Land Cruiser Not-so-Quick Thoughts:
Stepping inside a Land Cruiser is akin to stepping inside a bulletproof vest. You feel isolated, you feel secure, you feel impenetrable. That’s makes the Land Cruiser so special. It’s a feeling that you can (if you need) tackle anything the road throws at you. Is it the best performing full size suv? Oh God no. The @Ford
Expedition will wipe the floor with the Land Cruiser in pretty much every category like road holding, performance, efficiency, fitting humans etc. But what that Expedition doesn’t deliver is the soul of a Land Cruiser, the history, the gravitas.
It’s pretty amazing how much I have fallen for this Land Cruiser, considering I hated the LX570 I had last year. The LX is everything the Land Cruiser isn’t. The LX (to me), is gaudy, chintzy, and ostentatious. It’s trying too hard and you can feel and see it. It’s huge grill, wheels and random chrome pieces glued everywhere along with ride, performance and just overall demeanor just left me feeling confused and frustrated.
Whereas the Land Cruiser is humble, flies under the radar, and it’s not trying to show off. It’s just doing it’s job without complaint. I know @toyotausa
sells only a few hundred of these per month and with that probably loosing money on it. But I do hope it sticks around because the Land Cruiser is heritage and it’s a love song to yesteryear. Keep on truckin’ on dear Land Cruiser. Keep on truckin’ on. Full Review coming up on @luxuryreports_
