Toyota Land Cruiser - Luxury for Off-roading

The 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser is a well mannered on-road and ruggedly capable when the pavement ends. With its strong combination of on-road refinement and off-road chops, the 2010 Land Cruiser is a good choice for buys who want a luxury SUV, but who also want to go off-road. The 2010 shoots right down the middle and hits its mark with its plush and composed ride. It was last redesigned in 2008, so changes for 2010 were minimal.

The Land Cruiser is packed full of impressive technology that allows it to offer a powerful and capable on- and off-road driving experience. The 2010 is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 engine that makes 381 horsepower. The EPA gives it a negative fuel economy rating, scoring 13/18 mpg city/highway. They are typical for the class. For off-road purposes, the full time four wheel drive Land Cruiser features Toyota's Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, which uses a hydraulic link between its front and rear anti-roll bars to effectively respond to rough terrain.

Nothing has changed with the Land Cruiser's shaping or style. It still offers the same traditional styling that continues to resonate with reviewers and buyers. The interior wins praise for its high level of comfort and convenience. The cabin features an eight passenger, three row seating arrangement. The third row is foldable, but it's unfit for adult seating. Included among the Land Cruiser's list of interior features are leather upholstery, a steering wheel with integrated audio and multi-function display controls, and a wide array of storage features that include an overhead console, center-console storage area and cooler.
