Toyota Australia has lifted the price of its Land Cruiser 300 Series by a significant $3500 across its range
Effective from 1 January 2023, the Land Cruiser 300 Series now starts at $92,681 before on-road costs for the entry-level GX variant.
Pricing now tops out at $141,481 before on-road costs for the flagship Sahara ZX variant.
Toyota Australia sold the most cars of any brand in Australia during 2022, shifting 231,050 cars throughout the year.
The Toyota Hilux was the brand’s biggest seller, with 64,391 deliveries of the ute occurring during 2022.
Currently, the wait time for a Land Cruiser 300 Series in Australia is roughly 18 to 24 months, however Toyota Australia recommends contacting local dealerships to find out a more accurate time of arrival for your vehicle.
Toyota states on its main website that several factors are impacting deliveries of its new cars, including parts shortages, high demand and more expensive raw materials.
Toyota Australia says it is experiencing extended wait times on many of its new vehicles, not just the Land Cruiser 300 Series.
The Toyota RAV4 midsize SUV, one of Australia’s most popular cars and the best-selling SUV in Australia, has wait times of up to 12 months depending on variant.
The Toyota Camry hybrid, meanwhile, is also seeing long wait times of up to 24 months depending on which variant is specified.
Toyota Australia’s vice president of sales, marketing and franchise, Sean Hanley, said in early January that Toyota was confident it could deliver more than 200,000 vehicles in 2023.
“We are extremely grateful – and humbled – to report that our order bank remains very strong due to the trust placed in our brand and our vehicle lineup by so many Australian companies and individuals,” Mr Hanley said.
“While it remains difficult to make predictions in this evolving supply situation, we can assure you that we will be working harder than ever.”
All prices listed are before on-road costs.
