Toyota Land Cruiser Overview

Toyota's flagship SUV has the same powerful 5.7-liter V8 as the Tundra pickup. It is luxurious, quick, quiet, comfortable, and refined, but it is thirsty for fuel at 14-mpg overall. It rides very comfortably, and the interior is roomy and well-finished. The Land Cruiser showed terrific off-road performance in our tests, partly because of its crawl mode to help ascend and descend steep slopes. But on-road handling falls well short of being agile. A 50/50-split third-row seat folds up against the sides of the cargo area rather than into the floor, which takes up storage room. The permanently engaged four-wheel-drive system is standard. 2016 brings a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, exterior restyling, and advanced safety features.
