Toyota to launch LandCruiser Diesel on June 09th
Toyota will officially launch its cult SUV LandCruiser Diesel in India on June 09th. Built on ladder frame, this hardcore SUV is powered by a 4.5-litre V8 diesel oozing out 282bhp of peak power and an incredible 662Nm of torque. Running on 285/60-R18 tyres this monster SUV could give a new face to premium SUV segment available in India. A six-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel drive and torque differential makes this SUV a king on off-road. Toyota currently sells gasoline Prado and will continue to sell along with the new landcruiser. For Toyota which is all set to unleash the affordable Fortuner SUV (costs around Rs20 lakhs, affordable!) the launch of landcruiser diesel could be a big brand building exercise.
