You won't run short of standard features and available options to ratchet up the price, either. All models come standard with a JBL six-disc CD changer stereo with 14 speakers, Smart Key keyless entry and push-button start, security system, cruise control, power moonroof, auto-dimming side and rearview mirrors, HomeLink garage door opener, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, and heated power front and rear seats with driver memory settings. With all this technology at hand, it's easy to feel like the dash is "mission control and you're the NASA engineer," says Autoblog.
The Land Cruiser's off-road capabilities are prodigious, thanks in part to its rugged body-on-frame construction and in part to its wide range of assistive technologies, including Hill Assist Control, Active-TRAC, and Downhill Assist Control. All of these can be activated and adjusted by controls in the center console.
Available options include a rear-seat entertainment system with 9-inch screen, Bluetooth hands-free calling, sonar-based backup and rearview monitor system, heated second-row seats, and a center console refrigerated compartment. A newly upgraded navigation system for 2010 is also available, as is the all-new Safety Connect telematics system that can inform emergency services in the case of an accident. Autoblog likes the 9-inch touchscreen, noting its "excellent resolution and all-condition visibility." Edmunds points out that "there is only one trim level," but Car and Driver states, "every convenience item known to the driving public has been integrated."
The 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser includes plenty of features to keep every potential driver happy, whether they're a gearhead or just along for the ride.
