Toyota facelifts Land Cruiser SUV for 2018 at Frankfurt Motor Show

2017 Frankfurt Motor Show Toyota Land Cruiser image

Following a drawn-out lead-up, which included countless spy images and leaked brochures of the burly off-roader, Toyota has used the Frankfurt motor show to detail changes including a re-worked exterior design, updated interior and added technology. In profile, the auto looks different thanks to a taller front bumper plus realigned wing lines and bumpers, all on the same horizontal axis. It's now 60 millimeters (2.3 inches) longer than its predecessor, and comes with 17 to 19 inches alloy wheels as well as LED technology for the brake lights.

Changes to the robust vehicle include styling enhancements to give it a more modern but durable look, a higher quality interior and driving improvements.

Inside, Toyota has updated the presentation of the dashboard, instrument binnacle and switchgear. LED ambient lighting also makes the cut. The SUV will be offered with a new multimedia complex Toyota Touch 2 c increased to eight inches touch display.

The Prado benefits from the most noticeable changes, including a heavily revised front-end featuring a new bonnet, grille and headlamps that replace the cascading, nearly droopy snout of the current model.

Here are 5 maps that show Hurricane Irma's path to Florida
Upon leaving Florida, a weakened Irma is expected to push into Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and beyond. Chris Lynne and James Tanner Schaill became trapped after they had dropped off an elderly patient at the hospital.

The novelty will be available with a package of security system Toyota Safety Sense, including the function of prevention of frontal collisions, with the possibility of recognition of pedestrians and control system "dead" zones, enforcement of lane traffic, and adaptive cruise control.

There is no word from Toyota about bringing the new Land Cruiser Prado to India. As far as motivation is concerned, the Land Cruiser can be had with a 2.8-liter, four-cylinder diesel packing 177 hp (133 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque, linked to six speed manual or automatic - and the SUV can top out at 109 miles per hour (175 kph). Eastern European markets also get the option of 2.7 and 4.0-litre petrol engines but there appear to now be no plans to offer these engines to United Kingdom buyers.

The Land Cruiser retains its single engine choice, a 2.8-litre turbodiesel with 178hp and 370Nm of torque.
