Toyota Land Cruiser Utility Commercial (2018–)
First customer deliveries of Land Cruiser Utility Commercial models, not previously available in the UK.
Two versions: short wheelbase, three-door at £27,546 and long-wheelbase five-door at £28,509, both based on current 2018 passenger Land Cruiser 4x4 SUVs.
With no rear seats the load space extends to 1,574 litres in the SWB and 2,216 litres in the LWB. Maximum payload weights are up to 593 and up to 756kg. Both can tow tow up to three tonnes.
The load space is fitted with an edge-to-edge, non-slip flat floor tray. A full-height metal bulkhead is provided, with a mesh top section and a hatch for easy access. The rear tailgate is side-hinged and opens wide for easy loading and on the LWB the rear doors open giving access from the sides. Rear windows are blanked out with a film that matches the Land Cruiser’s body colour.
Both are on 17-inch steel wheels with 225/70 R17 tyres, but in the cabin comfort and safety features include cloth upholstery, adjustable head restraints, Aux-in and USB connections. Front, side and driver’s knee airbags. As a proper 4x4 they are equipped with Multi-terrain ABS, Active Traction Control, Vehicle Stability Control, and on the LWB Trailer Sway Control. A tyre pressure warning system, dusk-sensing headlights, smart entry, front fog lights and roof rails are also included.
On the Road prices are £27,546 for the SWB model and £28,509 for the LWB (plus 20% VAT).
