Toyota Prado 2018 Powertrain
Toyota has eliminated the 4.0-liter V6 petrol previously available because only 1.2 percent of Prado buyers have chosen it. This means that the only choice of engine is the reduced 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel introduced in August with a new six-speed automatic transmission in August 2015. The emissions-consistent 1GD-FTV (Global Diesel) Euro 5 engine continues to deliver 130kW of power and 450Nm of torque (but only 420Nm with a manual gearbox), which is lower than the 143kW / 470Nm 3-cylinder diesel outputs , 2 liters in the Ford Everest.
