The Toyota LandCruiser Prado is one of Toyota's best-selling large SUV models, earning a strong reputation in Australia for its go-anywhere ability, strong reliability and spaciousness for a large family with up to seven occupants.
Often abbreviated to the Toyota Prado, the name became synonymous in Australia for outback driving and the towing of caravans over the last two decades. In terms of Toyota's line-up, the LandCruiser Prado sits near to top of the range in both price and size, only beaten out by the slightly-larger LandCruiser.
Pricing for the Toyota LandCruiser Prado begins in the mid-$50,000 range and extends to near $90,000 for the range-topping car which includes niceties like a sunroof, luxury cabin appointments and mechanical enhancements including crawl control and self-levelling suspension for off-road driving.
The Toyota LandCruiser Prado range comprises variants including the popular VX, the high-spec Kakadu and the entry-level GX. The car is only offered in one five-door wagon bodystyle and all variants but the entry level (which seats five) feature seven seats. A 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine powers the variants.
