The new 2025 Toyota LandCruiser Prado (250 Series) will be up to $12,500 more expensive than the car it replaces when it goes on sale later in 2024.

    Toyota Australia today confirmed local pricing for the 250 Series Prado will start from $72,500 before on-road costs in base GX guise – a $9670 increase compared to the outgoing 150 Series.

    This is the smallest price rise across the board. The Prado GXL is now priced from $79,990 before on-roads (+$10,460), the Prado VX starts from $87,400 before on-roads (+$10,552), and the flagship Kakadu begins at $99,990 before on-roads (+$12,522).

    The range has also expanded with the return of the Prado Altitude, slotting between the VX and Kakadu with a $92,700 before on-roads price tag.

    All Toyota LandCruiser Prado variants are powered by the same 2.8-litre, four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine as before, retaining its 150kW and 500Nm outputs but gaining 48-volt mild-hybrid assistance.

    The Prado’s turbo-diesel engine is mated to a new eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission (up two ratios from the outgoing model), which incorporates low-range gearing and sends power to all four corners through a full-time all-wheel drive system.

    Order books for the new LandCruiser Prado are yet to open.

    Prices exclude on-road costs.


    On paper, the engine in the new Prado looks very similar to the outgoing model.

    There are two important additions, however, first of which is a 48V mild-hybrid system. It doesn’t boost power, but it does remove strain from ancillary functions by adding a motor generator, 48V battery, and DC/DC converter.
