New Toyota Land Cruiser 200 Series 2021 pricing and specs detailed: Ageing off-road icon now costs more to buy

Toyota Australia has increased the pricing of the LandCruiser 200 Series upper-large SUV.

All LandCruiser 200 Series variants are now $806 dearer, meaning the ageing off-road icon’s range now starts from $80,996 plus on-road costs and reaches $124,396 (see full pricing table below).

Speaking to CarsGuide, a Toyota Australia spokesperson confirmed no changes have been made to the Nissan Patrol rival’s standard specification, with its price rise instead prompted by “external market forces”, including exchange-rate pressures.

For reference, the LandCruiser 200 Series is available in four variants: entry-level GX, mid-range GXL and VX, and flagship Sahara.

All versions are motivated by a 200kW/650Nm 4.5-litre twin-turbo V8 diesel engine, which is mated to a six-speed torque-converter automatic transmission and a permanent four-wheel-drive system.

As reported, Toyota is busy preparing a ‘Final Edition’ of the LandCruiser 200 Series, but whether or not it gets sold in right-hand-drive markets like Australia remains to be seen.

Meanwhile, the new LandCruiser 300 Series has reportedly had its launch pushed back to June next year. Either way, it’s expected to feature downsized engines and a hybrid option.
