  • What you buy if you had $45k?

    Hi all,

    looking to purchase a prado. Several options in play...

    Looks like i can get:

    2015-2016 GX with about 70-100K km
    2013-2014 GXL with 60-100K km
    2011 VX with 120k+ km

    and the list goes on. My thoughts are that a MY14 GXL with under 80k might balance options best.

    ideally have a little spare for some mods but happy to wait also.

    also hesitant to buy prado with build up already but considering it - thoughts?

    thanks
    Mick

    GXL vs GX would depend on whether you need the 7 seats to come standard?

    I just had the same debate and picked up a 2014 GXL, kids jumped in the 3rd row seats straight away and we don't care about the fancy trimming in the VX

        Id vote for a face lifted 2014 with lower kms the better (obviously condition dependant!)

          Where can you find a 2018 for that price?

            Not sure what the discounted price for a 5 seat GX auto for these days but you should easily get one for under $60k.
            I payed $51000 in June 2015 for mine.

            As someone else has suggested, if you don't need 7 seats, then a GX 2014 and newer are a good option.

            New 2015 150s GX 5 seater with floor mats, towbar and a big wish list
            Previously a 2004 120s 1KZ GX silver manual with stuff
            before that a 1996 RV6 90S with lots of gear

                Update. Picked up a 2015 (updated model) white gxl for $47.5k. ARB winch bar, safari snorkel, redarc dual battery system(and connector in boot for fridge) new AT tyres, GME radio and only 42K km.

                looked like it was set up for someones tourer and then traded after. Pretty happy.
