Unlike many of the vehicles that automakers unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show this year, the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser hasn’t undergone any mechanical overhauls. There’s no new engine with more horsepower, the fuel efficiency is the same, and Toyota kept the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS), which allows the anti-roll bars to disengage if a driver chooses to take this luxury SUV off-roading.
What has changed, however, are the features that come with every Land Cruiser. Voice-activated navigation, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, and rain-sensing windshield wipers that used to be optional. Toyota has made those little extras standard on the 2013 model. Want to grab dinner and a movie? Toyota’s Entune multimedia system integrates apps from smartphones, including OpenTable and movietickets.com. Need to take a hands-free call? Bluetooth integration with the Land Cruiser’s JPL speaker system makes that possible.
Comfort hasn’t been overlooked in these upgrades, either. From the leather-trimmed steering wheel to the cooler in the center console, from the vented passenger seats to power outlets in the rear seating area, the 2013 Land Cruiser is built to avoid the road trip blues. You know what we mean. “He’s touching me! My iPod battery’s dead! There’s nothing to DO!” No one’s going to complain in this SUV.
