2016 Toyota Prado engine, price
With a lineage starting from 1951, the Land Cruiser from Toyota has developed itself as a brand for providing both on and off-road vehicles. The upcoming 2016 Toyota Prado will focus more on off-road driving experience by providing superior powertrain, enhanced body structure and best in class comfort elements to go with it. Due to a recent facelift, this model will not go through any extensive modifications but will feature some absolute necessities to carve out a name of its own in the automobile world.

This engine will be coupled with either a 6-speed auto transmission or a 6-speed manual transmission unit.

2016 Toyota Prado: Redesign Exterior and Interior
The exterior of 2016 Toyota Prado will remain largely the same but will feature slightly modified bumpers and redesigned grille. Changes incorporated in its bumper will enable this car to produce less noise, which is necessarily a very welcome change since its predecessor was quite a noisy one. The car will increase in length, thus possibly increasing the chances of having a more spacious cabin. Spare tyres will be repositioned at its tailgate.
Most of the changes talked about will be inside of the 2016 Prado. Mainly focusing on the car’s comfort factor, the company will now introduce leather covered seats and soft to touch plastic material for premium trim models. Otherwise, hard plastic is employed to cover its dashboard and other interior tools.
Technological upgrades over the predecessor of 2016 Toyota Prado would most likely include massage system seats, automatic climate control, satellite navigation as well as great audio system like never before. On premium trim levels, aluminium and wood based decorations have been incorporated to boost up this car’s luxury quotient.
