Powerplant 

The 2025 Toyota Prado will be powered by a re-engineered 1GD 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder diesel engine. It produces 150kW of power and 500Nm of torque. The turbo-diesel engine will be combined with Toyota’s V-Active technology. Incorporating a 48V electric motor-generator, a 48V lithium-ion battery and an idle-stop system.

A new eight-speed automatic transmission has also been selected, with Toyota saying the reason behind that is it offers closer gear ratios than the six-speed unit it replaces.

Braked towing capacity for the new Prado is listed as 3,500kg. There is also a new new tow haul system that holds lower gears longer, gives better engine response during towing and provides engine braking to help slow the vehicle.

Driveline-wise, a permanent 4WD driveline is retained, with low-range gearing, a centre differential, downhill assist control and A-TRC traction control. There is a combined 110 litres of fuel capacity, with the GX model Prado also gaining Crawl Control from the LandCruiser 300 Series.

What Toyota has to say 

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the comprehensive changes to LandCruiser Prado reflected customer demand for an extremely capable off-roader packed with premium features.

“Customers in this segment are continually upgrading their expectations and will appreciate the inherent value in the new range with its head-turning looks, impressive technologies, latest off-road features, optimum blend of performance and efficiency, and even greater creature comforts,” Mr Hanley said.

“The 2024 LandCruiser Prado will build on the model’s reputation as one of Australia’s best-loved vehicles, equally capable and comfortable whether taking owners across the outback or on the school run,” Mr Hanley said.

“Blending seven decades of LandCruiser off-road heritage with the modern utility and appointments of a luxury SUV, it is destined to be the most desirable generation yet.

“We look forward to opening our order books for this great new range during the third quarter.”
