The 2021 Land Cruiser is an iconic vehicle, but can it really go toe-to-toe with the high-tech, tried-and-tested 2022 Range Rover? The Land Cruiser is being retired at the end of this model-year, so now might be your last chance to compare the Range Rover vs. Land Cruiser—but don’t worry. The new Range Rover is here to stay, and we’ll show you why it’s the preferred choice for Rumson’s enthusiasts.
The Land Cruiser is offered with just one engine, a 5.7L V8 that churns out 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. That’s not a bad option, but it doesn’t come close to matching the high-end options on the Range Rover. On this model, you’ll have numerous powertrains to consider:

New Range Rover SUVs start at $92,000 MSRP, and that makes them a little bit more expensive than new Toyota Land Cruiser models. However, since the Land Cruiser is being discontinued in the U.S., potential buyers can expect its $85,665 MSRP price tag to grow significantly higher over the next few months.
With that said, there are actually plenty of reasons to choose the more luxurious Range Rover! Compared to the Land Cruiser, only the Range Rover offers the following features as standard:
What’s more, the Range Rover gives you a lot of room to move up if you’re looking for even more luxurious amenities. For now, it’s enough to point out that only the Range Rover offers an optional Long Wheelbase, which dramatically expands your rear legroom and your available cargo space while providing an even smoother ride.
So, Range Rover or Land Cruiser? For many drivers, the question comes down to one key point of comparison: off-road driving. The Land Cruiser has earned its stripes, but modern adventurers deserve a vehicle that’s looking toward the future—not the past.
Although both models offer impressive four-wheel drive capability and come equipped with all the gear you’ll need to protect your investment on the trail, only the Range Rover offers these features:
Just to underscore the difference, note that the Range Rover offers up to 11.7 inches of ground clearance when air suspension is engaged! The Land Cruiser lags behind with just 8.9 inches of ground clearance at maximum.
