Toyota Land Cruiser Prado to miss out on more grunt: New HiLux engine upgrade won’t make it to off-road SUV
The Toyota LandCruiser Prado’s 2.8-litre diesel engine will miss out on the performance boost coming to the updated HiLux, with Toyota confirming there is currently “no plan” to update the off-road SUV’s outputs.
But it seems those changes won’t make their way into the Prado anytime soon, with a Toyota spokesperson telling CarsGuide there was no plan to release an updated model in the short term.
“While we would never rule it out, we have nothing to announce at this stage,” the spokesperson said.
Still, LandCruiser shoppers with a thirst for more power will have other options at their disposal in the not-too-distant future, with the 300 Series expected to arrive next year packing a new V6 diesel engine with outputs that should meet or exceed the 200kW and 650Nm on offer from the current V8 diesel in the 200 Series.
