Auto Expo 2023: The all-new Toyota Land Cruiser LC300, which made its world debut in 2021, was recently unveiled for Indian buyers at the 2023 Auto Expo in Greater Noida. The SUV gained a GR Sport and a 70th-anniversary edition in select global markets with a generation update. Official bookings for the new Land Cruiser LC300 have already begun in India. According to the manufacturer, the SUV will arrive in India as a completely imported unit and will be priced at Rs 2.17 crore (ex-showroom). In India, it will be available in five exterior colours – Precious White Pearl, Super White, Dark Red Mica Metallic, Attitude Black, and Dark Blue Mica – and three interior colour schemes. Two engine choices are offered for the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 in global markets – a 3.3-litre V6 diesel engine and a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine. While the former is capable of delivering a maximum power output of 409bhp and 650Nm, the latter produces 305bhp of maximum power and 700Nm of peak torque. The India-spec model gets a ten-speed automatic transmission and only comes with the oil burner, which sends power to all four wheels.
