The Toyota Landcruiser Prado

Written by

Shaun McGowan

Toyota’s catchphrase for Landcruiser Prado is ‘rugged elegance’ - a kind of marketing shorthand designed to let you know that unlike vehicles such as the Toyota Kluger, Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento, Prado is a seven-seater with true off-road capability.

The Prado is available in four model grades - GX, GXL, VX and Kakadu. It features the same 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine (150kW and 500Nm) as Hilux and Fortuner. Unlike the Hilux and Fortuner, however, Prado features an all-wheel-drive system that drives all four wheels continuously, and affords greater surefootedness in conditions such as wet bitumen and good dirts roads.

(In those conditions in Hilux and Fortuner you are forced to use the transmission in ‘2H’ mode to avoid transmission damage.)

Well equipped

Even the base-model ‘GX’ Prado is well equipped, featuring 17-inch alloys, Apple and Android phone integrations, nine-speaker audio, a load of standard advanced safety tech, rain-sensing wipers, and LED daytime running lights.

Towing capacity

Tow capacity across the range is 3000kg, and the fuel capacity is high, at 150 litres. That’s 87 litres in the main tank, and 63 in a secondary tank, which combine to deliver outstanding touring range.

In summary

As you step up through the range, GXL grade adds things like tri-zone climate control air conditioning, plus the third seating row for seven seats, rear parking sensors, and rear privacy glass.

VX adds four heated seats, 19-inch alloy wheels, front parking sensors and 14 speakers, plus a panoramic ‘multi-terrain’ monitor camera system, and leather accents on the seats.

Kakadu models get a tilt/slide sunroof, a nine-inch rear cabin entertainment system with three wireless headphones, an automatically adjusting suspension system Toyota calls ‘Kinetic Dynamic’ or ‘KDSS’ plus a multi-terrain switching system for various off-road environments.

Essentially, Prado is a significant step up from Fortuner in terms of refinement, and it will do 85 per cent of everything Landcruiser 300 will do, for a fraction of the up-front cost.
