Right off the bat, you will notice that the front end gets a more updated look with the addition of a new and larger grille and sleeker headlamps.

Inside, the most remarkable update seen on the leaked blueprints is the push-start button which is embedded with a GR badge. This could signify that the upcoming model from Toyota will come with new performance upgrades as compared to the current version that will shape its place in the global market.

One of the most notable changes under the hood is the likely discontinuation of the model’s V8 engine. It will instead be replaced with a twin-turbocharged V6 engine that could make 250 hp and 626 Nm of torque. Again, the brand has yet to release an official statement about the next-gen Land Cruiser’s specs. As such, the reports and the leaked info about the vehicle are just rumors for now.
