When it comes to technology, the Land Cruiser is user-friendly. Bright, clear gauges and simplified controls make performing basic functions a snap. Off the pavement, the Land Cruiser is hard to beat, with its ample ground clearance and long-travel suspension that are capable of conquering everything from muddy trails to skull-sized rocks. Best of all, the collection of off-road driving aids-like Crawl Control, which allows the driver to focus on steering while the computers handle everything else, make it easy for even inexperienced off-roaders to feel like they are king of the hill, writes TAJUDEEN ADEBANJO with reports from Edmund.com and Yahoo.
The Land Cruiser is immensely capable, comfortable and more or less fully loaded in its single trim level. Whether rock crawling or mall crawling, the Land Cruiser is more than ready to deal with whatever route thrown at it, and it will do so with the aplomb of its fancier competition.
The 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser gets a new eight-speed automatic transmission for better acceleration. New safety features include a front collision avoidance system with pedestrian detection, plus blind spot and rear cross-traffic warning systems. Finally, on the electronics front, there is an updated Entune infotainment system with Siri Eyes Free technology, a Qi wireless phone charger and a new dual-screen rear-seat video entertainment system.
With roots going back to 1957 and a legion of loyal fans around the world, the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the best-known SUVs on the road.
While the big V8 engine boasts 381 horsepower, it returns a sobering 15 mpg combined. Inside, the Land Cruiser disappoints with a cramped third-row seat that doesn’t fold into the floor to maximise cargo space. There is also the Land Cruiser’s luxury-grade price. It is largely justified considering how much equipment comes standard, but it does put this big three-row SUV in a different league.
