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.
For decades the Land Cruiser name has been on a continually progressing series of extremely capable Toyota vehicles, from the original Jeep-like versions to the current contender for SUV King of the Hill. It seats eight, can tow a trailer of 8,500 pounds and has almost-unbelievable capabilities off the pavement – and is also one of the most thoroughly luxurious and fully equipped SUVs on the planet. But magnificence is not to be found in the bargain basement, and the Land Cruiser's rivals now include Land Rover's Range Rover and Mercedes-Benz's GL. And, since everything is included as standard equipment, there is no "base" version. The only choices are exterior and interior colors. The Cruiser is for healthy bank accounts and strong credit ratings.

"Have had this for a year now and can safely say it is a very solid, powerful and comfortable vehicle. Anyone buying this for the gas mileage won't be happy but what do you expect for having 381hp and 400ftlb torque. I'm still blown away by it's solid build (all in Japan btw). Have always owned Toyota's and wanted the best for my family."

"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."
