Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is a mid-size four-wheel drive vehicle in the Toyota Land Cruiser range. It is produced by the Japanese car maker, Toyota. The Prado is one of the smaller vehicles in the range. The 2014 Prado is based on Toyota’s J150 platform.

The Prado may also be referred to as Land Cruiser LC70, LC90, LC120, and LC150 depending on the platform.

In North America, the Prado is not part of the Land Cruiser range; the Toyota 4Runner replaces the Prado with basic trim while the rebadged Lexus GX occupies the Prado’s position in luxury trim. The GX uses practically identical body panels and V8 engine.

Prados have ladder frames, two-speed transfer boxes and rear beam axles. The J70 platform has a front beam axle while the J90, J120, and J150 platforms have front independent suspension.

As of 2014, the LC Prado is available in every Toyota market, except, the US, Canada (both available as the Lexus GX), Mexico, and South Korea.

The fourth generation has been available in some markets since October 2009. There are two base variants, five-door and three-door. The five door variant in the general market is offered in TXL & VXL grades – which are much more option packed. This generation of Prado features advanced 4WD and an array of electronic gadgets. This generation of the Prado is offered in the US badged as the 2010 model year Lexus GX 460 with luxury trim.

Depending on the market, the fourth generation is available with an under-floor mounted or rear door mounted spare wheel. For example, UK vehicles have the spare wheel mounted under the floor, while in Australia and Argentina the spare wheel is mounted on the rear door, leaving space for an auxiliary fuel tank, which is desirable in countries where long journeys in isolated areas may be required. The fuel capacity of the dual tank series four is 150 L compared to 179 L of the series three.

The removable third row three-seaters of the J120 were replaced by fold-into-floor seats which seat only two people – which is also responsible for a loss of cargo capacity, the reduction in dual fuel capacity and usable height in the cargo compartment.

On the higher end VX and Kakadu models, there are six camera positions enabling viewing to the front and down, to the side both front and rear, and to the rear. The engine remained the same, although the automatic gear change points were altered for maximum fuel economy rather than maximum performance, even in Sports mode.
