Engine Performance

Under the hood, the 2025 Land Cruiser Prado continues to use the 2.8-liter, four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, producing 150kW of power and 500Nm of torque. However, it now incorporates a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. This system doesn’t increase power but reduces strain on the engine’s ancillary functions by adding a motor generator, 48V battery, and DC/DC converter. The engine is paired with a new eight-speed automatic transmission, offering improved efficiency and performance. The Prado’s drivetrain features low-range gearing and a full-time all-wheel-drive system, ensuring excellent off-road capabilities.
