Lately I’ve been getting more into off-roading and I’m thinking about upgrading to a different, more capable, Land Cruiser. What’s the best Toyota Land Cruiser for off-roading?

It’s no secret that the Toyota Land Cruiser is an off-road icon, and if you’re serious about hitting the backroads, a Land Cruiser is the way to go. In fact, many drivers rate the Land Cruiser as the best off-road SUV.
With low-end torque, any Cruiser will move confidently up and down inclines, and any Land Cruiser owner can speak to the vehicle’s reliability, making it the perfect vehicle to have in harsh, off-road conditions.
So which Land Cruiser is the best?
With a 4.5-liter I6 engine, four-wheel drive, and a number of off-road options, the 80 Series Land Cruiser is a top-notch off-road machine. Other features built for the uneven terrain of an off-road excursion include front and rear differential lockers, a solid front axle, and a booming aftermarket community for all your accessory needs. With the 80 Series, rugged off-road ability is the name of the game.
If you’re in the market for off-road luxury, however, the 100 Series Land Cruiser may just do the trick. While more expensive, this series offers excellent stability and traction control, along with more amenities and a more powerful engine.
Any Land Cruiser model will perform like a dream off-road, but the model you decide to go with will depend on your preferences for luxurious features, durability, and vehicle age. And keep in mind that your Land Cruiser insurance costs will increase the more luxury features you add.
