  • 2018 Prado Altitude

    In the process of updating my 2013 Altitude, and just wondering whether anyone had heard any whispers of if there will be a 2018 version? Personally Iím not super keen on the smaller tank of the 2017 version if they do release one. Have got quotes for GXL with leather and tow etc which is comparable with other threads. But wondering if there will be an altitude before i go ahead with the GXL.

    Altitude is normally released just before an update model, so I canít see there been one this year.

      Keep your 2013 model as it was the last one with both tanks fitted. They also dont have as much fruit fitted to them as the 2012-2013 models did. I love my 2012 Altitude.

        There is option coming in August where you can opt for wheel beneath and the smaller capacity tank. Toyota adopted apple carplay...wondering whether we will see an upgrade to the audio system

              its Fact.
              Have been told there is a tech change for Prado's made after June 18. The change I know about is the inclusion of factory manual DPF switch. I know its fact because Im waiting on my Prado and won't get it until August because of the change. I hear it could also include other tech changes, fingers crossed its Apple CarPlay

                  Hi DGWally, you seem to be getting more info than I can get from my dealer. I entered the system for a VX about 24 April so may be in similar situation to you. Now I am hoping for post 18 june build but this is impacting our annual northern migration plans. Starting to get pretty cool down here.
                  Cheers

                      I am getting similar story to you even though ordered earlier. June production and July/August delivery maybe. But no confirmation or firm(ish) details, they are blaming it on a technical upgrade. Maybe I will get the upgrade maybe not...

                        I believe if its June production... its with the Tech changes... the bug question is... what are the changes.. I know about the manual DPF, but that cant be the only change Can it ?
