2011 Toyota Land Cruiser Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

The Land Cruiser is an eight-seat full-size SUV. It's larger than Toyota's Highlander and 4Runner midsize SUVs and smaller than the full-size Sequoia, and the Land Cruiser is more expensive than all three. At this size and price, competitors include the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, Mercedes-Benz M-Class and GL-Class, and the Porsche Cayenne S.

New for 2011
A new standard feature is a brake override system that takes precedence over the accelerator if both pedals are pressed at the same time. An active front seat-belt pretensioning system that previously was optional is now standard; the front seat belts retract when the brakes are applied suddenly or when tire slippage is detected.

Of Toyota's current SUVs, the Land Cruiser looks most like the Highlander. One major difference is that the Land Cruiser is a truck-based, body-on-frame model, which puts it in the same category as Toyota's FJ Cruiser, 4Runner and Sequoia. Exterior features include:

  • 18-inch wheels
  • Fog lamps
  • Front and rear frame-mounted tow hooks

Although it has eight seats divided among three rows, the Land Cruiser has a shortcoming that's common to truck-based SUVs: Its interior space isn't as great as you'd expect from its outside girth. The headroom and legroom measurements are less than the midsize Highlander's. Only in width does it exceed the Highlander — most notably in the third row.
