5 reasons to buy the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser

1. Brawny V8

If you're shopping for a large SUV with power under the hood, the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser deserves a spot on your list. This model is anchored by a burly 5.7L V8 engine with 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. The engine pairs with an eight-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with sequential shift mode and uphill/downhill shift logic for extra control on varying terrain. A full-time four-wheel-drive system with active traction control (A-TRAC) is also standard for surefooted performance. When properly equipped, the 2021 Land Cruiser boasts an estimated 8,100-lb towing capacity to haul your recreational equipment.

2. Off-road abilities

The 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser remains true to its off-road roots with a rugged steel ladder frame that can traverse uncharted territory with excellent rigidity. This SUV is also equipped with reinforced skid plates to protect the front suspension, radiator, fuel tank, and transfer case when climbing over rocky landscapes. A multi-terrain monitor lets you check your surroundings for obstacles, while the multi-terrain select system provides five customizable modes to optimize driving performance on off-road surfaces. Additionally, the 2021 Land Cruiser includes a Torsen® limited-slip differential to automatically maintain power distribution in traction-reduced situations.

3. Comfortable ride

The 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser is a multifaceted large SUV that can hold its own on off-road trails and sails confidently down city streets and highways. The Land Cruiser features a front-independent double-wishbone suspension and a four-link rear suspension with a semi-floating axle that provides outstanding articulation over bumps, divots, and ditches for a truly comfortable ride.

4. Versatile interior

Need plenty of seating for your crew? The 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser's three-row design is up to the task, offering a standard eight-passenger design that's ideal for families or large groups. However, if two rows suffice, the Heritage trim comes standard with seating for five, providing more cargo space (53.5 cu-ft) to enjoy outdoor adventures. Regardless of your desired configuration, the Land Cruiser's cabin provides supportive seating for long drives, with 34.4 inches of second-row legroom and 28.3 inches in three-row models.

5. Convenient technologies

Whether exploring the city or adventuring through the wilderness, the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser is equipped with useful features to enhance your drive. All trims include the Toyota Smart Key® system with push-button ignition to make it easy to load up and go. An intuitive multimedia system also anchors the dash. It consists of a nine-inch touchscreen with a split-screen display to control the audio system, make and take calls with Bluetooth® connectivity, and select points of interest using the integrated navigation system. The 2021 Land Cruiser also provides several driver aids, including blind-spot monitoring, an integrated backup camera, hill start assist, and more.
