Toyota has presented the most affordable modification of the new Land Cruiser 300 for the Middle East. Such an SUV is equipped with a naturally aspirated V6 engine, and the list of equipment is cut: for example, it has stamped wheels instead of light-alloy wheels, and the interior is not leather, but upholstered in fabric and velor. According to unofficial data cited by the Jeeper channel, the budget version of the Toyota Land Cruiser 300 will be sold not only in the United Arab Emirates, but also in Mongolia and Kazakhstan.
The most affordable Land Cruiser 300 has a 4.0-liter V6 gasoline engine, which is familiar tons from the previous generation model. On the new LC 300, it produces 275 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The SUV is said to have retained a nine-inch multimedia system screen and three-zone climate control despite a simplified package. However, some electronic driver assistance systems had to be sacrificed.
The cost of the cheaper version of the Land Cruiser 300 for the United Arab Emirates was revealed a few days earlier: it is only 14 thousand dirhams, or 6.5 percent more expensive than the previous generation model. If we compare “two hundred” with a V8 4.6 engine (239,900 dirhams) and Land Cruiser 300 with a V6 3.4 engine (297,900 dirhams), then the difference will be greater – it reaches 25 percent.
It is known that the Land Cruiser 300 was purchased for the Abu Dhabi and Dubai police, as well as for the Dubai Civil Defense Forces. A batch of 50 new vehicles was handed over to the authorities by a local Toyota dealer.
The specifications of the cars were not reported, but most likely, these are the top-end versions at the moment with a 3.5-liter V6 petrol turbo engine, which produces 415 horsepower and provides the SUV with acceleration from zero to “hundreds” in 6.7 seconds.
