The Toyota Land Cruiser 4x4 has the off-road chops to take you to the edge of the planet and back. No other 4x4 SUV can deliver the same combination of legendary reliability, refinement and outright luxury with off-road capability that embarrasses virtually every other luxury SUV.
Featuring an updated design, the eight-passenger 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser (MSRP $77,955) builds on its 60 years of legend, staying ahead of the competition with new off-road enhancements, advanced technologies and additional luxury features.
The stout, body-on-frame architecture of the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser maximizes durability, towing capacity (8,500 pounds) and strength while minimizing undesirable body flex.
An equally stout 5.7-liter V8 generates 381 hp and 401 lb/ft of torque through an incredibly smooth and seamless six-speed automatic transmission. When the road degrades to dirt, an all-new Multi-Terrain Select system on the Land Cruiser features settings for rocks, sand and mud to maximize tire grip. To ensure those tires are always keeping contact with the ground, a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) uses automatically disengaging anti-rollbars for maximum articulation off-road and minimum body sway on-road.
A revised version of the Toyota Crawl Control (CRAWL) system enhances off-road driving control and offers five driver-selectable low-range speeds. The CRAWL system manages engine speed/output and braking, so you have a few less things to think about while climbing over obstacles and steep terrain. The TORSEN limited-slip center locking differential in the transfer case also aids in delivering maximum traction to all four wheels.
Also new for 2013 is an Off-Road Turn Assist system that individually applies braking force based on turning direction to help execute a sharper turning radius. The 2013 Land Cruiser also features a slick Multi-Terrain Monitor that shows numerous exterior angles on the dash-mounted navigation system. Of course, it also works great in shopping mall parking lots.
For those times when you and your 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser are restricted to more refined pursuits, Toyota engineers have upped the luxury standards to levels never before seen in a Land Cruiser.
To keep matters simple for buyers, every single available option – from advanced safety equipment to a dizzying array of luxury and technology features – comes as standard equipment on the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser. These features include Smart Key keyless entry with push-button start, a power moonroof, Dynamic Cruise Control, leather upholstery with heated and ventilated front seats and heated second-row seats, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, a center-console cooler to keep drinks and food chilled, Bluetooth hands-free voice control, a Premium Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Navigation system with eight-inch screen and the Toyota-exclusive Entune multi-media system with a 14-speaker Premium JBL audio system featuring CD, HD Radio, MP3, iPod control and USB input.
The Entune system works with a smartphone to deliver integrated entertainment and useful information applications like Bing, OpenTable, movietickets.com and Pandora Internet Radio.
Rich accents like real wood-grain trim and chrome-plated air vents add to the opulence of the Land Cruiser cabin, tasteful LED lighting accents – including Optitron instrument cluster gauges illuminated in white – make the Land Cruiser feel even more luxurious by night.
Because Land Cruiser owners drive their machines in some of the most extreme climates on the planet, the 2013 Land Cruiser boasts 28 air vents throughout the cabin to keep matters cool, even in the middle of the desert. For those in arctic regions, an auxiliary Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater instantly warms air upon engine startup by running it past an electrically heated ceramic element.
Like every Toyota, the Land Cruiser features the STAR Safety System as standard equipment including a long list of advanced safety features like 10 standard airbags, four-wheel disc multi-terrain anti-lock brakes, Active Traction Control (A-TRAC), Vehicle Stability Control and Hill-Start Assist Control.
The 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser is no ordinary 4x4 SUV; it represents the pinnacle of off-road capability, uncompromising luxury and reliability that gives owners the confidence to explore the nether regions of the world.
