What we have first noticed when it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota Prado is the sense of power and stability this model gives away. With numerous changes in features and details, this SUV has also tried to enhance aerodynamics, which will also reflect on its efficiency and fuel consumption. The front end of the vehicle has been significantly redesigned with a new chrome grille and more aggressive bumper. It will also get a new set of halogen headlights. Looking at the side profile, the new Prado will be standing on 17-inch alloy wheels that will be placed further from the doors than on the previous model. The door handles will also be redesigned. In the back, this SUV will have a redesigned rear bumper and the LED taillights. It has been said that the Prado will probably be available in four trims and few new paint colors.
The interior of the 2019 Toyota Prado offers the ultimate comfort and pleasure. Its spacious and trendy cabin will provide three rows of seats that will be able to accommodate seven passengers. The seats will be covered in natural leather and will, hopefully, be heated, supportive and adjustable. Inside the new Prado, you can also expect a brand-new dashboard and an upgraded instrument cluster. There will be a TFT display with basic data and an 8-inch touch screen with infotainment system. This means that the Prado will offer you options such as navigation, air conditioning, dual-zone climate control, audio system, various types of connectivity and other forms of entertainment. Safety features will not be left out either and some of them will include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, airbags, lane departure warning, radar guided cruise control and automatic high beams.
When it comes to engine of the 2019 Toyota Prado, it has been said that two options are being considered. The first of them could come with either 3.0 or 4.0-liter V-6 engine able to deliver up to 170 horsepower. The other, and more probable, will get a 2.9-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine that will be able to produce around 180 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. It will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive system.
