2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Overview

Is the 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser a Good Used SUV?

The 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser is a good choice if you’re shopping for a luxury large SUV. It’s ideal for those who love going off road. It also has strong towing capabilities, numerous standard active safety features, an above-average predicted reliability rating, and some of the lowest operating cost estimates in the segment.

It’s not all good news, though. This Toyota has some of the lowest fuel economy estimates in the class. It also features a quirky third row that folds against the side walls, which limits useable cargo space and creates an uneven third-row middle seat.

Among new luxury large SUV, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS (starting at $69,550) has a base price that’s lower than the Land Cruiser’s average price. Although it doesn’t have the Land Cruiser’s off-road capabilities, other factors make it worth considering. It has one of the most refined cabins in the class. The GLS can also hold more cargo than the Land Cruiser, and it has much more legroom in the second and third rows.

If you drop down a segment, you’ll find some high-ranking new luxury midsize SUVs that are also worth considering. The 2018 BMW X5 won our 2018 Best Luxury 3-Row SUV for Families award, and it has a much lower starting price of $57,200. The redesigned 2019 Porsche Cayenne is another option, and it starts at $65,700.

What Does Toyota's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Toyota offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less and with fewer than 85,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. Toyota provides a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty on all its certified pre-owned vehicles, and it extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years from the initial sale date or 100,000 miles. Each CPO Toyota must pass a 160-point inspection. Additional benefits like a CarFax vehicle history report, towing, and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Toyota warranty page carefully.

Toyota’s CPO program is about average for an affordable carmaker, according to our research. Mazda, Hyundai, and Honda all have better programs.

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser or 2017 Land Rover Range Rover?

The two-row 2017 Land Rover Range Rover delivers the same rock-crawling capabilities as the Land Cruiser. However, the Toyota has more standard features, like a 360-degree parking camera, rear-seat entertainment screens, and the Entune App Suite that integrates your smartphone with the infotainment system. The Land Cruiser also has a higher predicted reliability rating than the Range Rover, and it costs far less because it doesn’t have the Rover’s wide range of engines and trim levels.

Which Is Better: 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser or 2017 Toyota Sequoia?

The 2017 Toyota Sequoia isn’t as luxurious or off-road-capable as the 2017 Land Cruiser. However, it’s still worth considering because it has almost 50 percent more cargo space than the Land Cruiser, and it has adult-friendly space in all three rows. While the Land Cruiser has a higher maximum towing capacity, the Sequoia can still pull 7,400 pounds when properly equipped. Although the Sequoia has a more mundane cabin than the Land Cruiser, the Sequoia is a better choice if you don’t mind sacrificing some luxury.

2017 Land Cruiser Interior

How Many People Does the 2017 Land Cruiser Seat?

The 2017 Land Cruiser seats eight people in three rows on standard leather upholstery. The front seats are very comfortable. The second row slides forward to provide more legroom for third-row passengers, or you can move it back to increase legroom for second-row riders.

The third row is difficult to reach. Also, because the seats split and fold sideways, the third-row middle passenger sits on an uneven seating surface. All models come with heated first- and second-row seats, as well as cooled front seats.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser?

In the second row, the 2017 Land Cruiser has two complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors on its outboard seats, along with a middle-seat tether anchor. The Land Cruiser is wide enough to accommodate three car seats in the second row. The lower anchors are located under leather flaps, so they’re easy to find. However, they’re too close together, so you may have to move the seat back to reach the anchors.

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Features

Standard features include a JBL audio system with 14 speakers, a 9-inch touch screen, navigation, and the Entune suite of apps that connects to your smartphone. You also get Siri Eyes Free, a dual-screen rear-seat DVD entertainment system, wireless device charging, and quad-zone automatic climate control.

The easy-to-use infotainment system has a touch screen with sharp, clear graphics. However, the system’s laggy responses can be frustrating. Fortunately, there are clearly labeled knobs that you can use as an alternative to the touch screen.

2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Dimensions

Toyota Land Cruiser Cargo Space

The 2017 Land Cruiser has a decent 16.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the third row upright, expanding to 43 cubic feet with the third row folded. The Land Cruiser has 81.7 cubic feet with both the second and third rows collapsed, which is below average for the class.

There’s a space-robbing design problem with the Land Cruiser, though. Its third row consists of two jump seats that split down the middle and fold against the cargo area wall. They hamper the loading of cargo more than a traditional flat-folding third row would.

2017 Land Cruiser Length and Weight

The 2017 Land Cruiser is 16.2 feet long. It has a curb weight of 5,815 pounds, and its gross vehicle weight rating is 7,385 pounds.

Where Was the 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser Built?

Toyota assembled the 2017 Land Cruiser in Japan.
