With a global, loyal fan base, the Toyota Land Cruiser has had long-standing success over the years, known for its longevity, ruggedness, reliability and, in recent years, premium luxury. Here are five good reasons to buy Toyota's longest-running series, the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser.

Durable

For decades, the Land Cruiser has shown and proven its off-road chops, and as time goes on, it has evolved into a luxury SUV that can still virtually go anywhere. With a powerful 381-horsepower V8 with 401 lb-ft of torque, the all-wheel-drive Land Cruiser delivers on and off the pavement with pure boldness and confidence. It can even tow a max of 8,100 pounds.

Premium Features

The Land Cruiser comes in one trim level, and you can bet that it's fully loaded. It offers rear-seat DVD entertainment systems, a cooler box and 4-zone climate control with 28 different vents throughout that are sure to accommodate any passenger's temperature requests. It's even equipped with Toyota Safety Sense P, a safety package that assists the driver and includes lane departure and adaptive cruise control among many other features.

Rich History

Originating from a military Jeep-type demand back in the '50s, the Land Cruiser gained popularity for being extremely reliable. It went on to build a reputation for tackling any terrain or environment -- deserts, mountains, you name it. It still holds a worldwide iconic status, and the latest Land Cruiser adds more luxury and refinement to its ongoing history.

Functional Space

Unlike other 3-row SUVs, the Land Cruiser has a useful and functional interior. It readily seats eight passengers, and the heated second-row seats also slide forward and recline for extra comfort. Got cargo? No problem. With the second and third rows folded flat, there's a spacious 81.7 cu ft. of storage.

Top Technology

Inside the luxurious Land Cruiser, a 9-inch touchscreen and a simple control layout offer user-friendly technology. The Entune infotainment system allows you access to your smartphone apps and the ability to stream Pandora Radio. Meanwhile, the multi-terrain monitor lets you view your immediate surroundings at the push of a button if driving on rough treacherous road or terrain.

Autotrader Says

Adventurous and luxurious with deep legendary roots and off-road ability, it's no wonder this Toyota SUV has around 60 years of credit. Check out the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser to see why millions have come to love it.
