is exactly the same. We see that the LC70 design remains unchanged on the entire side, and the wheels are equipped with 16-inch alloy models. The wheel arches and the built-in waistline above are very classic. The large door glass is also the main feature of the LC70. So being able to see such a car at this stage is undoubtedly the biggest surprise for its old car fans. At the rear, the iconic side-by-side door design is still available, with an exposed external spare wheel and a raised rear bumper that echoes the front of the car.
The interior is still full of age, with a pointer-style instrument cluster in the front, a 9-inch central touchscreen in the center (the beggar version does not have one), and the system supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while other features include a basic air conditioning system, 2 speakers, power windows, and dual airbags. The intelligent system has nothing to do with this car!
In addition, the entire seat has been upgraded, not only in size, but more importantly, the return of velvet material, which is more luxurious than leather at the beginning, and the same material is also used on the top of the car. It's also a different kind of luxury. At the position of the gear lever, we finally saw the figure of the automatic transmission, and behind it is the mechanical handbrake.
POWERTRAINED, THE LC70 IS POWERED BY A 2.8-LITER DIESEL ENGINE WITH A MAXIMUM POWER OF 150 KW and a maximum torque of 500 Nm, while the three-door version is powered by a 1GR-FE 4.0-litre V6 engine with a maximum power of 170 kW and a maximum torque of 360 Nm. Traditionally, a six-speed Super ECT gearbox and all-wheel drive with transfer case have been mated to the car, and electronic equipment such as traction control, hill descent control, and differential lock have also become standard.
Judging from the information on the official website, the price of the three-door version on the official website of the United Arab Emirates is 169,900 dirhams, which is equivalent to about 330,000 yuan. At present, the first batch of models have been sold in the Middle East, which is undoubtedly good news for the Chinese, but according to the past Xi, such a car introduced into the country, the price may double, assuming the price of 600,000 yuan, will this car still have a market in China?
