Default New Prado

http://www.themotorreport.com.au/576...-vx-and-kakadu

Check out the new Prado, FM ive never seen anything more ugly than that. Prados used to be half decent looking but god forbid, what were they thinking . In fact Toyo should sack all their designers & start again.!

It is about time they updated the ugly dashboard, but that front end, not a fan yet.... And I know the engine is ok but they should've updated it at the same time....

HA! HA! HA! Dats phunny. Maybe some truth to it. Seems to be also inspired by JEEP looking at those vertical teeth. Never have liked those bulging plastic headlight lenses and they have reused them again.

I think so too. The 120 series is, IMO, a great looking vehicle, and the 4L V6 is awesome. Shame about the diesels....
