The Toyota Land Cruiser has etched its name in stone as being one of the best off-roaders that
you can take on wild adventures and have a solid car that you can count on in different
environments. However, in recent years–more specifically, in 2021–they’ve focused more on the
luxury aspect of the car, taking it to a level never seen before for this off-roader SUV.New Toyota Land cruiser 2021-2022

With a hefty price tag for the base model at $87,030 and $89,240 for the Heritage Edition, you
might be wondering whether it’s worth the prodigious price, or if the car is like any other SUV in
the same category with a simply overinflated price.

Well, for starters, when it comes to off-roaders, there’s no doubt that the Land Cruiser delivers
exceptional performance and would top any other off-roaders in the game. The majority of the
competitors in this category shift their focus towards making the car more comfortable and
luxurious as opposed to outfitting it with features for off-roading purposes. So it’s safe to say that
you won’t find a car with rock-climbing abilities like that of Taoytato’s Land Cruiser. It’s simply

With a base price higher than most of its competitors, the base model boasts a 381-horsepower
V8 engine, speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel drive. It also comes with standard
features such as a 9inch touch screen, a navigation system, 14 speakers, smartphone charging
stations, a moonroof, an automatic climate control, heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated
front seats, leather-trimmed upholstery.

But, if you want to splurge a bit more, you might want to invest in the Land Cruiser Heritage
Edition–it’s truly where the money’s at. It features a unique grille design, rooftop rack, 18 inch
BBS wheels, dark exterior accents–and let’s not forget to mention the iconic vintage Toyota
Land Cruiser badge. It also includes all the features you can find in the base model. What’s also
so great about the Heritage Edition is that it offers an optional third row that will allow you to
bring more people during your adventures.

As for the engine and performance, the off-roader boasts a 5.7-liter V8 engine with 8-speed
automatic transmission. With this combination, they generate 381 horsepower and 401-pound
feet of torque. Despite the fact that the Land Cruiser has a bulky and beefy exterior, the driving
experience is smooth and rewarding and it’s quick off the line. The frame was redesigned to
improve on the rigidity that previous models had, and the 2021 model is now 200 kilograms
lighter with new suspension systems.

One neat feature that the new Land Cruiser has is the Multi-Terrain Monitor, which allows the
driver to see in real-time the road surface they’re driving on, as well as the view of the position
of the wheels. If that’s not useful enough on its own, they had to take it to the next level by
adding an automatic system that will judge the quality of the road surface the car is being driven
on and selecting the appropriate driving mode accordingly.

The car has a towing capacity of 8100 pounds, which is great in comparison to cars like the Jeep
Grand Cherokee. However, it pales in comparison in front of the Ford Expedition, which has a
capacity of 9300 pounds, and the Dodge Durango with a capacity of 8700.

Now that we have the performance out of the way, let’s get into all the deets about the Land
Cruiser’s interior. The attention to detail in the cabin of this car is nothing short of impressive;
the quality of the material used is top-notch, from the doorknobs all the way to the buttons. This
is not to say that it would beat the Mercedes GLS-class in terms of a luxurious high-quality
interior–it’s got its own category of opulence.

That being said, the interior of the Land Cruiser
still raises the standard for luxurious off-roaders. The front and second-row are comfortable and
offer sufficient legroom. The third row is a bit on the smaller side, making it best suited for
children. While the cargo space with 8 people configuration is around 16, it can provide up to 41
cubic feet if the third row isn’t in use–giving it an edge over the Lincoln Navigator.


In terms of safety, rest assured that you’re driving a vehicle that has a sophisticated system to
keep you safe, even in not-so-great conditions. The 2021 Land Cruiser features the Toyota Safety
Sense system that offers safety driver assistance. Thanks to the Pre-Collision System, the car can
now detect pedestrians, whether it’s in broad daylight or during the nighttime, or bicycle riders if
they cross paths with the car. And for those who have a hard time parking, the new Land Cruise
boasts a Parking Support Brake that will signal you if you’re nearing an obstacle or a pedestrian
when parking the car.

All in all, it’s easy to see why the 2021 Land Cruiser is unmatched in so many aspects–including
its astronomical price tag. It’s best suited for people who are looking for an off-roader that will
handle tough terrains and challenging conditions while still maintaining a sleek and modern
