Land Cruiser′s 8-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) is not your average transmission. It adjusts shift logic depending on throttle input, vehicle speed and incline for efficient power delivery in a variety of conditions. It also features a sequential shift mode so you can select the gears manually if desired.
True to its off-road heritage, Land Cruiser is built on a rugged 10-member high-tensile steel ladder frame for reduced flex and enhanced durability.
Land Cruiser rides on an independent double-wishbone suspension with coil springs and stabilizer bar up front, and a 4-link rear suspension with coil springs, stabilizer bar and semi-floating axle in the rear. It's a proven system that has stood the test of time.
Land Cruiser′s undercarriage is equipped with reinforced skid plates to protect crucial areas like the front suspension, radiator, fuel tank and transfer case.
Land Cruiser features powerful new lighting up front to help you light your way. Redesigned headlights utilize LED elements for both the low and high beams, giving you bright, efficient light when you need it. And when the weather turns sour, integrated LED fog lights help you see and be seen.
When you’re a legend, it’s okay to show off a little. Land Cruiser gets a new front end to complement its iconic style. Up front, the new chrome grille blends into the LED headlights for added sophistication. A new, sculpted hood hints at the powerful V8 underneath, and revised front fenders show that this SUV is ready to flex its muscle.
Energy-efficient LED taillights last long, shine bright and help complete Land Cruiser’s distinctive look.
Observe your surroundings from the comfort of leather-trimmed, multi-stage heated and ventilated front seats. The second-row seats also feature multi-stage heating, so your passengers won’t be left in the cold.

You’ve never experienced climate control like this. The driver, front passenger and two second-row passengers can control their own environments with the help of 28 vents located throughout the cabin. On extremely cold days, a Positive Temperature Coefficient heater warms air instantly by passing it over an electrically heated ceramic element.
The 4.2-in. color Multi-Information Display helps you keep an eye on the information you want. Customize it to show your mpg, inclinometer, individual tire pressure, turn-by-turn directions and more. And when paired with your compatible phone, it can even display your text messages.
Explore more than just the great outdoors. When connected with a compatible smartphone, the Entune® App Suite multimedia system gives you access to more information than ever before.

Leave the ice chest at home—Land Cruiser’s center console features a cooler box that can easily accommodate beverages and snacks.
To help provide extra occupant protection when the vehicle is struck from the side, steel beams are located inside all doors, and are designed to absorb energy and reduce the chance of intrusion into the cabin.
When Land Cruiser’s Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)7detects a vehicle, it illuminates a warning indicator on the appropriate sideview mirror to help you know when it’s safe to change lanes. And with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), when you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot, it provides an audible indicator to warn you of approaching vehicles.
Land Cruiser comes standard with ten airbags, including driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, second-row outboard seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags and all-row Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags (RSCA) with cutoff switch.
Lane Departure Alert (LDA) is designed to help you stay in your lane and help keep you safe from harm. It uses a specialized camera to detect the visible painted lane markings on the road and alert you if you start to drift out of your lane. An audible beeping sound and indicator light on the instrument panel will flash so that you can then take corrective action.
