Exterior Features
Toyota updates the Land Cruiser's styling for 2013. New wheels, a redesigned grille, high-intensity discharge headlights, LED running lights, restyled taillights, new side mirrors, and a Pearl White paint color are available this year.

Interior Features
Everything is standard on the 2013 Land Cruiser. That means the Land Cruiser's new navigation system, Entune multi-media system, ventilated front seats wrapped in premium perforated leather, and pre-collision seat belts are included in the base price. New Sandstone and Black interior color treatments also debut for 2013, and the Land Cruiser's cabin is dressed up with higher-quality wood paneling and additional chrome trim.

Optional Features
Toyota no longer offers factory-installed options for the Land Cruiser. However, Toyota dealers are ready to sell accessories such as towing equipment, remote engine starting, glass breakage sensor, paint protection film, wheel locks, and other items.

Under the Hood
A 381-horsepower, 5.7-liter V-8 engine generating 401 lb.-ft. of torque is standard on every 2013 Land Cruiser, powering all four wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission and capable of towing 8,500 pounds. Power is split 40% to the front wheels and 60% to the rear wheels, but distribution is variable depending on traction and vehicle settings.

The Land Cruiser is equipped with a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System that allows the driver to de-coupee the SUV's stabilizer bars for greater wheel articulation off-road. A new Multi-Terrain Select system gives the driver the ability to map drivetrain characteristics to specific terrain, while Crawl Control with Off-Road Turn Assist automatically controls the Land Cruiser's speed when placed in low-range gear and helps the SUV to negotiate tight bends. A standard Multi-Terrain Monitor system employs cameras to help the driver see what's happening near the Land Cruiser at ground level.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser are 13 mpg in the city, 18 mpg on the highway, and 15 mpg in combined driving.

Ten air bags are standard, along with 4-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist and traction and stability control systems with terrain sensing technology. Safety Connect telematics includes 1 free year of Automatic Collision Notification service, and the Land Cruiser's Dynamic Radar Cruise Control includes a Pre-Collision System with seat belts that tighten prior to an unavoidable accident.

The 2013 Land Cruiser has not been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as this overview is written.
