Since the Toyota Land Cruiser made its maiden voyage up Mount Fuji, it has been an off roading legend. Today, the Land Cruiser is still the top choice for four wheel adventures. It can face off a Colorado snowstorm and nimbly navigate the Australian Outback. But one of the coolest versions of the ultra capable Cruiser isn’t even available in the US.
It’s still fun to dream. Additionally, there may be a time when you get to test out a foreign Land Cruiser on holiday, so it may benefit to get to know the vehicle before renting one for a vacation abroad.

For the large body-on-frame SUV that it is, the Land Cruiser Commercial gets great mileage with its diesel engine. The only downside to this Toyota is that if you want to the whole crew on your adventure you’re out of luck.

It does has massive potential to become an amazing built out camping beast prepared to take you to the middle of nowhere. But, alas, we can’t get it here in the US. The closest thing to it is the Lexus GX, which is a super luxury four door built around the same frame with comparable capabilities.
