Toyota Indus Motor Company (IMC) debuted the new Land Cruiser in Pakistan last month at a monstrous price tag of Rs. 72.50 million. It is a full-size, completely built-up (CBU) luxury SUV that competes with Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon, and similar SUVs.
Like its completely knocked down (CKD) counterparts, Land Cruiser has also fallen prey to the depreciating local currency and rising shipping costs, which have led to a price hike of Rs. 7.5 million.
Effective immediately, the new price of the Land Cruiser is:
|Old Price (PKR)||72,499,000|
|Revised Price (PKR)||79,999,000|
|Booking Amount (PKR)||30,000,000|
|Delivery Time (Months)||6 t0 7|
Although Land Cruiser 300 looks the same as its predecessor, it has several changes under the skin. Toyota has retired the 5.7-liter V8 engine in favor of smaller, more fuel-efficient, more environment-friendly, and more powerful turbocharged V6 engines.
In Pakistan, Land Cruiser has only one variant. It features a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine that makes 409 horsepower (hp) and 650 Newton-meters (Nm) of torque, which it sends to all four wheels via a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
It is also loaded with modern features such as:
|13 Airbags||Parking Sensors|
|ABS Brakes||Adaptive Cruise Control|
|Immobilizer System||Lane Keeping Assist|
|Hill Start Assist||Automatic Headlights|
|Hill Descent Control||Powered Tailgate|
|Active Traction and Stability Control||Sunroof|
|Lane Departure Warning||Heated and Ventilated Front Seats|
|Forward Collision Warning||4-Zone Climate Control|
|Road Sign Assist||12.3″ LCD-Based Infotainment System and Fully Digital Instrument Cluster|
|Multi-Terrain Monitor||Keyless Entry and Go|
|Multi-View Camera||Steering-Mounted Multi-Media Control Switches|
For most people in Pakistan, Land Cruiser 300 is an unobtainable commodity due to its gargantuan price. However, for people with enough purchasing power, it is a great addition to their 5-to-8 car garage.
