2016 Toyota Land Cruiser vs. Its Competition

2016 Toyota Land Cruiser
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The 2016 Land Cruiser is a capable off-roader with a stratospheric price tag that places it in the league with some heavy hitting luxury rivals.

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

The Mercedes-Benz GL isn't quite the off-roader, but it's a comfortable, stylish option with an available diesel engine.

Two rivals come from the Toyota/Lexus family.

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.

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