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.

Powertrain Options: Range Rover vs. Land Cruiser

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:

  • 3.0L P360 i6 MHEV with 355 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L P400 i6 MHEV with 400 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.0L V8 GAS engine with 518 hp and 461 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.0L V8 GAS engine with 557 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque

Almost all of the Range Rover engine options offer more power than you can get in the Land Cruiser, and we think that’s something to celebrate. What’s more, if you do like the Range Rover SUV’s base-level engine, you’ll be rewarded with superior fuel economy:

  • Range Rover (with base engine/4WD): 18 mpg city and 23 mpg highway
  • Land Cruiser (with base engine/4WD): 13 mpg city and 17 mpg highway

Price & Luxury: Range Rover vs. Land Cruiser

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:

  • Panoramic roof
  • Remote start
  • Apple CarPlay™
  • Android Auto™
  • Wi-Fi™ hotspot integration
  • Air suspension

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.

Off-Road Driving: Range Rover or Land Cruiser?

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:

  • Terrain Response® / Terrain Response® 2
  • Hill Descent Control (HDC®)
  • All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC)
  • Active Locking Rear Differential
  • And more!

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.
