2025 Toyota Land Cruiser 250
The 2025 Toyota Land Cruiser 250 represents a new chapter in the history of a brand known for tough dependability and off-road competence. This new version of the storied SUV is poised to breathe new life into the Land Cruiser brand while keeping the vehicle’s tried-and-true toughness and performance.
The new Land Cruiser will be unveiled at 9:20 PM ET on August 1, 2023, as Toyota has stated. Fans are getting antsy as they anticipate introducing the 2024 model, which will be released in the United States in 2025.
Instead of the V8 power of its forebears, the 2025 Land Cruiser 250 is projected to have a four-cylinder engine. The Prado, as it is known in some regions, is rumoured to be doing the amazing 14-year climb from the 150 series to the 250 series.
The new Land Cruiser will be constructed using Toyota’s TNGA-F platform, which debuted in 2015. The Lexus LX, GX, Tundra, Tacoma, and Sequoia all share this body-on-frame construction with other Toyota vehicles. The 4Runner will use the same chassis, falling in line underneath the Prado.
Codenamed L4T, the 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine will likely power the 2025 Land Cruiser 250. The current Highlander is powered by this drivetrain, which produces 265 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. There have been rumblings that a hybrid version of Tacoma’s 2.4-litre engine may be introduced to the American market.
Launching in late summer or early fall of 2023, the 2025 Land Cruiser 250 production is anticipated to begin the following year. Early in 2024, the European market will get the 250s, but the American market will get it the following year.
Prices for the base Landcruiser LC300 GX (4X4) SUV in the 2023 lineup start at $89,181. To make the Land Cruiser experience more accessible to a wider audience, the 2025 model will cost between $55,000 and $65,000.
The new four-cylinder engines may or may not improve the Land Cruiser’s current fuel economy of 8.9L/100km.
The 2025 Toyota Land Cruiser 250 will carry on the tradition of its ancestors while incorporating cutting-edge features and aesthetics. The anticipation for what may be a new era in the history of this legendary SUV is only growing closer to the time of its formal unveiling.
