The extensive leak of America’s compact Land Cruiser, expected to be next Prado, appeared online overnight
Images of the US-market verison of the next-generation Toyota Land Cruiser Prado product have leaked overnight, apparently via the Kurdistan Automotive Blog Instagram page.
Chasing Cars understands that the leaked images are genuine. A full reveal of the US-market Land Cruiser, which is the basis of the next Land Cruiser Prado, will occur later today.
The leaked images reveal a dramatic aesthetic switch for the Prado-sized Land Cruiser, which adopts squared-off styling cues and retro front-end detailing. It is understood to share its dimensions and hard points with the incoming Lexus GX that is confirmed for Australia.
It is expected that a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain will be offered with the Prado, especially in the United States – but also locally – while diesel power will almost certainly persist in Australia.
Kurdistan Automotive Blog claims that the vehicle uses a 243kW/630Nm version of Toyota’s 2.4-litre turbocharged petrol-electric parallel hybrid engine, dubbed i-Force Max in the US.
Leaked photographs of the interior show a cabin that references a number of retro elements while folding in some concepts from the Land Cruiser 300 Series. The infotainment appears to be Toyota’s latest suite, utilising a large 12.3-inch touchscreen in the centre of a squared-off dash.
Two trim grades appear to be shown in the leaked images.
More to come later today.
