Luxury is standard on redesigned Land Cruiser

The Land Cruiser features 8-passenger seating

Toyota has continually sold Land Cruiser models in the United States since 1957. Over the decades, the Land Cruiser has evolved into an impressive and luxurious SUV.

For 2016, Toyota Land Cruiser receives a whole new look, with the grille, integrated Land Cruiser logo and more all contributing to the new design signature. Additionally, chrome body side molding embossed with the Land Cruiser logo and new-design 18-inch alloy wheels accentuate the Land Cruiser’s muscular profile.

Once again, the Toyota Land Cruiser comes in one version — fully equipped and with seating for eight. There are no factory options. For 2016, new semi-aniline perforated leather is available in the customer’s choice of black or new Terra (brown). The black interior and Terra interiors are accented by Deep Wood trim.

Under the hood

The Land Cruiser’s 381 horsepower 5.7-liter DOHC V8 engine features Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) and produces 401 foot-pounds of torque.

For 2016, a new 8-speed automatic transmission replaces the 6-speed unit. EPA fuel efficiency is 13 mpg in the city, 18 mpg on the highway and 15 combined.

Luxury is not an option

To get the Land Cruiser equipped with the most desirable features, the customer need only choose color. There are six exterior colors, including three new colors for 2016.

The Land Cruiser comes fully equipped, requiring no options or packages to add premium luxury. The very long list of standard amenities includes perforated leather trim, Smart Key keyless entry with push-button start; four-zone automatic front and rear climate control; premium audio system with fourteen-speakers and much more.

With seating for eight, Toyota Land Cruiser dimensions include second row legroom of 34.4-inches, second row shoulder room of 61.1-inches and second row hip room of 58.6-inches. Third row dimensions are 28.3-inches for legroom, 62.3-inches for shoulder room and 56.6-inches for hip room. Cargo volume is 16.1 cubic feet behind third row or 43.0 cubic feet with the third row folded.
