Hi everyone,

I guess we all knew this but these are some confirmed details on the new model. It seems that Toyota will "drip feed" more details between now and November.

DIE-HARD Landcruiser fans rejoice: Toyota has confirmed what has been widely speculated for more than 12 months – that the upcoming 200-Series off-roader will be powered by an even more powerful version of the all-new 4.5-litre turbo-diesel V8 that debuted in April in the upgraded 70-Series Landcruiser wagon and Ute. Although Toyota Australia has announced only that the redesigned Landcruiser 200 will go on sale here in November with “more powerful petrol and diesel V8 engines”, full specifications have been revealed overseas that show Toyota’s first diesel V8 develops up to 210kW at 3600rpm, along with a whopping 650Nm of torque between 1600 and 2800rpm. Toyota does not divulge whether, as is expected, the eighth-generation Landcruiser’s D-4D diesel V8 is a twin-turbo version of the 70-Series’ single-turbo V8, but confirms it will be mated to a new six-speed automatic transmission. In Australia’s 70-Series, the “D-4D” V8 delivers 151kW at 3400rpm and 430Nm between 1200rpm and 3200rpm. Furthermore, Toyota claims the redesigned Landcruiser’s diesel V8 returns European combined-cycle fuel consumption of just 10.2L/100km – a four per cent improvement on the 4.2-litre inline six-cylinder turbo-diesel it replaces. What’s more, the current 100-Series Landcruiser’s 4.7-litre petrol V8, which could arrive earlier than the diesel in Australia, has been upgraded for employment in the new Cruiser. Now featuring “intelligent variable valve timing (VVT-i)”, it delivers 212kW at 5400rpm and 445Nm at 3400rpm in Europe. Toyota says that with European combined cycle fuel consumption of 14.4L/100km it is 12 per cent more fuel efficient than the 100-Series’ petrol V8. It will drive through a five speed automatic transmission and both V8s are Euro IV emissions-compliant. Other new figures reveal the European spec 200-Series rides on the same 2850mm wheelbase but will be 4950mm long (up 60mm), 1970mm wide (up 30mm) and between 1865mm and 1910mm high (up 15mm) – the latter when the vehicle is fitted with a world first “4-Wheel Active Height Control and Adaptive Variable Suspension (4W AHC and AVS)” suspension system. Toyota Australia does not reveal if the adaptive and height-adjustable suspension system will be available here but, as reported, has confirmed Aussie 200s will come with the Australian developed “Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS)”, a world-first “Crawl Control” system and a new torque-sensing “Torsion Limited Slip Differential (LSD)”.

We have been told that we have one in the first shipment Yah! Yah!
The dealer has contacted ARB about accessories eg the tow bar and they have no details as of yesterday. Have been told ours will be with dealer around 24th October so waiting to see if all will be ready for mid November when we pick up BT.
Dealer told us the new Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS)”, will already be on landcruisers in this shipment but from then on will be an option upgrade? for GXL's. Price still unknown.
If anyone interested we will be trading in 100 series TD LC 2005 62000k's many accessories for $51,000 if you want it give us an e-mail!!! (Gunnedah NSW)
