With power comes confidence. Land Cruiser's Double Overhead Cam (DOHC) 32-valve V8 develops 381 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. of torque, but that's only part of the story. Technologies such as Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) and an Acoustic Control Induction System (ACIS) help maximize usable power throughout the rpm range.
Land Cruiser's 8-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) is not your average transmission. It adjusts shift logic depending on throttle input, vehicle speed and incline for efficient power delivery in a variety of conditions. It also features a sequential shift mode so you can select the gears manually if desired.
True to its off-road heritage, Land Cruiser is built on a rugged 10-member high-tensile steel ladder frame for reduced flex and enhanced durability.
Land Cruiser rides on an independent double-wishbone suspension with coil springs and stabilizer bar up front, and a 4-link rear suspension with coil springs, stabilizer bar and semi-floating axle in the rear. It's a proven system that has stood the test of time.
The Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) helps keep optimal traction, no matter how uneven the terrain is. When activated, KDSS automatically disconnects the sway bar and adjusts the suspension system for better wheel articulation. So when the road ahead looks challenging, Land Cruiser is ready to help you conquer it with ease.
Challenging terrain requires a different driving strategy. Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) is an innovative system that helps control wheelspin and brake lockup to optimize driving performance over five of the most common off-road surfaces: Rock, Rock & Dirt, Mogul, Loose Rock and Mud & Sand.
This is the ultimate expression of luxury and capability. The 2021 Land Cruiser makes an impression wherever it goes with its legendary off-road prowess and bold exterior details. A stylish front end, LED lighting and chrome side moldings with the Land Cruiser logo help give this SUV an unmistakable presence. So whether you're traversing uncharted terrain or enjoying a night on the town, you can rest assured that you'll always arrive in style.
Land Cruiser features powerful lighting up front to help light your way. The headlights utilize LED elements for both the low and high beams, giving you bright, efficient light when you need it. And when the weather turns sour, integrated LED fog lights help you see and be seen.
When you're a legend, it's okay to show off a little. Up front, the chrome grille blends into the LED headlights for added sophistication. A sculpted hood hints at the powerful V8 underneath, and its front fenders show that this SUV is ready to flex its muscle.
Energy-efficient LED taillights last long, shine bright and help complete Land Cruiser's distinctive look.
Land Cruiser's leather-trimmed steering wheel is not only heated, it features controls for the audio system, Multi-Information Display and Bluetooth® wireless technology.
Observe your surroundings from the comfort of leather-trimmed, multi-stage heated and ventilated front seats. The second-row seats also feature multi-stage heating, so your passengers won't be left in the cold.
Land Cruiser's dashboard is ready to help you take command of your next journey. A sleek design incorporates a large, high-resolution touchscreen display and intuitive controls. And it all comes finished with the exceptional quality you have come to expect from Land Cruiser.
You've never experienced climate control like this. The driver, front passenger and two second-row passengers can control their own environments with the help of 28 vents located throughout the cabin. On extremely cold days, a Positive Temperature Coefficient heater warms air instantly by passing it over an electrically heated ceramic element.
Expeditions often require the assistance of an entire crew. Fortunately, standard Land Cruiser’s spacious cabin offers seating for up to eight. And everyone can ride in comfort, thanks to multi-stage heated and ventilated front seats, a multi-stage heated 40/20/40 split second-row seat with center armrest, and an available 50/50 split third-row seat.
Rear-seat passengers can personalize their entertainment options with the available rear-seat DVD entertainment system. The latest movies, video games and more can be enjoyed on the two 11.6-in. screens placed behind the driver and front passenger seats. So no matter where your expedition takes you, the comforts of home can come along for the ride.
To help provide extra occupant protection when the vehicle is struck from the side, steel beams are located inside all doors, and are designed to absorb energy and reduce the chance of intrusion into the cabin.
When Land Cruiser's Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) detects a vehicle, it illuminates a warning indicator on the appropriate sideview mirror to help you know when it's safe to change lanes. And when you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) provides an audible indicator to warn you of approaching vehicles.
Land Cruiser comes standard with the Star Safety System™, a suite of six advanced safety features that includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Active Traction Control (A-TRAC), Multi-Terrain 4-wheel Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).
Land Cruiser comes standard with ten airbags, including driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, second-row outboard seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags and all-row Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags (RSCA).
