About The Toyota Land Cruiser

Toyota didn’t just design a new generation of the legendary Land Cruiser, they reinvented it. The Land Cruiser started off being built for hardcore off-roading, and while it retained that capability over the years, the emphasis was more on being a three-row on-road people carrier. But today’s Land Cruiser takes the nameplate back to its roots, joining the 4Runner in the Toyota stable of seriously capable off-road SUVs. The Land Cruiser is powered by a new sophisticated i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain designed for uncompromising off-road ability, thanks to 326 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. Full-time four-wheel drive comes standard too, and the Land Cruiser comes with an impressive towing capacity of 6,000 pounds. Best of all, Toyota is promising a significantly lower starting price compared to the previous generation.

What the Critics Say

Inside, the Land Cruiser offers seating for five across two rows and offers the requisite infotainment technology to keep modern buyers happy. Toyota even equips it with advanced driver-assistance features since, for most Land Cruiser owners, this truck will serve as both a weekend toy and a weekday commuter. When it's time to hit the trail, the Land Cruiser has the equipment to tackle the rough stuff, including a four-wheel drive system with low-range gearing and locking differentials.” — Car and Driver

Both on- and off-road, our first impressions revealed few weaknesses and dismissed the notion that a Land Cruiser needs a V8 to live up to its legacy. It's more capable, comfortable, refined, and features a greater bandwidth than ever before. The new Land Cruiser might just be Toyota's most polished product in years, and we can't help but recommend this go-anywhere, do-anything machine.” — Edmunds

Incredible Capability

While there have now been several generations of the Toyota Land Cruiser that were built mostly for people hauling, this one is built to tackle the toughest terrain you can throw at it. The Land Cruiser is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a hybrid system that produces a combined 326 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque, an impressive amount of power that will make tough offroading look easy. You get four-wheel drive standard, as well as other offroad goodies like a center locking differential with an electronically controlled two-speed transfer case, an automatic limited-slip differential, and an electronic locking rear differential. It has 8.7 inches of ground clearance and there are available rock rails and full-coverage steel skid plates. This new generation of the Land Cruiser ditches the third row of seats and has been made a bit smaller as well in order to improve offroad agility.

Iconic Design

With its renewed emphasis on offroading, the Toyota Land Cruiser’s styling has been updated to evoke the looks of the older generations that first earned the Land Cruiser its reputation for utility. The styling is boxier, more squared-off, and the available round LED headlights are an updated version of the originals. Inside, you’ll find actual buttons to control most functions, meaning that you can quickly make the adjustments you need, rather than hunting through menus on a touchscreen. Most of the buttons are also large enough to be easily operated while wearing gloves since Toyota knows that a lot of adventures don’t take place in ideal weather conditions. Like the exterior, the interior is designed to be functional, while drawing influence from previous generations. Those familiar with the 70-series Land Cruisers from the 1980s will find the dashboard layout familiar, and everyone will find it easy to use.

Advanced Technology

For all of its retro looks, the Toyota Land Cruiser is packed with the absolute cutting edge in technology. The hybrid drivetrain produces noticeably more torque than the old V8 engine, and it’s mated to a far more sophisticated 8-speed automatic transmission. Multi-Terrain Select lets you choose specific terrain types, like mud, dirt, and sand, in order to dial in the best possible performance from the traction control system. CRAWL Control will maintain a set speed over especially rough terrain, so that you can instead focus on steering, and offers a choice of five different speeds. There is an available 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, which doubles as a monitor for the Multi-Terrain Monitor, an underbody camera system that lets you keep a closer eye on upcoming obstacles. Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay come standard, as does a wireless charging pad for your phone. And for audiophiles, there is an available 14-speaker JBL premium sound system.
