Toyota Land Cruiser Active Commercial gets extra standard kit

  • New range-topping trim level for highly capable commercial 4x4
  • Active spec includes increased standard equipment, auto as standard
  • Available in SWB and LWB, and on sale now, priced from £33k

Toyota has now confirmed the pricing and specification of a second Land Cruiser Commercial trim level. Added in response to demand for a better equipped model, the new range-topper is called the Land Cruiser Commercial Active.

Previously, you could only buy the Land Cruiser Commercial in a very basic Utility grade, but it turns out some potential customers are keen to have a little more luxury.

First sight of this new Active version came at the 2019 CV Show in April-May 2019, but it's taken until December 2019 for full details to be confirmed.

What’s different about the Land Cruiser Commercial Active?

The existing Utility model isn’t completely basic – you still get niceties such as keyless entry and start, for example, plus the ever-useful cruise control – but clearly there is room for improvement in any vehicle that doesn’t have a DAB digital radio.

As such, the Active grade not only comes with things like dual-zone climate control and 17-inch alloy wheels (in place of the Utility’s steel wheels) but also an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with nine speakers, a rear-view parking camera and rear parking sensors.

What's more, it comes as standard with a six-speed automatic gearbox (the Utility is a six-speed manual only), plus hill descent control and hill-start assist.

You will still have to pay extra for built-in sat-nav, though.

When does the Land Cruiser Active Commercial go on sale and how much does it cost?

It's taken a while to get going - we suspect due to limited production capacity - but you can now order an Active model.

However, it won't actually start to reach dealerships until March 2020.

Prices start at £32,969 for the short-wheelbase (SWB) model and £33,932 for the long-wheelbase (LWB) model. Those are on-the-road prices, but excluding VAT.

That's around £4,000 more than the Utility grade costs.
