Model in Focus: Toyota Land Cruiser PradoBy marian on July 24th, 2015
SUV’s are known for their power, performance, and comfort. However, many manufacturers seem to leave out style and luxury in some of their SUV models in favor of efficiency and function. Not so with Toyota Motors! As one of the leading car makers in the world, Toyota goes out of its way to give you some of the best set of wheels you’ll ever have. And one of the SUV’s they have for your pleasure is the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.
Just like the Toyota Fortuner owned by many in the Philippines and elsewhere, the Land Cruiser Prado is a tough yet elegant road king. Read on below to find out what it has to offer.
A Classy Exterior
Whenever people hear “Land Cruiser,” what comes to their minds is all-terrain ruggedness and toughness. Well, you know what, it is a well-deserved label! However, the Land Cruiser Prado’s looks go beyond what its name suggests! Its big and solid body as well as its rounded edges gives it a formidable impression—both in the wilderness and in the urban jungle.
Elegant Dash Finish
The Land Cruiser Prado is not one to lose luxury and style over practicality and function. Its dashboard is proof of this. It has beautiful wooden finish and accents to give the interior a warm, cozy, and classy feeling. It goes beyond that, too, as the panel is positioned to give you a good overview of what’s in front of you and its surroundings, and it’s equipped with instruments that control the interior’s atmosphere, sound and temperature. Aside from what’s on the inside, you also have off-road function features to control of what’s on the outside.
The Power Within
The Land Cruiser Prado does is a very powerful vehicle. Thanks to its massive engine ( a 4.0L 6-Cylinder V-Type 24 Valve DOHC with VVT-I), it can yield an output power of up to 275 Hp, which is then transmitted to its big and sturdy wheels to reach great speeds in concrete roads as well as to easily tread uneven earth and rocky terrain.
Beyond Shock Value
Aside from power, performance, speed, and design, Toyota created the Land Cruiser Prado with comfort in mind. That is why the company built in a state-of-the-art, sturdy, and reliable suspension system. This allows the Land Cruiser Prado to cross hostile, shifting terrain without making you and your passengers feel uneasy.
Off-Street Smart Features
Even for a lot of SUV’s, off-road driving can still take a lot of effort. Although these vehicles can handle different types of terrain, driving them can never be as easy as on smooth roads. However, the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is equipped with cutting-edge smart features like CRAWL Control and Hill-Start Assist Control that helps it traverse elevated and rough ground. And aside from its digital technology capabilities, the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado has 4-wheel drive, making it maneuverable even in hostile environments.
Some roads can be difficult to take. But with the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, you’ll be able to traverse it more smoothly. Want to find out more about this SUV? Go check it out by visiting the Toyota outlet nearest you!
