Go anywhere in style.
When you consider the many challenges of a modern lifestyle, dropping the kids at school can now be as treacherous as negotiating a mountain pass. Which is why Prado has been designed to provide refined comfort, rugged dependability and smooth driving, whether in town, off-road or out on the highway.
Boasting bold, contemporary and head turning style, Prado is also purpose built to give you plenty of 4WD muscle to handle the tough stuff and tow heavy loads. All smartly combined with an abundance of intelligent features and outstanding creature comforts to help make sure you’ll always arrive safe, refreshed and relaxed, whatever the destination.

Beauty never looked so tough.
The highly refined exterior lines of Prado have not occurred by chance. Every element has been painstakingly designed to serve a specific purpose..
Functionality comes to the fore with a muscled-up front-end featuring sophisticated chrome vertical grille bars (VX and Kakadu models only). On the VX and Kakadu models, the headlamps feature stylish Daylight Running Lamps (DRLs) to give an assured presence on the road. With powerful halogen headlamps on the GX and GXL and stylish LED headlamps on the VX and Kakadu, the path ahead will be bright even on the darkest nights.
Particular attention has been paid to refi ning Prado aerodynamics. Airfl ow is effi ciently redirected around the front bumper, the tyres and wheel housings. It’s channelled under the car and over the roof to smoothly exit behind the vehicle while the aero stabilising fi ns support airfl ow past the outer mirrors and rear lights. Even air flowing through the radiator is carefully deflected to reduce turbulence.
Then should the weather take a turn for the worst, the rain sensing wipers on VX and Kakadu models will automatically spring into action.
Find everything at your command.
Cast your eyes forward from within Prado, and you’ll notice every feature and control has been placed for maximum practicality and visibility.
On Kakadu models the centre console incorporates the controls for all off-road functions, so it’s easy to select what you need, precisely when you need to. At the flick of a switch, Kakadu’s Drive Mode Select lets you change between five different drive modes for optimum performance in all conditions. Every switch is illuminated to catch your eye in all driving conditions.
An electroluminescent combimeter with enhanced backlighting presents vital information to drivers in the GX and GXL (automatic only), VX and Kakadu. It features a colour Multi Information Display (MID) with four separate zones of information, including trip information, ride and transmission settings, outside and travel conditions and details of many vehicle operations and drive functions.
All models come with satellite navigation1 as standard, so wherever you’re heading, you’ll find it a breeze to get there.
Comfort to master every situation.
Whether in traffic, out in the wild, on holiday or a family weekend away, you’ll always be travelling first class in Prado. It begins with Smart Entry and Start system, allowing you to unlock and get going while the key remains in your pocket or bag.
Gently grip the premium steering wheel on the GXL, VX and Kakadu, and you’ll find the switches for cruise control, audio and phone functions at your fingertips.
You’ll always stay snug in heated front and second-row seats in the Kakadu and VX. Then when things start heating-up, air-conditioning with a clean-air filter will keep you cool, featuring automatic tri-zone comfort on GXL, VX and Kakadu models, including a separate rear control panel.
With a minimum of six and a maximum of fourteen speakers, Prado sounds as good as it looks. Experience breathtaking audio quality from CD, radio and your iPod®2, as well as advanced connectivity via Bluetooth®3 with audio streaming or via a USB input.4 And all can be operated using simple touchscreen control.
Rear passengers in the Kakadu can also enjoy video entertainment provided by the integrated Blu-ray player with a large 9" colour monitor, while listening on wireless headphones. The luxurious touches even extend to a cool box in the Kakadu centre console with space for four 500ml bottles.
Now go and get rough.
When the time comes to farewell the bitumen and head off-road, Prado is built to take you there and safely back again. With Variable Flow Control (VFC) power steering, you’ll always have the ideal feel and level of assistance to suit the conditions.
The double wishbone front and 5-link rear suspension provide excellent handling stability and comfort even when the going gets rough. The Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS) on the Kakadu model hydraulically controls the suspension to provide gentler behaviour. The Adaptive Variable Suspension system (AVS) on the Kakadu also allows you to choose from three modes to dampen the shock absorbers to suit particular driving conditions.
You’ll also appreciate the advanced off-road assistance of Active Traction Control (A-TRC) to eliminate wheel spin on slippery surfaces by automatically distributing the power to the tyres with the best grip. When faced with heading up or down steep slopes, Hill-start Assist Control (HAC)5 and Downhill Assist Control (DAC)5 (both available on automatic only) will help reduce rolling backwards or descending too fast and getting out of shape.
The Kakadu also features crawl control6 to allow you to maintain a low constant speed on challenging surfaces by automatically and independently controlling both engine power and brake input to each wheel. The Multi-Terrain Select system (MTS) on Kakadu is an evolution of the A-TRC function and allows you to select grip assistance according to the terrain. Plus the rear differential lock, available on GXL (automatic), VX and Kakadu, can be activated to further optimise grip.
Keeping you in touch with the situation, the Multi-Terrain Monitor (MTM)7 on VX and Kakadu allows the driver to get a close look at the conditions right around the vehicle.
The power and the glory.
Every Prado is equipped with a 2.8 litre Turbo diesel engine, delivering a silky smooth 130kW of direct-injected power8 and an awesome 450Nm of torque8 (automatic only), so you’ll have the grunt to tackle the muddiest trails. Make the most of Prado’s 3,000kg braked towing capacity9 (automatic models), with peace of mind that you’ve got all the muscle you ever need for all your adventures.
Even with such impressive performance, this engine also delivers sufficient fuel efficiency with 8.0L/100km for the automatic transmission10 and 7.9L/100km for the manual transmission,10,11 or around 1,700km per tank, for the 6-speed manual transmission.
Wherever your Prado takes you, an incredible array of safety features will protect you. The ‘Safe T-Cell’ body is designed to take impact from
the front, rear and sides. Seven SRS airbags, including full-length side
curtain-shield airbags, help provide you with all round protection.
Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Traction Control (TRC) work together to help correct any potential oversteer or understeer when cornering, while Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) automatically puts more braking force on the wheels that need it most. If you’re towing, Trailer Sway Control (TSC) uses sensors to suppress sway triggered by elements including wind, bumpy roads and the steering operation.
The reversing camera5 provides clear vision of what’s behind, with a Back Guide Monitor (BGM) on the Kakadu. On the GXL, VX and Kakadu, parking sensors5 signal how close you are to any obstacle, and on the VX and Kakadu, Blind Spot Monitor5 (BSM) uses radar to provide a visual warning if another vehicle is hidden in a blind spot, while Rear Cross Traffic Alert5 (RCTA) warns you of approaching traffic when reversing out of a parking space. The Panoramic View Monitor on the VX and Kakadu also provides a handy birds eye view display of the areas around your vehicle, making manouvering a breeze.
