It’s been a long time coming, but the new Toyota LandCruiser Prado has finally arrived. Revealed at the Frankfurt motor show in November and now available in Australia, it boasts a raft of new features sure to impress even the most discerning 4-wheel driver. Here’s the lowdown you need.

A fresh new exterior

There’s not a lot you can do to change the look of a 4-wheel drive, but Toyota have given it a good crack. Noticeable styling changes include a sculpted bonnet for increased downward visibility, re-profiled fenders and a revised grille and restyled headlamps. The rear has also undergone a re-design with new lamp clusters and a smaller rear garnish plate, while the front and rear bumpers have also been lowered for increased off-road manoeuvrability.

Advanced safety features

When it comes to safety, Toyota’s covered all the bases. Automated emergency braking, previously reserved for upscale VX and Kakadu models, is now standard across GX and GXL variants and includes pedestrian detection. Lane departure alert, adaptive cruise control, auto high beam and forward collision warning will also be standard across the entire Prado line up.

And under the bonnet…

The Petrol V6 variant has been given the heave-ho, but thanks to consistently high local sales, the 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel engine remains. It’ll generate 130kW and 45Nm when mated with a six-speed transmission (or 420Nm when tied to the six-speed manual).
