Why choose Toyota Prado?

The iconic Toyota Prado has been on Australian roads for over 20 years earning its reputation as one of Australia’s toughest and most reliable 4WDs. The Toyota Prado is more than a car that will get you from A to B, its a vehicle built for adventure and is designed for families who are ready to explore the great outdoors, without compromising on the luxury, comfort and safety features you've come to expect from Toyota.

We're so excited about the new 2020 Prado that has just landed and want to share with you all of the amazing features. But what's new? And why do you need to know about it? Read on for all the details...

How does the Prado Perform?

More Power. More Torque.

The 2020 Toyota Prado has exceptional performance. The 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine now delivers an impressively smooth 150kW of direct-injected power and a formidable upgraded 500Nm of torque, giving you more than enough muscle to travel anywhere with confidence. 

Even with such impressive performance, this engine also delivers sufficient fuel efficiency with 8.0L/100km for the automatic transmission and 7.9L/100km for the manual transmission (available on GX and GXL models only), or around 1,700km per tank, for the 6-speed manual transmission. Now that’s impressive!

 

Toyota Prado Warranty

When it comes to buying a new car, Toyota believe that nothing should stand between you and the thrill of the drive. Which is why they've made sure new vehicles bought after 1 January 2019 are protected by a five-year / unlimited-kilometre warranty* that covers any part, panel and accessory made by Toyota. How good is that!
