Toyota hasn't offered a diesel engine in the Land Cruiser in the U.S. market since at least the early nineties, when it was still sold as something more akin to a Jeep Wrangler than a Range Rover. Since that time, the Land Cruiser has gotten progressively larger and more powerful. Throughout that time Toyota has offered an in-line six cylinder diesel outside of North America. In October, Toyota launched a redesigned version of the Land Cruiser including a completely new 4.5L diesel V-8, the new engine is lighter, quieter and more efficient than the old six cylinder. Even in the 5,800 Land Cruiser, the new diesel achieves 23 mpg (US) on the EU combined cycle.
