The 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser is though to be very special because it represents the 50th anniversary of the Toyota. This 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser is impressive, huge and big. It has the same engine found in the Tundra and the engine is 5.7-liter V8-powered which can produce 381 horsepower. The 6 speed automatic transmission and the estimated fuel economy is 13 mpg city, 18 mpg highway, 15 mpg combined.
The 2008 Land Cruiser weighs 5, 690 pounds, with a base price of $63, 200. This 4 door Land Cruise gave me very nice impression of a reliable, secure and durable vehicle from Toyota. The new 2008 Land Cruiser available in eight different colours and which are Silver Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Salsa Red Pearl, Sonora Gold Pear (I loved this colour), Amazon Green Metallic, Pacific Blue Metallic, Super White and Black.
The exterior is impressive due to the 18-inch, 5-spoke aluminium alloy wheels. Green-tinted glass with UV reduction. Integrated fog lamps. Aerodynamic multi-reflector halogen headlamps with Daytime Running Lights and auto on/off features. Colour-coordinated front and rear bumpers making the exterior even more and high class.
I find interior equally impressive due to Power tilt steering wheel which is telescopic and leather-wrapped. The Steering wheel is integrated with audio and multi-functions display control system. Other important features are voice-activated navigation system, Cruise control(One of my favourite feature), Voice-activated DVD navigation system, heated leather-trimmed seats with armrests ( both are adjustable). 10 airbags. The premium audio system with an in-dash six-CD/DVD changer and 14 speakers, anti-theft security system, a telephone, power moon roof. Auto-dimming electro chromic rear-view mirror etc. I find the driving seat very comfortable. I was able to see the out side view very clearly.
When comes to security the 2008 Toyota Land Cruiser is also perfect with 10 airbags (the most airbags found in any Toyota vehicle) These include driver and front passenger dual-stage advanced airbags and also their knee airbags. Apart from air bags there are other important security systems like Vehicle Stability Control(helpful on snow and slippery surfaces), the STAR safety system (a hands free 24 hrs emergency help service), anti-lock braking system, Brake Assist (BA), a direct tire pressure monitor system, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Active Traction Control, and Vehicle Stability Control system are also added.
I like all of its features specially CRAWL Control security system. The CRAWL Control is an added security system that controls the engine, its speed and the out put.
Though this new 2008 Land Cruiser is 12.4% more expensive than previous editions but this 2008 Land Cruiser is also more powerful and with added features when compared with previous models. This new vehicles is equipped with more safety features and modern technologies. The Toyota products have always been durable, comfortable and reliable.
Any body would love to own the SUV 2008. The exterior and interior is equally out standing. The Vehicle is powerful, strong and beautiful. From light system to its security system the Land Cruiser is just perfect.
