2015 Toyota Prado engines
Toyota prepared two types of drivetrains for 2015 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. We will have “VVT-i” engines as 2.7-litre 4-cylinder and a 4.0-litre V6. Both types of engines will be installed in few models with different trim levels and performances. All models will come as AWD and low-range gearing and available locking centre-differential. In Saudi Arabia market, Prado will be offered with both auto and manual gearbox. UAE market will get only vehicles with automatic transmission.
2015 Toyota Prado Trim Levels
Trim levels on the 2015 Toyota Prado will come with different types of engines. There will be offered few levels. Base one will come with 2.7-l engine. This will be called TX in KSA and EXR in UAE. Standard for this level are 17-inch steel wheels, black front grille, black power mirrors and door handles, rear spoiler, mud guards, keyless entry and 6-speaker audio system. On the security side, there are ABS with EBD and brake-assist, dual front airbags and floor-mounted spare tyre.
Next level is mid-range Prado 2.7-l. For KSA it will be called TXL and in UAE – GXR. Except same equipment as base model, this one will feature body-colored trim, side steps, leather steering wheel and shift lever. Rear parking sensors comes as standard. Difference from TLX and EXR will be that first will have front fog lamps, front bumper guard and stability control and second one for AUE – dual-zone auto a/c, cruise control and a dealer-installed auto-dimming mirror with rear camera.
In AUE we will have 2015 Toyota Prado 2.7-l in VXR trim that adds more features.
The 4.0-l Prado will also come in base, mid-range and higher-end models. Basic is called EXR in UAE and it will have similar equipment as 2.7-l with few differences. In UAE V6 Prado models will have a door-mounted spare tyre.
The TXL in KSA and GXR in UAE are mid-range Prado 4.0-l trims. These come with a tow hitch and side mouldings, while the GXR instead gets side/curtain/knee airbags.
Highest trim of 4.0-l will be marked with TXL2 in KSA and VXR in UAE. Sunroof, dual auto a/c, rear camera and aftermarket audio with navigation are standard equipment at this trim level. These will also have few differences, but will be small.
