A fresh report out of Australia claims Toyota is considering developing a high-performance GR version of its upcoming Land Cruiser 300.
While the replacement for the Land Cruiser 200 has seemingly been delayed, the new range may just end up featuring a full-fat “Gazoo Racing” flagship model when it's revealed in 2021.
“There’s no reason LC [Land Cruiser] or Hilux couldn’t have GR models and we’ve trademarked those [badges],” a Toyota Australia spokesperson told motoring.com.au.
“We are making a special effort on pure GR models,” the spokesperson said, adding Toyota was “not excluding GR sub-branding from any core model”.
The GR range already includes the A90-generation Supra and GR Yaris, with rumours suggesting both the Hilux and Fortuner – though both likely only in their respective next generations – are also in line to receive the GR treatment.
The Australian publication speculates the GR Land Cruiser would either feature a tweaked version of the upcoming 3,3-litre V6 turbodiesel or perhaps even the new twin-turbo 4,0-litre petrol V8 earmarked for the next-gen Lexus LX.
