These 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Renders Could Be Very Close To Reality

Toyota is working on a facelift for the Land Cruiser Prado and Instagramer Hamad1two3 has posted some rendering of what the model could look like.

If the pictures are accurate, the model will be equipped with a new front fascia which eschews the cartoonish headlights of the current model. The SUV also has a more aggressive front bumper, a restyled grille, and new fog lights. The rear end largely carries over but there’s updated taillights, a new tailgate, and a modestly revised bumper.

Moving into the cabin, the images suggest drivers will find a new center stack with revised controls and updated switchgear. There also appears to be a new instrument cluster and an updated infotainment system.

While the renderings aren’t definitive, Hamad1two3 has previously leaked photos of facelifted Toyota Land Cruiser and Lexus LX. This could suggest he has some insider information but nothing is official as of yet.

Regardless, the facelifted Land Cruiser Prado will reportedly be unveiled in September and come equipped with an assortment of Toyota Safety Sense systems. Nothing is official but the model is expected to have automatic high beam headlights, radar cruise control, a pre-collision warning system with pedestrian detection, and a lane departure warning system with steering assist.

    They look more like leaked photos than renders to me.

      Exactly, they are leaked photos of a prototype. If the author of this article had done better research or made a better observation, he would notice only one of these is a rendering from a Japanese magazine.

      The rendered Prado painted in grey, is based on internal Toyota Japan photography of a silver Prado, front and rear. The studio setting is identical to that of the Land Cruiser facelift leaks from 2015, obviously the real deal. Only a lazy blogger from an Indian car blog, assumed it was not real.

      Thank you for this comment/post Matt.

        Off topic but know you’re usually informed-Infiniti dealers were just told QX70 cancelled-whats happening with replacement? Seems odd to cancel then reintroduce. Pathetic to exit hottest segment in industry….

    Why does Japanese car design have to look so damn funky, weird, and incongruent with the functional nature of cars? Its like they’re trying to make them look like something other than cars. Styling is always so overdone. Only Mazda has some handsome designs today and most argue they look “Italian” rather than Japanese. They have a few beauties no doubt (NSX, 5th gen RX7, 300ZX, 3000GT, etc), but most try their hardest to just look wacky, different, and unnatural. I mean Honda’s are great cars, but have you seen what they’ve done with the Civic Type R? Look at Lexus. Look at Infiniti’s wacky looking things. Is there a Nissan that doesn’t look weird outside of the GTR? This Lexus/Toyota is just more of the same design philosophy…lets make it look like anything but the incredibly capable offroad vehicle that it is.

    How very ugly. How very Toyota

    Toyota’s the only left real 4×4 manufacturer. The 150 and 200 series LC are the last one standing. I wish Nissan made a real tough successor to the y61 Patrol.

  • KidRed

    hahaha, that ugly front end though…like an updated, blockey master control.
