2024 Toyota LandCruiser Prado Revealed

The all-new Toyota LandCruiser Prado has been revealed with significant visual and mechanical changes, the most notable of which is the application of the LandCruiser 300 Series TNGA-F ladder-frame chassis. This result is a wheelbase that matches the full-size LandCruiser 300 (2,850mm) and a chassis that’s 50 per cent more rigid than the outgoing model.

Australian vehicles will be offered with the 1GD-FTV 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine enhanced with 48-volt technology to help improve fuel consumption. Power figures are the same as the outgoing model that offers 150kW of power and 500Nm of torque. New is the Direct Shift-8AT eight-speed automatic transmission that replaces the existing six-speed.

Further details, including local specifications and model grades, will be released when the Toyota Prado will arrive in Australian showrooms mid-next year.

The inside of the new Prado looks more Lexus than Toyota with large screens measuring 12.3 inches for infotainment (wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and 12.3 inches for the driver’s digital instrument cluster. It’s more feature-packed than the current LandCruiser 300 Series.

It has the same wheelbase as the new LandCruiser 300 Series and the overall length and width are significantly greater too – 95mm longer, wider, and 10mm taller than before. No doubt adults stuffed into the third row will appreciate this size increase, but it also helps offroad.

As does Toyota’s brand-new stabilizer-bar control system which allows the front stabiliser bar to be disconnected for excellent wheel articulation

Look for the new Toyota Prado to release in Australia halfway through 2024. It remains to be seen if the hybrid 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 243kW will be offered in Australia. It’s available at launch in overseas markets like America, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.
