    I agree, the change is slow but there is change. The 3.5TT has been around since 2018 and that is probably why it is is launched first. The 3.3 is the real dark horse.

    Got this from UAE Toyota for the 3.5TT. It converts to R1.4M with 20% Toyota Tax. Might be R1.55M if you use 40% Prado Tax.

    Now I wonder about the dudes paying R1.8M for an old shape V8.Click image for larger version.

    Just after launch certain used car dealers will be selling 300's at a premium of at least R300k over retail, some customers will just not wait!!

    We pay 80% more than the UAE for a 4.0 Prado not 40% as previously mentioned. Then the Price could be pushed to R2.0M for the 3.5TT.

    so it’s fast in a pointless drag race. If I wanted to go drag racing on tar, this car wouldn’t even be on my radar.

    I want to know what it’s torque curve looks like. How will it do fully loaded in the desert. What is it like for towing heavy? Will I need to Rev the hell out of it to get me Trialer up the ramp or off the beach.

    why people are so concerned with how “fast” and suv is will always leave me dumbfounded. If it can cruise comfortably at highway speeds with a full load or a caravan in tow, it is fast enough. I am sure any model, no matter the motor will be able to do this.

    if I want to go fast 1.5-2 million buys a lot of other much faster, much more capable vehicles.

    True what you say, but don`t fully agree with you. Typically these kind of vehicles will spend 95% (minimum)of their lifetime on normal paved surfaces. How fast they accelerate/overtake is pretty relevant then. Let us be serious, no more than 10%(if that much) of owners buying them will end up doing serious dedicated overlanding with them. Personally, if I am going to spend this kind of money on one of these barges, I would like them to be powerful and fast when needed.

    Ai man! Boys will be boys, keep the heart young and the adrenalin channels clear

    IIRC the youtube vid on this engine was shared, it has a Very flat torque curve, thus it should be Sweeeeet!

    Torque figures mutch better than previous outgoing model petrol and diesel. It is somewhere on this tread! Also 10 speed gearbox to keep it in best torque range . It will tow better 200kg lighter as well as better torgue power and 10speed box.

    its just to give perspective for the Patrol is the new tow king for overlanders for Aussies due to the power it pushes vs price, the LC 300 will be more than able for the task, the price though....

    If you are doing 95% on road driving, might I suggest that the Land Cruiser is, in fact, not the best vehicle for your requirements?

    So middle East market, the LC300 still retains the 1GR 4.0v6 in base model. Interesting.

    i have that engine, pretty bullet proof, but with the size and weight in the LC300 it will be pretty lethargic with its 6 speed AT to boot.

    Default UAE brochure

    Finally some specs to drool about. the 4.0 has both front and rear lockers standard, the 3.5 doesn't. Claimed consumption for the two engines seems the same at 9.4kml and 9.3kml

    Drove the 200 with a 4.0 V6 (Company car) for many years, while having a Prado 4.0V6 as well (SWAMBO Mobiel). I am convinced the V6 performed significantly better in the 200. It reved about 200 rpm more for same speed and gear and I think that is what kept it in the power. It always felt in the right gear.
