5 speed manual
123,408 verified miles
2.4L 2L-TE (Turbo Diesel)
Third row seats
Here we have a very clean LJ78 series Toyota Land Cruiser Prado. Like the FJ40 series that came before it, the 70 features boxy, iconic styling and a durable low displacement diesel engine that can transport you wherever you want to go. Sporting the extremely reliable 4 cylinder 2.4l 2L-TE turbo diesel engine and with only 123,408 original miles this Prado is only getting warmed up. If you’re looking for a stylish 70 series Prado that has the ability to put up over half a million miles at a canter with regular maintenance and is cheap to run and maintain look no further. Considered one of the top overlanding vehicles in the world but also comfortable cruising at highway speeds. The Prado can just as easily hit the trails as it can be a reliable daily commuter.
The 5 speed manual transmission is the real gem and very hard to find in this particular model. The transmission shifts comfortably through all 5 gears and adds additional enjoyment to the ownership of such an iconic 4×4. The combination of Toyota, diesel and 4wd makes these LJ78s so popular worldwide. It can handle rugged terrain, has a track record of proven reliability and gets good fuel economy. Located on the dash is an electronic Hub-Lock switch which ensures maximum traction in less than ideal conditions. The selective 4WD system does have a low gear as well if required but it is awfully difficult to get these stuck in just about any terrain.
The two tone paint on the 70 series Prado’s is always one of the most eye catching features. This one has dark emerald green/silver metallic paint that is in well above average condition for it’s age. The factory nudge bar has also remained on this LJ78 with the factory fog lights rounding out the iconic body lines of this generation of Land Cruiser. This example even has the third row seating seating still in tact, something we rarely ever see anymore.
Reliable and durable SUVs like the Prado are tough to find here in the USA. The iconic styling and Toyota’s dependability make this a surefire JDM Classic.
