Though it might not sound like an even competition, it actually is. The Toyota Landcruiser starts at $56,215, while a base MDX goes for about $40,000(base retail prices). That why I loade the MDX with the sport package, and the rear DVD system. But the Land cruiser still has the higher price, at $47,795 for the Acura. The Land cruiser makes only 265 horsepower from the 4.7 liter V-8, while the MDX has 300 horsepower from a 3.7 liter V-8. Also, Toyota's fuel economy are down, 13/17, versus MDX's 17/22. Which one is the better Luxury SUV?
