New Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Matte Black Edition Launches In Japan

New Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Matte Black Edition Launches In Japan

 

The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado troopers on, and it’s currently accessible in a new Matte Black Edition in Japan. This follows the 70th Anniversary Edition that launched last year, just before the new Land Cruiser appeared.

The new Matte Black Edition adds no performance redesigns, yet it brighten up the SUV’s styling. Toyota adds matte black trim pieces all over, including the grille and grille insert, the haze light bezels, and the front headlight garnish. The SUV likewise gets six-spoke 18-inch matte black aluminum wheels.

The updates aren’t significant as the aging SUV needs a huge redesign. It’s more modest than the Land Cruiser, which entered another age keep going year and went on sale for the 2010 model year. The SUV market has fundamentally changed from that point forward, and another LC Prado could be on the horizon.

Toyota launched the all-new Land Cruiser LC300 last year, giving the model all-new underpinnings as Toyota’s TNGA stage. The SUV got a significant styling upgrade and an enormously patched up inside that adjusted the model to the remainder of the SUV portion. We expect the Land Cruiser’s new stage to support the redid Land Cruiser Prado at whatever point the refreshed form shows up.

The Land Cruiser Prado is solely accessible in one or the other white or black. The new trim doesn’t change the SUV’s powertrain, which seems to keep offering either the 201-pull (149-kilowatt) 2.8-liter diesel or the 163-hp (121 kW) 2.7-liter gasoline engine. Power hits every one of the four wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox.

Toyota is selling the Land Cruiser Prado Matte Black Edition for ¥4.3 to ¥5.1 million ($32,662 to $38,739 at the present exchange rates). The Land Cruiser Prado is like the Lexus GX accessible in the US. It’s more modest than the standard Land Cruiser and intended to be somewhat less rugged than its full-blown sibling.
