The Japanese manufacturer is working on the next generation of this iconic SUV and it looks like the new model could come already next year, as 2018 Toyota Prado. This mid-size SUV originates from several decades ago, but the company uses this name since 1990. During these 27 years of production, we have seen four generations of it. The current model is present since 2009. It is for about eight years old, but the company did few updates. So it will be competitive enough until the new model comes. According to the latest reports, we could see next generation already early next year, as 2018 Toyota Prado. This new model will come with plenty of changes, such as new platform, new styling, engines, interior design and plenty of new technologies.

This redesign is about to bring many new design solutions. The 2018 Toyota Prado will come with changes in pretty much all aspects. The exact details about this redesign are still unknown, but it is for sure that the new model will get plenty of improvements. Firstly, it will ride on a new platform, which will utilize some lightweight materials. This will provide some weight reduction, but we are pretty sure that the new model will keep the current strength and rigidity, which is crucial for an off-road drive. The 2018 Toyota Prado will also get a completely new styling. The exterior of the new SUV will be completely adapted to the brand’s latest design language. This will surely make the new model much attractive than the current model. We expect similar thins inside.
2018 Toyota Prado engines
When it comes to the powertrain, we are pretty sure that the 2018 Toyota Prado will come with plenty of novelties. It will get a new 3.5-liter V6 engine, which company already offers on the Chinese market. This engine has a max output of 275 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Although it is a little bit old, the current 4.0-liter unit is likely to carry on. This engine offers an astonishing durability and reliability and it proved itself so many times as an excellent choice for all those who use Toyota’s vehicles primarily for the off-road drive.
