Toyota Prado Australian Details

Australia’s favourite large SUV is set to become even more appealing for customers when the all-new LandCruiser Prado range arrives in Australia in mid-2024, with a new off-road focussed variant, 48-volt technology across the range, and retro-inspired styling.

The five-variant Prado range brings the rugged capability worthy of a LandCruiser name, with major improvements to driveability, technology and design.

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the all-new LandCruiser Prado will continue to resonate with Australian families and adventurers.

“Over decades the Prado has become a favourite for Australians in need of an SUV able to transport the whole family during the week and go off the beaten path on the weekend, all with signature Toyota reliability,” he said.

“The new-generation Prado will continue the legacy forged by its predecessors when it arrives here later this year, with the addition of 48-volt technology and the new Altitude grade making it more appealing than ever.”

The all-new LandCruiser Prado range will build upon the line-up of the current generation with GX, GXL, VX and flagship Kakadu grades, and the addition of a new high-end Altitude variant aimed at adventure-focused customers looking to take their Prado further off-road.

LandCruiser Prado GX

The Prado line-up continues to open with the five-seat GX grade, distinguishable from the outside by 18-inch dark grey alloy wheels, an upper grille with ‘TOYOTA’ lettering, LED headlights and daytime running lights, retractable body-coloured exterior mirrors, darkened front and rear bumpers, side sills and wheelarches, and a manual tailgate with glass hatch.

Inside, the GX features fabric seats with six-way manual driver adjustment, a 7.0-inch colour MID display, automatic dual-zone climate control, all-weather rubber floor mats and a 220V power outlet in the rear.

Multimedia on all variants comes in the form of a 12.3-inch multimedia system with wireless Apple CarPlay®1 and Android Auto™2, embedded satellite navigation3 with cloud function4, DAB+ digital radio5, Toyota Connected Services6 and on GX, a 10-speaker audio system.

Inside, the GXL adds a third row of seats for seven-seat capacity, with synthetic leather-accented upholstery and 50:50 split fold seat back for the third row. Front seats offer heating and ventilation with an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, genuine leather-accented steering wheel and shift knob and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

LandCruiser Prado Altitude

The new Altitude grade makes full use of the LandCruiser Prado’s excellent fundamental off-road capability, introducing a number of exclusive features designed to tackle the toughest terrain the country has to offer.

The Altitude version offers enhanced capability with the fitment of 18-inch matte grey alloy wheels with Toyo Open Country all-terrain tyres, a rear locking differential, and a new stabiliser disconnect mechanism7 (replacing AVS) which provides an extra 10 per cent of wheel articulation to help maximise traction on uneven surfaces.

With a tough exterior look to match its performance, the Altitude variant features black door handles and tailgate garnish, black over-fender moulding, a moon roof and the option of two-tone colourways10.

Available exclusively in five-seat configuration, the Altitude builds on the specification of the VX and inside, adds a digital rearview mirror, heated steering wheel and head-up display.

Engine and drivetrain

All Prado variants are powered by the same 150kW, 500Nm 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder powertrain with 48-volt technology, paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Every Prado offers full-time all-wheel drive with a lockable torque-sensing Torsen®9 centre differential and low-range gearing, with a strong 3,500kg braked towing capacity11 across the range.

A total of eight exterior paint colours will be offered on the Prado including the new Altitude-exclusive Tanami Taupe and Ningaloo Blue, optionally available with a white roof.12

Toyota Prado August 14 2023 update

Toyota have just shown their new generation Prado with improved performance, mechanical upgrades, and more rugged styling.  

2024 Toyota LandCruiser Prado 1Before listeners get too excited, the new Prado isn’t due here until mid-2024 and pricing hasn’t been announced yet. But I can tell you a bit about it.

The main improvement is that the Prado now shares the same platform as the 300 series LandCruiser. Which means in this case the same wheelbase.

Other improvements include better wheel travel from the revised suspension, along with better ride and handling.

It now comes with electronic steering, along with a muscular styling redesign. Some would call it a boxy design, but its certainly a departure from the existing model.

The new Prado comes with the familiar 2.8L turbo diesel engine. This produces with 150 kilowatts of power and 500 Newton metres of torque. This is matched to a new direct shift eight speed automatic transmission.

The engine now comes with mild hybrid technology to improve fuel economy.

The Prado and the Pajero were doubly responsible for the surge in larger SUV popularity as a family transport in the mid to late 90”s. It’s been hugely successful, but with changing buyer tastes, will the new model be as successful.

I like the muscular style and having a true 4WD as an alternative to the urban based SUVs is always a good thing.

More Toyota Prado new generation details

  • New-generation LandCruiser Prado unveiled with new design, platform and technology
  • All new model retains the essence of LandCruiser performance for lifestyle-focused families
  • Due on sale in Australia mid-2024 

The all-new Toyota LandCruiser Prado family SUV has made its world premiere. Bringing with it significant mechanical upgrades, enhanced performance, and rugged styling changes. Planned arrival in Australian showrooms mid next year.

Since its arrival in 1996, the Prado has been one of Australia’s most popular large SUVs. Thanks to its blend of capability, amenity and passenger-oriented comfort. The all-new model continues that brief with go-anywhere performance and a design that symbolises the essence of the LandCruiser.

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the new Prado provides all the hallmarks of a LandCruiser that customers love.

“Australian customers appreciate the vast capability of the LandCruiser Prado. From use as a family vehicle, to off-roading, towing and long-distance touring, which is evidenced by its huge popularity,” Mr Hanley said.

“The all-new Prado takes everything that customers love about the Prado to a new level. With even greater performance, capability and technology, as well as bold new styling inside and out.”

New generation Prado

The new-generation Prado adopts a new design direction that fuses traditional and contemporary styling cues. Employing horizontal lines inspired by LandCruisers of yesteryear to deliver on the theme of functional beauty.

The front end is based around a rectangular grille and tri-beam headlights, with a low-set front cowl to improve forward visibility.

Muscular wheelarches and strong horizontal lines provide a sense of strength, with a low beltline that further improves visibility for occupants.

At the rear, the Prado features a vertically oriented tailgate and simple tail-light signature to complement the front end. It has silver lower bumpers at both the front and rear of the vehicle.

Dimensions and platform

Measuring 4,920mm long, 1,988mm wide and 1,860mm tall, the all-new Prado is 95mm longer and wider, and 10mm taller than before. Its 2,850mm wheelbase is 60mm longer than before, and now matches the length of the LandCruiser 300 Series.1

The Prado now shares its underpinnings with the 300 Series, riding on the rugged and sophisticated TNGA-F ladder-frame chassis. This is 50 per cent more rigid than the current-generation Prado, helping to increase overall vehicle rigidity by 30 per cent.

The modern and stiff platform allows for improved suspension performance. With greater wheel articulation for off-roading and excellent handling and ride comfort on-road.

Wheel articulation is improved further with Toyota’s brand-new stabilizer-bar control system which allows the front stabiliser bar to be disconnected for excellent wheel articulation, while enhanced functionality for the multi-terrain select and multi-terrain monitor systems help the Prado go even further off-road.

The adoption of electric power steering provides a crisper steering feel and enhanced low-speed manoeuvrability on-road, maximises control when off-roading, and allows compatibility with active safety systems such as lane trace assist.
