Toyota Prado 120 Type With a Wide Range of Product Line!!

Toyota Land Cruiser Prado was launched in 1990 based on the Land Cruiser 70 wagon released in 1984.
The 3rd generation of Land Cruiser Prado was launched in 2002 as a more user-friendly town-use SUV that retains the cross-country feel of its predecessor while also having a luxurious interior texture.

The appeal point of the Land Cruiser Prado will be its position to bridge the gap between a large luxury SUV like the Land Cruiser and a lighter luxury crossover SUV like the Harrier. It is more affordable than the Land Cruiser and, of course, has excellent ability to run on rough roads.

The 3rd generation Prado has gained popularity by improving driving performance and safety through one full model change and three partial improvements in the model life of about eight years.


In the full model change in 2002, the diesel engine had the 1KD-FTV type of 4-cylinder 3,000cc common rail direct injection turbo, as well as the conventional 1KZ-TE type and 5L-E type for overseas markets.The drive system was a center differential full-time 4WD that used 2-speed transfer of all cars and Bosch (formerly Zexel, now JTEKT) Torsen gear, and all cars were equipped with a center differential lock and an optional rear diff-lock.
Immobilizers were also adopted for Prado as a protection against car thefts of luxury SUVs.


Partially improved. Changed the 2.7L gasoline from 3RZ-FE to the newly developed 2TR-FE.

2TR Engine

It was the last domestic diesel vehicle that could be purchased as a new vehicle and registered for passenger use except in regulated areas, while each company withdrew from the sale of diesel passenger cars to strict emission regulations.
There are 5MT and 6MT in models outside Japan.
