2010 Toyota Prado real photo leaked

2010-toyota-prado
As pointed out by Akif, one of our readers, a real photo of the 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado has been leaked onto the internet. The photo appears to be real, and has “internal use only” marked across it.

The 2010 Toyota Prado seems to be following the styling pattern set by the bulbous new-for-2008 Land Cruiser. Engine choices should be very similar to the current offerings, including an upgraded 2.7-litre 4-cylinder and a variation of the existing 4.0-litre V6.

The current version is actually a rather flawless design, but it is so common that it is now as eye-catching as a garbage-bin, no matter how much their owners paid for one. The upcoming new model features hit-and-miss styling, but it should be fresh for at least a year, before it becomes invisible again. Expect a UAE launch by the end of this year.

Update: Visit the Toyota Prado buyer guide for UAE prices and GCC specs.

    Looks like they just did a LC to the prado….i.e almost the same, just a little changes here and there….Though I really feel this is a just a photoshop where some person has pasted LC bits onto a prado…especially when I look at the rear light…

  • prado the great

    although i am great fan of the prado it has some flaws…

    1)the seats r not that comfortable or supportive. it become an issue on long journeys

    2) ride though much better than a pajero or nissan pathfinder could have been improved considering the “premuim” customers pay.

    the new designed seems sticking to the tried and tested formula, it is more muscular and better defined but a conservative one which is great which is what family buyers look into

    not sure whether this is real or just the current version digitally amended..

    also not sure whether i like the design (looks too much like the old one).

    but then again, also the all new 08 LC had to grown on me for the first 6 months..

    will be a quality SUV, that is pretty much given.

    any idea about UAE pricings???

    http://burnyourfuel.com/My_Files/Toyota/Prado/2010-toyota-prado.jpg
    which looks similar to the real pictures on top.

    Spoke to one of the sales execs here at AlFuttaim- Toyota and I was told that the 2010 model could come as soon as this coming Sept.-Oct.

    I think Toyota is trying to make a design the people going to recongize it as a Toyota example like the BMW if you took away it logo you would know it a BMW.

    This is a type of marketing thingy. Some product are even design to be recognize it when it is broken into pieces.

    Hey Mash,
    Any idea if these latest pics have been taken from the GCC? The side graphics usually appear on Omani Toyotas.
    I think they’ve messed up the rear lights but then again it may be a case of getting used to in time. The front lights remind me of the Lexus LX570… Nice

    The Prado VX is the 4.0L V6 version and has different variations and the one that has only single fuel tank is the one which has the spare tire mounted below the frame. This is the upper grades of Prado, especially those who dont prefer to take it off road but want more high tech features. I guess this may not be the case with the new Prado, since in LC200, they have combined the two fuel tank into one and can still have frame mounted spare wheel and door mounted too.

    To me the older one looks better, but bein a Toyota even this Chinese Design should sell..

    @ Sting316:
    The Prado with the wheel at the tailgate has an option of having an additional fuel tank (Total tank capacity of upto 180 litres). Some do need this additional capacity and would prefer to have the wheel stowed away neatly underneath the vehicle (as is the case with most of the new 4×4 vehicles in the market). Standard fuel tank capacity of the Prado is some 90 litres approx.

    Actually I was planned to buy T. Prado 2009 model VX. Fortunately-or-unfortunately I could not, due to some other reasons. But now I really dropped the plan when the new model came out. Its just a xerox copy of land cruiser and Looks are also changed a lot especially fron grill, tale lamp,alloy design..etc..front grill was giving a rude look for this car and that was an advantage of these kind of cruisers.
    Guys, just enjoy and give the feedback about the new ruler of deserts.

    By the way what is the price (6 cyl/4ltr)of new model prado?

    Thanks for your valuable comments…

    This one looks like a LC which has smaller demensions and a 2010 Prado grille. So, this means that the 2010 Prado is more likely to have a V8 option and better off road capabilities. The same case is also there on the 07 Camry and the 08 Corolla. Some can easily mistake the camry 4 a corolla or vice versa.Any way, I like this one, a smaller LC

    I have some info on the new Prado ( 150 series)
    Firstly there will be a long and short wheel base ( so a 2 door version) They range from the GX, GXL, VX and Kakadu ( replaces the Grande)and the 2 door version will be the SX and ZR. Prices will be very similar to current rage however dont know the new 2 version price. They have introduced a new color “Metal storm” which is inbetween the Graphite and Ebony (Black)It has many more features than the currents models and will be a sucess I think

    What a dissappointment! The existing model is more muscular and dynamic looking than the new one. The new one is just a blown up version of RV 4 and does not stand out from the looks of Klugger and Landcruiser. I think TOYOTA has made a mistake in this design and it’s going to lose some of the SUV market share as a result.
