Frankfurt 2017 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser Makes Its Public Debut

The front grille and headlamps are higher up (all the better for off-road use, apparently) while the bonnet, wing line and front and rear bumpers are now aligned for a tougher posture. As a result of these changes, the Land Cruiser Prado is now longer than the previous model.

Externally this update is described by Toyota as "more agile and dynamic", two qualities that are famously hard to quantify in sheet metal.

So, while it's been around since 1951, the Land Cruiser is slowly becoming a model in a niche - but that hasn't stopped the Japanese automaker to proudly present it in front of the worldwide audience of the Frankfurt Motor Show. Six-spoke alloy wheels will be available in sizes of 17 or 18-inches, and a new 12-spoke 19-inch wheel design will also be offered.

The cabin on the refreshed model now comes with a new dashboard, instruments and centre console, which gets a new 8.0-inch infotainment screen mounted low to improve outward visibility. Of course not - although this new auto does get the larger steering wheel from the V8 model, so you can sit in the driver's seat making duggadugga noises and pretend. The steering wheel is also new, and is shared with the V8 powered land Cruiser.

Toyota has boosted the appeal of its large Prado 4WD and HiLux pickup models with a bag full of new safety features for the 2018 model-year. The package includes a pre-collision warning system with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert and automatic high-beam.

No major changes are made under the bonnet. That means a global line-up consisting of a 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel, a 2.7-litre four-cylinder petrol and a range topping 4.0-litre V8. As far as motivation is concerned, the Land Cruiser can be had with a 2.8-liter, four-cylinder diesel packing 177 hp (133 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque, linked to six speed manual or automatic - and the SUV can top out at 109 miles per hour (175 kph).

Can the Land Cruiser still cut it against fresher SUVs?
