2015 Toyota Land Cruiser Overview
2015 Toyota Land Cruiser Exterior
One glance at the exterior of the 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser will tell you that this is no ordinary SUV. Instead, Toyota has peppered the vehicle with luxurious features and finishes designed to make this one of the most eye-catching vehicles offered by the Japanese automaker. The Land Cruiser sits 8.9 inches off the ground, making it a beast both on- and off-road. It boasts an abundance of chrome features, plus 18-inch alloy wheels, HID headlights, integrated fog lights, and heated power side mirrors. In a nutshell, the 2015 Land Cruiser offers luxury along with practicality, as evidenced by its hefty MSRP of $79,905.
2015 Toyota Land Cruiser Performance
If performance is what you’re looking for, the 2015 Land Cruiser is right up your alley. It comes equipped with a mega 5.7-liter V8 engine good for 381 ponies. This engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to all four wheels at all times. This allows the Land Cruiser to easily navigate all types of terrain, from the bumpy pothole-ridden road by your house to the rocky, rugged track that leads to your favorite camping spot.
2015 Toyota Land Cruiser Efficiency
The 2015 Land Cruiser is a true-to-life SUV rather than a crossover. As a result, efficiency numbers aren’t particularly spectacular. The EPA rates the 2015 Land Cruiser with 13 mpg city and 18 mpg highway, which gives the SUV a combined rating of 15 mpg. While that doesn’t sound too impressive, it’s actually right in line when compared with the competition—the 2.0-liter V8 Land Rover Range Rover Sport and 5.6-liter V8 Infiniti QX80 each get just 16 mpg combined, while the EPA ratings of the 4.7-liter Mercedes-Benz GL550 4MATIC match that of the 2015 Land Cruiser exactly.
2015 Toyota Land Cruiser Interior
Inside the 2015 Land Cruiser, you’re greeted with a myriad of warmth and luxury (which you’d expect for a near-$80K price tag). The SUV offers comfortable perforated leather seating for eight passengers, plus multi-stage heated and ventilated front seats. The leather theme continues on the steering wheel and shift lever, while passengers are kept comfortable with the Land Cruiser’s standard four-zone automatic front and rear climate control. And even if your off-road adventures land you in the middle of nowhere, the Land Cruiser’s standard Premium HDD Navigation will set you back on the right track in no time.
2015 Toyota Land Cruiser Safety
As with most vehicles catered to families, safety is of utmost importance in the 2015 Land Cruiser. Standard features include 10 airbags, LATCH anchors for child seats, pre-collision system, front and rear parking assist sonar, Safety Connect®, and ToyotaCare no-cost maintenance plan.
