Toyota Land Cruiser 2010 replaces V8 engine

Toyota recently announced the 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser is going to get a new engine and transmission option, retiring the long-running 4.7-litre V8 to replace it with a Lexus-derived 4.6-litre V8. The upgrade is only for the Japanese-market model currently but may spread to GCC and other markets later.

The new Japan-spec 4.6-litre V8 dual VVT-i engine produces 318 hp at 5600 rpm and 460 Nm at 3400 rpm, mated to a new 6-speed automatic. The previous 4.7-litre made 288 hp and 445 Nm of torque, with a 5-speed auto. It is assumed that the 4WD system and other mechanicals remain the same.

It is unknown at this time whether the 2010 Land Cruiser for the UAE market will be receiving a similar engine change. Regardless of any changes, the big 4×4 will continue to be popular in Cruiser-crazy markets such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

What do you think?



  1. WTF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! we got 1 before 4 months and now they get a new one so soon …. DAMN japan …..

  2. Big Deal! The American spec Land Cruiser has a 5.7-liter DOHC 32-valve EFI V8 with dual independent VVT-I; 381 hp @ 5600 rpm; 401 lb.-ft. @ 3600 rpm and a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic overdrive with intelligence (ECT-i), sequential shift mode and uphill/downhill logic transmission. The exact same engine found in the Sequoia.

  3. Hey thats good news but i have also read somewhere that the 2010 Nissan Patrol/safari is going to go in production this December and will launch next year. so i guess nice competition is going to be there

  4. Hey Mash!

    Here in KSA i have seen a lot of V8 landcruisers 5.7 and V6 is i think 4.7… or may be i am wrong….. please correct me if i am wrong…

    But seqiuoa clearly mentions 5.7…..

    Whats the deal bro….

  5. Author

    The GCC-spec ones are listed in the guide. The 5.7 LCs may be imports from USA.

  6. Yes Mash!

    You are so right…

    People here love US cars and they are big fans of GMC, Chevy, Caddi and Ford (Especially crown victoria and expedition) ….These are the brands you’ll find on almost every street of KSA.

  7. thats really bad.. i hve 2008 vx-r… sad for me

  8. dont worry guys this one will also be stupidly overpriced. go buy something else 😆

  9. hey mash how r u doing ?????? mash have u got any idea how much will the body kit of the Toyota Land Cruiser cost ????????

  11. Does anyone know about the American Spec 5.7 V8 version’s desert capability? Is it just a bloated engine or it performs in the desert and gives proper desert performance?? On paper its as usual idiotic…in the US you get 5.7litre 380bhp engine while here we get the stupid 4.7litre 231Bhp engine which is just about the same or less in Bhp terms as a Prado. Where’s the logic? I hope someone can tell me about the 5.7 litre American spec version in the desert.

  12. i don know where you got your facts there buddy but, the new 4.7v8 is rated much higher than 231!! its got close to 270!! with slightly more torque than the previous 4.7l..I dont understand what you mean by desert performance?? but the 5.7ltr engine is very powerful, its the same engine in the tundra as well as in the sequoia..If your talkin about hot weather testing, then the sequoia is now in the GCC and there doesnt seem to be anything wrong with that engine so far..

  13. Hi is there is any new news about this subject? Thanks

  14. hi all, plz who nows when land cruiser will change from out side and inside ???

  15. Well the LC will not change from inside and outside for a long time since its still fairly new.. 😀

  16. landcruiser’s both v6 and v8 is a high performance substance for deserts…
    landcruisers extreme capability for off roading which is the best in the market is slightly better in the v8..
    however significant erformance differnce is found while drifting the landcruiser in the desert dunes…
    also the landcruiser v8 has awesome towing capacity..
    landcruiser is “the perfect 4wd suv”..

  17. I came quote close to buying the new VXR V8 last month but something inside told to wait for the 2010 specs. Thank God, now maybe I will get to buy the new engine which is 4.6 Lexus engine. 😉

  18. woow men this my dream car somebody help me please to get this car,heeeeer LAND CRUISER you are nore 😮

  19. if it was about 200,000 the full option I could look into it or at most 220K but 260K is abit too much consider also the insurance and stuff

  20. the 4.6 V8 would be te best choice for families who care about fuel.the current model (v8 4.7) is weak. 4.0 V6 can beat it sometimes. However the new engine is retuned down from the orignal power (370 Hp) 😀 {good for UNICHIP). It is the same engine used for LS 460 LEXUS. the summary the 4.6 V8 is better fuel mileage and power. However if u have tried the V8 5.7 there is no way you would buy a GCC spec. t 😯 he LX 570 has it but the car is alot heavier and still awsome power.

  21. i dont know what i said for you LAND CRUISER 2010 it’s SCORPION.

  22. when did toyota announced that they r changing the land cruiser engine.i asked one of the salesman of toyota and he said there no change in engine of land cruiser. if i m wrong or maybe the salesperson didnt have info, so plz do send me some proof.

  23. is there any changes in toyota land cruiser 2010

    Land cruiser V8 diesel
    Land cruiser V6

    Same car with 5 different engines ?!
    and i want to know why the 5.7 is not available in the Gcc?!

  37. Seems like Car middle east got to drive it…

  38. Author

    Hey man, don’t advertise those punks here. Haha!

  39. Why do you think I put it in the wrong news section… 😛 😛

  40. In terms of power and accelaration all previous and current “Gulf version” Land cruisers are actually unimpressive and even pathetic so the increase in horse power of the 2010 land cruiser is welcome news but not quite enough. The Sequoia (which is cheaper than even the 6 cylr Land Cruiser) has a 380+ of horse power 5.7 Ltr with 400 lb/ft (500+ NM) of torque. It is the exact same engine found in the LX570.

    I have a 2009 Sequoia which ,in the Gulf, comes only in Rearwheel drive but the straight line aceleration is thrilling. It kicks the ass of all the Tahoes and the Denalis and Escalades and even the 2009 Rang Rover Supercharged, but not the new 2010 RR Supercharged which now has 500 horse power.

  46. Your 2010 land cruiser is grossly overpriced. You will get a 5.7 liter v8 cruiser for about 56,000 dollars in the united states

  47. Its overpriced because it sells and the dealers will of of course take advantage of it! I dont think you will ever see as many in the U.S. as you will in a day over here.

  48. this is very special for me. I think it is useful to diver. I really want to dive it now.

  49. Is the 5.7 engine going to be available at Gulf Countries for land Cruiser?
    If yese, then when?

  69. They trying to get rid of the land cruisers quick by offering ‘discounts’, maybe 2011 is getting the 5.7 litre

  70. Then the safari models should at least come in 4.7ltr.

  73. Finally some competition to the New Nissan Patrol !!

  74. hi JOSE



  75. i just saw the 5.7L LC yesterday at the showroom and its heavily speced out. retails at AED 296k

  76. I have the 5.7 L LC in Dubai. Bought it from a guy who imported it from US. Goes like nothing else and performs great in the desert. It also have more options than the GCC model like, several electric power outlets, folding mirrors, memory seats (and heated seats), DVD display mounted in the roof, wirlesss headphones for those watching tv, better grade leather and probably more goodies that i dont know about. But to answer some of the threads about its capability – it has no problem whatsoever in the desert, I easily follow others with GCC specs while driving out there (and climb higher!). Dont forget, you need to think about tires, the preasssure etc also… I paid 170 K and it has only run 7500 K!!!! A bargain if they will go for 296 here…

  77. Forgot to mention it has AUX connection for your IPod.

  78. and tyre preassure indicators for all 5 wheels

  79. I have LC full option 2010, 12000 km. i,ll send u the pictures to ur email if u r interested.

  80. i wish the latest vxr has side n front cameras plus a 22 inch rims.they got 2 put a new wenon n led lamps in front. white kinda light is cooler than yellow just like in 2011 nissan patrol.also they hav 2 make some changes in lexus lx570 size n yellow lights!!!!!!!!!!!

  81. Can anyone help? I had a 2008 landcrusier 4.7 v8 petrol with vvt-i ,unfortantly i wrote this girl off. I am looking at a 2009 landcrusier 4.7 petrol but it does not have the vvt-i badge on the back. Do all the 200 series petrol v8 have vvt-i . ?. Thanks

  82. Would any one know if the upgraded 4.7L V8 engine on 2008 – 2011 Landcruiser GCC spec has a timing belt or chain ?
