2020 Toyota Prado comes as the following model of the very popular lower version of the famous Land Rover. The manufacturer obviously noticed that buyers love it large SUV, but have no money to afford it, so they made a weaker but also cheaper version for it. And that is Prado, smaller, weaker, but much more affordable for a large class of the buyers. Next year model should come with a few small changes, which do not affect the price and design of the car.
- The model has a very long list of possible engines, including the hybrid one.
- There is a luxury design of the car.
- The cabin design and equipment are still not known.
- The price could be a little lower.
We used to see this model similar to the higher class of SUVs, and 2020 Toyota Prado follows those expectations. It looks like Cadillac Escalade in overall look, but still has few luxury details like Infinity Q60. However, expect flat, large and boxy SUV in the future.
Since the manufacturer has not significantly changed the size of the car, 2020 Toyota Prado has not much changed inside of the cabin. There are few visible changes in design, whatsoever, but those are only there for following the future demands of the market. We have not seen the final version of the cabin, so there are many possible changes and new details.
Since there are so many versions of 2020 Toyota Prado, markets will get different types of engines, too. There should be offered petrol powertrain in every market, but of different power. On the other hand, some markets, like the US, should get a diesel engine, again. It is obviously not that much surprising since they used on that types of models. Finally, there could be found a hybrid version of the engine, for the first time, and only in China this time. But, first thing first.
Petrol engine could be in a few versions. The base model as most likely will be 2.7-liter petrol unit with 165 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. Do not forget 3.5-liter unit, however only in China, with 280 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. This is also the strongest and most expensive base model that this vehicle could have.
The diesel engine is more likely in the US, and it should be offered in three versions. The weakest option is with 175 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. The strongest is 3.0-liter with 105 horsepower and 170 horsepower.
Finally, a hybrid powertrain will be under the hood of 2020 Toyota Prado for the first time and it should be a combination of a 3.5-liter petrol unit and an electric motor. The manufacturer already used this engine in one of the previous SUVs.
All engines should be paired with the six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel and front-wheel driving system. However, there are many possible changes in those combinations.
