About the Toyota Landcruiser 300 Series
“I came; I saw; I conquered”! These are the famous words of Julius Caesar, spoken after victory in war many centuries ago. They can be likened to the dominance the legendary Toyota Land Cruiser has had in Kenya and the entire African continent since it entered this market several decades ago. According to most Kenyans, the Land Cruiser remains at the top of the large luxury SUV hierarchy here in Kenya, even with the entry of more refined brands in recent years.
Now, for the first time since 2007, SUV lovers can experience the Land Cruiser’s DNA in a whole new form. You can have the new and fully redesigned Land Cruiser J300 in up to six fantastic trim levels, i.e., the GX, AX, VX, ZX, and GR Sport. This new Land Cruiser has evolved in styling, engine options, luxury, technology, and comfort. However, it still holds to the fundamental attributes that these SUVs have kept over the generations, i.e., outstanding reliability and durability and exemplary off-road prowess.
The J300 is built upon an all-new GA-F Platform that guarantees a more refined ride. It is approximately 200 kilos lighter than the J200 models and features more advanced engines, so expect it to do better in the performance and fuel economy departments.
Here are some things you need to know if you are thinking about buying a new Toyota Land Cruiser J300 for sale in Kenya.
What are the Exterior and Interior features of a Toyota Land Cruiser J300?
While it is true that the Toyota Land Cruiser J300’s new exterior looks sharper and more modern, it resembles the J200 models in many ways. For example, the J300 is shaped like the J200, and its dimensions and approach/departure angles are similar. The most significant differences are probably the J300’s slightly larger and restyled grille, and its restyled, standard LED headlights and taillights. Depending on the trim level, you may have it with 17-20-inch steel/alloy wheels. Its range-topping, off-road-themed GR Sport trim-level models are different from the rest in that they feature a sport-themed GR Sport mesh grille with exclusive badging and the Toyota logo in full letters. They also feature exclusive exterior accents, off-road-themed front, and rear bumper designs, and black wheel arch moldings.
On the inside, the Land Cruiser J300 offers a 5/7-passenger cabin that may offer fabric/suede-like leatherette/full leather seating surfaces. It may also feature multi-zone automatic climate control, an available 12.3″ color touchscreen infotainment system, power-adjustable front seats, heated and cooled front seats, and many other features.
What are the Safety Features of the Land Cruiser J300?
The J300 comes equipped with Toyota’s latest version of its Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) driver-assistive technologies. They include a pre-collision system with pedestrian and cyclist detection that will alert you when the SUV is likely to collide with a person, an object, or another vehicle. This system will even step in and apply brakes to prevent a collision. Other TSS technologies include:
- An active cruise control system.
- A lane departure alert system.
- An automatic high beam system.
- A road sign assist system.
Other noteworthy safety features include a 3D multi-terrain monitor, ten airbags, a blind spot monitor (BSM), a rear cross-traffic alert (RCTA) system, and a brake assist system.
What are the Off-road Features of the Land Cruiser J300?
This SUV inherits the tried-and-true full-time 4WD system of the J200, and in the GR Sport models, this system adds new electronic locking differentials on both axles for enhanced capability. The J300’s top trims also feature an electronic kinetic dynamic suspension system that considerably improves wheel articulation when driving the SUV on rough, rocky roads. Other J300 off-road features include crawl control, a multi-terrain select system with various off-road modes, an available rear torque-sensing Limited Slip Differential (LSD), a Downhill Assist Control (DAC) system, and a Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) system.
How Spacious is the Toyota Land Cruiser J300?
The Land Cruiser J300 offers tons of seating space as a full-size SUV. Its 1st and 2nd rows are exceptionally roomy, offering more than enough headroom, legroom, and shoulder room for tall adults. The optional third row is smaller but still usable for average-sized adults. This SUV’s cabin also offers several storage points where you and your passengers can keep your drinks, snacks, smalls bags, and electronic devices.
The 5-seater J300 models offer 1,131 litres of cargo space at the back. The 2nd-row seats can be folded down and pushed forward for even more cargo space. The 7-seater J300 models feature 3rd-row seats that fold down flat, leaving a flat load floor, much unlike the previous generation’s 3rd-row seats that fold up against the sides of the SUV.
Is the Land Cruiser J300 fuel efficient?
Compared to the previous generation, the answer is a resounding ‘yes.’ The Land Cruiser J300 is driven by two new engines that deliver more power with greater fuel efficiency. One is a 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo petrol engine with an output of 305 kW (415 hp) and 650 Nm of torque, and the other is a 3.3-liter V6 twin-turbo diesel engine that makes 227 kW (309 hp) and up to 700 Nm of torque. Both engines pair with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Expect the twin-turbo petrol engine to return up to 8 km to the liter, and the twin-turbo diesel to return up to 10 km to the liter.
Does the Land Cruiser J300 have good ground clearance?
This SUV boasts an impressive ground clearance of 9.05 inches, so you can confidently thrash it on rugged off-road trails without worrying about damaging its undercarriage. It will drive over the deepest potholes and make easy work of the muddiest rural all-weather roads.
Can you find spare parts for a Land Cruiser J300?
Going by the popularity that the Land Cruiser J200 has enjoyed, the Land Cruiser J300 will be snatched up quickly within the next year, so many Toyota auto parts shops are likely to start adding J300 parts to their stocks. Therefore, you may struggle to find its parts now because it is still new, but before long, you will be able to find them much more easily.
Is the Toyota Land Cruiser J300 a reliable car? Does it have a good resale value?
If the Toyota Land Cruiser J200 is anything to go by, the J300 will be incredibly reliable and durable. Expect it to give you even up to 25 years’ worth of service when well maintained. And yes, the J300 will deliver excellent resale value. Its iconic status guarantees a lasting demand for it.
How much does it cost?
Because of the high demand for the Land Cruiser here in Kenya and because this is an all-new model, expect it to retail at well over 20 million.
There is a reason why the Land Cruiser has remained at the top of the food chain for so long, where Kenyan SUVs are concerned. It may be pricey, but the truth is that it will outlast many other similar SUVs while offering lower maintenance costs. There’s also no denying its commanding presence. Therefore, if you are able to buy this SUV, do it!
