Toyota has revealed the new special edition model of the Land Cruiser Prado SUV. The new model commemorates the 70 strong years of the Land Cruiser SUV.
The current generation of the Land Cruiser is reaching the end of its life cycle and will soon be replaced by the new generation model. As the company prepares to introduce the generation change, the special anniversary edition of the last batch of the outgoing Land Cruiser Prado will also help Toyota to clear off the remaining units of the existing model.

The new limited-edition SUV has been christened the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 70th Anniversary Edition and comes kitted with a range of comfort and luxury-oriented features found on the L Package variant accompanied by some cosmetic upgrades to distinguish it from the regular model.
In terms of exterior updates, the Prado 70th Anniversary Edition brings forward black inserts in the grille, mirror caps, headlight trim, fog light surrounds, roof rails, and rear hatch trim. Moreover, it rides on black-dipped 12-spoke 18-inch wheels that lend it a menacing appeal.
Inside, there are rather subtle tweaks in the form of Saddle Tongue light brown leather upholstery over the seats, knee pads, centre console, and door panels. In addition, it also gets a 70th Anniversary badge as well as floor mats with the special edition's logo.
The car has been offered in a range of colour options including Avante-Garde Bronze, Red Mica, Attitude Black Mica, and White Pearl Crystal. Customers are also free to choose from five or seven-seat configurations of the SUV.
