Beastly yet refined V8; capable in the dirt; luxuries and technology galore; 8-passenger seating
Imposing size; poor fuel economy; so-so comfort for rear passengers

2015 Infiniti 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.
2016 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.
2016 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.
2016 Cadillac Escalade -- If you don't need the Toyota's off-road ability and want the ultimate in bling, the newly redesigned Escalade delivers. It's not the most gratifying luxury SUV to drive, but it has an image like no other.
