The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado SUV of the current generation is a long-liver – the car has been produced for 12 years already. This is a very long time for the modern world.
However, in 2022, the new generation Land Cruiser Prado should be presented: the SUV will be the younger brother of the Land Cruiser 300, but it will receive almost the same options and functions. And, of course, Prado will remain a real SUV: the frame, four-wheel drive and locks will not go anywhere.
True, the journalists of the Japanese portal Best Car believe that the manufacturer can postpone the premiere of the Land Cruiser Prado from mid-2022 to 2023 – the fact is that next year Toyota has planned a major update of the model range and, possibly, the debut of such an important model like Prado it would be better to move a little.
If you believe the preliminary information, then the wheelbase of the new generation Land Cruiser Prado will slightly increase (+50 mm). This will make the interior of the car slightly more spacious. And the driving performance of the SUV should only improve from this.
It is expected that the new Prado will receive a 2.8-liter diesel engine and a 2.7-liter gasoline unit. The engines will be mated to 6 or 8-speed automatic transmissions. In addition, a hybrid power plant will appear in the range, which will consist of an electric motor and a 2.5-liter gasoline engine. However, such a version will not appear on sale until 2024-2025.
At the moment, the current generation of the Prado SUV can be bought in Ukraine from $ 45,200.
