2002 Toyota Land Cruiser Review

A great all-around SUV, but expect to pay for it.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser offers something for everyone. It proves large enough to haul the family and all the associated gear. It offers the power you need and want to take you over rough areas or just to cruise down to the mall, and you feel comfortable along the way. Plus, it's a Toyota. The Land Cruiser has it all, including a pretty big price tag. For some it seems worth every penny.

What's New

The 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser remains unchanged for this year model.

Exterior

The 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser offers a great looking ride with 16-inch silver alloy wheels and colored front and rear bumpers along with colored body side moldings. It sports a chrome grille. The Land Cruiser measures 192.5 inches long and rides on a 112.2-inch wheelbase. It stretches 76.4 inches wide and 73.2 inches tall. The cargo area can be accessed through a window that flips up and a tailgate that drops down. Standard features include a power sunroof.

Interior

In the past, seating for five came standard but the 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser gets the formerly optional third-row seat as standard equipment giving it room for eight. Children feel more comfortable in the third seat than adults, but everyone enjoys comfort in the versatile and roomy interior. The split rear seat folds outward to increase cargo area. Total cargo volume reaches 91 cubic feet. Leather upholstery comes standard and gives it a luxurious feel. Additional standard features include automatic climate control, a six-disc CD changer, and remote keyless entry.

Performance & Handling

The Land Cruiser takes you anywhere you want to go whether it has a road or not. Fortunately the 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser can take you down to the local shopping mall in relative comfort as well, thanks to the Cruiser's long wheelbase which gives it a supple ride. Steering feels well-balanced and weighted for the heaviness of the SUV. The Land Cruiser gets its power from a 4.7-liter V-8 that cranks out 230 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. Acceleration and passing maneuvers seem like a breeze.

Safety

In addition to standard safety features, the 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser comes equipped with anti-lock brakes and Vehicle Skid Control (VSC). VSC serves as electronic stability system that applies brakes to the individual tire as needed.
