Interior improvements make this Land Cruiser more beautifully trimmed than the last
Edmunds' Inside Line

The sheetmetal is revamped to align it with Toyota's current styling direction, lending the new Land Cruiser a look akin to a Highlander hopped up on HGH.
Motor Trend


The 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser is easy to spot on the road–it's bigger, beefier, and looks more capable than just about anything else in the Toyota lineup–save for maybe the Sequoia. However, it's a different story inside, where it's nearly as plush as its near-twin, the Lexus LX.

Inside, the Land Cruiser has the same, very upright, chunky styling that all the newer Toyota trucks have received. It's a pretty technology-heavy presentation, with a navigation screen top and center, plus climate, audio, and off-road controls below that, and it emphasizes a certain truth about the Land Cruiser's appeal—that it's rooted more in gated communities than in remote outposts. New this year are a perforated leather trim, more glossy woodgrain on the dash, and brighter metallic trim surrounding some of the dash panels.

From the outside, it's instantly recognizable for its size, though the current Land Cruiser also has a few of the most current industry trends going for it–like LED running lights, and it's bigger, bolder grille. While it might not look truly luxurious like the Land Rover lineup–or its near-twin, the Lexus LX 570–the Land Cruiser has the look of a confident off-roader, with big, handsome lines.

Conclusion

The Land Cruiser could use a refresh--and maybe some of the cool vintage cues from the discontinued FJ cruiser.

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.
