2024 Toyota Land Cruiser Hybrid Falls Short on MPG, Still Tops V-8 Efficiency

Toyota’s highly anticipated release of the 2024 Land Cruiser brought with it promises of impressive fuel efficiency thanks to its innovative hybrid setup. However, recent EPA ratings have revealed a slightly lower MPG figure than initially projected, yet it still outperforms its V-8 predecessor by a significant margin.


Initially touted to achieve a combined MPG of 27, the 2024 Land Cruiser’s official EPA rating now stands at 23 MPG, with 22 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. These figures apply across all trim levels equipped with the 2.4-liter turbo-four hybrid powertrain, including the 1958, Land Cruiser, and First Edition variants.

Performance and Efficiency

Under the hood, the 2024 Land Cruiser boasts Toyota’s i-Force Max hybrid setup, featuring a turbocharged 2.4-liter inline-four engine paired with standard four-wheel drive. This powertrain delivers an impressive 326 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque, ensuring both power and efficiency on and off the road.

Beating the V-8

Despite falling slightly short of its initial MPG estimates, the hybrid Land Cruiser still surpasses the fuel efficiency of its predecessor, which was equipped with a gas-guzzling naturally aspirated 5.7-liter V-8 engine. The previous-generation V-8 Land Cruiser managed only 14 MPG combined, making the 23 MPG of the 2024 model a substantial improvement.


While EPA ratings provide valuable insights, real-world performance often tells a different story. Although we haven’t yet conducted our 75-mph highway fuel economy test on the new Land Cruiser, we anticipate promising results based on its EPA figures and the efficiency of its hybrid powertrain. Stay tuned as we put the 2024 Land Cruiser through its paces in our comprehensive testing.


Despite the slight discrepancy in projected versus actual MPG, the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser Hybrid remains a standout choice for eco-conscious consumers seeking both fuel efficiency and rugged performance. With its impressive hybrid powertrain and improved efficiency over its V-8 predecessor, the Land Cruiser continues to uphold its reputation as a top contender in the SUV market.
