Toyota will provide customers with a new powertrain choice, in the popular Kluger, with the addition of a new 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the first quarter of 2023.

The new four-cylinder engine will introduce a highly efficient and more responsive powertrain for families in Australia. The 2.4-litre engine employs a range of sophisticated technologies, including a newly developed turbocharger, optimised fuel injection system and long stroke to deliver excellent response and high output.

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the new turbocharged engine will provide an engaging driving experience for customers.

"With superb torque and response, we expect the addition of this strong new engine will make the popular Kluger family SUV an even more enticing prospect for buyers," Mr Hanley said.

The new 2.4-litre engine will produce approximately 198kW of power and 420Nm of torque1, replacing the well-regarded 3.5-litre petrol V6 powertrain in the Kluger line-up with a significant increase in torque.

Customers will have the choice of front- and all-wheel drive, with power to be channelled through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The new powertrain will be available across the range in GX, GXL and Grande guise, and will be offered alongside the popular and efficient Hybrid AWD grades.

Along with the new powertrain, the Kluger family SUV range will gain a number of range-wide updates, offering customers increased safety and convenience.

All Kluger variants will be offered with Toyota Connected Services2, enabled through an in-built data communication module (DCM) that can offer valuable safety features including automatic collision notification3, SOS emergency call4 and stolen vehicle tracking5.

A 7.0-inch colour multi-information display replaces the 4.2-inch display on GX, while GXL and up moves from an 8.0-inch multimedia display to an expansive 12.3-inch touchscreen.

More details will be confirmed closer to the upgraded Kluger's arrival in the first quarter of 2023.
