2010 Toyota Prado debuts first in Europe
The 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado officially debuted in the United Kingdom, even while shipments of the new model are sitting on GCC ports as local dealers wait for stocks of the old model to be cleared.
The body-on-frame 4×4 retains much of the features made the outgoing model popular. Features in the top British version include a 14-speaker CD stereo with hard drive, optional adaptive air suspension, and three-row seating apparently now with a fold-flat last row.
While the Europeans only get a 3.0-litre turbodiesel, models coming to the UAE will surely get a 275 hp 4.0-litre V6, if not also the 2.7-litre inline-4. A 3-door version is expected to debut later.
The Euro-spec 2010 Toyota Prado is expected to fully debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, while some of our readers in Qatar and Saudi Arabia say we will get the GCC-spec version in November this year.
