New 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser 250 (Prado) – Legendary SUV
New 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser 250 (Prado) – Legendary SUV Toyota has taken the wraps off the all-new Land Cruiser J250, which will get the ‘Prado’ suffix in certain international markets.
The new-gen 250 measures 4,920mm in length, 1980 mm in width, 1,870mm in height, and has a 2,850mm long wheelbase. The ground clearance is 221 mm. Dimensionally, it is bigger than the previous car.
The new Land Cruiser 250 is based on the TGNA-F platform, which it shares with the Lexus GX. The design is heavily inspired by the original Land Cruiser 70 with boxy and upright proportions. The front carries a rugged-looking metallic mesh grille with the Toyota lettering on it, this grille extends to the lower half which houses the skid plate. The headlamp housings are rectangular and come with LED units, as well as a single bar of LED daytime running light.
Around the back, the Land Cruiser ditches a full-width light bar in favor of simple, squared-off taillights on the corners. The design is delightfully free of frippery, and the full-size spare tire is tucked up nice and clean underneath the rear bumper.
the interior of the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser 250 will come in a huge variety of material choices and sets of features. There will be versions that are catered for more utilitarian use, while higher-end variants will come with premium features like ventilated front seats, a 12.3-inch infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a fully-digital instrument cluster, and even the full Toyota Safety Sense suite of advanced driver-assistance systems such as automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane centering, blind spot warning, just to name a few.
