Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Expected to launch in the Middle East in the coming weeks.

New spyshots from instagram user hamad1two3 reveal the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser in a range-topping trim. Until now, only spyshots of the mid-spec Toyota Land Cruiser GX.R have surfaced.

2016 Toyota Land Cruiser VX.S front spied
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.
