2019 Toyota Land Cruiser vs. Its Competition

2019 Toyota Land Cruiser
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Lexus LX 570 is a Land Cruiser draped in better leather and real wood trim for not much more money—but most Lexus buyers wouldn’t consider the Toyota and vice versa.

Mercedes-Benz’s two big SUVs—the GLS and the G-Wagen—bookend the Land Cruiser.

The city-friendly GLS has an S-Class-lite interior and crossover-comfortable dynamics, while the G-Class is a formidable off-roader with perhaps too much swagger for many buyers.

Land Rover and Toyota have been adversaries for decades, but they’ve taken different approaches to their big SUVs.

The ultra-luxe Range Rover boasts a staggering array of configurations, with prices to match.

And don’t discount the Infiniti QX80, which has a spacious interior and surprisingly good on- and off-road capabilities.
