For all who live in the Middle East, know that there are two versions of the Toyota Land Cruiser; there's the original Land Cruiser, and the slightly-smaller Land Cruiser Prado. For American market, Toyota re-badges the Prado as a Lexus GX. However, the Toyota Prado has remain since 2002 unchanged. Nonetheless, the news today, that there will be an all-new 2010 Toyota Prado coming very soon.We caught spy shots today, of the new Prado, looming around car parks, in the Middle East. The car is virtually un-covered, and seems truly production-ready. As usual, Toyota has gone for a massaging routine as opposed to brute force for the exterior. A reshaped front fascia contains swoopier headlights, a vertical-bar chrome grille, and headlights that seem identical to the new 2009 Land Cruiser. he changes are minimal out back, with more pronounced tail-lights with a unique U-shaped chrome tail-light outlet. Overall though, the shape looks a mere identical to the bigger Land Cruiser.This third-generation Toyota Prado will get Toyota's new engines. Base model should get a 2.7L 4-cylinder engine, and up-scale model will get a more powerful 4.0L V6. Though expect the first apperence 4.6L V8 with 310 hp in the new 2010 Prado.Now, some pictures were spotted of the Prado, at a dealer inventory lot. So presumably, Toyota Middle East should debut the new Prado very-very soon. We'll keep you posted.
