The safety of entry-level GX and GXL variants has been bolstered with the addition of blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert1 as standard along with existing Toyota Safety Sense1 features.

All Prados are powered by the 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine producing maximum outputs of150kW and 500Nm, and mated exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission and a full time 4WD system.


Given that we can’t travel overseas touring Australia is the best option for family holidays and the 150L fuel tank in the Prado means that you can easily go 1000km before you refill.

The Prado will also tow 3000kg and has excellent 4WD capability along with heaps of aftermarket Accessories.

Priced from just $60,830 for the 5 seat GX through to $87,800 for the Kakadu plus the usual costs
