Toyota LandCruiser reaches new Horizon
Special-edition, top-spec Horizon variant bolsters Toyota LandCruiser SUV range
11 Feb 2020
TOYOTA Motor Company Australia (TMCA) has expanded its LandCruiser 200 Series upper-large SUV range with the addition of the special-edition Horizon grade, which enters showrooms from $129,090 plus on-roads.
Priced $5500 above the top-spec Sahara variant, the Horizon has arrived in Australia to commemorate the 60th anniversary of TMCA’s establishment, and will be limited to just 400 units.
From the outside, the Horizon is differentiated from the Sahara by a unique grille with dark finish, black headlight and smoked chrome front foglight surrounds, Horizon badging and the LandCruiser logo displayed in the front and rear puddle lamps.
TMCA vice president sales and marketing Sean Hanley said the Horizon offered greater choice and a unique touch for LandCruiser owners.
“This new special edition Horizon model offers LandCruiser customers stylish and more distinctive visual appeal in a vehicle that remains as capable and competent on and off the road, wherever they choose to travel,” he said.
The Horizon builds on the specification of the existing Sahara, which includes LED lights, side steps, 18-inch alloys, moonroof, power-adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, four-zone climate control, off-road surround-view monitor, premium audio system, a rear-seat DVD player, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation.
Standard safety kit includes the Toyota Safety Suite featuring autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beam, reversing camera and front and rear parking sensors.
No changes have been made to the LandCruiser’s powerplant, a 4.5-litre twin-turbo diesel V8 good for 200kW at 3600rpm and 650Nm from 1600-2600rpm, driving all four wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
Off-road ability is aided by a low-range transfer case, centre locking differential and Crawl Control traction control system.
Toyota no longer offers its 227kW/439Nm 4.6-litre petrol V8 on the LandCruiser, which was dropped in November due to slow sales.
In 2019 Toyota sold 13,802 examples of the LandCruiser wagon (including the 76 and 78 Series), a narrow 0.9 per cent improvement over 2018.
In January, 751 LandCruiser wagons were sold, down 11.2 per cent on the 846 managed over the same period in 2019.
