Toyota LandCruiser Prado
KDJ150R LandCruiser Prado
1 Sep 2015
Toyota's mainstay LandCruiser Prado was the first to use the car-maker's brand new Euro 5-compliant global diesel engine when it launched in September 2015.
Installed as part of a 2016 revision package, the 1GD-FVT 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine made 130kW and 450Nm in automatic guise, with torque falling to 420Nm in manual spec.
Fuel economy was rated at 7.9 litres per 100 kilometres.
Toyota also tweaked the 3.0-litre V6 petrol variant to comply with Euro 5 regulations.
The upgrades were accompanied by price rises across the line-up, which erased some of the reductions made in January 2015 in the wake of the free-trade agreement with Japan.
