What about the Philippines? 

Well, according to a report by topgear.ph, the Toyota-made luxury SUV is indeed coming to the local market. More specifically, it will be seeing a Philippine launch sometime in August this year. That said though, no one yet knows how it will differ from the one already launched.  

Moreover, the report also says that the new Land Cruiser’s price might increase by Php 700,000. While the figure has yet to be confirmed, do remember that price increases generally happen when a model is updated, especially as a new generation version.

Lastly, some Toyota dealerships are reportedly already accepting reservations for the upcoming 2022 Land Cruiser. As of this writing, we also have yet to confirm which Toyota dealerships are doing so.  

If you’re particularly interested in the new Land Cruiser, be aware that it has ditched the good ol’ V8 engine that propels the outgoing model. The new model now comes with either a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 diesel mill capable of making up to 305 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque, or a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 gasoline that’s capable of producing up to 409 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque. Both the diesel and gasoline versions use a 10-speed automatic gearbox.

The new SUV also departs from the very utilitarian look of the outgoing model. Sure, it’s still boxy, but its front end now bears a clean and sleek contemporary design. It also seems that the interior got de-cluttered and significantly modernized. 

In the coming days before the said launch, we can expect more updates from Toyota Motor Philippines regarding the all-new 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser. So, to keep yourself updated, keep reading here on Philkotse.com.
