What Are Some Land Cruiser High-Tech Features?

The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser comes in only one trim level that lights up the road with LED projector-beam headlights that automatically come on and off and includes headlight cleaners. To bring in views of the clouds and the stars, a power tilting and sliding moonroof has a sunshade and one-touch open/close. When the weather turns fowl, rain-sensing aerodynamic variable intermittent wipers clear the front view. Seating for up to eight passengers is made more comfortable with a four-zone automatic front and rear climate control. To provide information and entertainment, the Entune™ Premium JBL® Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite features a 9-inch high-resolution multimedia touch-screen with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, HD Radio™, hands-free phone capability, and 14 JBL® speakers that include a subwoofer. The heated and ventilated front row allows 10-way power adjustments for the driver and three-position memory. The heated second row folds in a 40/20/40 split and can recline, fold and tumble. The 50/50-split third row has folding headrests.

What Are Driver-Assist Features For The Toyota Land Cruiser?

2018 Toyota Land CruiserNew for the current model year is Toyota Safety Sense™ P, a suite of driver-assist features such as the following:

        
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection relies on radar and a camera to detect vehicles or people up front. If a collision is likely, this system issues warnings and helps you with stopping through Brake Assist. If you don't react in time, it can engage braking to prevent an accident.
  •     
  • Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System informs with audio-visual alerts if you if you stray from within visible highway markings.
  •     
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control keeps you at a safe distance from the vehicle in front at speed of 32 MPH on higher. It can automatically slow down or speed up your SUV to compensate for changes in traffic speed.
  •     
  • Automatic High Beams are designed to brighten the road at speeds above 25 MPH. When they detect the approach of vehicles, they can automatically switch from high to low beams so that other drivers are not blinded by the glare of your lights.

Other safety features include a Blind Spot Monitor to tell you when cars have entered your blind zone and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, which warns you of vehicles crossing your path as you go into reverse. In case of an accident, side-impact door beams absorb crash energy to prevent intrusion into the passenger area. Up to 10 airbags can deploy including ones for the knees of the driver and front passenger.
