The rumors about a few months ago are happening right now. The photos of the forthcoming 2022 Toyota Crown Kluger leaked yesterday, and this SUV is featuring handsome styling. However, this vehicle hasn’t been officially announced by Toyota in China so far, but it could debut later this month at Auto Shanghai.
If you didn’t know, the Toyota Crown is one of the oldest nameplates in the automotive industry. This model was introduced back in 1955, and it is currently in its fifteenth generation. Images of the upcoming Toyota Crown Kluger have surfaced on the internet, and we just got some information regarding its specs. Here’s what we know so far about the forthcoming Crown Toyota Kluger.
2022 Toyota Crown Kluger Design
The new 2022 Toyota Crown Kluger looks almost identical to the Highlander. Interestingly, Toyota Highlander is known as ‘Kluger’ in specific markets, like Australia. Unlike the Highlander SUV, the Crown in the past was available in multiple body styles. This model was available as a pickup truck, a coupe, and a wagon. While the exterior styling is similar, the new Crown SUV differentiates from the Highlander in many things.
First of all, the front fascia looks much better with a more attractive black painted grille and shaped headlights. Also, the badge on the nose helps us to identify Crown Kluger from a distance.
Inside, the forthcoming 2022 Toyota Crown Kluger will be exactly like the Highlander. It offers a very spacious cabin and comfortable seats, even the cloth-covered ones in the entry-level model. However, upper trims like on the Highlander bring the stitched leather and many amenities.
Cargo space is impressive, and the new SUV offers usable 16 cubic feet behind the rear seat. Folding the second and third row, buyers will get over 84 cubic feet. The base model should including an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, tri-zone climate control, 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto/Amazon Alexa compatibility, satellite radio, four USB ports, and keyless entry/ignition.
2022 Toyota Crown Kluger Powertrain Specs
Under the hood, the latest 2022 Toyota Crown Kluger will most likely deploy the new hybrid system. According to many reports, this model will use a proven 2.5-litre petrol-electric unit that will deliver an output of 189 horsepower.
However, there might be other engine options on offer, which would be revealed with this model’s introduction. So far, we know that it will use six-speed automatic transmission, but expect more options as well on the final product.
Release Date, Price
After so many rumors, the new 2022 Toyota Crown Kluger is coming. The latest edition features attractive styling and reminds us of its sibling Toyota Highlander. From the information that’s circulating over the web, the forthcoming SUV is might debut during the Shanghai Auto Show, which will happen later this month.
However, the Toyota Crown Kluger is a premium SUV available only on the Chinese market. As per speculations, this model will cost around $30,000, which is $4000 lower than the Highlander model.
