The 2009 Toyota Land Cruiser offers plenty of features—some high-tech ones for getting through the tough stuff, as well as some modern interior luxuries.

In conjunction with a Torsen limited-slip locking center differential, a live axle in the rear, a stout frame with "fully boxed sections and no fewer than eight crossmembers," KDSS (adjust roll stiffness on the fly), and CRAWL (foot-free crawling over rough terrain), the Land Cruiser's off-road capabilities are prodigious. Key off-road features on the 2009 Toyota Land Cruiser include Hill Assist Control, Active-TRAC, and Downhill Assist Control. Some of these systems help keep the Land Cruiser on the road (VSC, EBD), while the others help it perform flawlessly off. "Gizmos and abbreviations abound," says Car and Driver, speaking of the Land Cruiser's standard HAC, VSC, EBD, A-TRAC, and DAC.

Standard equipment in the 2009 Toyota Land Cruiser includes 18-inch alloy wheels, power and heated front seats, leather upholstery, four-zone automatic climate control, a 14-speaker JBL audio system with a six-CD changer and auxiliary audio jack, a sunroof, auto-dimming mirrors, keyless ignition, and parking sensors. The Upgrade Package includes items like a rear-seat entertainment system with 9-inch screen, a nav system with Bluetooth and backup camera, heated second-row seats, and a center console refrigerated compartment. Though Edmunds points out "there is only one trim level," Car and Driver states, "every convenience item known to the driving public has been integrated."

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.
