2008 Land Cruiser Overview

It's unusual to find SUVs in today's marketplace that are still engineered for more than ordinary use.The all-new 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser is one of those few remaining that are capable in more than one venue.

The Land Cruiser is designed to transport people and gear over any kind of road or primitive trail, in any kind of weather, with speed, comfort and security.It can tow up to 8500 pounds with the right equipment.It offers integrated comfort and convenience features to rival luxury cars in this price range.

The 2008 Land Cruiser looks pretty much the same as the previous Land Cruiser, but make no mistake: it has been completely re-engineered from the frame up.Refinements include a suite of safety features, state-of-the-art electronics, more power with better mileage, and innovative engineering advancements that permit outstanding performance in contrasting circumstances.

More than just all-weather, the Land Cruiser offers legitimate all-terrain capability.Among the innovations making this possible is a brilliantly designed suspension that enhances performance on irregular terrain, yet does not compromise cornering or braking on paved roads.

The Land Cruiser's high-utility, capability-driven design comes at a price.Building multiple-use potential into a single vehicle requires more expensive materials, extensive developmental testing, and more engineering innovation.That makes the Land Cruiser the vehicle of choice for well-heeled customers who have a cabin in the woods, an adventurous vacation routine, or perhaps a whole lot of highway and dirt road between the family home and a camping trip.For their investment, Land Cruiser owners enjoy an exceptionally secure, comfortable SUV that can make extreme use seem routine.

Then there is the matter of quality.All Land Cruisers are built in small volumes in Japan.Production is shared between the Yoshiwara plant, in Aichi, Japan, (now manufacturing Prius, LX470 and 4Runner) and Toyota's vaunted Tahara plant, which mostly manufactures Lexus vehicles.These are Toyota's flagship manufacturing facilities.Standards at the Tahara plant, in particular, have been described in American newspapers as untouchable, approaching fewer than 10 defects per 1 million parts.

As a result, the Land Cruiser's brick outhouse reputation for durability and long-term value is likely to be continued.It is normal for four-wheel-drive vehicles to require unscheduled repairs due to greater complexity, and exposure to dust, water, and vibration.However, in the case of the Land Cruiser, we would be surprised to encounter many significant problems beyond long-term maintenance.

Because of its iconic exterior design, Land Cruisers never seem to look dated or go out of style.Used Land Cruisers are scarce and command high prices.
