Serving Clarksville, IN, Jeffersonville, IN, and St. Matthews, KY

Toyota gives you some great SUVs to choose from. A lot of people will be deciding between the 2019 Toyota Highlander and the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser. They both offer great passenger comfort and outstanding long-term reliability. While some drivers may prefer the Highlander’s car-like handling, others may desire the Land Cruiser’s legendary off-road capabilities. Let’s take a closer look at how the 2019 Toyota Highlander and the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser compare.


The 2019 Toyota Highlander gives you two proven engines to choose from. While the standard four-cylinder engine is dependable, some drivers will desire the optional V6’s 295-horsepower output. Not only does the extra power promote quicker acceleration, but it also boosts the Highlander’s towing capacity to 5,000 pounds. While the truck-based Land Cruiser isn’t as efficient as the Highlander, it does offer enhanced towing capabilities. A powerful V8 engine helps it to pull more than 8,000 pounds. While both SUVs will perform well in the snow, a full-time 4WD system and undercarriage skid plates make the Land Cruiser a more capable off-road machine.


Like the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser, the 2019 Toyota Highlander can accommodate up to eight passengers. Your family will definitely have plenty of space to stretch out. While the Land Cruiser comes standard with heated and ventilated front seats, they’re found on the Highlander’s upper trims. Both of the SUVs also have a versatile cargo area. Whether you choose the Highlander or the Land Cruiser, you’ll have access to a number of high-tech features. Toyota’s easy-to-use Entune infotainment system is bound to leave you impressed. Meanwhile, a high-output JBL sound system enables music fans to rock out. If you do a lot of traveling with your family, don’t miss out on the available rear-seat entertainment system.


Toyota has become a leader in automotive safety. You can trust both of these SUVs to provide great protection on the road. A lot of helpful safety innovations are available. Although the Highlander’s standard backup camera helps with parking, the optional 360-degree camera will further enhance your visibility in tight spots. Like the Highlander, the Land Cruiser comes standard with a Toyota Safety Sense package. It provides an extra peace of mind. While the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection can activate your brakes when approaching obstacles, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist helps keep you from drifting out of your lane. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control also comes with Toyota Safety Sense. While blind-spot monitoring comes standard on the Land Cruiser, it’s available on the Highlander.

As you can see, both of these SUVs prove to be great family haulers. To experience a real-world comparison of the 2019 Toyota Highlander and the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser, visit your local Jeff Wyler Toyota dealer to take them both for a test drive.
