Based on the LC200 Sahara, the ‘Horizon’ is purely a cosmetic and comfort package, with no change to the Cruiser’s 4.5-litre turbo-diesel V8 and six-speed automatic transmission. The four-wheel drive system and low range transfer case are unaltered, too.
Styling features defining the Horizon include a unique grille treatment with dark inserts, black headlight surrounds and smoked chrome surrounds for the foglights. There’s a small ‘Horizon’ badge added to the tailgate and the puddle lamps project the Horizon badge and LandCruiser logo.
Inside, the Horizon adds semi-aniline leather-accented seats with special stitching and ‘Land Cruiser’ embossed into the front seat backrests. As part of an all-black interior that includes the headliner, the unique stitching continues on the doorcards and there’s chrome accent trim throughout. A heated leather steering wheel completes the Horizon specification.
"This new special edition Horizon model offers LandCruiser customers stylish and more distinctive visual appeal in a vehicle that remains as capable and competent on and off the road, wherever they choose to travel," said Toyota Australia Vice President Sales and Marketing Sean Hanley.
Standard LC200 Sahara features that carry over to the Horizon include 18-inch alloys, side steps, LED lights, multi-terrain monitor, sat nav, four-zone climate control, moonroof, premium sound system, rear seat DVD player and front seats with power-adjustment, heating and ventilation.
Toyota Safety Sense tech includes pre-collision safety system with pedestrian detection, active cruise control, auto high beam, reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert.
Priced from $129,090 (excl. ORCs), the LC200 Sahara Horizon carries a $5,500 premium over the standard Sahara and is the most expensive LandCruiser to date.
Production of the LandCruiser 200 Sahara Horizon is limited to 400 units. See your Toyota dealer for more details.
