Toyota develops new diesel engine for Land Cruiser

New 2.8-liter engine produces 176ps and 420Nm

 

Toyota’s Land Cruiser will gain a new engine option this summer, with the addition of a new 2.8-liter D-4D power unit, which replaces the current 3-liter engine.

With a focus on improved driveability with better torque delivery, plus lower fuel consumption and reduced CO₂ emissions, the new 2,755cc, 16-valve DOHC engine produces a maximum of 176ps.

Matched with the current 6-speed manual transmission, it develops peak torque of 420Nm between 1,400 and 2,400rpm. A new 6-speed automatic transmission (replacing the previous 5-speed) allows even more pulling power to be delivered, with an extra 30Nm available between 1,600 and 2,400rpm.

The new automatic benefits from control systems that help Land Cruiser achieve around a 9% improvement in fuel economy and CO₂ emissions. Provisional figures show combined cycle performance at 7.206l/100km (39.2mpg) and 194g/km of CO₂ for the five-door model.
