The 300 Series Landcruiser should reach Australian shores by 2022, and with it comes a new generation of Landcruiser. The highly anticipated Toyota model’s predecessor, the 200 Series, was well received at launch and continues to be a popular car choice today, so it is unlikely that the 300 Series will be any different.
Although Toyota has not confirmed any specifications officially yet themselves, available information provides a fairly good idea of what Landcruiser fans can expect from the latest in this popular line of vehicles.
Just Autos are your local Toyota diesel tuning experts. We’ve worked on a wide range of Toyota UTEs, including the 79 Series, 100 Series and 200 Series Landcruiser models. Our team eagerly awaits the 300 Series, and we expect big things from Toyota’s new version of their fans’ flagship favourite.

Unlike the 200 Series, the 300 Series Landcruiser will not be available in the venerable 4.5-litre twin turbo diesel V8. Instead, the new Landcruiser will run on a 3.3-litre twin-turbo diesel V6, with higher power and torque figures compared to the V8 of its predecessor: the F33-FTV 3.3-litre turbo diesel V6 is said to provide 227kW and 687Nm – a healthy power increase over the 200 Series’ 200kW/650Nm.
Joining the diesel engine, a 3.5-litre twin-turbo petrol V6 could also be added to the line-up. Toyota intends to electrify their entire range of vehicles by 2025, so a hybrid option will also likely become available in Australia at a later point. And although the timing and release dates aren’t yet clear, many speculate that both the diesel and petrol variants will have battery assistance.
Like the 70, 100 and 200 Series before it, the 300 Series will likely be under-tuned straight from the factory – allowing for a lot of power upgrades to be implemented. This includes performance enhancement opportunities through ECU remapping, dyno tuning and performance part upgrades.
When it comes to power upgrades for Landcruisers, Just Autos are the experts. Apart from our performance package upgrades, we offer a range of other upgrades and replacements that can improve your vehicle’s performance – no matter the terrain.
We expect to be able to greatly enhance the performance of the 300 Series Landcruiser, based off our experience with the 200, 100 and 79 models. Aspiring owners of the 300 Series Landcruiser can expect power upgrades for the following:
In our experience, all the previous Landcruiser models we have worked on have seen phenomenal results after ECU remapping. Custom tuning your ECU can not only greatly enhance your driving experience, but also improve your vehicle’s performance and fuel economy.
Dyno tuning may also greatly enhance the power capabilities of the 300 Series Landcruiser. Dyno tuning uses a dynamometer, or dyno, which is used to measure the power, torque, and rotational speed of your engine. The dyno simulates different road conditions in a controlled environment which gives the operator the ability to monitor a range of different variables: from air/fuel ratios to inlet air temperatures.
Diesel engines are built to withstand higher levels of stress and make the ideal candidate for power upgrades at little expense. Carefully selected changes to later-model diesel engines can reap remarkable rewards. At Just Autos, we will have a power upgrade solution that will suit you and your vehicle.
As Australia’s premier common rail turbo diesel ECU remapping experts, vehicle owners across Queensland, Interstate and even Internationally bring their high-performance diesel vehicles exclusively to our workshop.
Our entire team, headed by Matt Smith, is committed to meeting those needs and providing the best service in the diesel performance tuning and the automotive mechanical industry. As a result, a high percentage of our local, interstate and international business is from repeat customers and referrals.
