The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is a full-size four-wheel-drive vehicle in the Land Cruiser range produced by the Japanese automaker Toyota. It is based on Toyota's J150 platform and has an independent front suspension, a ladder frame and a two-speed transfer case. In North America, it is sold as the Lexus GX 470, with almost identical body panels and a V8 engine. It was named after it to distinguish it from the larger Land Cruiser, renamed Land Cruiser Amazon, which was already on sale.
In Europe, it is simply sold as the Toyota Land Cruiser LC3, LC4 or LC5 (depending on the generation) or with the numerical series designation (LC 70, LC 90 and LC 120). In other parts of the world, it is known as the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is manufactured in Tahara, Aichi, Japan and Envigado, Colombia. It is one of the few large 4WD cars that can match or improve its performance off-road.
The special-edition Prado Altitude variant has a replacement tire moved under the car. Recently, production of the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado has been interrupted on several assembly lines in Japan due to earthquakes in the northeast of the country. The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is a great choice for those looking for a reliable and capable SUV-type wagon with a seven-seat cab and proven reliability. It offers unparalleled service backrest and is one of the most popular vehicles in its class.
With its off-road capabilities and comfortable interior, it's no wonder why so many people choose the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.
