Edmunds' Inside Line

The sheetmetal is revamped to align it with Toyota's current styling direction, lending the new Land Cruiser a look akin to a Highlander hopped up on HGH.
Motor Trend


The latest Toyota Land Cruiser is thoroughly modern up close, but you'll know it from a distance. The rugged, class, somewhat safari-linked look is instantly recognizable. But at arm's length, the latest Land Cruiser isn't inspiring like some of its Land Rover rivals; the issue is that while the Land Cruiser used to have a unique look, the latest version, introduced a couple of years ago, looks a bit too much like its Sequoia and Titan brand-mates, in our opinion. Objectively, though, the Land Cruiser keeps with tradition, in looking confident and off-road-ready.

Inside, the Land Cruiser has the same, very upright, chunky styling that all the newer Toyota trucks have received. It's a pretty technology-heavy presentation, with a navigation screen top and center, plus climate, audio, and off-road controls below that, and it emphasizes a certain truth about the Land Cruiser's appeal—that it's rooted more in gated communities than in remote outposts.

Conclusion

The 2011 Land Cruiser looks more like a modern Toyota SUV than an off-road icon.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
