2010 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado


2010-toyota-land-cruiser-prado-21The current Toyota Land Cruiser Prado has been around for the better part of this decade now. Even though it still looks good, it is estimated that a new model should debut for the 2010 model year.

This computer-generated rendering of a possible 2010 Prado was done by a Japanese magazine. It is assumed that design cues should match the facelift received by the 2009 Innova, as well as body contours that are similar to the 2008 Land Cruiser.

The current Prado 4WD was once a great budget buy. With options, nowadays it costs as much as Dhs 170,000, which is insanity for a non-luxury-badged vehicle that hasn’t changed much since 2002. We can only imagine what the new one will go for, assuming Toyota beats the recession and launches a new version.

For the second time this month, the facelifted 2010MY versions of the Land Cruiser V8’s more compact 3-door and 5-door siblings which are known in many markets as the Land Cruiser Prado (not sold in the States) have been photographed undisguised. These latest pictures, which made it into an Arabic site, confirm that the 2010 Land Cruiser Prado gets a redesigned front fascia inspired by Toyota’s latest European models like the Avensis along with more heavily profiled wheel arches and new tail lamps.

Not much else in known about the 2010 Land Cruiser but we suspect that Toyota may also have refreshed the luxury off-roader’s interior. In most markets, the current generation Land Cruiser Prado is available with a choice of two powertrains, a 4.0-liter V6 petrol engine producing 249 horsepower and a 3.0-liter four-banger turbo diesel that cranks out 173 horsepower.
