Looks like it will be like the Hilux and the Patrol to me, it will take me a while to like the look of it.

Information I have received from a Toyota Dealer is that it will be a 3.3L V6 Twin Turbo Diesel due for release here in Australia September / October

Funny thing is I started with a 3.3L Turbo Diesel Patrol back in the 80's

cheers

I reckon it looks pretty ordinary for a Cruiser. It would need a lift kit immediately to get over the speed humps in the carpark. Looks more like a people mover in the front end with lousy approach angles.

Time will tell.... They do look like Middle East shipments which have all that side and front bling on the 200 too.

Below quote from Carsales on FB

The highly-anticipated Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series has been exposed ahead of its global premiere in August.
And it’s a case of subtle evolution rather than radical change for the exterior design of the all-new 2021 Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series, as these latest photos posted on the Kurdistan Automotive Blog and CarSpias forum show.
While the overall shape and especially the side profile of the new Toyota LC300 is almost unchanged from the current 200 Series LandCruiser, the finer details add a modern edge to the 4x4 off-roader, which will be sold exclusively with a circa-230kW 3.3-litre turbo-diesel V6 when it arrives in Australia later this year.

Typical Toyota, not much new at all, safe and boring with no new or initiative design, features or function. Lets just hope it will feel like the steering wheel is connected to the front wheels if you want to push it on a twisty road

Let's hope so Matt. Toyota would have spent 8 years making sure it is predictable, reliable and dependable. Nothing better in a vehicle than lack of surprises when away.

Boring is good in vehicle reliability. That's what people buy, and Toyota sells.

You can look at their web site where they talk about an evolutionary approach to design, it's in their DNA. No, it IS their DNA. It is called kaizen. Fingers crossed the 300 isn't a half-arsed product release that isn't fit for purpose. If you want to gamble on new untried concepts that are unproven, and if you prefer form over function, then you'll have to look outside the 300 I'd guess.
