2017 Toyota Land Cruiser vs. Its Competition

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Toyota Land Cruiser buyers probably don't do a lot of cross-shopping, but those who do will inevitably want to look at the razor-sharp Lexus LX.

The two trucks share a powertrain but have very different suspension configurations and styling.

The Land Rover Range Rover will be even more accepted at your local country club, but if you think a Land Cruiser is expensive, wait until you start piling options onto a Range Rover.

For true off-road capability and heritage, the Mercedes-Benz G Class nearly matches the Land Cruiser, although it is an anachronistic throwback on the highway.

The German brand's GLS Class is far more polished but is only as much of an off-roader as its S Class-on-stilts positioning would suggest.

And if you're a Toyota loyalist in need of room for the whole family, the Toyota Sequoia delivers more stretch-out space at a much lower price point.

Quick Specs
A legend in its own time, the Toyota Land Cruiser is as much a throwback to the past as it is a showcase for Toyota's engineering prowess.
Few vehicles match the 2017 Range Rover's luxury and performance on pavement; fewer still can keep up with it when the pavement ends.
Amazingly refined, the Lexus LX 570 hides its utilitarian roots exceptionally well.
A Mercedes-Benz G-Class isn't a logical buy, but that's just why it has endured so long. Not everyone wants an economical sedan, after all.
The 2017 Toyota Sequoia hasn't kept up with the times, even for a body-on-frame SUV. Look closely at the competition.
