Toyota Landcruiser vs. Acura MDX Sport Package with rear DVD system
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?

The third-row in the LC, and LX and GX, are really not that practical for daily use; especially anyone over 5 feet tall.
The MDX is a jacked-up minivan. Fine for going to the mall on a snowy day, but not something to take on a challenging trail.
Pick which one is suitable for you. Most folks will seldom need the LandCruiser's off-road prowess.
In terms of company size, Honda is about 1/3 of Toyota. It takes a lot of effort and cost to make V8 motors well and profitable , especially in today's economy.
Acura RDX is a V6. High compression V6 to generate 300 Horses.
I have 2 Land Cruisers 1998 and 2003 and I love both of them. 100% Made in Japan.
Never driven a MDX and not sure where it is made from. I bet Canada or Ohio.
I believe you meant to say MDX is a V6 with 300HP. The RDX is a turbo 4.
