Despite various reports about the redesign, up to this date, we didn’t get any official not relatively reliable insider information about the 2019 Toyota Prado, which is a clear indicator the upcoming model will carry on without any important change. Just like the full-size Land Cruiser, this one is also present on the market for a full decade. We have seen two updates of the current generation but people are still eagerly waiting to see a redesign. It looks we will have to wait for at least one more year. The 2019 Prado will continue in the same way, featuring familiar design characteristics and lists of standard equipment.
2019 Toyota Prado Design
In terms of base design characteristics, there is no place for changes for pretty much a full decade, despite the fact that there have been two facelifts so far. The overall design remains the same, offering spectacular off-road performances. The 2019 Toyota Prado is about to continue in the same way. It will feature the same styling as the model that came a year ago when the second facelift was done.
For that occasion, the company has presented a bunch of new visual details. The focus was on the front end, so you can notice new headlights, as well as the reshaped grille, bumpers and much more. On the other side, the overall shape remains the same. Despite relatively long 110-inch wheelbase, this SUV features extremely capable chassis, so it’s no wonder that there aren’t many SUVs around that can offer such amazing off-road characteristics.
2019 Toyota Prado Interior
When it comes to 2019 Toyota Prado interior, once again expect no changes for the next year. The upcoming model is about to come with a familiar cabin design, which is pretty much a mixed bag in current occasions. On one side, it looks a little bit outdated, which isn’t wonder at all, considering its age. On the other side, you can count on excellent materials quality, as well as on the amazing list of standard equipment. This SUV has a lot to offer in terms of tech features as well.
Count on the latest infotainment system, touchscreen interface, Bluetooth, smartphone integration and much more. In terms of safety, a rearview camera is the only advanced system that comes as a part of standard equipment. On the other side, there is a lot of optional features, like forward collision warning, automatic braking, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers and much more.
2019 Toyota Prado Engines
This model is available all around the world. So, it’s no wonder that there are many engines that can be installed under its hood. One of the most common units is a 2.7-liter gasoline inline-four unit, which delivers around 160 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. Another pretty common unit is a 2.8-liter diesel engine, which is good for about 170 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque.
In Australia, this mid-size SUV comes with a large and capable 4.0-liter V6 gasoline engine, well known for its excellent durability and reliability. This unit delivers around 278 hp and 280 pound-feet of torque.
The Chinese version recently came with one very interesting design change. Instead of this 4.0-liter V6, the Chinese Prado comes with a smaller 3.5-liter V6 unit, which Toyota usually uses for crossovers. It features pretty much the same power (276 hp), but slightly less torque. On the other side, it is more efficient and features much better fuel economy.
2019 Toyota Prado Release Date and Price
Expect to see 2019 Toyota Prado by the end of the year. Depending on the market, base models will go between 35.000 and 40.000 dollars.
