Default 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado EDIT : Now launched

@Mods : I tried searching the term 2010 Prado but could not find a thread. Hence started the new thread. Please do the needful if a thread already exists.

Source : 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado aka Lexus GX brochure leaks - Worldcarfans

Teh biggest and most welcome change is the updated powerplant. I think that this updated powerplant recently was made available in US in FJ Cruiser also.
Article :
Several images of Toyota's redesigned 2010 Land Cruiser Prado (Lexus GX) have surfaced on the web.

The updated sport-ute boasts modernized styling with an aggressive front bumper, sweptback headlights, and integrated LED turn signals on the mirrors. Overall, the new SUV is still instantly recognizable as a Prado thanks to its familiar greenhouse and side opening rear tailgate.

Inside, the 2010 Prado features a luxurious interior with a symmetrical dash design. While the upright center stack may offend some of us, it seems to offer a no-nonsense layout which should make common control tasks a breeze. As one would expect, the Prado boasts a multifunction steering wheel, heated seats, available keyless entry, and plenty of wood trim.

Power is expected to come from a 4.6-liter V8 engine that produces 310 hp and 327 lb-ft of torque, but nothing is official as of yet.

Look for the redesigned Prado to be officially unveiled in the coming months.

Default Toyota launches the all new Land Cruiser

Toyota has launched the all new Land Cruiser with revised 171bhp 3.0-litre D-4D engine, matched to a five-speed automatic transmission.

Absolutely love the steering column and instrument cluster. Well Done Toyota!

Hope I had the money to own one, but then again I have learnt to live and like the imperfections in my white beast.

Oh my God. The new Prado looks amazingly ugly! The previous gen looked much better.

It now looks like the Mahindra Xylo!!
