Toyota has lately revealed a “Utility” version of the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 2018 in the UK market. Despite being a little aesthetically pleasing, this distinctive LC Prado still has good off-road capability thanks to its 4x4 drivetrain, short overhangs and great ride height.
The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Utility 2018 gets a familiar style of standard models albeit being decorated with less pizzaz and chrome. It is available in both long wheelbase (5-door) and short wheelbase (3-door).
At the front fascia, the vehicle comes adorned with a matte-black grille and standard halogen headlamps, along with new 17’’ steel wheels.

The Japanese carmaker even equipped a flat non-slip floor tray to ensure that goods do not move during the transportation. Additionally, Toyota has added a rear bulkhead divider between the cargo and front seats to provide easier and safer entry to the cargo.
