The Prado is products of the Japanese manufacturer Toyota. It is one of the models from Land Cruiser range, and it belongs to smaller ones, when it is about price. This model was originally launched in 1984 and during these more than three decades, we saw four generations of it. Current model is present from 2009, and it will be produced for some more time, before we see a fifth-generation model. While company’s engineers already work on next-generation model, there are also some novelties that will be presented on current model. The 2017 Toyota Prado is expected to come with some of those novelties.
2017 Toyota Prado specs
The 2017 Toyota Prado is expected to come with several changes, compared to current model. This mid-size SUV, which rides on the J150 platform, will come with several updates. While 2016 year model will come with big mechanical changes, 2017 Prado will be more about visual details. We are expecting to see some visual tweaks, but major changes won’t be seen until complete redesign, which is expected in few year. Most of the characteristic will be the same as for the refreshed model that came two years ago. This update included new front fascia, new LED lighting, suspension improvements and also more of standard equipments.
The 2017 Toyota Prato is expected to feature only some smaller tweaks and most of the changes will be about new standard features. Some improvements when it is about technologies are also expected. So don’t be surprised if you see things like updated infotainment system etc.
