2015 Toyota Land Cruiser vs. Its Competition

2015 Toyota Land Cruiser
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The 2015 Land Cruiser is a capable off-roader with a price tag that places it well into luxury car territory.

The Lexus LX might make more sense in this segment, as the Land Cruiser's near-twin with more cachet.

The Land Rover Range Rover offers unmatched recognition and equally good off-roading prowess.

The Mercedes-Benz GL isn't quite the performer when it comes to rock crawling, but it's a comfortable, stylish option with an available diesel engine.

The Toyota Sequoia offers more practicality at a lower price, but it's not as good off-road.

It can tow, though, so it's worth considering if you're just in need of a family hauler.

Quick Specs
7.6
The 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser is every bit the off-road machine that it always has been--but the price is so, so high.
9.2
The 2015 Range Rover is the most advanced and luxurious model yet from Land Rover, combining modern styling and convenience with classic ruggedness and off-road prowess.
7.8
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is basically a last-generation S-Class interior riding on one of the most off-road-worthy chassis out there; it makes almost no sense, which is why people seem to gravitate toward it.
8.6
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class offers the most Mercedes luxury to the most people, with a pleasant ride and easy driving dynamics to boot.
7.6
The 2015 Toyota Sequoia has room for the entire family and can tow a boat with ease, but its a challenge to maneuver for daily driving, and it's thirsty, too.
