Not many people know, but the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado SUV has a special modification of Commercial, which is the cheapest of all trim levels, and it, in fact, is a full truck. The car is very actively sold in Britain, and local businessmen eagerly prefer it.
At the very end of 2019, Toyota rolled out a “tricked out” version of Prado Commercial, called Active. Despite the fact that the equipment of the SUV has risen several levels higher, its price is still quite sane, because it is largely due to the presence of only one modification of the engine and gearbox, as well as only two seats: located behind the backs of the driver and passenger seats partition, behind which is the cargo compartment.
Well, Active equipment brought with it a number of changes to the car. And while a 2.8-liter turbodiesel, almost 180 hp, which is paired with a 6-speed automatic, is still placed under its hood, the comfort and functionality of Prado Commercial has really reached the next level. To give for such charm will have a quite adequate amount equivalent to 42 thousand dollars for a short wheelbase and 44 for a model with 5 doors.
Inside, the sturdy SUV is equipped with the Toyota Touch 2 infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, dual-zone climate control and an audio system with nine speakers and a radio. Prado also received a reverse camera, rear parking sensors, help when starting from the mountain and help when descending.
At the same time, it left all the standard elements that can be found in the Utility specification, such as Bluetooth, cruise control, light sensor and mudguards. The options list includes a navigation system, 7- or 13-pin tow rods and an Essential Protection Pack that adds a rear bumper and rubber mats.
