New Hilux engine to be used in Prado?

13 May 2015

Various reports in the Internet suggest that Toyota will be upgrading the Prado shortly.

It makes sense, since the all-new Hilux, with a new 2,8-litre turbocharged diesel, is around the corner.

The Prado has always been hampered by its low power output and a new diesel engine is just what it needs.

In the Hilux this 2,8-litre four-cylinder diesel produces 119kW and 400Nm of torque, which isn’t much of an improvement, but here’s to hoping that Toyota will increase those figures slightly for the Prado.
