Go-anywhere off-road capability; beastly-yet-refined V8; strong towing capability; luxuries and technology galore; 8-passenger seating
Imposing size; poor fuel economy; so-so comfort for rear passengers; cramped third-row seat that takes up cargo space even when not in use
After considerable updates last year, the Land Cruiser heads into 2017 unchanged.
Since there are no options, the Land Cruiser makes our job easy. We absolutely recommend this vehicle, especially after last year's round of new features and equipment.
The 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser is offered in only one fully-loaded level. Standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels, skid plates, a surround-view parking camera, a sunroof, keyless entry and ignition, automatic LED headlights, power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors, automatic wipers, adaptive cruise control, 4-zone automatic climate control, heated and ventilated 8-way power front seats, driver memory functions, heated second-row seats, a 50/50-split third-row seat, a power-adjustable steering wheel, a 9-in Entune touchscreen interface, a navigation system, Bluetooth, wireless smartphone charging, a rear-seat entertainment system and a 14-speaker JBL sound system with a CD player, HD Radio, a USB port and an auxiliary audio jack.

2017 Infinit QX80 -- The 3-row QX80 has more expressive styling and comparable V8 power, plus a nice interior. Definitely drive this one if you're serious about the Land Cruiser.
2017 Land Rover Range Rover -- Still the king of luxury SUVs, the Range Rover costs more, but it features an available supercharged V8 and one of the finest cabins at any price. However, there's no third-row seat.
2017 Lexus LX 570 -- The LX 570 is the Land Cruiser's mechanical twin. Although you probably already know whether you'd prefer the Toyota or the Lexus based on their styling and image, the LX 570 is still worth mentioning, since it offers almost the same package as the Land Cruiser.
