In Nigeria, you are most likely to see a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado in the convoy of a politician. In fact, there’s a fat chance that at most 70% of the Prados you find on Nigerian roads belong to politicians or someone indirectly involved in politics. Non-politicians also purchase and use the vehicle but not as much as politicians do. It’s been said that some governors use this model of Toyota as the official car they disburse during their tenure.

2023 Toyota Prado Interior
The interior of the 2023 Toyota Prado will have no significant changes but we anticipate slicker leather seats which give an executive feel. Also, there will be an upgrade in the dashboard to make it up to par with current trends.
In order to meet the technological needs of the present-day driver and passengers, Toyota has included a 14-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto, 3D Multi-Terrain Monitor + Panoramic View Monitor, electric parking brake, and Toyota Safety Sense (v2.0 or higher) could be available in the next-gen Land Cruiser Prado. In addition, the all-new Prado may offer more convenience with a wireless charger and USB-C port(s) for smartphones.
2023 Toyota Prado Trims
It is speculated that the 2023 Toyota Prado SUV will come in GR sport trims as well as hybrid trims.
The GR Sport trim may feature a modified, more rugged exterior. Expect exclusive wheels, unique radiator grille, bumpers, wheel arch moulding, rocker mouldings, black mirrors and handles, and GR Sport emblems. Inside, the GR Sport grade may feature a different colour scheme and unique decor elements, an infotainment system with a special start-up screen, and GR branding on various elements. Cosmetic changes aside, thicker tires and a special suspension system that unleash more off-road capability should be the highlights of the Land Cruiser Prado GR Sport.
