  • New Prado

    http://www.themotorreport.com.au/576...-vx-and-kakadu

    Check out the new Prado, FM ive never seen anything more ugly than that. Prados used to be half decent looking but god forbid, what were they thinking . In fact Toyo should sack all their designers & start again.!

    It is about time they updated the ugly dashboard, but that front end, not a fan yet.... And I know the engine is ok but they should've updated it at the same time....

            HA! HA! HA! Dats phunny. Maybe some truth to it. Seems to be also inspired by JEEP looking at those vertical teeth. Never have liked those bulging plastic headlight lenses and they have reused them again.

                I think so too. The 120 series is, IMO, a great looking vehicle, and the 4L V6 is awesome. Shame about the diesels....

                    Agreed, they are a good looking vehicle , all downhill since then though.

                      Well with a front end like that it will be a real challenge to design a bull bar that does not look like Dame Edna's glasses! or 2 pram handles!

                      cheers old Jack.

                        Unless you spend over $100k on Road you'll miss out on the KDSS suspension, without it the Prado is a Poor Drive indeed!

                          Who ever quoted you over $100k for a Kakadu is having a lend, that is 200 series VX/Sahara territory at that money. On road for mid-high 80's.

                          Had a look on the Toyota website and there is no mention of KDSS on the facelifted model, so maybe its been dropped. They arent that bad to drive though. Have driven a relatives 150 GXL and it was ok, bit more body roll than my Paj, but a lot better than a Cruiser without KDSS. Good driving position for my large frame too. Would never own a 150 though.

                              The pricing I have seen fr the kakadu is around 96 k excluding on road. So well over a 100k with on roads and a couple of boxes ticked on the accesory list!.

                              The way the bumper meets the front guards, I would be surprized if there will be any front bars available.
