13 mpg city, 18 highway
Toyota's unapologetic about the Land Cruiser's fuel economy. With its massive 5.7-liter V-8 engine and 381 horsepower, the nearly 6000-pound sport-utility vehicle turns in EPA gas mileage of 13 mpg city, 18 highway. It's not even remotely a green-car choice, unless every one of its eight passenger seats is filled--but hey, at least it's better than the nearly identical Lexus LX 570's 12/17-mpg rating, which is likely due to that vehicle's slightly higher curb weight.Those who wish to go green in this class do have a few options, like the Mercedes-Benz GL350 BlueTEC, Cadillac Escalade Hybrid or Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid; all return fuel economy that's in the 20s, but in all cases they're not quite as off-road-focused as the Land Cruiser.
The Land Cruiser's one of the least efficient vehicles on the road of any kind.
