What's New for the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser?

Historically, the Land Cruiser has been one of the iconic and beloved Toyota vehicles. This utilitarian vehicle is the largest that Toyota offers, and it strikes a fine balance between luxurious and rugged. The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is quite similar to the 2017 model; however, it has been nicely updated to suit the increasingly demanding needs of tech-savvy drivers and passengers. This year's model is a fully loaded Land Cruiser with the option to tack on an entertainment system for backseat passengers.
