For the 2016 model year, the Toyota Land Cruiser gets an impressively new powerful engine. It features a 5.7-liter DOHC V* that features Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) and that generates 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque at 3,600 rpm. It’s earning rave reviews as it reaches 90 percent of peak torque at just 2,200 rpm, which gives it a powerful response in any driving situation and allows for great towing capability. It comes paired to a new eight-speed automatic transmission that also has a manual option to give more driver control in tough situations. When it’s equipped with the Trailer Towing Package, it can pull a trailer of up to 8,500 pounds.

In addition to the new powertrain, it features a long list of new driver assistance and cabin technologies that drivers are sure to appreciate. Safety features include those systems that are designed to prevent or mitigate collisions. The Toyota Safety Sense-P system includes blind spot monitoring, frontal collision avoidance, frontal collision mitigation, lane departure alert, auto high beams, and dynamic radar cruise control. It also features a 14-speaker JBL sound system and a 9-inch touchscreen that comes paired to the Toyota brand’s Entune infotainment system.
