Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

With its rugged body-on-frame construction, heavy duty hardware and new-age technology that enable it to crawl over obstacles, the Prado is not for pretenders.
To be fair, the Prado is far from rudimentary. It feels solid on the road at highway speeds and around town, although you quickly learn to take roundabouts a little more gingerly because of the tendency for big, tall and heavy 4WDs like this to lean in corners.
The new engine is a worthwhile freshen-up for the Prado but doesn't suddenly transform the vehicle.

Likes
New diesel engine is more refined
Long range due to better economy and 150L tanks
Genuine off-road ability

Dislikes
Towing capacity unchanged at 2500kg
The price is high, especially on top end models
Interior design starting to look a little dated

Cast an eye over the SUV market and you’ll see very few truly off-road capable vehicles. One of them is the Toyota LandCruiser Prado, and here we’ve got the most capable Prado of all, the top-shelf Kakadu.The LandCruiser Prado Kakadu is a very good off-the-shelf off-roader, with its blend of both tradi-tional and modern off-road equipment. With decent all-terrain or mud-terrain tyres (which nearly all standard SUVs would need) we reckon the Kakadu could go just about anywhere.
