Toyota will unveil 2 cars at the opposite ends of the size spectrum at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September. The new Land Cruiser will make its world premiere together with a special C-HR concept.
Regrettably, Toyota is barely saying anything on what to expect from the brand-new big SUV. But we can say it will maintain its body-on-frame construction that differs it from the sea of crossovers on the marketplace. “The new Land Cruiser will take you any place you wish to go. And bring you back,” Toyota stated.
The current-generation Land Cruiser debuted for the 2008 model year in the U.S. As we kept in mind in our most recent evaluation, the model has aged with dignity and continues to impress with its smooth powertrain, controlled ride, and extraordinary off-road ability. The SUV includes a 5.7-liter V-8 engine producing 381 hp, enough to go from 0-60 miles per hour in 6.8 seconds, according to Motor Trend tests.
Toyota will likewise unveil a C-HR design concept automobile in Frankfurt. Looking at this teaser image, a future C-HR model could feature a more aggressive design than the standard version, and potentially boosted performance. “Its intention is to highlight C-HR’s psychological and powerful appearance, while hinting at future expansion of Toyota’s hybrid powertrain line up within its core models,” Toyota states. Toyota currently has a hybrid C-HR in international markets, so it will be interesting to learn exactly what the company has with this design, called the C-HR Hy-Power idea.
The new Land Cruiser and C-HR concept will drop September 12, before the Frankfurt Motor Show.
