Meet the all-new Toyota Prado!

2009-08-13 08:02

A Japanese brochure showcasing the all-new Toyota Prado has surfaced on the web.

This popular SUV, which has been around in its current form for way too long, features a fresh look with an aggressive front bumper, sweptback headlights, and integrated LED turn signals on the mirrors. However, the newcomer is still recognisable as a Prado as the overall shape and profile is similar to the current model.

The vehicle gets a brand-new interior, which will be more upmarket with several luxury features.

Though no engine info is available the range-topper is is expected to get at 4.6-liter V8 engine with 230 kW of power.

Toyota will unveil the Prado later this year – there is no indication yet when it will arrive in South Africa but we don’t expect it to be here until late in 2010.
