Overall Rating


The 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser is a humongous vehicle that is equipped with a monstrous 5.7-liter V8 engine and it is priced at $84,775 for its standalone trim. With a power output of 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque, it delivers phenomenally on-road and on terrain. However, in terms of fuel economy, its offering isn't attractive.

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser

With lavish interiors and a basic infotainment system, the 2017 Land Cruiser gets the best Toyota has to offer. Its bold and majestic stance is something that needs no mention as it attracts tons of attention. However, it faces immense competition from the 2017 Mercedes Benz GLS, Infiniti QX80, and its very own cousin, the Lexus LX 570.

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Interior

“The 2017 Land Cruiser features an interior that is nicer than the average Toyota, with top-quality materials and lots of high-tech items. The overall impression is short of luxury-vehicle standards, but if that's what you're looking for, the similar Lexus LX 570 should satisfy.”- Edmunds

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Safety

8.0/10

"Neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration performed crash tests on the 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser." - Cars.USnews

The 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser has not been crash-tested and has hence not received any safety ratings from either of the authorities, i.e. NHTSA and IIHS. We can only depend on the reputation of the brand Toyota, which is pretty decent.

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Competition

7.0/10

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser VS 2017 Infiniti QX80

The 2017 Infiniti QX80 comes with a more powerful engine that delivers more power, 400 hp, and even better torque of 413 lb.-ft. It also offers better fuel efficiency and acceleration numbers as compared to the Toyota Land Cruiser. The latter offers a well-spaced interior and a better-designed exterior. At a comparatively lesser price tag, which reads $63,850, the 2017 Infiniti QX80 also offers better-done interiors. Thus we would suggest the 2017 Infiniti QX80.

2017 Infiniti QX80

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser VS 2017 Lexus LX 570 Three row

At a price tag that reads $89,990, the 2017 Lexus LX570 offers all specs similar to that of the 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser. However, this hefty price tag is due to the unprecedented luxury and opulence it offers. The elegance that is offered inside out of this machine is almost unmatchable even my the Merc. In terms of power, it offers slightly more than the Toyota Land Cruiser. If you prefer performance over luxury then the Toyota Land Cruiser should be your choice, and if it's vice versa then you must pick the Lexus, I insist.

2017 LEXUS LX 570

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser VS 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS 550

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is looked upon as a close competitor of the Toyota Land Cruiser as they share few historic stories together. If we talk about the seating capacity and size, both the SUVs are quite identical. The Land Cruiser offers extra seats while the GLS offers extra turbochargers, which puts up the advantage on either side.

2017 Mercedes Benz GLS 550

 

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Final Verdict

Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the well-reputed and oldest lineups that are still going on. The 2017 iteration of the Land Cruiser continues offering a bundle of off-road capability with strong performance and comfort. Nonetheless, the ride lags behind in terms of offering modern features as well as delivering a respectable combined fuel economy. Overall, the strengths of the 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser easily outwits its weaknesses. Hence, the ride emerges as a top choice in the luxurious off-road SUV segment.
