2006 Toyota Land Cruiser Review

The Car Connection Expert Review

(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.

2016 Toyota Land Cruiser 4-Door 4WD (Natl)

2016 is a vast improvement over the 2015. I think it is the best SUV on the road if Price is a secondary concern.

I have driven both vehicles in modest off road settings and heavy snow and both vehicles perform exceptionally well. I wish that one could increase the ground clearance for very heavy snow but you can't have... + More »
