There are few SUVs that have such a strong following globally as the Land Cruiser. A vehicle often associated with reliability and resale, but how does this aging platform hold up against the competition from Ford, Chevy, and RAM. We talk about the pros and cons of the 2017 - 2018 Toyota.

      Great review. Thx. Those rear seats suck piles. The single biggest drawback is that the seats don’t fold away into the floor.

      I drive a 2019 Land Cruiser in the Philippines that has a diesel engine (all we can get here) - the fuel economy is great 10-12 km/100 litres. If Toyota sold the diesel version in the US they would open up the market for this great vehicle as if it was gas only here, I agree I would not want to pay to fuel it!

      Nicholas King I think you mean 10-12 litres per 100km. I doubt it takes 100 litres to travel 12km!!

      My mom bought a 2005 Land Cruiser brand new, fully loaded, and she still has it to this day, 15 years later, driving it every day. 270,000 miles on tue clock. I learned to drive on that car, I’ve taken it all across California and parts of Nevada and Arizona, taken it off reading on hunting trips with my dad out in the Mojave desert. I just love that car so much.

      Mr Geese: do you know why Toyota doesn`t offer Prado (LC 150) in North America? It it narrower and offers 2.8l petrol and 2.9l diesel 4-cylinder. The millage is much better, the comfort is lower but then in comes much cheaper.

      "tarted up" really " the Range Rover is probably the most tarted up vehicle along with the bum w x5 and merc GL and escalade among others overpriced and reliable,the cruiser and Lexus could be priced 200k and it is still underpriced for the build quality the overbuilt nature of this truck ,moron baldy white enthusiast I notice you don't use this kind of language on german and American metal,

      These don't sell in America for one reason: price. $85K is just too much for this truck. Its the best 4X4 on the market, but its just too expensive. If they offered it at about 50-60K then it would sell very well. The problem is that it doesn't offer anything special for the price tag other than pedigree, which most people don't care about. For people to spend 85K it has to have some sort of X-factor so people can justify the high price. That said i really want one.

      Outstanding presentation. You're a cross between Tony Starks, Clark Kent and Jerry Steinfeld. Meant as a compliment, of course.

      This SUV makes more sense in other countries that people use them for their off-road capability everyday. In the U.S. they're used by people that can afford them but don't take advantage of them

      Nice review, I just got my 2019 three weeks ago and love it. You comments about the brakes are spot on 👍. Still trying to get used to them. Gas mileage does suck, but my wife and I Have been driving under powered 4Runners since 2002 and I will take the power and torque for 5 mpg less. Good job, thanks.

      This is king in the South America! But with the v8 diesel of course. Honestly, only Toyota and Nissan can keep up in bush.
