The upcoming 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is coming to the markets with important upgrades. This model will reportedly gain a redesign and a new hybrid powertrain. Most likely, it will be the same system found in the Toyota Crown. New engine also means the new transmission, which is great to hear.
In some countries, Land Cruiser Prado will continue to offer diesel engines. On the other hand, some rumors are predicting a new and more potent diesel unit. Some other markets will offer a 2.4-liter gasoline engine. New design is on the way, along with numerous interior updates.
Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Redesign
The 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado will get a new design. The current styling is present for years now, and this SUV is finally getting a new look. Toyota will deliver new architecture, most likely the TNGA-F platform. The same platform underpins the Tundra truck and Sequoia SUV. Thanks to that, the new Land Cruiser Prado will lose some weight and it will provide better driving dynamics.
The styling will be different, as Toyota plans to provide new front fascia, new trim level, and new optional packages. We think that vehicle’s dimensions won’t change, which means the wheelbase will probably remain intact. Anyway, serious visual upgrades are on the way and this SUV will also get new exterior colors.
Inside the cabin, the next 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado will gain more upright materials and more high-tech amenities. The dashboard is completely new, finished in a different shape than before. Of course, this SUV will introduce more standard equipment and more driver-assistance aids.
A bigger infotainment touchscreen will dominate the interior, and Toyota will also offer a new digital instrument cluster. New platform will provide better comfort, but Land Cruiser Prado model will deliver around the same amount of passenger space as the outgoing model.
As we said, the biggest upgrade over the outgoing model is the hybrid powertrain. The forthcoming 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado will get a hybrid system from the Toyota Crown model. This means the SUV will use a 2.4-liter turbo-four engine in combination with an electric motor. Total output will be rated at about 350 horsepower. Moreover, new six-speed automatic transmission will also be available. Reportedly, the hybrid version will have a standard four-wheel-drive system.
As for the traditional combustion engines, Land Cruiser Prado will offer a 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine. This engine is not available in all countries, but it is a very reliable unit with 205 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. A 2.4-liter turbo-four gasoline engine should be on offer as well, replacing the larger and older 4.0-liter V6 powertrain.
