The 2016 Land Cruiser VX.S trim gets an extended body kit with features like a lower bumper set, side sill extensions, and large alloy rims.

According to the uploader, this particular model is based on a new “VX.S” trim, which gets an extended body kit with features like a lower bumper set, side sill extensions, and large alloy rims. For instance, the Land Cruiser GX.R gets a chrome bumper guard with the nameplate embossed at the front, while the VX.S trim features an add-on bumper with chrome accent running across.

Power for this variant will most likely be sourced from a 5.7-liter Dual VVT-i V8 petrol engine delivering 362 hp and 540 Nm of torque through a 6-speed automatic transmission. Other engines offered in lower trims include a 4.6-liter V8 petrol, a 4.5-liter V8 diesel, and, reportedly, a 2.8-liter four-cylinder diesel engine from the new “GD” family, which is now being offered in the UK-spec Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.
