Updated Land Cruiser Sure to Please Toyota Consumers
January 6, 2012- Toyota issued a press release unveiling plans for its 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser and we have to admit, we cannot be happier with the changes. Some of the announced improvements noted by Toyota include:
• Updated Exterior Styling
• Standard Premium HDD Navigation System With Entune™ Multi-media
• New Dynamic Performance and Safety Features
• Popular Options Become Standard Equipment

The slight visual enhancements added to the Land Cruiser’s exterior include new LED running lamps on the front of the vehicle, HID low-beam headlamps and a re-done grille.
Additionally the 2013 Land Cruiser will now come with all of its popular features as standard equipment. Some of the new standard equipment on the Land Cruiser includes new driving performance features, and an array of significant safety and convenience features.
Toyota also went above and beyond for their consumers by including many of the popular features that were formerly available as optional packages, and making them standard for the 2013 model. Some of these “straight to standard” options include a back seat DVD entertainment system, a color-keyed rear spoiler, the inclusion of rain-sensing windshield wipers (which we thought were really cool), a center-console cooler box (Perfect to keep drinks cold during road trips or during park outings).
Other “straight to standard” features include headlamp cleaners, leather-trimmed steering wheel, multi-information display, voice and Bluetooth® hands-free controls and heated second row seats to keep your passengers nice and toasty.
The coolest “straight to standard” feature, in our opinion, is the 2013 Land Cruiser’s inclusion of Toyota's Premium Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Navigation with Entune multi-media system and JBL® audio.
Under the hood the 2013 Land Cruiser is not much different than previous models. Its 5.7-liter V8 engine is carried over unchanged, but with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque at its driver’s disposal, we didn’t see a need to change anything.
The 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser will include driving aids like KDSS (Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System) and Multi-Terrain Select as standard equipment, additions that will make off road fans very happy.
We are very excited to get our hands on the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser, set to release in February 2012.
