CR Model Summary
This luxury SUV is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser, itself quite plush and upscale. The LX uses the strong 5.7-liter V8 from the Tundra pickup. It has a comfortable ride and a quiet, nicely appointed cabin. Our tested Land Cruiser got only 14 mpg overall but was very impressive off-road. Like the Toyota, the LX has an off-road crawl mode that manages throttle and braking over tough terrain. The height-adjustable suspension further enables the LX to traverse off-road. Unfortunately, the power-folding third-row seat folds up to the sides of the interior, which limits cargo space.
