Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series 2024: Australian pricing, specifications and what you should know


The updated Land Cruiser 70 Series for 2024 is better equipped and more modern than ever before

Toyota has officially released the full list of pricing and specifications for its updated 70 Series Land Cruiser range, which now includes a 2.8L turbo-diesel four-cylinder option.

Kicking off at $75,600, the price of entry has risen by $6600 over the pre-updated version but rising prices in recent years appear to have done little to dampen demand, with the 70 Series logging its five best sales years ever in 2018 and between 2020 to 2023. 

The aforementioned price relates to the entry level 76 series Workmate wagon, but prices are as steep as $87,600 for the V8-powered 79 Series double cab chassis GXL.

The entire Land Cruiser 70 Series range for 2024 can now be had with an available 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine borrowed from the Hilux which produces 150kW/500Nm

For the die-hard Land Cruiser fans, a 4.5-litre turbo-diesel V8 engine remains, which produces very similar power but less torque than the four-cylinder, with 151kW/430Nm

A six-speed automatic transmission option is also available for the first time in a 70 Series, but only on the four-cylinder variants. A five-speed manual remains the only choice for the V8, with all models fitted with a part-time four-wheel-drive system.

The 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series is now on sale in Australia. 

What’s new to the 70 Series in 2024?

Toyota has added several features to the 70 Series Land Cruiser range for 2024, including LED headlights, hill descent control on automatic versions and new safety technologies including auto high beam, speed sign recognition and lane departure alert. 

Inside the cabin, a new 6.7-inch touchscreen features for the first time that runs wired versions of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The biggest new addition, however, is to the model’s powertrain – a 2.8-litre four-cylinder taken from the Hilux and Prado is now available across the range. 

Toyota Australia says that the new-to-Land-Cruiser four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine has “around 10 percent” reduced fuel consumption compared to the turbo-diesel V8. Toyota quotes a figure of 9.6L/100km for the new four-cylinder 70 Series. 

Towing, payloads and extra information you should know

The 70 Series for 2024 is capable of towing up to 3500kg braked right across the range. Payload capacity ranges up to 1325kg for cab chassis utes and 1210kg for wagons. There is a slight benefit to payload for the four-cylinder diesel over the existing V8. 

Fuel tank capacity is 130 litres for single and double cab chassis and for the wagon, too, however the Troop Carrier has a massive 180 litre total fuel capacity.

In terms of Australian development, Toyota engineers were flown here to find out how locals used their 70 Series. Australia was pivotal in the development of the four-cylinder Land Cruiser 70 Series, in fact it was the only country outside of Japan were development of this latest update was carried out

Toyota brought four prototypes to Australia which were subjected to heavy testing in a wide range of conditions. Toyota Australia has said that “approximately 15 months of testing and validation was performed in Australia” for the 2024 Land Cruiser 70 Series. 

Feedback from local owners of 70 Series told Toyota that they wanted a new version to retain its original traits, such as its 3500kg towing capacity, off-road ability, rigid front axle and wide compatibility with the accessory aftermarket. 

What is included in each grade of the 2024 70 Series Land Cruiser?

As before, there are three trim levels across the new 70 Series range: Workmate, GX and GXL. It’s worth noting that the 2.8-litre engine is the only available powertrain option for the 76 Series wagon Workmate.
