Expert Quotes:

13 mpg city, 18 highway
U.S. EPA





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.

Conclusion

The Land Cruiser's one of the least efficient vehicles on the road of any kind.

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.
