Drivers seeking an SUV with dyed-in-the-wool capability and a commanding body turn their eyes to the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser and 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Once you look closer, you’ll find that only the Toyota SUV offers:
The new Toyota Land Cruiser and new Mercedes-Benz G-Class both come fitted with powerful 8-cylinder engines as standard, and yet the Toyota SUV manages to deliver both stronger towing specs (8,100 pounds vs. 7,000 pounds) and superior efficiency scores (up to 18 mpg highway* vs. up to 14 mpg highway). Toyota even has the confidence to offer stronger warranty coverage: a 60,000-mile/60-month powertrain warranty vs. the 50,000-mile/48-month offering from Mercedes-Benz.
The Toyota Land Cruiser is notable for its plush interior as well as its boundless capability. From passenger capacity to climate control, it puts the underwhelming Mercedes-Benz G-Class interior to shame, offering features that you can’t get on the G-Class such as:
The Land Cruiser also has room for up to 8 occupants, while the G-Class can only accommodate 5.
For an SUV starting at $123,600, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class feels unforgivably underequipped in terms of safety technology. Just a few of the things you’ll find on the Land Cruiser but not on the G-Class are:
Even a $18,600** Toyota Corolla L includes those features as standard!
For the peace of mind you deserve while navigating traffic between Oak Brook and Joliet or driving intro Aurora at night, your best bet is to choose the Toyota Land Cruiser over the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
As much as the 2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class might impress in isolation, it’s swiftly upset by the 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser. Contact us today to find out more, or feel free to apply for financing online.
