These Japanese Toyota retromods prove everything new is old again

You may be familiar with the concept of a restomod, taking an old car and bringing it up to date with later-model tech and engineering, but have you considered retromodding instead? The idea isn’t entirely new, of course. Japan is home to Subaru Sambars with Kombi-style faces, Nissan Cubes with Chevy C10 identity issues, and Suzuki Everys that think they’re American school busses, not to mention the many ways to restyle a Jimny.

Class action against Toyota over DPF issues being considered

Toyota Australia is facing a class action lawsuit over issues with the Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) in 2015-18 HiLux, Prado and Fortuner vehicles powered by the 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine. According to the legal firm considering the claim, its clients have experienced "increased fuel consumption and a loss of power of the vehicle" because "hard deposits accumulating on the DPF oxidisation catalyst" stop it reaching the necessary temperature.

Toyota Prado VX, GXL, Kakadu gain new, no-cost tailgate option

Toyota is about to announce the addition of a split tailgate with top-hinged glass as a no-cost option for the updated Landcruiser Prado, CarAdvice can exclusively reveal. Unlike previous Prado generations where the flat, split tailgate has been limited to top-spec Altitude models, the model-year update will make it available on the GXL, VX and Kakadu. The spare wheel is relocated under the car, the secondary fuel tank removed and a top-hinged rear window added.

2018 Toyota Prado facelift leaked - UPDATE

UPDATE, June 24: A series of clear new images have made their way online, again courtesy of Instagram user hamad1two3. We have added those images to throughout the body of this article, and you can find more in the gallery here. As before, it remains to be seen if these images are authentic, although the level of detail and the number of angles suggests they are genuine Toyota brochure or promotional images. Our thanks to readers Regreh, Leyton, and Simon!
