South African pricing for the eagerly anticipated Toyota Land Cruiser 300 has been revealed. Priced from R1 283 200 (see full pricing below), the new Land Cruiser is scheduled to make its local debut come August 2021. Locally, five models will be on offer, each available with the option of three trim grades and the choice of two engine options.

GR Sport trim level a first for Toyota’s flagship 4×4.

The opening gambit to the local line-up, the GX-R derivative, Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) says, remains the utility focused model. The ZX (the badge which replaces “VX-R”), meanwhile, takes on a more “image-focused” persona, TSAM says. The most luxurious variant in the range, the ZX-badged derivative features, among others, chrome detailing and “luxury-orientated” interior trim and ZX-specific 20-inch alloy wheels. A first for the Land Cruiser, the LC300 is now available in off-road performance-orientated GR Sport (GR-S) trim. Specified in GR-S trim line, the LC300 comes equipped with model-specific exterior styling and “rugged” 18-inch alloy wheels.

Pricing for the Land Cruiser 300 starts from R 1 283 200…

As standard, all models ship with LED headlamps, which house daytime-running lights; keyless entry; a touch-based infotainment display, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and satellite navigation software; climate control; park distance control; and an electrically adjustable driver’s seat.

Boasting model-specific alloys, the ZX model takes on a more “image-focused” persona, Toyota says.

In addition to the latter items, ZX and GX-R models gain, among others, heating functionality for the multifunction steering wheel; heated and ventilated front and second-row seats; a 12,3-inch infotainment display; a 14-speaker JBL sound system; wireless smartphone charging; and a multi-terrain monitor with panoramic view. Further included with ZX trim are Wi-Fi-enabled rear-seat entertainment with wireless headphones. GR-S specification, meanwhile, adds a “high-tech” E-KDSS system.

ZX’s “luxury-orientated” interior features a Wi-Fi-enabled entertainment setup for the rear passengers.

As a reminder, the Series 300 Land Cruiser is available with the choice of two twin-turbocharged V6 engine options, a 305 kW/650 N.m 3,5-litre petrol and 227 kW/700 N.m diesel. Both engines are linked to a 10-speed automatic transmission, which includes low range.

All Land Cruiser 300 derivatives will be sold with a nine-services/90 000 km service plan and three-year/100 000 km warranty.
