TOYOTA Australia has updated pricing for its LandCruiser Prado large SUV, trimming the cost of the majority of the variants while updating styling and specification.
Automatic versions of the entry-level GX grade have copped a price increase of $400, while all other variants have dropped by between $560 for the GX manual and $1200 for the GXL manual.
The auto-only VX and range-topping Kakadu have come down by $911 and $1121 respectively, and as previously reported, the 4.0-litre petrol V6 has been deleted from the range after contributing to just 1.2 per cent of Australian Prado sales.
Kicking off the range from $53,490 plus on-roads is the six-speed manual GX, while the Kakadu tops the line-up at $84,490.
All six-speed automatic variants now gain Toyota’s pre-collision safety system as standard which includes autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and pedestrian detection, active cruise control, lane departure alert and auto high beam, all features that were previously reserved for the VX and Kakadu.
GX variants now get satellite navigation and Toyota Link as standard, while the manual GXL adds bi-LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED foglights and a sun-visor lamp.
Automatic GXL variants already come equipped with these features, in addition to a rear differential lock, Optitron instrument cluster lighting and colour display.
For $3500, GXL buyers can also get leather-accented trim, ventilated and heated power front seats, and heated rear seats.
The VX adds a panoramic rearview mirror, multi-terrain monitor, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, ventilated front seats, cool box and LED foglights.
Top-spec Kakadu examples gain drive mode select and panoramic view monitor.
As part of the upgrade, automatic versions have seen a 500kg increase in braked towing capacity, up to 3000kg.
Styling has been revised to reflect the Prado’s status as a member of Toyota’s LandCruiser family, with a revised headlight and bonnet design that aligns more closely to its 200 Series LandCruiser big brother.
The lower corners of the front and rear bumpers have also been restyled to increase approach and departure angles, while the tail-light clusters have also been altered.
Two new exterior colours – Peacock Black and Dusty Bronze – have been added, while the interior layout has also received updates.
No changes have been made to the Prado’s 2.8-litre turbo-diesel powerplant, which still produces 130kW of power and either 450Nm of torque when paired to the automatic or 420Nm for the manual, with power sent to all four wheels via a full-time four-wheel-drive set-up.
To the end of October, the Prado has been the best-selling large SUV in the country with 12,900 units sold, ahead of the Toyota Kluger (10,256), Subaru Outback (9789), Holden Captiva (8005) and Mazda CX-9 (7618).
