2020 Toyota Land Cruiser vs. Its Competition

2020 Toyota Land Cruiser
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Land Cruiser owners are a loyal lot, so it’s not likely many competitors will tempt them.

The Lexus LX 570 is largely the same truck, albeit with a different road-oriented suspension and a much nicer interior.

Archrival Land Rover’s Range Rover is as plush and capable as they come, and it’s priced to match.

You won’t find much of a Range Rover for the price of a Land Cruiser.

The Nissan Armada and its plusher Infiniti QX80 sibling are close competitors in places like the Middle East, and both are underrated haulers with adequate off-road ability and a spacious interior.

Our new favorite is the redesigned Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, which lives up to the S in its name by providing S-Class luxury with go-anywhere ability.

Don’t miss it.

Quick Specs
5.4
The 2020 Toyota Land Cruiser is a bruiser with few luxuries for the money, but we love it anyway.
7.8
The Range Rover may have lost the crown of "most expensive SUV" to Bentley or Rolls-Royce, but it still sets the bar for style and class.
5.6
The 2020 Lexus LX 570 disguises its truck-based roots well with brash lines balanced by a calming interior, but be prepared for prodigious thirst.
7.4
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class is a three-row crossover SUV that redefines luxurious family transport.
5.6
The 2020 Nissan Armada is an old-school SUV with more charms than its brutish proportions might suggest.
