2017 Toyota LandCruiser Altitude special edition announced

Brett Davis

Following the announcement of the Toyota Prado Altitude special edition last week, Toyota Australia is now confirming an Altitude version of the Prado’s big brother, the LandCruiser 200 Series.

The LandCruiser Altitude is based on the GXL turbo-diesel, featuring a 4.5-litre twin-turbo V8 engine producing 200kW and 650Nm. This is matched to a six-speed automatic with full-time four-wheel drive.

Bespoke to the Altitude, aside from some exterior badges, is a leather-accented upholstery for the passengers, power front seats, and a cooler box for the centre console otherwise found in the top Sahara. There’s also a 4.2-inch LED display within the instrument cluster.

For the exterior there’s some LED headlights, along with five paint colour options including black, premium white, silver, graphite, and blue shades. Toyota Australia’s executive director of sales and marketing, Tony Cramb, spoke about the special edition, saying:

“Comprehensive upgrades make the Altitude the ideal choice for those who aspire to a vehicle that delivers an even more luxurious and desirable package.”

Just 600 examples are up for grabs, all equipped with Toyota’s capped-price servicing program at $280 for the first six scheduled services. Prices start at $93,460 (excluding on-road costs), which is up $4630 on the regular yet less-equipped GXL diesel.
