The 2017 LandCruiser Altitude special edition offers 200 Series buyers an additional value option and a little exclusiveness, being limited to just 600 vehicles.
The LandCruiser Altitude is based on the LandCruiser GXL turbo-diesel model, and adds luxury, comfort, convenience and safety features that are usually found on premium-grade LandCruiser 200 Series variants.
Toyota Australia’s executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb said the LandCruiser 200 Series Altitude was ideally placed in the middle of the turbo-diesel variants of the company’s peak off-road vehicle.
“Comprehensive upgrades make the Altitude the ideal choice for those who aspire to a vehicle that delivers an even more luxurious and desirable package,” Mr Cramb said.
Interior upgrades start with leather-accented upholstery, power adjustments for the front seats and a refrigerated cool box, along with chrome-tipped front air vents and brushed alloy-look ornamentation.
Drivers benefit from the addition of high-quality LED Optitron meters and a 4.2-inch multi-information display accessible through a new steering-wheel switch.
Externally, the Altitude special edition is distinguished by LED foglamps, rain-sensing wipers and Altitude badging.
The LandCruiser Altitude is powered by Toyota’s 200kW, 650Nm 4.5-litre twin-turbo V8 diesel engine, driven through an electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission.
Every LandCruiser 200 wagon is equipped with seven airbags, reversing camera, vehicle stability and active traction control, multi-terrain anti-skid brakes, hill-start assist control, trailer sway control, an emergency brake signal and tilt/telescopic adjustments for the steering column.
Other standard features from the GXL grade include 17-inch alloy wheels, aluminium side steps, keyless “smart” entry and ignition, dual-zone climate-control air-conditioning, roof rails, a 6.1-inch touchscreen display for operating satellite navigation and a six-speaker audio system that includes DAB+ radio.
The LandCruiser Altitude is priced at $93,460 plus on-road costs, which is a premium of $4,630 over the standard GXL turbo-diesel.
Five exterior colours are available – including black which is a no-cost option and premium white, silver, graphite and blue shades for an additional $550.
The LandCruiser 200 Series Altitude special-edition model is covered by Toyota Service Advantage, capped at $280 for each of up to six standard scheduled services.
