Pros & Cons

  • Muscular V8 engine
  • Composed handling and comfortable ride
  • Terrific off-road capabilities
  • Poor gas mileage
  • Side-folding third-row seats impede cargo space

Is the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser a Good Used SUV?

Yes, the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser is a good used luxury large SUV. It has a strong engine and a smooth, composed ride on paved roads, as well as plenty of trail-ready features that make it an excellent off-roader. It also offers a good array of features and a good predicted reliability rating.

This Toyota isn't perfect, however. The cabin is well-built, but it's not as luxurious as those of classmates, and it lacks popular features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Several rivals also best it when it comes to fuel economy and cargo space. If you want more storage room and a swankier interior, you might want to consider competitors like the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS or the 2019 Lincoln Navigator.

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.

2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser or 2019 Cadillac Escalade?

The 2019 Cadillac Escalade has one of the stronger engines in the luxury large SUV class, putting out about 40 more horsepower than the Land Cruiser’s. The Cadillac also has more total cargo space than the Toyota. While the Land Cruiser has just under 82 cubic feet of cargo space, the standard Escalade has about 95 cubic feet, and the long-wheelbase Escalade ESV has about 120. The Escalade gets better fuel economy as well, though only by about 2 mpg. While some buyers will appreciate the Cadillac’s extra room and power, the Toyota is the better vehicle overall. It offers a softer ride, an easier-to-use infotainment system, and a significantly better predicted reliability rating.

Which Is Better: 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser or 2019 Lexus LX?

The 2019 Lexus LX and Toyota Land Cruiser are corporate siblings with much in common. Both boast strong V8 engines, off-road prowess, good predicted reliability ratings, and loads of features. The LX has a more upscale cabin, however, with first-rate materials and handsome styling. That said, the Land Cruiser’s smoother, more composed ride and its simpler infotainment system make it the better vehicle for everyday use.

The Multi-Terrain Select system allows you to adjust the suspension to tackle various terrain such as rock, mud, and sand. It also comes with a multi-terrain monitor that lets you see beneath the car, helping you navigate obstacles like rocks, bumps, and sticks.

How Many People Does the 2019 Land Cruiser Seat?

The 2019 Land Cruiser seats eight people in three rows. The front seats are comfortable, supportive, and spacious. The sliding and reclining second-row seats provide extra legroom and adjustments for rear passengers. The side-folding third row is cramped, which is true of many three-row SUVs.

The cabin is well-built and features mostly high-quality materials, but it doesn’t meet the luxury standard set by class rivals with posher styling.

Standard seating features:

  • Leather upholstery
  • 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Heated second-row seats
  • Heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Sliding and reclining second row

2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Features

The 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser is brimming with tech features that come standard. The infotainment system is easy to use, but its graphics look dull and outdated compared with those in rival systems. Additionally, the Land Cruiser doesn’t have popular smartphone integration features like Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
