Even it has been 20 years of the showing this model on the Australian market; it is still an important car on the market. Since 1997, it’s the bestselling SUV car there. That had changed new Prado, who made a big difference from an old version of the well-known model. The popular car becomes not interesting that much and Toyota engineers have to make big changes if they wanted to stay on that market. So, let’s see what they prepared for them.

Including soft-touch material throughout the cabin, 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser has gone one step further in interior design for SUV cars. Together with the wireless phone charger and rear seat entertainment system, dual 10-inch screens and new center console with an integrated cooler box and additional USB port makes this car much more than usually SUV car for rough driving. Add to that Frontal Collision Avoidance, Front Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Alert, and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, automatic high beams, a rearview camera and adaptive cruise control just to imagine what we are saying.

Engine

One of the biggest changes on this new car is his engine. Much improved, much more quiet and strong, without any changes in the cabin during even highest speed and knowing that the engine is real truck and SUV, said that the Toyota engineers had the all hands job. For a big car, it has to be a big engine. It is a 5, 7 liter V8 engine for 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. You’ll be able to choose between front and all-wheel driving system. The other versions, 4, 5-liter twin-turbocharged diesel engine and 4, 6-liter gasoline-burning V8 with 304 horsepower are made only for the Australian market.
