The Land Cruiser Prado 2024, a symbol of reliability since 1951, makes a retro-inspired return. Unveiling 10 key features, it promises style, adventure, and reliability for UAE drivers.

Introduction

When it comes to conquering uncharted territories, the Land Cruiser has been the epitome of reliability and durability since its inception in 1951. Now, with the impending arrival of the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado in the UAE, Toyota is taking a bold step back to its retro roots, delivering a vehicle that not only defines lifestyle choices but also fulfills practical needs. Here, we delve into the 10 key aspects you should be aware of before making the decision to purchase the Land Cruiser Prado 2024.

1. Distinct Front-End Designs

The New Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 2024 boasts two distinct front-end designs. The standard Prado features a retro-modern facia with squarish headlamps, while the special edition, known as the First Edition, limited to only 5000 units globally, sports round headlamps reminiscent of Toyota's past SUVs like the FJ Cruiser.

 

2. Off-Road Prowess and Platform 

Built on the same TNGA-F platform as the LandCruiser 300 series Toyota Tacoma and the Lexus GX, the Prado Toyota 2024 inherits underpinnings from its big brother and sibling, resulting in dramatically improved off-road performance. This not only makes it a reliable off-road companion but also enhances ease of handling and comfort for on-road driving while being an SUV built on a leader frame chassis.

3. Structural Strength Reinvented

Featuring a remarkable 50% increase in frame rigidity and a substantial 30% increase in overall rigidity, the all-new 2024 Prado promises a more robust and durable vehicle structure. This reinforces its position as a reliable choice for those seeking both adventure and everyday practicality.

 

4. Electric Power Steering and Lane Tracing Assist

The introduction of Electric Power Steering in the 2024 Toyota Prado marks a significant enhancement. This feature contributes to reduced loss of steering control during off-road adventures, provides a crisper steering feel, improves maneuverability at low speeds, and enables Lane Tracing Assist for added safety on the road.

5. Improved Suspension Performance

The Toyota Prado 2024 not only exhibits improved basic suspension performance but also emphasizes wheel articulation—a key indicator of off-road prowess. This feature defines the vehicle's ability to keep its tires on the ground, ensuring stability in challenging terrains.

 

6. Optimized Visibility for On- and Off-Road Driving

Achieving good forward visibility through a low-set cowl and instrument panel top surface, the Prado 2024 ensures safe on- and off-road driving. The series combines improved off-road performance with a shorter mirror-to-mirror width, guaranteeing excellent maneuverability.

7. Innovative Stabilizer Disconnect Mechanism (SDM)

The Toyota Prado 2024 introduces the Stabilizer Disconnect Mechanism (SDM), a switch-operated function that enables changes in the front stabilizer state. This innovation delivers optimal driving performance and ride comfort when off-road while ensuring handling stability on-road.

 

8. Two Powertrain Options for the Middle East

In the Middle East, the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 2024 offers two powerful engine options. The 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder, pushing 204hp and 500Nm of peak torque, and the 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol, pushing 281hp and 430Nm of peak torque, both paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, cater to diverse preferences and driving needs.

9. Aesthetics and Interior Functionality

Employing horizontal lines to replicate the unique Land Cruiser's boxy silhouette, the Prado 2024's exterior styling speaks to its heritage with a length of 4925mm, a width of 1980mm, a height of 1870mm, and a wheelbase of 2850mm. The interior, shifting from a high-end, luxury ambiance to true off-road functionality, ensures a sturdy and stable space and has a 12.3-inch touchscreen showcases the newest Toyota Audio Multimedia system and Multi-Terrain Monitor. Clear and easy-to-operate switch shapes further enhance functionality, even on rough roads.

 

10. Toyota Safety Sense

The latest active safety package, Toyota Safety Sense, is standard on all new Land Cruiser grades, including the Prado 2024. With advanced and improved functions, this safety suite expands the range of detectable accidents, providing peace of mind for drivers, and ensuring enjoyable driving experiences.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Land Cruiser Prado 2024 is not just a vehicle; it's a testament to Toyota's commitment to innovation and quality. With its retro design, enhanced off-road capabilities, structural strength, and advanced safety features, it stands as a compelling choice for those seeking a blend of style, adventure, and reliability. As the UAE awaits the arrival of this iconic model in mid-2024, the Land Cruiser Prado is poised to set new standards in the world of SUVs.
