There are no surprises in the cabin, where the 2024 Land Cruiser offers seating for five, an 8-inch infotainment system, cloth upholstery, heated front seats and steering wheel, a wireless charging pad, and an AC inverter on the base trim level. The mid-range gets electrically adjustable ventilated front seats, a 12.3-inch infotainment system, and better audio. The premium package boosts the comfort and looks with stuff such as leather upholstery, a head-up display, a moonroof, a digital rearview mirror, and a premium sound system made by JBL.
Based on the same platform as the 'real' Land Cruiser and the Tundra, Tacoma, and Sequoia, the 2024 Land Cruiser features off-road-oriented tech and gear, the usual safety gizmos, new suspension, electric power steering, a full-time four-wheel drive system, center-locking differential, and a two-speed transfer case. Powering the American model is a 2.4-liter four-pot hybrid with a 1.87 kWh battery pack, developing a combined 326 hp and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque. In Western Europe, it'll be offered with a 201 hp 2.8-liter turbodiesel.
You'll have to wait until next spring to get your hands on the 2024 Land Cruiser, as that's when Toyota will launch it stateside, with a starting price of around $55,000. This means that it will be around $30,000 more affordable than the old generation, which left our market after the 2021 model year. And in case you haven't figured it out yet, it will be offered as a five-door. But have you ever wondered what it would look like with two fewer doors?
As you can imagine, this question has been answered by the rendering crowd. In this case, we have sugardesign_1, who rearranged the pixels of the off-roader to make it shorter and delete the rear doors. Between us, this look definitely suits it, and we think it would take a swing at more rivals even better if it was offered in this body style, too. But would you have yours as a three- or a five-door?
