Toyota are set to launch a commercial vehicle version of the highly impressive Toyota Land Cruiser 4x4, for the first time ever in the UK. The new van will debut at the upcoming 2018 CV Show next month.
Toyota have revealed that the Land Cruiser Commercial will join the Toyota Hilux and Toyota Proace in the Toyota vans range following its reveal at next month’s CV Show. The new Land Cruiser is expected to be available in both three and five door specifications and will follow the lead of the Mitsubishi Outlander and Land Rover Discovery in releasing commercial vehicle versions of their popular SUV cars.
Staying consistent with the Land Cruiser SUV, the new van will be driven by a 2.8-litre Euro 6 compliant D4-D turbo-diesel engine delivering 175ps and an impressive 420Nm of torque when linked to the standard six-speed manual transmission. This is higher than the Toyota Hilux pick-up which is powered by a 2.4-litre engine, delivering 400Nm of torque from a 150ps output. The additional power will make the new Land Cruiser Commercial feel faster on the road, whereas the four-wheel drive system synonymous with the SUV will mean that the Commercial will be more than adept off-road.
Exact information on the Toyota Land Cruiser Commercial is yet to be released, however we do know that the new van will offer greater covered storage than any pick-up currently on the market and will appear as less of a working vehicle when parked outside your home, potentially making it less likely to be broken into be thieves looking to steal tools. Specification details of the Land Cruiser Commercial are also yet to be released and hence we do not have any information on load volume or dimensions as of yet. Standard equipment is expected to be similar to the entry-level Toyota Land Cruiser Utility, without the rear seating.
The Commercial will be launched at next month’s CV show alongside a special limited edition version of the Toyota Hilux which will be limited to 150 models in the UK and also a brand-new top the range model of the Toyota Hilux, both celebrating 50 years of the iconic pick-up from Toyota.
