As per Toyota’s estimates, the latest Land Cruiser achieves a combined fuel economy of 27 miles per gallon, a significant increase over the old model with a combined rating of just 14 mpg.

The Downhill Assist Control modulates the SUV’s speed when descending steep grades. The Multi-Terrain Select system allows the drivers to adjust the drivetrain settings for conditions like mud, rocks, and sand.

Additionally, the upper trim levels of the vehicle feature a Multi-Terrain Monitor that displays images in front, beneath, and along the sides of the vehicle.

It provides up to 8.7 inches of ground clearance and an impressive approach, departure, and break-over angles of 31, 22, and 25 degrees, respectively.

The new Land Cruiser has multiple comforts in the cabin, with even the base 1958 trim featuring heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. It also comes with an 8.0-inch infotainment screen and a six-speaker stereo.

All Land Cruisers have the Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 technology suite, including a pre-collision system, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and road sign recognition.

Toyota has not yet disclosed the complete pricing details for the Land Cruiser. However, during its debut in August, the company indicated that the starting price would fall within the mid-$50,000 range.
