Love the Cruiser
We traded in our 2015 Suburban LTZ after two years of ownership. It's was starting to rattle, interior trim wearing out and falling off, plus it had been in the shop for multiple warranty repairs.
The new cruiser is like driving in a depravation chamber it is so quiet, no rattle, squeaks, or noises.
It's not as flashy as an escalade which we like....it's more exclusive understated elegance. The fit and finish is great, no rough edges, and well put together. Compare it to other vehicles and you will notice. The whole truck is over engineered for what the average person will ever use it for. The seats are very comfortable and all of the gauges and controls are logically laid out and easily accessible. There's a bunch of nice tech features from the radar cruise control to the multiple safety systems.
The kids love the center cooler ice box and the built in HD video monitors in the back of the front seats. The depreciation on the Suburban was really shocking after only two years of ownership. The land cruisers seem to hold there value MUCH better both short term and long term.
The negatives: there is definitely less storage room in the rear then in a suburban or other full size SUV's, (we bought a hitch mounted cargo carrier for long trips and lots of luggage and it works great.(it's not like we carried a ton of stuff in the Suburban everyday.)
Gas mileage and the tank are less and I wish the tank was bigger. The brakes are ultra responsive if you're not used to them.
Overall, this is phenomenal truck. Yes, it's pricey, it's not as flashy, but If you want some exclusivity, the quietest and smoothest ride, and something that is truely off-road capable to get you wherever you want...get a Land Cruiser.
I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES
