Toyota is no longer accepting orders for the current generation Land Cruiser 200, Japanese portal BestCarWeb reports. Currently, SUVs are being assembled according to already formed applications, but soon the model will be removed from the assembly line. Until the end of spring, the old Toyota Land Cruiser 200 will be replaced by a new generation, which is unofficially called the Land Cruiser 300.
According to one of the Japanese dealers, the last prepaid copies of the Land Cruiser 200 will be produced at the end of March, and by the end of spring, Toyota will switch to a new generation of SUVs: orders will open in April, and serial assembly will start in May. The company itself still does not name the date of the premiere of the next Land Cruiser, nor the timing of its appearance on the market.
The new information differs from the one previously distributed by BestCarWeb. In early March, the portal reported that suppliers were delaying some parts of the new Land Cruiser, and in this regard, Toyota was forced to postpone the start of accepting orders from April to May, sales to July, and deliveries to the end of summer.
In February, the Land Cruiser 300 was noticed in our country: spies managed to photograph a camouflaged prototype not only outside, but also inside. According to preliminary data, with the change of generation, the SUV will move to the TNGA architecture, lose its frame structure and increase in size: it will stretch by 20 millimeters in length, five millimeters in width, but at the same time it will become 10 millimeters lower. The wheelbase, in turn, will grow by 50 millimeters.
According to rumors, the novelty will appear on the market with a 3.5-liter “twin-turbo six” V35A-FTS with 415 horsepower and a 3.3-liter diesel engine. It is also possible that a hybrid modification based on the 3.5 engine will appear, paired with a 180-horsepower electric motor about 480 forces.
As for the current Land Cruiser 200, it is still available on the official Toyota website in Ukraine. Prices for the model range from $ 63,200 to $ 87,200.
