The 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser is quite the versatile full-size SUV with a luxurious interior, a redesigned/modernized exterior, three rows of seating, and full-time 4WD. The interior of the 2008 Land Cruiser has features that luxury vehicles have made necessities, like the cooler in the center console and a rear entertainment system.
Behind the scenes, the Toyota Land Cruiser sports a 5.7-liter V8 that produces 381 horsepower @ 5,600 rpm and 401 lb-ft of torque @ 3,600 rpm. For the off-road enthusiasts, the Land Cruiser has the new Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) that allows the sway bars to free themselves from the vehicle via a hydraulic system. KDSS adjusts stabilizer bar effects based on driving conditions and when off-roading, it enhances suspension articulation. The crawl control system, activated with an on/off switch, also helps when going downhill or uphill over rocky or rough terrain. Worried about rolling over while off-roading? Don’t be. The Land Cruiser’s engineers took safety seriously. Toyota included supplemental restraint systems like active headrests and roll-sensing side curtain airbags (for a total of 10 airbags in the vehicle).
