The new Land Cruiser Prado is expected to debut in 2024, with a reveal anticipated later this year. Taking cues from the Lexus GX, which showcases boxy proportions and styling, the Toyota version may lean toward a more rugged and retro aesthetic.

Reports suggest that the LandCruiser Prado could come equipped with a 2.4-litre four-cylinder hybrid engine. With an estimated power output of around 250kW and torque of 550Nm, it will offer improved performance compared to the current Prado model available in Australia. Off-road enthusiasts can likely expect capable off-road capabilities and a continuation of the LandCruiser’s legacy.

The return of the LandCruiser Prado signifies Toyota’s commitment to celebrating its off-road heritage while addressing the previous model’s drawbacks. The new Land Cruiser Prado is expected to be a significant improvement over its aging predecessor, although it may come with a potentially higher price tag if the 300 Series is anything to go by.

As Toyota prepares to unveil the new model, we can expect a rugged and capable SUV that pays homage to the LandCruiser’s storied off-road history.
