Toyota's iconic full-size SUV is renown for its adventure-seeking spirit, but it is also highly versatile, luxurious, and refined.

The Toyota Land Cruiser and Land Rover Range Rover are long-time rivals in the full-size SUV class. Let's see how the latest versions compare:
Equipped with Toyota's mighty 5.7-liter V8 as standard, the 2016 Land Cruiser is one highly capable SUV. The Land Cruiser's V8 delivers 381 hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque to all four wheels via a full-time four-wheel drive (4WD) system, with a limited slip differential as standard equipment. In comparison, the Range Rover's 4WD system has far less power to transfer to the ground, as the standard 3.0-liter V6 produces just 340 hp and 332 lb.-ft. of torque. With less power, Range Rover drivers may not even miss the Toyota's standard limited slip differential, which is not available on the base Range Rover model.
While the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser and Land Rover Range Rover are offered at a similar starting price, the base MSRP doesn't tell the whole story. The 2016 Land Cruiser holds significant advantages not only in standard power and performance, but also in standard amenities. First off, the Toyota can seat up to eight passengers, compared to the Range Rover's five. The passengers in the Land Cruiser will also experience a more enjoyable ride, thanks to standard features not found on the base Range Rover, like ventilated front seats, power moonroof, a 14-speaker sound system, and - a passenger favorite - the refrigerated cooler box. For a comparably equipped Range Rover, expect to spend at least $10,000 more than the Land Cruiser.
