Prices start at $68,490 for the LandCruiser Prado Altitude V6 petrol model and $69,490 for the diesel. This puts it between the Prado GXL diesel at $61,990 and the Prado VX diesel at $78,490.

The LandCruiser Prado Altitude is available with the same 202kW/381Nm 4.0-litre quad cam V6 petrol and 127kW/410Nm 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engines currently available in the Prado.

The extra coin sees the seven-seat Prado Altitude gain satellite navigation, tilt-and-slide moonroof, leather-accented seat trim, privacy glass and a seven-inch touch-screen display.

The touch-screen up front can also operate the rear-seat entertainment system that comes with the package and includes a nine-inch monitor mounted from the ceiling, a DVD player, 5.1-channel surround sound and three wireless headphones.

The sound system in the Prado Altitude has also been upgraded from the six-speaker unit in the Prado GXL to a 14-speaker six-disc in-dash CD/DVD changer with remote control.

A back-guide monitor provides guidance for the reverse camera, and front parking sensors have been added to give assistance at the other end.

The special edition Prado Altitude will be produced until the end of April.
