www.autobytel.com/toyota/land-cruiser/2013/?id=32972 The Toyota Land Cruiser has been around since the early 1950's when it was built for military use during the Korean War. A few years later the Land Cruiser became a capable civilian vehicle that could handle off-road conditions. The current 200-series Land Cruiser has morphed into a large luxury SUV but still retains its hard-core off-road ability. The 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser has a base price of $78,555.

For almost 60 years Toyota has been producing the Land Cruiser. This is a legendary off-road vehicle that has built a reputation for not only being capable but durable as well. Not to be confused with the Land Rover, the Land Cruiser really has some unique styling cues about it. The Land Cruiser has always been designed to be a gifted off-road sport utility vehicle and in many countries this is used as a police or military vehicle still to this day. Over the decades the Land Cruiser has really evolved; it's been manufactured in all shapes and sizes. Here in the U.S. we primarily get the 8-passenger 4-door version.

Back in 1999, the Land Cruiser was converted over from a 6-cylinder to a V-8 which elevated the SUV's status to a more family friendly vehicle. Today there is a 5.7 liter V-8 engine that makes 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 13 MPG in the city and 18 MPG on the highway.

Overall the interior is great with the Land Cruiser having the ability to carry 8-passengers in comfort. The 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser offers an amazing driving experience. Its size is not too large like a Suburban. Instead the Land Cruiser is the ideal size for an 8-passenger large SUV. This is a great vehicle that you will want to keep in your family for a long time.

      my underlying point still stands, just because of greater sales doesn't make for a better vehicle especially considering populations of countries. No doubt Jeep is far more popular in the US than in UK or Australia, US also has a massive population as part of Jeeps market.

      +ivan f depends on what trim i purchased a 2012 and the new gen 2016 just came
      for the 2012 models in 2012
      it was as follows

      GXR v8 4.6 308 HP fully loaded without leather seats it costs around 56k
      VXR a 5.6 liter engine 368 HP similer to the one in the video costs around 72k USD


      the new generation is almost the same price (its around 3000-5000 USD more expensive) because the land cruiser in kuwait in 2014 was being sold 6500 USD cheaper than the 2012-2013 model because of the heavy competition in kuwait with the Nissan patrol Y62 .


      for the Americans who say its too expensive ,its one of the few cars that i can trust to drive 200 miles of sand dunes in the temperature of 120 F daily for 7 years and it wont even bother to show any wear .

      there are people outside the US that drive their cars for 70k miles each year in extreme heat and terrains , and they only change oil and filter no luxury maintenance


      the only cars that can take the hardest envirement with ease are the toyota land cruiser and the nissan patrol .

      Look guys fully loaded rubicon you have leather seats that are heated. You also have a touch screen. Automatic climate controls. That's enough luxury for me. That would be around 45k. 30k left for mods. The wrangler will also have better resale value. Once "luxury" vehicles gets old and start to have problems nobody would wants them and there off to the junk yard.

      I don't understand why anyone would buy this over the Lexus LX570.  They are basically identical vehicles, and at these prices the difference in cost is insignificant.  With the Lexus you not only get a longer warranty, a higher resale value, but most importantly the prestige of owning a Lexus.  I think Toyota should redesign the Sequoia and rename it Land Cruiser.  It would make the Lexus even more exclusive, while still giving Toyota a full sized luxury SUV.  Doing that would be a win win for both Toyota & Lexus.

      LX doesn't have a locking rear diff, and has a more street focused suspension. Also, lexus maintenance costs more than make up for any value retention advantage it has over the LC.

      why does he say that a Suburban is too big? for a lot of people a Suburban is just right and is a lot more capable and gets about 1 mpg less fuel economy. The greater wheel base of the Suburban is really nice to have under many circumstances. Every vehicle has plusses and minuses, but the fact that this guy makes the stupid statement that a Suburban is "just too big" shows that he really is not a "car guy". My mother has owned many Suburbans and she and I found them ridiculously pleasant and easy to drive.

      a larger vehicle doesnt necessarily mean better under all circumstances for example driving through the bush or up a river banked by trees a narrower or shorter vehicle may be better.
