In addition, the lower front pillar reinforcements also have a multi-layer construction and high-strength outer rocker panel reinforcements have been introduced. The 2010 Land Cruiser now offers Toyota's Safety Connect telematics system. Kinetic Driving Suspension System During serious off-road driving, the new Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System maximizes suspension travel in order to keep the tires on the ground. What we like about the 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 1. Cargo space is somewhat lessened by the third-row seats that flip up and stow along the cargo bay's sides, rather then folding flush into the floor. Toyota has made it easier for drivers to find their ideal position at the wheel, adding both reach and rake adjustment to the steering wheel.
When acceleration moves beyond this zone, the Eco light goes out and the display begins to flash. Toyota Land Cruiser Prado On May 1996, the second generation of Land Cruiser Prado was released for sale. Suspension As detailed in the on-road performance section, new Land Cruiser has a revised independent front suspension design and a four-link rear system with a lateral rod, giving strength, reliability and durability with the degree of long wheel stroke that is required for outstanding off-road performance. Its interior is roomy and comfortable, with adaptable seating that can be folded down for additional cargo space. This reduces the amount of body movement on severe terrain, helping prevent the vehicle from bottoming out and causing damage. Transmission types are available in 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic.
Therefore, with a diesel engine, drivers greatly save on fuel costs. The engine is highly durable and meets Euro 4 emissions standards. At least the speedometer is large and easy to read. This constant level of steering assistance helps the driver gain a better idea of how much grip the tyres have through the steering wheel. The approach angle, which determines the maximum gradient the vehicle can approach with the underside of the front bumper hitting the ground, is 32°. We believe we have succeeded in refining and improving both of these seemingly conflicting qualities.
One year Extended Warranty available. Braking and stability control systems New Toyota Land Cruiser's servo-assisted braking system uses new 388mm ventilated front discs with width increased to 32mm. The gear selected is shown on the central instrument display.

Areas out of sight of the driver, such as immediately in front of the bonnet and to within 50cm of the bumper can be seen using the system. Firstly, diesel fuel is significantly cheaper than petrol.
As a result, the fluid in the hydraulic lines remains still, holding the front and rear cylinder pistons in place, so the anti-roll bars suppress the suspension stroke and body roll is reduced. Driven by the timing gear, these rotate at twice the speed of the crankshaft and in opposite directions. At the front there is a new over-size bumper design with integral fog lamps, which emphasises Land Cruiser's powerful stance. It's a good thing, but is it that good? The roof header reinforcement has a closed top and bottom cross-section, giving added strength and floor cross-members are strategically placed to effectively distribute impact forces - measures which both further help to reduce the risk cabin deformation. Occupant protection is further enhanced by the foam padded door panels and door trims, reducing the risk of pelvic injuries in a side collision, and crushable door armrests. It works at speed less than 15mph, with no need for the driver to use the brake and accelerator pedals. The Land Cruiser is available in one trim level.
Using high tensile steel within the body saves weight as well as increasing bodyshell rigidity. As one would expect, the Prado boasts a multifunction steering wheel, heated seats, available keyless entry, and plenty of wood trim. Sound insulation materials are placed in the A, B, C and D-pillars and the door sill and head sections to minimise the transmission of noise through the bodyshell. The front wing mounting brackets have crush points for effective energy absorption, and the wings themselves incorporate energy-absorbing protectors, with a construction designed to slip down in a head impact, so reducing the reaction force sustained by the pedestrian. Details of their operation can be found in the Off-Road Performance section. Ignorance is your worst enemy when negotiating with a dealer.
This configuration ensures drivers keep a clear view of all the key controls and meters when driving over steeply banked terrain. The bonnet has a deep, energy-absorbing profile with longitudinal reinforcement ribs. The improved aerodynamics and a slick 5-speed auto transmission have resulted in an impressive 8. It's possible to get these separately or as part of the Upgrade Package, which bundles almost all of the Land Cruiser's optional equipment. Get back on the bitumen and the suspension feels more plush, there is more 'stuff' to enjoy, and the cabin is a little more roomy and significantly more practical.

Vehicle Details The 2010 Land Cruiser offers an expansive interior that can be configured to accommodate up to eight passengers, two people and a pile of gear or several combinations in between. The impact of the front overhang on the off-road driving approach angle has been minimised by sharply trimming the lower section. This is due to the extra torque at low range, ideal for off road driving and carrying load. Like every new model from Toyota there are hundreds of changes and updates in the suspension and engines and electronics and entertainment systems, and it's all important stuff. The side cameras let the driver view an image of the area around the left and right, front or rear tyres simultaneously, regardless of the vehicle's direction of travel.
The front camera uses a wide angle lens to give the widest possible forward view. With the slip ratio of each wheel controlled independently, maximum grip and traction are obtained, even when traversing large obstacles. The 2010 Toyota Prado falls in the J150 series that have been in production from 2009 to Present. The driver can then limit the gear range by selecting the upper limit to which the transmission will operate.
