On the feature front, the Land Cruiser facelift gains a heated steering wheel, tyre pressure monitoring system, multi-terrain monitor cameras, and LED illuminated entry system.
For the Indian market, the Land Cruiser is available with a 4.5-liter V8 diesel engine capable of 261 hp and 650 Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission and a permanent 4WD system.
