1996 Toyota Land Cruiser

The 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser saw no significant changes for the model year. However, that year marked the first time Lexus offered its own vehicle based on the Land Cruiser, the LX 450.

The 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser came in one trim level and had a 4.5-liter, 212 horsepower six cylinder. A four-speed automatic was the only available transmission. The 1996 Land Cruiser had a permanently engaged four-wheel-drive system. Fuel economy was about 12/14 mpg.

Despite an increasing assortment of luxury options to chose from, the 1996 Land Cruiser remained a favorite among off-roaders and outdoorsy types. They loved the TLC's capabilities on rugged terrain and in inclement weather. However, the car was increasingly popular among the soccer moms that were driving the explosion of the SUV market. Drivers complain about the poor gas mileage and high price to purchase and maintain.
