Yesterday Toyota launched additional information about the much anticipated Landcruiser 300 series, and we wanted you to be the first to know!

OUR LANDCRUISER FAMILY IS GROWING!

On top of the current range that we know & love, the new 300 series introduces 2 new flagship models, the GR Sport & the Sahara ZX – so let’s have a quick look at those first!

GR Sport:

The all-new Landcruiser 300 GR Sport is arriving soon to Sunshine Toyota on the Sunshine Coast!

Focusing on dynamic 4WD capability, the Landcruiser 300 GR Sport is built for rugged, dynamic off-road adventurers.

Toyota Australia Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the arrival of two new top-of-the-line LandCruiser variants would further broaden the customer appeal of the legendary 4WD.

"Our new GR Sport is the absolute expression of the LandCruiser DNA - the ultimate 4WD that is specially equipped for owners who truly love driving on rough trails and in off-road rallies," Mr Hanley said.

Developed as a base vehicle for the Dakar Rally, GR Sport delivers a deeper off-road and sporty character that reflects the contribution of the motorsport-inspired GR brand that has become a sales phenomenon in Australia (see GR Yaris, GR Supra).

Features on the GR Sport include:

  • Bold TOYOTA lettering across the front grille

The other latest addition is the Saraha ZX, which adds a little bit of luxury to the already popular Sahara model and takes 4WD prestige to a whole new level.

"The graceful styling of the Sahara ZX adds an even more prestigious and advanced high-quality image for customers who use their LandCruiser primarily for urban driving and holiday getaways with their families”

- Sean Hanley, Toyota Australia Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Franchise Operations
