Toyota Land Cruiser gets a refresh in Europe

Toyota Land Cruiser gets a refresh in Europe

The exterior changes to the Prado include a new hood, fenders, grille, headlamps, tail-lights, wheels and front bumper.

Toyota has taken the opportunity to introduce a facelifted Land Cruiser SUV at the Frankfurt Motor Show, with an updated design, a refreshed interior, plus new safety and infotainment technology.

Can the Land Cruiser still cut it against fresher SUVs?

A model year update then hardly needs to be revolutionary - some new safety tech here, a bumper nip 'n tuck there - and that's exactly what this 2017 vehicle delivers. There's also a new eight-inch, full-color multimedia screen. 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. Another option for buyers is the choice of manual or automatic transmissions.

Today, Kjellberg said the N-word slipped out in the heat of the moment, though he was disappointed with himself for saying it. At the very least, PewDiePie was quick enough to offer a "proper" apology this time around without trying to blame the media.


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

For example the bonnet is now shaped to help visibility at the centre and the top of each wing is higher to help you locate the car's extremities. In profile, the auto looks different thanks to a taller front bumper plus realigned wing lines and bumpers, all on the same horizontal axis.

New taillight clusters and a smaller rear number plate garnish complete the look. 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.

Is it still king of the mountains?

Each challenge that presents itself is another hurdle. "We haven't taken our foot off the gas since 2008", Joshua concluded. The 2012 Olympic gold medalist's trainer, Rob McCracken, afterward said Joshua needed to learn from the performance.


That said, the body-on-frame construction does lend itself to strength and durability, and the car's all-terrain system has been created to allow even unskilled drivers to make the most its off-road performance.

More significant tweaks lie under the skin, where Toyota's Safety Sense driver assistance pack is now standard across the Prado range, bringing a collision avoidance package with autonomous emergency braking and a blind spot monitor to every model.

The Toyota Land Cruiser has grown to become quite the behemoth when compared to earlier generations.
