- GX and GXL now feature blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert
- VX and Kakadu score 19-inch wheels
- Price increase between $777 to $990
After last being given an update in the back end of 2020, the Prado's biggest upgrade comes for the entry-level GX and GXL trims, now featuring blind-spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert systems – adding to the range of safety features such as active cruise control, lane departure waring and pre-collision safety systems.
Both the GX and GXL variants have been given exterior design tweaks, with chrome-accented grilles and puddle lamps, while the VX and Kakadu trim options now feature 19-inch wheels, with the designs called 'Active' and 'Prestige' respectively.
The Prado range is still powered by a 2.8-litre, four-cylinder turbo diesel producing 150kW/500Nm, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission after the manual 'box was dropped from the line-up last year.
Toyota Australia's Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations, Sean Hanley, says the safety upgrades and exterior updates will provide customers with extra value from their Prado purchase.
"We are committed to ensuring our customers benefit from the peace of mind which comes with the latest advanced safety features," said Hanley.
"These safety updates, along with the range of visual enhancements, ensure there has never been a better time to explore Australia's vast backyard in a Prado."
Toyota has sold 10,171 Prados up until the end of June this year, representing a 17.8 per cent increase over 2020 sales year to date.
