The Badass Toyota You Forgot All About Has Just Been Given A New Look

Luxury

Say hello to the 2016 Land Cruiser.

Remember the Land Cruiser? Toyota’s iconic 4x4 has turned into a beast of a luxury SUV, sitting atop its lineup in terms of price, luxury and capability. The partially new 2016 Land Cruiser is still an off-roading beast but is also safety-focused as well. So, what’s new and exciting? Well, everything in front of the A-pillar is new. Yup, that grille and those LED headlights are all new. The rear is new-ish as well, with a new bumper, center chrome bar and taillights (both the lights and the design).

The rear is new-ish as well, with a new bumper, center chrome bar and taillights (both the lights and the design). Under the hood sits a 5.7-liter V8 good for 401 lb-ft of torque at 3,600 rpm. A new eight-speed automatic transmission, a first for Toyota, runs the show. There are no interior options because Toyota says it comes fully equipped, meaning buyers need only choose a color. We think it all looks pretty sweet, especially the massive flat screens mounted into the headrests. The 2016 Land Cruiser is decked out with Toyota’s Sense-P, a suite of safety tech that includes Frontal Collision Avoidance and Mitigation, Lane Departure Alert, Auto High Beams and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

The 2016 Land Cruiser has a bunch of tech to help with off-roading as well, with two especially cool features in Off-Road Turn Assist and CRAWL Control. Off-Road Turn Assist shortens the turn radius by applying slight brake pressure to the inside wheel, useful for narrow trails or roads. CRAWL Control lets the driver select one of five modes that regulate engine speed and output along with braking so that more focus can be placed on steering. There’s no word on pricing for the new Land Cruiser but these things don’t come cheap.
