This capable luxury SUV is based on the big, imposing Toyota Land Cruiseritself hardly plebeian, with its slick powertrain, comfortable ride, quiet cabin, and $55,000 sticker price. Added features include a height-adjustable suspension with Sport and Comfort modes, along with real wood interior trim. Like the Land Cruiser, it has a strong, smooth, quiet 4.7-liter, 230-hp V8. Its also one of the few SUVs that are capable off-road and smooth on pavement. Electronic stability control is standard, as is full-time four-wheel drive. Generous cargo space and a folding 50/50 split third seat add versatility.
