2015 Land Cruiser, body & redesign
2015 Land Cruiser is a dream SUV for many, although the US $80K machine is not cheap to buy, it is cheaper to maintain that most other SUVs of it’s class. 2015 Land Cruiser underpinnings are a strong chassis and a very efficient suspension system that makes the vehicle glide over dirt roads as if they were paved. The all around airbags, star safety system and a great engine keeps it from falling apart over years of use. The sales have been around 2000 units per year in the US yet many old and new examples can be seen vouching for it’s durability. There are aftermarket options to remove the spare wheel and install an automatic fuel tank to extend it’s range. Some people even carry the wheel above, behind or sideways for safaris in Africa or elsewhere. The durable body is built to endure and is quite large for long trips. Notable features include the terrain Select system which helps control wheelspin and brake lockup giving the selectable choices like Rock, Rock & Dirt, Mogul, Loose Rock, and Mud/Sand. There are a slew of features that come as standard now owing to a big price tag, and big expectations from the vehicle. The elite buyer but expects features like pushbutton start system, HID headlamps and beam level adjustment, a power moonroof/sunroof, heated front and rear seats, back seat DVD system, bluetooth, rearview camera with parking sensors, navigation system, HD radio and Entune system.
2015 Land Cruiser interior and luxury
2015 Land Cruiser is a cruise ship on wheels, and I mean it! Sitting inside the large spaces makes you wonder if any other vehicle feels so nice inside, the ride is very smooth for an SUV and even a large bus seems less comforting. The multi zone climate control system and very well thought out seating support system makes you feel like home. Although there is no headrest mounted screen as standard, the rear roof mounted DVD screen is. The eight passenger seating cabin also holds 81.7 cu. ft cargo space with 12 cup holders and a 14 speaker system by JBL. These features are present in the 2014 and we expect them in the new one as well.The 2015 Land Cruiser multi-stage heated and ventilated front seats, a multi-stage heated 40/20/40 split heated second-row seat with center armrest, and a 50/50 split third-row seat make you as comfortable as it can get. You are also protected by the Star Safety System, a suite of six safety systems that includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Active Traction Control (A-TRAC), Multi-terrain 4-wheel ABS, Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist and Smart Stop Technology.

The engine is mated to a 6-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i); sequential shift mode and uphill/downhill shift logic.
