Stop your searching: This is EVERY leaked Land Cruiser 300 Series image we've seen so far


Toyota just can't seem to keep a cover on the new LandCruiser 300 Series, with the V6 diesel-powered beasties snapped again, and again, and again, in the past 24 hours as the countdown to its launch continues.

To make you lives a little easier, we've collated all the best ones we've seen so far in this one handy article, so you see what we see, when we see it.

All the pictures - most of which have first appeared on Toyota LandCruiser fan pages on Facebook - confirm what we were expecting from the new model, which looks bigger, bolder and, well, more squared-off in places, especially at the front.

What they don't show - at least not yet - is a clear look at the interior, but rest assured we expect a massive tech overhaul in the cabin, led by a new a 12.3-inch screen with navigation and a JBL sound system, a 3D terrain monitor and even fingerprint scanning to prevent theft will be included.

We also know that the new LC300 is expected to be bigger in almost every key dimension than the vehicle it replaces, stretching some 4970mm in length, 1985mm in width and 1870mm in height, and it will ride on a 2900mm wheelbase.

The LC300 is also expected to be powered by a newly developed V6 diesel that promises to out-perform the popular V8 in the out-going 200 Series.

Japanese site Creative 311 quotes dealer sources who have reportedly leaked the outputs of the new V6 diesel engine that was first reported in CarsGuide.

Reports suggest the new 3.3-litre diesel engine will produce a whopping 230kW and 687Nm, paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The current LC200 is fitted with a bigger V8 diesel, but produces 200kW and 650Nm.

The second engine offered - at least at launch - is expected to be a petrol-powered twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6. That engine will produce a monstrous 313kW and 589Nm, again paired with a 10-speed automatic.

The news adds substance to comments made by Toyota Australia's VP of sales and marketing, Sean Hanley, that the new model would further the LC story.

"The LandCruiser needs to be capable. It needs to be able to perform, drive, tow, as expected of a LandCruiser," Mr Hanley said.

"It has a huge heritage. It's a legend, actually, of capability in the Australian landscape. It’s clear that the number of cylinders are cubic capacity are not the only things that determine the powertrain performance.

"The powertrain of any future LandCruiser will be built to deliver. It will deliver on power, torque, towing and off- and on-road capabilities. And I am supremely confident that with whatever we do, it will continue to remain a very capable vehicle all round."

We're expecting the new LandCruiser 300 Series to debut as early as this month, ahead of an on-sale date - at least internationally - later this year.

For now, though, feast your eyes on these images and get excited.
