Land Cruiser Prado 90 series.

Amazing facts

With the second-generation model released in May 1996, the Land Cruiser Prado line steered toward a more passenger-oriented 4-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicle. Both the short-wheelbase 3-door model (5-seater) and the long-wheelbase 5-door model (8-seater) became larger than their predecessors, and were classified as "3 number" vehicles. The two models were distinguished by their front styling including the headlamp design: the short-bodied model had a sportier look, whereas the long-bodied model appeared more rugged.

The engine lineup consisted of a newly included 3.4-liter 185 PS V6 DOHC gasoline engine (5VZ-FE) and a 3-liter 4-cylinder SOHC turbo diesel unit (1KZ-TE) that had powered the previous model, although the latter increased its output to 140 PS with the addition of an intercooler. The drivetrain configuration was switched from part-time 4WD to full-time 4WD. The same suspension was used for both the Prado and the Hilux Surf, consisting of an independent double wishbone and coil spring system for the front and a 4-link coil spring system with a lateral rod for the rear. A 2.7-liter 150 PS 4-cylinder DOHC gasoline engine (3RZ-FE) was added to the lineup in April 1997, and the turbo diesel unit was replaced with a 3-liter common rail diesel unit (1KD-FTV) producing 170 PS in July 2000.
