Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) quietly launches the 2021 Land Cruiser Prado which features the new 2.8-liter 1GD-FTV inline-4 turbo diesel engine which is also used on select variants of the new Fortuner and Hilux. This is quite a step up from its previously acquired 3.0-liter 1KD-FTV engine, therefore rewarding this full-size SUV with uprated figures than before.
In terms of looks, the Prado still features that familiar exterior layout, therefore maintaining its boxy profile along with several hints of ruggedness that’s stashed with a bit of elegance. On the inside, it’s quite the same story actually, as the overall cabin remained the same as well, though it’s actually not a bad thing at all, as the Prado already has that well-appointed interior and it does remain quite pleasing up to this time.
When its refreshed model arrived here back in 2017, we were expecting the 2.8 unit to make its way here, unfortunately, the model only came in with the 3.0-liter motor. Now, it’s about time TMP brought in this smaller engine for the Prado, and it’s definitely better late than never. Now, talking figures, this 2.8-liter 1GD-FTV inline-4 turbodiesel churns out a heftier 201 hp and 500 Nm of torque. As mentioned, the following numbers are indeed a step up from the previous 163 hp and 410 Nm of torque produced by the previous 3.0-liter turbo diesel.
Notably, the 4.0-liter V6 gasoline engine remains available, with it being able to produce 271 hp and 381 Nm of torque. In terms of transmission, the 2.8-liter turbo diesel is paired with a 6-speed automatic gearbox while the 4.0-liter V6 gasoline engine is then mated to a 6-speed automatic with Sequential Shift.
The diesel variant now retails at P4,170,000 while the gasoline variant costs P3,369,000. Want to buy this vehicle without leaving the comfort of your home? Try our 'Buy Online' feature and just fill-up the necessary details for your online transaction.
