One glance tells you the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado is no wannabe SUV. It’s a serious off roader that’s tough enough to handle the harshest terrain. At the same time, the Prado offers high levels of quality, comfort and performance on the road.

These days, compact off-road vehicles are all the rage in Japan and worldwide. So used Prados are very much in tune with the times. Smaller than other Land Cruisers like the current Land Cruiser J200 Series, they offer big advantages when maneuvering through narrow city streets, slipping into parking spots, challenging winding trails or climbing slippery slopes where heavier vehicles bog down.

The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado supports serious off-road performance with a ladder frame design, front and rear beam axles and a four-wheel drive system with two-speed transfer case that transfers power to both axles and synchronizes front and rear rotational differences.

Solid front and rear beam axle suspensions deliver comfort, excellent handling and grip on and off the road. When you leave smooth roads behind for rougher terrain, or vice versa, you can change the damping of the shock absorbers with the press of a button. Whatever the road or wilderness throws your way, the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado handles it with assurance.

Toyota’s 4-cylinder 2.4-liter SOHC diesel engine (2L-TE I4-T) is turbocharged for power and fuel injected for high fuel efficiency and torque. Its precise electronic fuel injection system uses a pre-combustion chamber in the head for indirect injection that helps reduce diesel knock. The engine produces 97 hp (72 kW) at 3,800 rpm and 22.54 kg⋅m (221 N⋅m) of torque at 2,400 rpm, which is enough for a vehicle this size. A 4-speed automatic transmission supplies smooth changing of gears.

The interior is inviting with ample amenities for a touch of luxury, big comfortable seats and plenty of legroom. Controls are designed for easy use in challenging conditions and materials are durable, as you would expect from a capable 4WD vehicle.

The first-generation 1992 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado in this photo is a Japanese domestic semi-long version (Q-LJ78G) with SX grade trim. As you can see, it has 5 doors (3-door versions were also available in Japan) and a handsome maroon and silver finish. The well cared for brown and beige interior features power steering, power windows, powerful air conditioning and comfortable seats that easily accommodate eight adults.

There have been four generations of the Prado so far, known as the J70 (Land Cruiser LC70), J90 (Land Cruiser LC90), J120 (Land Cruiser LC120 ) and the current J150 (Land Cruiser LC150).

Japanese love their domestic off-road machines, and Japan Car Direct can find used examples in great condition at great prices from Japanese used car auctions and Japanese used car dealers for export to your country. If you’re in the market for a Toyota Land Cruiser, call Japan Car Direct.

  • 5 star review  I can't recommend JCD enough. Mathew was a fantastic person to work with. As a newbie to the Japanese auctions, I was quite naïve and had far too many questions. Mathew was kind, knowledgeable, and patient through the entire process. My Minicab arrived last week and I am quite pleased. I would not hesitate to work with Japan Car Direct again in the future. Thank you Mathew!! Jay A.

    5 star review  IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting for fairness at auto auctions here in the USA - we own a small dealership. Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit, but he worked through my caution and I’m now very happy to purchase through him. Call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

I dig into everything and am used to fighting not to get taken at local auctions (I own a dealership and believe strongly in integrity). Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust.

    5 star review  I always wanted a Land Cruiser ! Mathew helped me find 2 beautiful trucks from the Japanese auction. Had them delivered to Freeport, TX last week. He was amazing to work with. Fast response time on bids, super easy to work with, he has a lot of experience and answered all questions promptly. Will be working with JCD more in the future to purchase more vehicles !

    5 star review  Very pleased with my experience with JCD. Mat helped me with my purchase of a Honda Beat and its shipping to the port of Baltimore. Everything was seamless and I would (and already have) recommended this company to several friends.

    5 star review  I just wanna thank Matthew and the whole team at Japan Car Direct, they always went above and beyond in making sure their clients are always happy and informed about the vehicles they are purchasing.

    5 star review  Do yourself a favor, call Mathew at Japan Car Direct. Let him take the worry about doing business over seas off your plate. Not knowing anything about importing vehicles from Japan, I spent countless hours studying and trying to figure it all out. The headaches were too much! After Mathew walked me through the process it was a piece of cake. We've already bought a couple and are now buying more with complete confidence. Thanks guys, much much appreciated.

  • 5 star review  Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.

    5 star review  Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.

    5 star review  Yoshi and team were patient in helping me find the right car (green 2016 Prius 4WD) and get me through the process. Flawless service, prompt response to communications, on delivery the car was better than expected, very close to new looking. Their recommended partners for shipping and entry into NZ were on the ball too. Highly recommended! Pro tip: don't mess around; decide exactly what you want, then bid to win.
