#8 - Toyota Land Cruiser

The Toyota Land Cruiser makes it into the final round of the search for the true off-roader.

by Steve

TOYOTA LAND CRUISER — The name Land Cruiser is well known in off-road enthusiast circles because of the original Land Cruiser’s ability for going anywhere and doing anything.

The evolution of the Land Cruiser brought about the bigger, roomier and more luxurious Land Cruiser that we know today. Is it still capable of being an Ultimate Off-roader? Yes.

It is sold in over 120 countries where they don’t use it like we do here. The Land Cruiser still holds on to its rich heritage of 4WD capability.
