Toyota has announced official pricing on the 2010 redesigned Land Cruiser Prado model in the British market. For the time being the car is only offered as a 5-door model and 5 or 7 seats configuration available in three trim levels: LC3, LC4 and LC5, equipped with a revised 171bhp 3.0-liter D-4D engine and a five-speed automatic transmission, starting from £29,795 going up to £44,795.
The new Prado facelift is slightly bigger than its predecessor and comes with a long list of standard and optional features in terms of luxury, technology and off-road performance.
New Land Cruiser introduces a series of advanced but user friendly features that help the driver tackle even the most challenging routes. These include: – Electrically modulated Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS), which minimises body roll and gives positive steering on-road, and increases wheel articulation off-road.
Full-time All-wheel drive with Torsen limited slip differential.
Multi-Terrain Select (MTS), with four driver-selectable modes to tailor vehicle settings for different off-road conditions.
Multi-Terrain Monitor, a world-first system of front and side view cameras that give the driver a real-time view of areas immediately around the vehicle that can’t be seen from the wheel.
Crawl Control, which controls the engine and brakes to maintain a slow, safe speed when driving off-road or wading, so the driver only needs to concentrate on steering. This operates in both forward and reverse gears.
Active Traction Control (A-TRC), Multi-Terrain ABS and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) are fitted as standard on all models.
The car is also very well equipped even in the basic LC3 model where you get things like 17-inch alloys, roof rails, fog lamps, climate control, cruise control, Bluetooth and Smart Entry and Start system. Then on the LC4 you will find triple-zone climate control, 18-inch wheels, powered folding third row seats, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable heated front seats, dusk-sensing headlights, auto-dimming rear-view mirrors, rear parking monitor, 17-speaker JBL premium audio package and a hard disc drive (HDD) navigation system with a 10GB sound library.
The LC5 trim level as the top of the range model has Adaptive Variable Suspension with Active height Control, sunroof, Crawl Control, Multi-terrain Monitor, Steering Angle Display, Multi-terrain Select and a rear seat entertainment system for DVD playback and gaming in addition to the mentioned features above.
