2014 TOYOTA LAND CRUISER: After being refreshed in 2013, the 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser carries over unchanged. The latest Land Cruiser demonstrates how the brand has evolved over time from a basic four-wheel-drive utility vehicle in its early years to an upscale eight-passenger sport utility vehicle (SUV) sold in 188 countries. For the ‘14 model year, Land Cruiser continues with an updated front grille, LED daytime running lights, chrome side molding, redesigned taillights and outer side mirrors, a color-keyed rear spoiler, plus, rugged, enlarged front and rear fenders. Complementing the freshened exterior, Land Cruiser receives an updated interior available in either Sandstone or Black that seats up to eight, with three-across seating in the second and third rows. The passenger-side second-row seat features a one-touch tumble mechanism for easier third-row in and out. When middle and rear seatbacks are stow away, there is 43.0 cu. ft. of cargo carrying room. New standard features include such goodies as rear-seat DVD entertainment system, center-console cooler box, Bluetooth and heated second row seats. Under the Land Cruiser hood that "flows gracefully into the grille and beltlines," is a 381 horsepower 5.7-liter V-8 DOHC engine, mated to a six-speed ECT automatic transmission with sequential shift mode. The lightweight, compact transfer case provides full-time four-wheel drive. CHICAGO AUTO SHOW FACT: The 2013 model year Toyota Land Cruiser full-size sport utility vehicle (SUV) made its North American debut on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2012 in the Toyota display at the 104th Chicago Auto Show.
