    Well, the 3l v6 diesels are not bad. Drove a Jeep GC for a couple of weeks. VM Motori engine. 8.6l/100km. 190kw. Very impressed.

    The question still begs to be asked. Can I tow 3500kg with that thing, in heavy terrain?

    Toyota took a leaf out of the Ford Ranger book and added a 10 speed gearbox to compensate for the reduction in engine capacity. So it should be able to tow I reckon. SSF.

    But with the old Lexus enjine options, 4.5 diesel and 5.7 petrol. Around R1.9 bar.

    Not sure if this info is correct. Maybe someone can verify?

    If however correct on pricing, don't want to guess where the updated Lexus LX price will be going
    If the pricing is to high I guess the Nissan Y 62 might come into play.

    I know for many Cruiser fans this is heresy but let's see.

    If there is a 3 or 4 hundred premium on the Toyota will the Nissan do the trick.

    Its not an old school Patrol or 100 series Cruiser but it is a close modern version.

    AX and ZX are usually Japan Domestic Market (JDM) branding. Their export equivalents are usually VX and VXR.

    The GX/GXR is normally bare bones basic export spec and not usually offered in JDM.

    The Y62 in my opinion was already outgunned by the 200 on very many fronts (looks included ), apart from 0-60mph time (wait, the Arabs, Russians and Americans had the 5.7 V8 in their 200 which already matched the Y62 here anyway).

    In no way can you even pitch y62 against the upcoming 300.

    The specs that I saw was distributed officially, 2 or 3 pages. I just took a pic of the engine specs. Yes models are named differently then it use to be.

    According to this article the V6 should cope. The V8 maximum torque is spread across only 1000 rpm, I guess the V6 should be able to match that.

    Just like many mordenized 4x4s, the 300 will target mostly urban folks driving to office, malls, schools, etc. Those that want to tow heavy are, I would imagine like 2% of the target market. I think if the 3.3 turbo6 meets 98% of target clients needs or even perceptions, it's a winner.

    Your vague point is based on what? Previous Cruiser models? Having seen the torque curve?
    It's not like they put a 2l engine in there.

    In what markets did the 200 sell the most? What were the customers in those markets using it mainly for?

    Same as the 80 and 100 series Landcruiser. A luxury barge. But nevertheless, so far Toyota made sure the Landcruiser is still very capable off road and can tow heavy loads.

    Why should that change with the 300 series?

    By the way, I'm in no doubt that 300 will better 200 in all round capability. However, let it not suprise you if Toyota's priorities on 300 are not to please the hardcore off road enthusiast, but rather the luxury buyer who practically never tows nor goes off-road. The path that the new defender has taken, but has worked for JLR.

    That not withstanding, I trust that Toyota values the developing world and UN clients that buy the GX in drones for their daily duty, and will make the 300 even better for them.

    This Info is not correct! The V8 will no longer be available on the 300 only V6 engines. The Lexus will apparently get a new V8 Petrol engine as an option!

    OK, am one of those that still hope the bare bones GX for UN fleet doing duty in the remotest parts of the world may still carry on with the 4.5 d4d, but let's wait and see. I think a v6 twinturbo may be too advanced for this use case.
