Hello reader! My name is Alexander, and you got to my channel dedicated to cars. I just love cars and constantly follow the news, as well as monitor the market. In my articles, I collect interesting selections, talk about new items and can give some advice on buying a used car.

We all know very well about the legendary TLC SUV, aka Toyota Land Crusier, aka Kruzak. Now information about the new three hundredth Kruzak periodically pops up on the network, but all this is just an assumption and there is no reliable information yet. But what there is information about is his younger brother Toyota Land Crusier Prado.
More recently, updated models have gone on sale. I note that this is already the 3rd restyling of the 150th body. Let’s look at the new product, compare the second restyling with the third, see what has changed and, of course, discuss the new prices. Interesting? Then put like, and I’ll get to the point!
Which car do you think is in the photo above? The fact that this is a Land Crusier Prado is already clear, but what kind of restyling is this? If you own a car after the second restyling, you will surely say that this is it, because the exact same car is in your garage. Oops, it’s not. Here is the third restyling of the pradik, and yes, it is practically no different from the previous one, at least outwardly. Let’s take a closer look at the novelty.
In the first photo, you are greeted by an updated version, and in the second, the previous restyling, look through and compare. Personally, I see almost no changes, except for the bumper and possibly optics, but I’m not sure about it. We go further, maybe something has changed on the side?
Of course you will excuse me. I understand that comparing cars in black and white is not very convenient, and I really would like to put photos of the car in the same color, but I couldn’t find it .. But I, alas, can’t take photos from anywhere. These are the rules of Zen.
Okay, let’s see what has changed. And it seems like nothing has changed, only a modified bumper, and something behind, catches the eye, but more on that later. At first glance, everything looks identical, maybe I’m blind and not attentive, and I don’t notice something. If so, kick me in the comments! Let’s see what’s behind, and there seems to be something there …
And there really is something here. The first thing that catches the eye are the rear lights. Now they are black, and in the white version it looks spectacular, I wonder how it will be on a black car. And it seems like the bumper has changed a little, I don’t see anything else. Okay, maybe the interior is prettier? Let’s take a look.
No, well, this is completely … Only the "tablet" has changed, seriously? I do not believe! But apparently, this is exactly the case. Everything else looks similar. Again, maybe I’m blind or tired (I’m writing the article almost at night), if I missed something – kick me in the comments! Okay, what are the conclusions. Our appearance has not changed, well, almost. Got new bumpers and optics. We have a new "tablet" and that’s all … Has anything changed? And it really has changed. The interior of the car has changed.
The car received a modified 2.8-liter turbodiesel with an improved cooling system, a balance shaft was also rolled up there, injection pressure was increased and the control program was changed. These changes made it possible to increase the output of the engine to 200 horses and 500 Nm. The machine, by the way, remained the same.
As for prices, they haven’t changed much, except that the standard version has fallen a little, but the most important thing is the price of the diesel version. If earlier it was significantly cheaper than similar gasoline, now the opposite is true. On average, diesel versions have risen in price plus or minus by 100,000 conventional units. Prices start at 2,656,000 for the "classic" package with a 2.7-liter engine. The maximum configuration "Black Onyx (7 seats)" costs 4,767,000 conventional units for the version with a petrol 4-liter 249-horsepower engine and 4,787,000 for the version with a turbodiesel.
These are the changes received by the new restyling. Do you think it makes sense to buy a new restyling? Write your opinion about the change in the comments, and also kick me if I forgot or didn’t see something. See you soon!
