The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser can still go off-road, but it's become increasingly expensive with time. So expensive, in fact, that it might be a hard sell. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class looks and feels more luxurious than ever, but it's still a hardcore rock-crawler under all that leather.
