(2005 model shown)

Land Cruiser

Toyota's largest sport-utility vehicle receives a number of cosmetic and performance-oriented upgrades for 2006, none the least of which is added under-hood power. Its 4.7-liter V-8 engine is enhanced by the addition of Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), which brings its power rating up to 275 horses - an increase of 40 over the 2005 version - and 332 lb-ft of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission remains the only available gearbox. Exterior alterations include a revised grille, headlamps, and taillamps, 18-inch high-gloss alloy wheels, and a available rear spoiler. Also added are a standard tire pressure monitor system and optional hydraulic automatic height control and adaptive variable suspension systems. As before, four-wheel drive and a host of sophisticated chassis control systems, including four-wheel-disc anti-lock power brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist, Vehicle Skid Control, traction control, and a locking center differential, are standard. A tire-pressure monitor is newly added for 2006. Front-side and side-curtain airbags, a satellite navigation system and front-side and side-curtain airbags and a backup video monitor are optional.

Liked it right off from day one. Travelled 133,000 km and is reliable and takes a huge amount of camping gear and accessories. Brilliant for purpose and looking at getting the next one.

Yes this truck is not as flashy as an Escalade, it's understated elegance. It's nice to not see many around, but for those that know what a land cruiser is, they understand what they're getting. The LC is... + More »
