Toyota Introduces All-New '24 Land Cruiser

By SEMA News Editors

Returning after a brief pause, Toyota has introduced the all-new '24 Land Cruiser.

Staying true to its roots as a capable off-roader, the Land Cruiser boasts a new look, increased technology, the latest off-road features and a balance of performance and efficiency.

The 250 series Land Cruiser was completely reimagined and redesigned for the '24 model year. All Land Cruisers will now exclusively feature a turbocharged i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain mated to a full-time four-wheel drive system. This premium hybrid powertrain produces 326 hp and 465 lb.-ft. of torque.

A staple of Land Cruiser's heritage is its go-anywhere capability. Engineers embraced this legacy when they included center and rear-locking differentials as standard for all grades. Another new addition to the Land Cruiser is the available front stabilizer bar disconnect mechanism (SDM), which increases suspension flex with the push of a button. Multi-Terrain Select, which is now functional in both 4WD High and 4WD Low, offers adjustable settings to help control wheel spin on a variety of terrains.

Land Cruiser adopts an updated CRAWL Control function that acts as a low-speed, off-road cruise control with five selectable speeds. Downhill Assist Control is another standard off-road feature. Additional traction aids include vehicle stability control (VSC) and an automatic limited-slip differential (Auto LSD). Land Cruiser's front overhang was decreased for greater approach, providing up to a 31-degree approach, a 25-degree breakover and 22-degree departure angles.

Additionally, the available Multi-Terrain Monitor system can act like a spotter by leveraging cameras to display the environment around the vehicle on the touchscreen, exposing potential obstacles looming ahead.

Inside the vehicle, the Land Cruiser is equipped with the latest technology and premium accessories. A new 8- or 12.3-in. multimedia touchscreen displays Toyota's latest Audio Multimedia system. The system also supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and pairs with an available 14-speaker JBL audio system. Qi wireless charging is available with enhanced power output. Dual USB-C charging ports are included in the front row and two for second-row passengers. There are two more USB-Cs available and a standard 2,400-watt AC inverter house type plug (120V) in the cargo area. An available 12.3-in. digital gauge cluster with four different styles and customizable widgets is also available.

Standard on all grades is a smart key system with push-button start. With an active trial or subscription on select models, an available digital key connects with compatible smartphones to allow vehicle entry, tailgate access and vehicle starting. The digital key can also be remotely shared with others. Additionally, a smart card key is available, which is a credit card-sized smart key that allows the driver to carry their key with them wherever they go.
