The 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser has been king of the off-road since 1957, when it was introduced as a hard-core mudder that started a revolution in adventurous driving. It has evolved into one of the most luxurious SUVs on the road, without sacrificing its legendary off-road prowess. This year’s edition has tons of innovations you can see, like the completely re-vamped exterior, and scores of improvements you can’t see, like multiple upgrades to the drivetrain. Whatever you’re seeking in a full-size SUV, Land Cruiser has it in spades. Luxury cabin? Check. Redesigned front end with striking LED lights and chrome side moldings? Check. Amazing performance on and off the road? Check, check, check! Here at Parks Toyota of Deland, FL, we’ve been selling and servicing Land Cruisers for longer than anyone can remember. We were the first dealership in the area to offer a large selection of Land Cruisers, and many off-road enthusiasts visit us regularly at 1701 South Woodland Boulevard in Deland, close to Interstate 4, just to see the yearly updates to the Land Cruiser. They won’t be disappointed this year because the 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser is packed with surprises.
You’ll always travel in style in the all-new Land Cruiser. Take, for example, the awesome leather-trimmed steering wheel. It is not only ergonomically designed and heated, it also houses all the controls for the audio system, Bluetooth® and Multi-Information Display screen. Talk about having the world at your fingertips! Even the dashboard is completely overhauled, with sleek new upgraded knobs and dials, plus an easy-to-use high-resolution touch screen. When it comes to cabin comfort, you can’t beat the incredible four-zone automatic climate control system that gives separate controls to the driver, front passenger, and each of the back seat occupants. This unprecedented innovation uses 28 separate vents distributed throughout the cabin. Finally, the rear-seat entertainment system gives you twin 11.6-inch DVD screens, so you’ll never hear, “Are we there yet?” from the peanut gallery.
The Double Overhead Cam 32-valve monstrous V8 engine puts out 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque, but that’s just the beginning. You also get such cutting-edge performance boosters as Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing and an Acoustic Control Induction System to increase the rpm range and keep you far ahead of the crowd. When you take the wheel, you’ll feel more like a Lear jet pilot than an SUV driver. The 8-speed automatic transmission (ECT-i) is electronically controlled with a mind of its own to match shift logic to throttle input and engine speed – and all you have to do is press your foot down on the accelerator. For more control, the Land Cruiser has a sequential shift mode to let you shift the gears manually. Trust its new rigid construction and reinforced undercarriage skid plates to smooth out the road for you and yours.
You can get a bird’s eye view of your Land Cruiser and the surrounding terrain with the Multi Terrain Monitor that shows you what’s going on in front of, behind, and beside your vehicle. Just press a button on the 9-inch navigation screen to bring up the desired view. It cuts down your fear of the unknown and lets you drive off-road with confidence. And the high-performance Torsen limited-slip center differential, which automatically sends more power to the axle with the most traction, isn’t just for off-road adventures. Customers tell us the Torsen advantage is a blessing for additional grip on city streets and highways, although the locking feature is best saved for uneven ground. When you see a particularly rough patch of road ahead, activate the Land Cruiser’s Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System. It automatically disconnects the sway bar for improved wheel grip. A brand new Multi-terrain Select function ingeniously controls wheelspin and traction when you choose from five different road surfaces:
