New Toyota Land Cruiser Sahara Horizon 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Limited-edition SUV farewells 200 Series

The Sahara Horizon stands out from the LandCruiser 200 Series crowd.

Toyota Australia has released a limited-edition LandCruiser that serves as the swansong for the 200 Series.

Dubbed Sahara Horizon and restricted to just 400 units, the special off-roader is based on the LC200’s Sahara full-time flagship but commands a $5500 premium, at $129,090 plus on-road costs.

Buyers are compensated for the extra spend with a longer list of standard equipment, with the Sahara Horizon exclusively featuring a dark-finish grille insert, black headlight and smoked-chrome front foglight surrounds, puddle lights with the LandCruiser logo, and ‘Horizon’ badging.

Inside, the Sahara Horizon picks up a heated steering wheel, black semi-aniline leather-accented upholstery with contrast stitching, a black headliner and ‘LandCruiser’ embossed headrests.

Like all LC200s, the Sahara Horizon is motivated by a 200kW/650Nm 4.5-litre twin-turbo V8 diesel engine, which is mated to a six-speed torque-converter automatic transmission and a four-wheel-drive system with low range.

Toyota's history in Australia started with the original LandCruisers brought into the country to work on the Snowy Mountains Hydro Scheme back in 1958, and since then LandCruiser has played a role in the lives of people across the country from the bush to the beach,” said Toyota Australia vice-president of sales and marketing Sean Hanley.

“This new special-edition Horizon model offers LandCruiser customers stylish and more distinctive visual appeal in a vehicle that remains as capable and competent on and off the road, wherever they choose to travel.”

Standard equipment in the Sahara Horizon otherwise includes a multi-terrain monitor, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED lighting, side steps, a sunroof, satellite navigation, a premium sound system, a rear DVD player, power-adjustable front seats with heating and cooling, and four-zone climate control.

Advanced driver-assist systems extend to autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, high-beam assist, a reversing camera and front and rear parking sensors.

As reported, the LandCruiser 300 Series is expected to be revealed in August with a hybrid powertrain that incorporates a twin-turbo V6 petrol engine.
