  • Looking to buy new 2018/2019 Toyota Prado VX

    Looking to buy a new 2018 or 2019 Prado VX. Trying to work out what is a good price i haven't had much joy with the dealers so far.

    Wondering what sort of deals others have been getting from dealers

    Thanks in advance for you help !

    Hi, Any particular reason you after VX ? as far as i know most of the items on VX are GLX options now . What is the best offer you got so far for VX?
    I bought a kakakdu at 79k drive away from VIC last month .

      Was looking at the VX as i like the multi cameras, blind spot monitoring and the cross traffic warning which I have been told is not available as an upgrade

      Best i have so far is 2019 VX with towbar, paint, mats, tint & weathershields for 74k driveway.

        Hi,
        i picked up a VX in Brissy late December for $70K drive away. Scifleet had a deal going. The car was on the boat when we ordered it and we picked it up about 10 days later. That suggests, to me anyway, there is not a lot of stock sitting about. Missed out on the new warranty despite asking nicely. A decent tow bar will cost you about $650 and there are plenty of places selling, allegedly, genuine mats, wx shields etc. Tint for the front windows was $150. Most folk suggest paint protection is not really necessary - just wash frequently, keep the bird poo of it and give it a polish occasionally. We went from a very dark (metal storm) colour to crystal pearl. The temp difference in the car after itís been in the sun at work all day is incredible. My 2 cents worth anyway. Best of luck. Soz.

          According to https://pricemycar.com.au/toyota/lan...r/prado-vx-4x4

          Excellent Price
          Driveaway: $68,283
          Saving: $12,087 or 15.04%

          Sounds about right, non metallic

          EDIT: that's last 6 months so guess 2018

            Sci-Fleet were selling a couple of VX Prado's at $68,990 driveaway before Christmas however they were "old" stock without the DPF burn button.
            I paid just over $70,000 with towbar, full tint (privacy glass treated as well), mats and a full tank.
            Any deal under $70,000 will be a very good deal indeed

              Gday are you willing to say which dealership coz Iíd like a Kakadu but am considering the VX to save a few bucks, but for $79k drive away it could be worth it! By the way did you get the wheel on the back or the 2 part lift back opening option?

                  Wow, if I can get a brand new VX with a few extra bits for 70K drive away in Victoria I am going to stop looking at used ones. All the private sellers out there 69K excluding on roads. Somebody point me in the direction of a dealer that's prepared to play ball.

                      We decided on the 2018 VX, previous Prado was a 2015 Kakadu. This time round we just felt that the sweet spot was with the VX for around $10k less then another Kakadu. We absolutely loved the Kakadu and miss the KDSS the most (I felt like it was a better ride)
                      The latest VX now comes standard with rear diff locker, heated and cooling seats, Centre Ice Box, And the same safety features in the Kakadu. We couldnít see the point of spending the extra $10k
                      plus despite what other might say, you never really get the extra $$$ back from a Kakadu. 3 years and 80,000km later we could only get $55-$58k for it. (Almost $30k drop in 3 years) the GXL doesnít loose anywhere near as much and I am hoping the VX will hold up a little better. Hope that helps.

                            Seems ok, I feel ripped off after reading the thread..
                            I paid 72k for a 2019 VX with free bonnet protector....
                            At the time I thought it was a great deal...
                            The car is still on the boat, so excited to be part of the club.
