More tech and a new look for the consistently high seller
Despite the fact that the 150 Series Prado wasn’t much more than a big facelift of the 120 Series with an updated driveline, the LandCruiser Prado is a consistently stellar seller in Australia. To continue building that success and not lose ground to new and updated competition, Toyota has given the 150 a bit of a refresh.
Since the 2.8-litre diesel and six-speed automatic and manual gearboxes are quite new, they are remaining unchanged. Toyota is cancelling the 4.0-litre petrol V6, because it reckons more than 98% of people opt for the oiler.
Along with a new look, which takes inspiration from the 200 Series LandCruiser, the 2018 Prado will have more tech included across the board. VX and Kakadu model technology will float down into the GX and GXL, like emergency braking, active cruise control and lane departure alert.
The new-look Prado will be available in November 2017. Any changes to pricing have not been announced yet.
