Toyota has begun the first customer deliveries of its all-new LandCruiser 300 Series (GR Sport shown)
Toyota has today made the first customer delivery of the all-new LandCruiser 300 Series, marking the start of retail sales of the legendary SUV.
The resumption of right-hand drive LandCruiser production in Japan in November has seen customer orders start to arrive in Australia, following initial demonstrator only availability in Dealerships to support test drives at launch of the LandCruiser 300 Series in early October.
Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said Toyota appreciated the patience that customers have shown as the company managed the supply challenges caused by COVID-19.
“We would like to thank our customers for their understanding. It has been a challenging few months, with COVID-19 causing production stoppages in Japan and elsewhere across the region,” Mr Hanley said.
“We are pleased to announce that with Toyota’s production in Japan restored to normal levels in December, LandCruisers are now starting to land in Australia ready to be delivered to their new owners.
“Our Dealers have the latest information on customers’ individual orders and expected delivery timing, and we thank our customers again for their patience,” he said.
The all-new LandCruiser 300 Series is offered in the core grades of GX, GXL, VX and Sahara with two new flagships – the luxury Sahara ZX and off-road-focussed GR Sport.
All grades are powered by a new 227kW/700Nm 3.3-litre twin-turbo diesel engine that drives all four wheels through an 10-speed automatic transmission.
The stylish new lightweight body is underpinned by a new body-on-frame Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform that delivers greater rigidity, improved ride comfort and superb dynamic handling on and off-road and features an array of electronic assistance technologies to ensure it is the most capable, safest LandCruiser ever.
