FOLLOWING THE RECENT updates to the workhorse LandCruiser 70 Series, Toyota Australia has announced new standard features for its flagship LandCruiser 200 Series.
The main 93 litre fuel tank of the LandCruiser 200 Series is now joined by a 45 litre sub-tank as standard (previously not offered with VX and Sahara), boosting the driving range of diesel models to a possible 1340km.
David Buttner, Executive Director for Sales and Marketing at Toyota Australia, said the latest changes were in response to customer demand.
"The only two grades that previously did not offer the sub-tank as standard fitment were the highly specified VX and Sahara twin-turbo diesel," Mr Buttner said.
"We are now offering customers greater flexibility. Buyers of those two grades can specify the sub-tank and have seven seats; alternatively, there is still an eight-seat option."
As a nod to the sheer size of the 200 Series, rear-view cameras are now standard across the range.
Toyota's CRAWL system, already a standard feature on 4.7 litre petrol models, is now standard across the range.
Designed to assist drivers navigate tricky terrain, CRAWL is a 'feet-off' control system that operates in low-range and replaces Downhill Assist Control.
Steering-mounted audio controls are also now standard across the 200 Series range, as are USB, aux inputs and a 12V rear power -socket.
Sahara and VX models now feature a moonroof as standard, along with five-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels (previously 17-inch) and dark grey (instead of green) tinted windows.
Petrol models and the seven-seat Sahara diesel now have a DVD rear-seat entertainment system with three wireless headphones.
A new, upgraded navigation touch screen screen has also been added to the Sahara's feature list.
Both petrol and diesel versions of the entry-level 200 Series GXL gain a new driver's seat with power lumbar and mechanical height adjustment.
Pricing for the upgraded range has increased by just under one percent for GXL and VX grades, and around two percent for the Sahara.
