The Toyota Land Cruiser has long been the brand's ultimate luxury SUV, and for 2016, they hope to improves yet again.

The new model boasts a new exterior and interior design, along with new safety technology, a major drivetrain upgrade and enhanced multimedia features.

First off, it has a whole new look, with updates to the bumper, grille, headlights, and integrated Land Cruiser logo. Under the hood lies a 381-horsepower V8, paired wity Toyota's first 8-speed automatic transmission, helping enhance acceleration.

It also has a new look from behind, as well, thanks to new taillights with light-tube design and LED brake lights, a new full-width chrome molding and a new bumper. A chrome body side molding embossed with the Land Cruiser logo and new-design 18-inch alloy wheels accentuate the Land Cruiser’s muscular profile.

Inside, it sports seating for eight, as well as semi-aniline perforated leather in the customer's choice of black or new Terra (brown). The black interior and Terra interiors are accented by Deep Wood trim, while high-quality materials complement a center console redesign.

The Land Cruiser's Entune head unit is upgraded, adding Siri® Eyes Free mode and other performance enhancements.
