Range Rover

Land Cruiser


At first glance, the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover and the 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser might seem like similar vehicles. Both offer generous performance in the base trim as well as exciting off-road capability. However, once you begin to take a closer look, some big differences begin to emerge. As a two-row SUV, the Range Rover offers comfortable seating and more confident handling than the larger three-row Land Cruiser. Read on to find out more differences between these two models.

Available Diesel Performance


If you decide to purchase the 2017 Range Rover, you have the choice between several engines, including a 3.0L V6 diesel model. With standard four-wheel drive and an automatic eight-speed transmission, this engine offers excellent fuel economy at 22 mpg city/28 mpg highway/25 mpg combined. In terms of power output, it puts out 254 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. However, if you'd like to add diesel capability to the Land Cruiser, you're out of luck. It's only offered with a standard gas V8 engine, which reaches a maximum fuel economy of 13 mpg city/18 mpg highway/15 mpg combined.

Supercharged V8


Let's take a look at the highest performance model available in each of these SUVs:

  • The line leading Range Rover SVAutobiography DYNAMIC features a 5.0L Supercharged V8 engine that gets 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque.

  • The Land Cruiser can only be equipped with one engine: a 5.7L V8 that puts out 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque.

If you're planning on taking your SUV to an off-road park outside of Schaumburg, IL, you'll appreciate that upgraded level of power.

Modern Features


One hallmark of Land Rover vehicles is their high level of luxury, and the Range Rover continues that tradition. The following available features can be found throughout the model line:

  • Head-Up Display

  • 29-Speaker Meridian Surround Sound System

  • Rear Executive Class Seats

  • Automatic Access Height

Sadly, none of these can be equipped in the Land Cruiser. For a higher class of luxury, there's only one real option.
