What are some interesting features on Toyota Land Cruiser

When the Land Cruiser was first introduced 55 years ago, they were so basic that doors and a top were optional. Today’s Land Cruiser remains true to its roots with the ability to tackle the toughest terrain imaginable.

2013 Land Cruiser

Yet with upgrades for 2013, its roster of luxury, safety and new technology features is now so complete that it comes in a single, fully loaded model without options.

The changes began on the outside where the Land Cruiser receives a dynamic new grill, high-tech headlamps with HID low beams and LED accent lighting, redesigned bumpers, new side mirrors, and chrome side molding, sporty 18 inch alloy wheels, and redesigned taillights.

Enhanced technologies contribute to this Land Cruiser’s on and offroad driving capabilities including Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with pre-collision system, five speed crawl control with offroad turn assist, and multi-terrain select. Inside, the cabin includes a choice of sandstone and black interiors, higher gloss wood-like grain trim, and brighter silver highlights.

Upgraded instrumentation includes a new full color multi-information display, an eco driving indicator light and zone display to help the driver monitor their MPG, and updated meter cluster lighting for easier viewing day or night.

Promoting four-season comfort, the new perforated leather-trimmed front seats are heated and ventilated. Even the steering wheel gets a heater in this new Land Cruiser.

A new multi-terrain monitor uses cameras mounted outside the vehicle to display to the driver a view of what the camera detects near the front, sides, or rear during very low speed offroad driving.

The previously optional premium HDD navigation system with JBL audio is now standard, gaining Entune and a larger eight inch screen.

An additional 12 volt power outlet is added to the rear of the center console for increased versatility in powering accessories.

All the features in the formally optional upgrade package are now Land Cruiser standards including rear seat DVD entertainment system, rain sensing windshield wipers, center console cooler box, headlamp cleaners, leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift lever, and heated second row seats.
