The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Still an off-road specialist by design, the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser's grown ever so expensive; did it ever make sense? It has more power and more luxury features than ever, but the G Class' boxy charm and its hardcore off-road talent remain intact.
