2002 Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
I've driven every SUVs you can name... and the Land Cruiser and its brother, the LX470, are by far the best overall. Though the LX470 cost thousands more than the Land Cruiser, it still out-sells the Toyota. My last car was a Land Rover Discovery and it was a swell looking car and all, but, it broke down on me and so I went out and purchased a Land Cruiser, and I have absolutely no regrets. Purchase one and find out for yourself if you don't believe me.
Muscular V8, full-time 4 wheel drive, off-road heritage, smooth and quiet ride thanks to the independent rear- suspension, luxurious interior, seating for 8 people.
Somehow Toyota needs to figure out how to give this thing better gas mileage. Toyota should offer second row captain's chairs. Optional cooled seats would be nice.
