Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
For 2013, the Land Cruiser receives a host of new interior features and a slightly refreshed exterior design. New xenon headlights with integrated LED running lights, restyled taillights and a revised front grille mark the notable exterior changes. Inside, the 2013 Land Cruiser receives a new multimedia navigation system, perforated leather-trimmed seating surfaces, a color multi-information display and numerous interior trim updates.
The 2010 Land Cruiser now offers Toyota's Safety Connect telematics system. Available by subscription only, the system can detect when the airbags deploy and call for assistance, or help police track the vehicle if it is stolen. Also new is an upgraded audio system featuring a USB port and Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity.
For 2008, the Toyota Land Cruiser grows longer, wider and roomier. The new 5.7-liter V8 is one liter larger and produces 116 more horsepower. All-new front suspension, revised rear suspension and several new technological advancements combine to improve on-road ride without compromising off-road potential.
The Land Cruiser is Toyota's largest and longest-selling SUV. The current version can trace its roots back to 1992, which makes it a highly-proven design. Big, rugged and with room for eight, the Land Cruiser is a full-purpose SUV with the tested ability to tackle tough off-road situations. Despite its solid-gold reputation and strong resale value, some buyers may find that newer SUVs from Ford, Nissan and Chevrolet offer smoother rides, superior passenger and cargo space and quieter interiors. And those who require their SUVs to tow more than 6,500 pounds may prefer something with more muscle than the Land Cruiser's 265-horsepower V8 engine.

"If you're obsessed with brands and bling then the Land Cruiser isn't for you. Spending $70K on a Toyota will make some people wince but you get what you pay for with the latest Land Cruiser. Living in Arizona this vehicle provides great flexibility, towing capacity, ability to transport 7 people and lots of creature comforts (Nav, DVD, keyless entry, Bluetooth, EXCEPTIONAL air conditioning and climate control, refrigerator built into the center console, etc.). But the real treat for those who like to go places that other vehicles won't take them is the Land Cruiser's ability to navigate rough terrain, ascend hills and provide great suspension. Again, if you want to showoff then go with a Mercedes, BMW, Porsche or other SUV that will get stuck in the mud. If you want a killer SUV and you're adventurous, then look into the Toyota Land Cruiser and start planning your camping, skiing, and other outdoor adventures!"

"Just got my third LC in 19 years. drove one '91 for 8 years (still running great, now it's my kid's car), a '99 (sold by itself, did not even need to offer it to anyone) and a 2011. I looked around, did research on other brands and each and every one has had its major flaws, from the low profile rims on the Range Rover to the puny suspension on the Q7. This car is worth every cent, great engine, comfy, stylish, excellent torque, with the addition of some really handy gadgets and more spacious seating - having 2 sons over 6'4" tall was another concern, not with the Land Cruiser. I'm up to my third and full of excitement."
