Throughout its 60-year existence, the Land Cruiser has remained one of the most impressive off-roaders money can buy. What has changed, however, is the amount of money needed. The current model costs upward of $69,000 and the upcoming 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser will cost about -- you should probably sit down -- another $9000. As a result, including the $810 destination fee, the 2013 Land Cruiser will start at $78,765.

Look very, very closely this car gallery. This is the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser, which, though not immediately apparent, is different than the 2012 model. How, exactly? The updated SUV has new features like LED running lamps up front, a revised taillamp design and some new wheel options. Inside, there's a brand new hard drive-based navigation system complete with Toyota's fancy new Entune infotainment system.

A six-speed automatic with sequential shift mode sends drive to all four wheels via a lightweight and compact transfer case that provides full-time four-wheel drive with a low-range 2.618:1 ratio. The system uses a Torsen limited-slip locking center differential to distribute power 40:60 front-to-rear, directing more power to the wheels with the best grip should slippage occur.
Exterior changes include revised headlights, a new grille, LED accenting, and new underbody panels to help protect the drivetrain when traversing rocky terrain.

Inside, there are a host of features that were formerly available as options now as standard including a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a center-console cooler box, headlamp cleaners, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, a multi-information display with voice activation and Bluetooth connectivity, heated second-row seats, a JBL speaker system, and finally the land cruiser 2013 is the best choise.
