2023 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Engine is Something To Look For – As more of its competitors increase the size of their engines and crank up the power, the Prado is said to be the next vehicle to get a bigger engine. According to reports, the 3.3-liter twin-turbo diesel engine now found in the Land Cruiser 300 Series is expected to make its way into the next-generation Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.
According to the Japanese motoring website Best Car Web, the Prado is scheduled to debut in August 2022, which means the much-loved 444 will likely arrive in Australia later that year or even in 2023. The third-generation Ford Everest, which is very sure to debut with a turbodiesel V6, would be better suited to take on the new-generation Prado if it were outfitted with the beefier powerplant.
According to the official website, a four-wheel-drive vehicle with a powerful engine, the Toyota Land Cruiser, debuted on the market in August 1951 as the “Toyota BJ,” according to the company’s official website.
Since then, they has worked to ensure the safety and security of many consumers and other persons who interact with the vehicle.
Throughout the world, the Land Cruiser has helped people live better lives, supported their livelihoods, and helped them achieve their full potential by promising to drive them anywhere they want to go while still guaranteeing their safety.
After years of research and development, the Land Cruiser’s core characteristics of “reliability, durability, & off-road capability” have been refined based on the actual usage scenarios experienced by its customers throughout the world. Customers in more than 170 nations and areas worldwide enjoy an annual production of more than 300,000 units.
What’s New in this Version?
However, it is expected that the Land Cruiser 300 Series engine will be detuned for the Prado, as it delivers 227kW of power and 700Nm of torque.
The Prado will most likely be built on the TNGA-F platform, which also supports the new Land Cruiser and maybe the next-generation Hilux truck.
The Land Cruiser’s V6 engine and underpinnings are already shared with Toyota’s full-size pickup, the Tundra, offered in North America.
According to Best Car Web, the Prado’s body size is projected to remain mostly unchanged from previous generations, with a length of 4850mm and a width of roughly 1890mm.
That engine is the LandCruiser 300 Series’ 3.3-liter turbodiesel V6. It delivers 227kW of power and 700Nm of torque in that application coupled to a 10-speed automated transmission. It’ll adopt the revolutionary TNGA-F body-on-frame architecture, just like its bigger brother.
In Australia, Toyota last sold a six-cylinder Prado in 2017, but it was a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter petrol V6 with 207kW and 381Nm. If the 3.3-liter Prado is released, it will represent a massive increase in power above the existing Prado’s 2.8-liter turbodiesel four, which produces 150kW and 500Nm.
It’ll also face competition from the revamped Ford Everest, which will almost definitely borrow the 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 from the related, updated Ranger when it debuts next year. When this engine was in the F-150, it made 190kW and 597Nm. The Ranger hasn’t been confirmed to have the same machine. The Toyota can outmatch the Ford if the LandCruiser’s engine isn’t detuned for this purpose in the Prado.
That could also help keep Prado at the top of the sales lists for the foreseeable future. If you want to buy a large SUV, this is the best-selling model from VFACTS since 2014. At first, the Jeep Grand Cherokee took the top spot.
There is little other diesel V6 competition, as the Grand Cherokee’s 2022 WL redesign eliminates this option.
The Volkswagen Touareg has a turbodiesel V6 engine, but unlike the Prado, it does not have a third row of seats.
The fourth-generation Toyota Land Cruiser Prado debuted in September 2009 and had two significant facelifts.
As was the case with the new Land Cruiser, the Prado hybrid option may arrive much after the conventional gasoline cars.
Toyota will debut the next-generation Land Cruiser Prado in Japan in August 2022, according to China’s Autohome, on November 24, 2021.
At the debut, the story indicated just traditional 2.5-liter gasoline and 2.8-liter diesel engine options, with no mention of a hybrid type.
Many people were excited when Japan’s Best Car revealed in August 2021 that the debut would take place in summer 2022 (June-August 2022), giving them the promise of owning a modern and compact Land Cruiser without having to spend a lot of money. However, Best Car reported in October 2021 that Toyota may delay the launch of the next-generation Prado until after the summer of 2024.
Suppose the new Prado comes out in the next couple of years. In that case, it will overlap with the ordinary Land Cruiser (which is in restricted supply and has a waiting list of more than two years).
