Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

With its luxury appointments and on-road manners, the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser might seem to have nothing in common with the rugged, no-nonsense Land Cruisers Toyota built for decades starting in the 1950s. But today's Land Cruiser is nearly unassailable once the pavement ends, maintaining the original version's go-anywhere reputation.

Pros
Very capable off-road
Comfortable ride and capable handling for a big SUV
Commanding view of the road ahead

Cons
Second- and third-row seats are clumsy and lack space
Poor fuel economy even by large SUV standards
Limited smartphone connectivity
