The navigation system absorbs the radio-station-select buttons and some of the automatic climate-control functions, though temperature and fan speed are separate.
Gizmos and abbreviations abound (HAC, VSC, EBD, A-TRAC, DAC), as they do on the other gilt-edge SUVs.
Car and Driver
the options list is slim
Hill-Start Assist Control which offers about 3 seconds of brake hold. This provides time for the driver to move a foot from brake to accelerator while on a steep hill, and is a nifty feature whether off-road or in downtown San Francisco.
There really aren't any options available on the modern Land Cruiser–everything has become a standard feature.
There are power windows, locks and mirrors; a moonroof; leather upholstery; heated front and second-row seats; and four-zone climate control--it now also includes Bluetooth; a navigation system; a rear-seat DVD entertainment system; rain-sensing wipers; a center-console cooled compartment; adaptive cruise control; and a heated, leather-trimmed steering wheel.
On top of that, there's also Toyota Entune. Wrapped into the audio system along with HD radio, satellite radio, a USB port and Bluetooth streaming, Entune enables mobile-phone app connectivity. That means your phone's Bing search can be run through the Land Cruiser's audio system, bringing live results to its navigation screen. Pandora music can filter through its audio system. You can even make OpenTable reservations using voice commands and steering-wheel controls while on the go.
The Land Cruiser's priced in the stratosphere, for a Toyota--and equipment levels are about where they should be.
