Spy shots showing the 2013 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado popping up in China. The drastic facelift includes a giant new grille, new headlights, new bumpers, and new rear lights. The result is very interesting indeed. The facelifted Prado will be launched on the China car market just before the end of this year.
The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is made in China by the FAW-Toyota joint venture. Price starts at 538.000 yuan and ends at 698.000 yuan. Lone engine is a 4.0 V6 with 282hp and 385nm, mated to a 5-speed automatic. The engine will continue in the facelifted Prado and price will be about the same.
New rear lights look very interesting as well.
The Prado is not a very popular car in China, considered too expensive and too old fashioned by Chinese car buyers. Sadly, it seems unlikely that the facelift will turn things around.
