Toyota debuted the Land Cruiser Matt Black Edition for Europe last month. The company now gives the JDM-spec Land Cruiser Prado, also known as the Package Matt Black Edition, the exact same treatment.
This comes after the 70th Anniversary Edition, which went on sale last year just in time for the unveiling of the new Land Cruiser.
The new Matte Black Edition adds some style to the SUV but doesn't improve performance. Toyota has added matte black trim elements all around the vehicle, including the headlamp garnish, fog light bezels, and the grille and grille insert. The SUV also gets 18-inch matte black six-spoke metal alloys.
With 265/60R18 tires mounted to 18-inch alloy wheels, the special edition SUV travels. The LED headlights offer an automatic leveling feature and electrically adjustable mirrors.
Black leather upholstery, oak dashboard elements, a 9-inch infotainment touchscreen with TV and navigation, and a six-speaker audio system are all found within. Both a five-seater and a seven-seater version of the SUV are offered. Adaptive cruise control is included in the Toyota Safety Sense package, although blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert are extras.
In Japan, consumers have a choice between diesel and petrol engines, in contrast to the EU-spec Land Cruiser 150 Series, which only comes with diesel. Thus, the 2.7-liter gasoline engine with 161 horsepower and 246 Nm of torque or the 2.8-liter turbodiesel with 201 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque are both options for the Matt Black Edition. In all situations, a six-speed automatic transmission distributes power to all four wheels.
For $32,662 to $38,739, Toyota is offering the Land Cruiser Prado Matte Black Edition.
