The 2018 Toyota Prado enhances its reputation with new, more modern and robust exterior styling, more sophisticated, comfortable and higher quality interior design, improvements to its dynamic abilities and user-friendliness, both on- and off-road.
Key to the Prado’s peerless off-road capability is its highly durable, deformation-resistant, segment-unique body-on-frame construction.
Easy to maintain and repair, its combination of very high strength and proven durability not only offers a high level of damage protection, but also significantly reduced body twist, allowing the driver to optimise both vehicle positioning and control.
In addition, the body-on-frame construction efficiently isolates the cabin from suspension impacts, making even the most challenging off-road conditions more comfortable for vehicle occupants.
Organised into a powerful, single graphic form, the radiator grille and headlamps have been placed high for greater off-road functionality. The grille openings are as large as possible to allow for optimum engine cooling performance, while the headlamp main beams are positioned inboard to avoid damage from obstacles during off-road driving.
The interior of the new Land Cruiser features revised dashboard styling incorporating new designs for the driver’s instrument binnacle and centre console. It combines improved operability with the refined finish appropriate to a premium quality all-terrain vehicle. The top of the new centre console tower has been lowered for a more sleek appearance and improved front visibility when driving off-road.
High grade Land Cruiser models with automatic transmission come equipped with ‘Toyota Safety Sense’, a set of active safety technologies designed to help prevent or mitigate collisions across a wide range of traffic situations.
Combining a camera and millimetre-wave radar for a high level of detection performance, the Land Cruiser’s Toyota Safety Sense system features a Pre-Collision System (PCS) with a Pedestrian Detection function, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), and Automatic High Beam (AHB) technology.
