Improved steering at low speed on the Toyota Land Cruiser V8

Position L4 (short range 4X4) and if the car is traveling at less than 25 km / h, it is possible to apply the regulator slowly progressive Crawl Control either alone or jointly. The Crawl Controls helps to move up or down a slope to it, or to free a stuck vehicle, without having to touch the pedals. It now has no 5 speed setting.

This system adds steering assistance that allows the driver to make extremely tight turns. Operating below 10 km / h, this function reacts to stress on the steering when braking the rear wheel on the side where the car turns. The braking force of the wheel, combined with the thrust of the rear wheel opposite, change the angle of drift tires, and deform the suspension rubber mountings to reduce the turning radius.

The Land Cruiser V8 is also equipped with a selection of Multi-field (5 types of terrain), a Multi-field screen and display a steering angle of wheels. The new screen of 20 cm (8 inch) displays the field of vision around the vehicle and the ground position of front and rear tires. Guide lines relating to predict the direction of the tires before the journey and the parallel lines materialize width and length of the vehicle. A display of the steering angle of the wheels is also projected on the screen. In increments moving in 7, they provide information on the driver continuously change the angle of the wheels, from 0 to 45 °. This display also facilitates parking maneuver.

The , now4.5-liter turbo diesel V8 complies with Euro 5 standards, develops 200 kW (272 hp) at 3600 rev / min and a couple of heavyweight 650 Nm between 1600 and 2800 r / min. It is mated to a 6-speed automatic. It has piezo injectors operating at a maximum pressure of 2000 bar. Noise and vibration are attenuated by the adoption of a control valve of the injection pressure, an injector sleeve to cushion the noise of the injection, and an insulator placed between injectors and cylinder head covers.
