The New 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser
An impressive design
This is the ultimate expression of luxury and capability. The 2021 Land Cruiser makes an impression wherever it goes with its legendary off-road prowess and bold exterior details. A stylish front end, LED lighting and chrome side moldings with the Land Cruiser logo help give this SUV an unmistakable presence. So whether you're traversing uncharted terrain or enjoying a night on the town, you can rest assured that you'll always arrive in style.
Land Cruiser features powerful lighting up front to help light your way. The headlights utilize LED elements for both the low and high beams, giving you bright, efficient light when you need it. And when the weather turns sour, integrated LED fog lights help you see and be seen.
When you're a legend, it's okay to show off a little. Up front, the chrome grille blends into the LED headlights for added sophistication. A sculpted hood hints at the powerful V8 underneath, and its front fenders show that this SUV is ready to flex its muscle.
Energy-efficient LED taillights last long, shine bright and help complete Land Cruiser's distinctive look.
Leather-trimmed, heated steering wheel
Land Cruiser's leather-trimmed steering wheel is not only heated, it features controls for the audio system, Multi-Information Display and Bluetooth® wireless technology.
Ventilated and heated seats
Observe your surroundings from the comfort of leather-trimmed, multi-stage heated and ventilated front seats. The second-row seats also feature multi-stage heating, so your passengers won't be left in the cold.
Land Cruiser's dashboard is ready to help you take command of your next journey. A sleek design incorporates a large, high-resolution touchscreen display and intuitive controls. And it all comes finished with the exceptional quality you have come to expect from Land Cruiser.
Four-zone automatic climate control
You've never experienced climate control like this. The driver, front passenger and two second-row passengers can control their own environments with the help of 28 vents located throughout the cabin. On extremely cold days, a Positive Temperature Coefficient heater warms air instantly by passing it over an electrically heated ceramic element.
Seating for up to eight
Expeditions often require the assistance of an entire crew. Fortunately, standard Land Cruiser’s spacious cabin offers seating for up to eight. And everyone can ride in comfort, thanks to multi-stage heated and ventilated front seats, a multi-stage heated 40/20/40 split second-row seat with center armrest, and an available 50/50 split third-row seat.
With power comes confidence. Land Cruiser's Double Overhead Cam (DOHC) 32-valve V8 develops 381 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. of torque, but that's only part of the story. Technologies such as Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) and an Acoustic Control Induction System (ACIS) help maximize usable power throughout the rpm range.
8-speed automatic transmission
Land Cruiser's 8-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i) is not your average transmission. It adjusts shift logic depending on throttle input, vehicle speed and incline for efficient power delivery in a variety of conditions. It also features a sequential shift mode so you can select the gears manually if desired.
True to its off-road heritage, Land Cruiser is built on a rugged 10-member high-tensile steel ladder frame for reduced flex and enhanced durability.
Land Cruiser rides on an independent double-wishbone suspension with coil springs and stabilizer bar up front, and a 4-link rear suspension with coil springs, stabilizer bar and semi-floating axle in the rear. It's a proven system that has stood the test of time.
Land Cruiser's undercarriage is equipped with reinforced skid plates to protect crucial areas like the front suspension, radiator, fuel tank and transfer case.
14 JBL® speakers
We've got you surrounded—in sound, that is. Land Cruiser's standard 14-speaker JBL Synthesis® audio system includes an 8-in. subwoofer and a 605-watt amplifier for amazing clarity and dynamic range.
Land Cruiser’s Premium JBL® Audio with Integrated Navigation gives you a high-end entertainment experience. Its high-resolution 9-in. touchscreen display lets you access the integrated navigation system, your music and more. A USB media port gives you even more ways to add entertainment to every drive. And with 14 JBL Synthesis® speakers, including a subwoofer and amplifier, it will all sound amazing too.
SiriusXM® with 3-month All Access trial subscription
SiriusXM® is playing what you want to hear. Every Land Cruiser comes with a SiriusXM® 3-month All Access trial subscription, so you can try the widest variety of entertainment anywhere. Just open the app and start listening. Choose from over 200 channels, including ad-free music, plus sports, news, talk, comedy and more. Screen depiction accurate at time of posting.
The 4.2-in. color Multi-Information Display (MID) helps you keep an eye on the information you want. Customize it to show your mpg, inclinometer, individual tire pressure, turn-by-turn directions and more. And when paired with your compatible phone, it can even display your text messages.
Rear-seat DVD entertainment system
Rear-seat passengers can personalize their entertainment options with the available rear-seat DVD entertainment system. The latest movies, video games and more can be enjoyed on the two 11.6-in. screens placed behind the driver and front passenger seats. So no matter where your expedition takes you, the comforts of home can come along for the ride.
Demanding off-road situations often make you wish you could check your immediate surroundings for potential trouble. With the Multi-Terrain Monitor (MTM), you can. Simply press a button to display front, rear and side camera views on the 9-in. navigation screen.
Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System
The Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) helps keep optimal traction, no matter how uneven the terrain is. When activated, KDSS automatically disconnects the sway bar and adjusts the suspension system for better wheel articulation. So when the road ahead looks challenging, Land Cruiser is ready to help you conquer it with ease.
Torsen® limited-slip differential
On road or off, you can never have too much grip. Land Cruiser's Torsen® limited-slip center differential is engineered to automatically send more power to the wheel or axle with the most traction, and is equipped with a locking feature so you can manually select 50/50 front/rear power distribution in extremely traction-limited situations.
Challenging terrain requires a different driving strategy. Multi-Terrain Select (MTS) is an innovative system that helps control wheelspin and brake lockup to optimize driving performance over five of the most common off-road surfaces: Rock, Rock & Dirt, Mogul, Loose Rock and Mud & Sand.
Crawl Control with Off-road Turn Assist
When your off-road travels get tough, Crawl Control (CRAWL) is an advanced system that automatically modulates the throttle and brakes on five low-speed settings. Off-road Turn Assist allows for a tighter turning radius in Crawl Control mode in order to navigate turns when off-road.
Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P)
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) is designed to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in certain situations. Using both a camera and radar, PCS w/PD can provide an audio/visual alert to warn you of a possible collision under certain circumstances. If you don’t react, the system is designed to automatically brake.
Standard Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Intended for highway use, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) lets you drive at a preset speed. DRCC is designed to function at speeds of 25-110 mph and uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance control, helping maintain a preset distance from the vehicle ahead of you.
Standard Lane Departure Alert
By detecting visible white/yellow lane markings at speeds above 32 mph, Lane Departure Alert (LDA) is designed to issue an audio/visual alert if an inadvertent lane departure is detected.
Standard Automatic High Beams
The Automatic High Beams (AHB) safety system is designed to help you see more clearly at night at speeds above 25 mph. The AHB system can detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically toggles between high and low beams accordingly.
Outfitted to overcome more of what the trails throw at you. Removing the running boards and lower chrome body moldings found on standard Land Cruiser not only gives Heritage Edition a clean look, but also helps it avoid damage when crawling over obstacles.
Darkened chrome surrounds
Heritage Edition cleans up nicely. Darkened chrome surrounds and side mirrors with darkened chrome details give Heritage Edition a polished look up close. And after the sun goes down, fog lights with dark chrome surrounds and darkened headlight housings add to its sophisticated stare.
Land Cruiser Heritage Edition's signature badging takes inspiration from the original FJ40 and is used to pay homage to the decades of legends that came before it.
18-in. bronze BBS®
Tough and lightweight, bronze BBS® 18-in. forged-aluminum alloy wheels add to Heritage Edition's unmistakable presence.
Bronze contrast stitching
See and feel the dedication to every detail. The bronze theme continues inside and highlights Heritage Edition's uniqueness with bronze contrast stitching used on the steering wheel, door trim, center stack, console and leather-trimmed seats.
Inside, luxury and capability effortlessly blend together. Heritage Edition's five-passenger seating reveals an interior filled with purpose. From authentic materials that raise its premium feel to a larger cargo space that lets you bring more of what you need.
82.8 cu. ft. of cargo capacity
With standard Land Cruiser’s third- and second-row seats folded, you’ll be greeted by a cavernous 82.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity. So the next time you’re wondering if that super-size, bargain-price flat-screen will fit, the answer is probably yes.
Center console cooler box
Leave the ice chest at home—Land Cruiser's available center console features a cooler box that can easily accommodate beverages and snacks.
Let's open up to the world. Land Cruiser's power moonroof lets you enjoy everything from a cool breeze to a breathtaking view of the night sky.
40/20/40 split rear seat
Adventures, and your gear, don't come in one size. That's why Land Cruiser features a 40/20/40 split second-row seat. When upright, it helps carry three passengers in comfort. The ends also slide forward for convenient access to the available third-row seats. And all three sections easily fold down, giving you a vast and customizable cargo space.
Foldaway third-row seats
Up, up and away. On the standard model, Land Cruiser's 50/50 split rear seats not only fold flat, they also fold away against the interior walls of the vehicle to create a level load floor.
Land Cruiser comes standard with ten airbags, including driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, second-row outboard seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags and all-row Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags (RSCA).
Star Safety System™
Land Cruiser comes standard with the Star Safety System™, a suite of six advanced safety features that includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Active Traction Control (A-TRAC), Multi-Terrain 4-wheel Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology (SST).
Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA)
When Land Cruiser's Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) detects a vehicle, it illuminates a warning indicator on the appropriate sideview mirror to help you know when it's safe to change lanes. And when you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) provides an audible indicator to warn you of approaching vehicles.
Side-impact door beams
To help provide extra occupant protection when the vehicle is struck from the side, steel beams are located inside all doors, and are designed to absorb energy and reduce the chance of intrusion into the cabin.
With Safety Connect® emergency assistance is always within your reach. Via Toyota's 24/7 call center, Safety Connect® offers subscribers helpful features such as Emergency Roadside Assistance, Stolen Vehicle Locator and Automatic Collision Notification.
Active front headrests
In certain lower-speed, rear-end collisions, a bracket and cable system in the lower region of the front seats triggers the upward movement of the active front headrests to help position them toward the back of the occupants’ heads.
