Somewhere around Australia, an unsuspecting customer has taken delivery of the 200,000th Landcruiser Prado sold by Toyota since it launched in 1996!
According to the Executive Director of Sales and Marketing, Matthew Callachor, “this sales milestone signifies the loyal following of the Prado since it arrived in 1996”. Not only does it show case the loyalty of customers who love the Prado, but also the long-standing loyalty behind the Toyota brand as a whole. In Australia it was the top selling SUV in 2012 with a record 17,045 deliveries.
In the past year, Motorama Toyota has sold 273 Prado's, contributing to the overall success for Toyota as a market leader. Along with the Prado, other Toyota SUV models which have also seen successful and healthy gains include the FJ Cruiser, RAV4, Kluger and Landcruiser. With 14 variants launched since 1996, the Prado range currently starts with a GX grade five-door family wagonwhich offers five to seven comfortable seats and is powered by a 3.0L engine.
Higher specified versions of the vehicle are also available in the GXL, premium VX and top of the range Kakadu which all sport seven seats and are available in the choice of turbo-diesel or a 4.0L petrol engine.
Like all of Toyota’s new vehicles, the Prado is covered by Toyota Service Advantage capped-price servicing which offers a capped price for each major service necessary for the car. Motorama Toyota currently offers this Capped Price Servicing for all of their vehicles and are also proud to stock the popular Prado range!
