Overall impression and performance
The diesel engine 3.0 liter volume, 1600-2800 rpm and 200 HP, this is a true beast that will tow almost any vehicle that you find! Except for maybe heavy-weight Brabus or G Class Mercedes. In addition, the model has a very loud engine but you can expect tremendous power that not too many cars have! During the off-road drive, you have crawl control, locking rear differential system, steering angle display, active height control and the rear suspension. This makes towing easier if you work in harsh weather conditions.
The Hill Descent Control, Hill start Assist and Crawl Control are some of the features that a driver can use during the off-road, which makes towing easy and comfortable. With a six-speed automatic system, there is no need to hit the clutch just before you start climbing the hill. With Kinetic Dynamic Suspension system, you achieve a smooth ride and wheel articulation even at the toughest terrains. Therefore, you can tow a vehicle and drive it easily over the bumpy road without a fear that it might get stuck somewhere in the trench.
It comes anywhere from $45,000 to $60,000 depending on the mileage, year of production, extra stuff and other features as well. This SUV, in terms of towing, is much better than some of the competitors from the same class, although it comes at the lower price when compared to the rest. Therefore, if we compare ratio price-performance, you get fantastic performance at a reasonable price! If you consider a heavyweight vehicle for muddy/snowy towing, Toyota Land Cruiser series offers you everything you need for safe towing!
