2018 Toyota Prado range welcomes lower prices

Refreshed styling, sharper pricing and diesel-only for Prado in 2018

The Toyota Prado will end 2017 as the nation’s best-selling large SUV, but Toyota will take the model into the new year with sharper prices, refreshed styling and improved equipment.

Toyota Australia today confirmed price reductions of up $1,200 on five models in the 2018 Toyota Prado range.

While a modest $400 price increase will apply on new 5 and 7-seat GX automatic models.

Those GX automatic offerings justify the slight increase through the addition of autonomous emergency braking (with pedestrian detection), active cruise control, lane departure alert and auto high beam.

Those safety systems are now standard across the range.

Also across the Prado range is a 500kg boost in braked towing capacity, the now all turbo-diesel Prado range boasting a 3000kg braked towing capacity.

While off-roaders will be glad to see that a rear diff lock is now standard on auto GXL and VX grades.

The refreshed exterior styling includes a new bonnet, as well new front guards, bumpers and taillights, along with two new paint colours - Peacock Black and Dusty Bronze (as seen in the photos).

While the interior changes are headlined by a new-look instrument panel.

Sales and marketing chief at Toyota, Tony Cramb, tells us the Prado is ready to stay in the lead in the 208 SUV sales race.

“The latest upgrades add to its appearance, comfort, convenience and safety, while delivering great value for money.”

The 2018 Toyota LandCruiser Prado range kicks off from $53,490.
