Does the 2021 Land Cruiser have a V8 engine option?

The Land Cruiser goes big under the hood right out of the gate. It has one engine option, and that option is a 5.7-liter V8. It generates its power through 32 valves with dual independent variable valve timing. All this engine tech gives you 381 horsepower and an impressive 401 pound-feet of torque.

The Land Cruiser is a four-wheel-drive machine standard, and it pumps all its engine power through a smooth and efficient 8-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission. For an off-road machine of this class and power, you still get some impressive efficiency with up to 13-city mpg and 17-highway mpg.
