2014 Toyota Land Cruiser Review

The 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the highest ranked vehicles in its class. Not only does it have powerful acceleration and a handsome interior, but it is capable both on- and off-road. 

Pros & Cons

  • Opulent interior
  • Adept off road
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • Small cargo area

2014 Toyota Land Cruiser Overview

Is the 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser a Good Used SUV?

The 2014 Land Cruiser is great for those who desire off-road prowess and on-road comfort in the same vehicle. This luxury large SUV has great passing power from its muscular V8 engine, along with a refined cabin and a strong reliability rating. This winning combination is why we named the Land Cruiser our 2014 Best Luxury Large SUV for Families. Still, some competitors have more cargo space.

Used 2014 Land Cruiser Performance and Interior

The 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser’s powertrain consists of a 381-horsepower V8 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. This setup delivers quick acceleration and smooth shifts, but the brakes can get grabby at slow speeds. Despite the Land Cruiser’s tight turning radius, its tall ride height can lead to unwanted body roll on sharp corners. However, its height is a benefit once you hit the trails. Great ground clearance combined with the crawl control and multi-terrain select systems help the Land Cruiser tackle unbeaten roads. This Toyota delivers 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway – a typical rating in the class.

The Land Cruiser might not have a traditional luxury badge like many of its competitors, but its interior is a prime example of refinement. There’s seating for eight on supple leather, and wood accents can be found throughout the cabin. The first- and second-row seats have sufficient space, which makes for a comfortable commute. The cramped third-row seats, on the other hand, aren’t suitable for adults.

A high seating position creates good driving visibility. In terms of cargo space, the Land Cruiser is smaller than class rivals like the long-wheelbase Lincoln Navigator. However, the split-folding third-row seats fold to both sides of the vehicle for additional cargo room, as opposed to folding into the floor. This increases cargo capacity but hinders corner visibility. There are two sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the outboard second-row seats and an upper tether on the middle seat. 

The standard navigation system has easy-to-use controls, and the heated tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel has redundant buttons for the audio system. All models include push-button start, a moonroof, power-adjustable front seats, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, four-zone climate control, a USB port, HD Radio, satellite radio, an 8-inch touch screen, a 14-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, voice recognition, and a rear-seat entertainment system.

Should I Consider Another Used Land Cruiser?

The 2014 Land Cruiser is part of a generation that started in 2008 and includes the 2018 model year. The SUV took a one-year hiatus in 2012. When it returned for the 2013 model year, all of the optional equipment was made standard. The 2014 Land Cruiser saw no major changes from the previous year, which means that choosing the 2013 model will get you similar features at a reduced price.

Which Used Toyota Land Cruiser Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser comes in only one trim. There are no optional features. In this case, that’s not a bad thing; this luxury large SUV includes navigation, a 14-speaker audio system, an 8-inch touch screen, a rear-seat entertainment system, and much more as standard.

Despite the Land Cruiser’s good reliability rating, you might consider a certified pre-owned model for added peace of mind. Toyota provides a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty on all of its certified pre-owned vehicles, and it extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. Each CPO Toyota must pass a 160-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Toyota warranty page carefully.

2014 Toyota Land Cruiser and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser or 2014 Lexus LX?

The Land Cruiser and its corporate cousin, the 2014 Lexus LX, have many similarities. To start, both SUVs are made to excel off-road as well as on the highway. They also both have powerful V8 engines and refined interiors (more so in the LX). In terms of cargo space, passenger room, and fuel economy estimates, there are miniscule differences. The LX edges out the Land Cruiser in terms of reliability, offering the highest possible score of five out of five. Both cars cost around the same price up front, but the LX’s estimated ownership costs are drastically higher. If you have to have a luxury title, go with the Lexus. Otherwise, you could save over $10,000 by choosing the similar Land Cruiser. 

Which Is Better: 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser or 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is an affordable midsize SUV with seating for five (the Land Cruiser seats eight). The Grand Cherokee doesn’t come with the Land Cruiser’s luxuries, but its interior is nicer than many rivals. Its fuel economy rating of 17/24 mpg city/highway is better than the Toyota’s, and this Jeep is a truly capable off-road vehicle that maintains composure on the pavement. Its low reliability rating could run up maintenance costs, but keep in mind that it costs less than half the price of the Land Cruiser. Nonetheless, the Land Cruiser is the better SUV overall.

Which Is Better: 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser or 2014 Land Rover Range Rover?

The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover is another luxury large SUV that can tackle rough terrain yet remain steady on paved roads. Its standard V6 engine isn’t as powerful as the Land Cruiser's V8, but some used models come with a supercharged V8 engine. While the Land Cruiser has seating for eight, the Range Rover only seats five. The Range Rover has one of the nicest interiors in its class, but it also has a complicated infotainment system, high ownership costs, and one of the lowest reliability ratings possible (2.5 out of five). Go with the Land Cruiser.
