Toyota Land Cruiser 2014 – With over 60 years of off-road heritage, the Toyota Land Cruiser has become an icon in the 4WD market. Its unrivalled off-road performance and durability have earned it a rock-solid reputation as one of the world’s toughest and most reliable 4x4s.
The Toyota Land Cruiser has attracted millions of customers globally since its launch, taking it to even the harshest environments in all seven continents – including Antarctica.
External size increases to the new Toyota Land Cruiser have been kept to a minimum, safeguarding its excellent on- and off-road agility. At 4,780 mm, the new 5-door model is just 20 mm longer than its predecessor, maintaining its exceptional manoeuvrability and a minimum turning circle of just 5.8 metres.
The exterior design of successive Land Cruiser generations has combined the stylish aesthetics of a vehicle entirely at home in any environment with the robust image of durability and power expected from a genuine four-wheel drive machine.
While it remains a tough, go-anywhere off-roader in the long tradition of its name, the Land Cruiser is also a first class on-road vehicle which sets high standards for interior quality, comfort, flexibility, convenience and state-of-the-art technology.
Off road, KDSS virtually disconnects both front and rear stabiliser bars, further enhancing the Toyota Land Cruiser’s outstanding wheel articulation to ensure ground contact for all tyres over even the most severe terrain. And both AVS and the electronically modulated rear air suspension systems feature bespoke, off-road settings to maximise the vehicle’s all-terrain abilities.
Both control of these diverse systems and monitoring of the vehicle’s off-road performance have been made easier, faster and more comprehensive by the installation of a new centre console control panel and the addition of a new multi-information screen.
Central to the new panel, a switchable dial offers control of both the Multi-terrain Select system and Crawl Control speed adjustment. The panel further incorporates 4WD, AVS, MTS and Crawl Control, and centre and rear differential locking switches, offering drivers complete control of all the Land Cruiser’s off-road systems via one intuitive, simple-to-operate panel. 5-door versions of the new Toyota Land Cruiser are available with a choice of two engines: a 4.0 litre V6 petrol engine or a 3.0 litre, four-cylinder turbodiesel. All 3-door versions are equipped with the 3.0 litre turbodiesel.
The petrol V6 is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, whilst the diesel unit may be equipped with either a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission.
The new Land Cruiser is equipped with one of the most comprehensive, technically advanced ranges of active and passive, on- and off-road safety features ever launched by Toyota. In addition to a sophisticated Pre-Crash Safety (PCS) system that can help reduce collision damage and injury, it features the full range of braking, traction control and stability systems on the market today: ABS, complete with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist, Traction Control and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) system.
Toyota Touch 2 with Go builds on the Toyota Touch 2 multimedia base unit, offering customers an enhanced, full map navigation system representing the best value for money on the market. The system was developed in Europe, with European customers in mind.
It includes all the most popular navigation functions, such as advanced traffic coverage, customisable speed limits, speed camera warnings, motorway signposting, automatic zoom and junction view at motorway intersections.
Using a compatible mobile phone, via Bluetooth, the system offers on-board connectivity to Google Places – the largest and most up-to-date search database in the world. Via Google Maps, destinations may be input remotely from home or office, and Points of Interest may be downloaded for entry as destinations. The upgraded Toyota Touch 2 with Go system further features a new map screen design, improved navigation data, better voice guidance, traffic visualisation, an SOS/emergency call assistance function and access to the on-line Toyota customer portal.
Further system access to online content and apps includes a Touch 2 with Go Apps function which offers several applications available for download, including fuel prices, weather and parking space information, and a new Twitter App.
Toyota Touch 2 with Go has been designed specifically to be both affordable and flexible. The system can be easily upgraded with the newest functions, updated maps and the latest Apps, as they become available.
