Reinforcing the legendary status of one of Omans’ best-loved vehicles, Toyota has launched the new generation iconic Land Cruiser in Oman.
Throughout its 70-year history, it has served as an indispensable tool that supports people’s livelihoods in remote destinations, contributes to humanitarian aid and disaster relief efforts, and enriches people’s lives through experiences only the Land Cruiser can provide.
A cumulative total of approximately 10.4 million units have been enjoyed by customers in 170 countries all over the world, and particularly in the Middle East where the Land Cruiser has attained a loyal following thanks to its reliability, durability, and superlative off-road performance.
Takami Yokoo, Chief Engineer in charge of development, commented: “The Land Cruiser must remain true to its roots. The launch of the all-new Land Cruiser is a celebration of its 70th year as an icon, and I sincerely hope it can be a source of vitality and support for our customers around the world.”
“We are excited to introduce the all-new Land Cruiser, an iconic vehicle that has earned its place in the hearts of drivers around the world and remains one of the region’s most popular SUVs,” said Kei Fujita, Chief Representative, Middle East and Central Asia Representative Office, Toyota Motor Corporation. “The Land Cruiser’s go-anywhere capability truly delivers the joy of mobility, bringing unrivalled performance, safety, and comfort to drivers and passengers alike.”
The 2022 Land Cruiser is equipped with a choice of three powertrain options, including two newly developed V6 twin-turbo engines. The V6 twin-turbo 3.5-liter petrol engine achieves class-leading performance that surpasses that of a conventional V8, producing 409 hp and up to 650 nm. Meanwhile, the V6 twin-turbo engine 3.3-liter diesel variant, which will be available to buy in the region soon, is capable of 302 hp and up to 700 nm. Both of these newly developed engines are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle is also available with a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter V6 petrol engine that produces 271 hp and up to 385 nm mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

A new AUTO mode enhances the capabilities of Multi-Terrain Select by adjusting according to road conditions such as sand, rock, dirt, and mud. The vehicle also features crawl control and turn assist functions.
The all-new interior cocoons passengers in a sophisticated and comfortable space unaffected by the external environment. The cabin offers a range of advanced features such as wireless charging for smartphones, Active Noise Control, and a 4-zone automatic air conditioning system with rear control switches. The cluster gauge features a 7-inch colour Multi-information Display (MID) and a 12.3-inch Multimedia display.

This is complemented by Toyota Safety Sense, an advanced safety technology package that includes a Pre-Collision System (PCS) that introduces new features including Emergency Steering Assist (ESA) and Intersection Turn Assistance to help prevent collisions with vehicles, and pedestrians. The package also includes Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) with Full-Speed Range, Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), and Automatic High Beam (AHB).
