Toyota ups the spec of its popular Land Cruiser Commercial

Following the success of its Land Cruiser Commercial, Toyota has introduced a model featuring a few more bells and whistles.

The Active features alloy wheels, sat-nav and the option of an automatic transmission. The original utility-grade truck has only one spec level, with steel wheels, a manual gearbox and a basic Bluetooth radio.

Like the base-spec Commercial, the Active comes in short or long wheelbase and has a flat rubber floor where the rear seats would normally be. There is also a bulkhead between the driver and passenger and the load, and colour-coded blanking glass to keep prying eyes out of the load area.

The engine is the same across the range – a 2.8-litre four-cylinder diesel that develops 175hp – as is the 3t towing capacity.

Prices for the Active have yet to be announced, but the standard short-wheelbase Utility Commercial starts at £28,519.
