Ramadan is the growing season of giving. In this time around, many dreams come true. Such as the dream of owning a 4WD that is very Unchallenged at the pinnacle of its performance – the Toyota Land Cruiser…!
Indeed, the Land Cruiser is in a class of its own. Enjoying an even of customer loyalty unmatched by any other SUV, the Land Cruiser is a complex mixture of off-road prowess, on-road comfort and unparalleled refinement. In addition, it offers seating for eight passengers.
“It’s empowering to learn that vehicle are designed for nearly any terrain on the globe, and the Land Cruiser gets the added appeal of being quiet, comfortable and surprisingly swift on the highway. Throw in a good dose of its tastefully restrained styling and it’s easy to understand why the present day Land Cruiser is really as impressive in its own way as those legendary Land Cruisers of yore,” observes a prominent website.
The Land Cruiser model proudly carries forward the vehicle’s legacy of phenomenal all-terrain performance and reliability. Indeed, it is one of the very most technically advanced four-wheel drive vehicles ever produced and has some advanced dynamic and handling features. These have been further extended with the world-first Turn Assist, which works in conjunction with the Crawl Control function, Multi-Terrain Monitor.
The Crawl Control System helps maintain a minimal uniform vehicle speed by automatically controlling the engine output and brake hydraulic pressure for reducing driver burden when in off-road conditions.
Helping drivers confirm their surroundings when driving off-road are features such as a Multi-Terrain Monitor used in conjunction with Multi-Terrain Select (MTS). The range of Advanced Active-Driving Control Features extends to the Active Traction Control (ATRC) system, which ensures excellent Vehicle Handling functionality. Increasing the versatility of the Land Cruiser is the Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) system, which prevents vehicle rollback when stopping and then starting again on a steep incline or slippery surface.
In addition, the vehicle features Active Height Control and Adaptive Variable Suspension (AHC & AVS), a completely adjustable system that provides spring rate control to provide exceptional performance off-road. In addition, it regulates pitch and body roll on-road to keep ride comfort and refinement.
The heart of the 2017 Land Cruiser’s capability is its 5.7-litre with dual VVT-i V8 engine, which produces 362 Horsepower and 54 Kg-m of Torque. The Land Cruiser is the first large SUV segment model with genuine off-road capabilities to give a smooth and quiet 8-speed Automatic Transmission. This indomitable 4WD is popularly available in the 4.0 and 4.6 litre variants as well.
Advanced safety technologies which may have gone into the making of the Land Cruiser have led to innovative features that include a Pre-crash Safety System that detects other vehicles or obstructions to warn the driver, perform evasive manoeuvres and automatically activate brakes when its sensors find a high probability of a collision. Radar Cruise Control helps maintain a suitable vehicle-to-vehicle distance while following preceding vehicle. A Lane Change Assist system with Blind Spot Monitor warns the driver if there is a vehicle on either side while changing the lane while the Automatic High Beam system detects oncoming headlamps and/or tail lamps of preceding vehicles and automatically switches to low beam to reduce glare.
The 2017 Land Cruiser is also available with Ten Airbags, Active Headrests and a choice of exterior colours. Elevating In-vehicle Entertainment to a totally new level are the 11.6-inch Dual Display Screens with Display Angle Adjustable Mechanism offering the best in multimedia entertainment for rear seat passengers.
