Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is unchanged.The 2018 Land Cruiser comes fully loaded apart from a rear-seat entertainment system. It's likely something you can skip if you use tablets and other devices to keep your family entertained.

PROS
One of the most off-road-capable SUVs around
Surprisingly comfortable ride and capable handling for a big SUV
Commanding view of the road ahead

CONS
A Toyota badge at a price that matches luxury marques
Poor fuel economy
Second- and third-row seats lack space and versatility

The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is a conundrum: it’s way better on-road than its off-road credentials suggest it should be, but that doesn’t mean it’s for everyone.

Pros
Proper off-road cred
Great ride quality
Decadent interior
Dripping with personality and heritage
Strong V-8

Cons
Ponderous steering
Ghastly expensive
The Lexus LX 570 exists, too
Miserable fuel economy
Do you really need all those off-road toys?
