The Land Cruiser will not return for the 2022 model year but could re-emerge in the future with a more modern design, updated technology, and a more luxurious cabin. The Land Cruiser is powered by a 5.7-liter V-8 engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This setup generates 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque.

The 2021 Land Cruiser lacks the prestige of equally expensive metal, but it’s a lot more capable than most of them out in the boondocks—something to think about for those few buyers who will actually venture there.

2021 Toyota Land Cruiser Engine, and Performance

The Land Cruiser is powered by a 5.7-liter V-8 engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This setup generates 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. Full-time four-wheel drive is standard. With a ride quality that’s smooth and well-planted, the Land Cruiser delivers comfortable driving dynamics. Its steering feel is light, however, and there’s a fair amount of body roll. Rival SUVs in this price range offer handling that’s more rewarding. In spite of its beefy exterior, the Land Cruiser is relatively quick off the line.

Is Toyota Land Cruiser Good for Purchase?

First, before thinking of purchasing the new Toyota Land Cruiser You should check other SUVs first before deciding on the 2021 Land Cruiser. This new 2021 Land Cruiser hasn’t been redesigned over years now, and it struggles to compete against BMW X7 and Mercedes-Benz GLS, which offers better fuel economy, comfier third-row seats, and more-advanced tech features.

The Land Cruiser also struggles to find its niche in Toyota’s own SUV lineup. It’s outclassed by the Toyota 4Runner in terms of off-road ability, and it’s not as practical as the Toyota Sequoia for shuttling around passengers and cargo. Both are far less expensive as well.

As far as the Land Cruiser’s cabin is concerned, it’s all about the execution, and there’s impressive attention to detail at play. While the cabin isn’t as visually opulent as that of rivals such as the Mercedes GLS-class, it’s home to top-rate materials. Build quality is excellent, and knobs and switches move with a weightiness that conveys quality.

The front row provides comfortable accommodations and commanding sightlines. There’s lots of room in the second row, but the third row is best suited for kids. With the standard eight-person seating setup, the Land Cruiser provides 16 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row and 41 cubic feet behind the second. There’s more cargo space in competing models like the Lincoln Navigator, which provides about 20 cubic feet of room for your belongings behind its third row.
