It was still a body-on-frame construction, with rugged suspension and able to go effortlessly over harsh terrain, even if mo...

2013 - 2017

The 2013 Land Cruiser Prado is more of a facelift than a new model. This is because Toyota knew that the Land Cruiser fans are satisfied with the general look of the vehicle that is an old, 2006 one. But its fans didn't want it changed. So the Toyota designers did only some mild changes on the outside so the owners will show that this is a new vehicle. Even though the car had the same sh...

In 2002, Toyota introduced a new generation for its well-known Land Cruiser/Prado J120 offroad-er, replacing the six-year-old Land Cruiser J90. The Japanese carmaker had to recover the ground it lost with the J90 model, which didn't prove to be very successful, and that's why it was replaced sooner than other Land Cruiser models. The new model, code-named 120, offered a 109.8" ...

But Toyota flexed its muscles with the Land Cruiser Prado, a car with independent f...
