    Default Need Advice about 1kz 1992 Toyota prado.

    I need Comfortable SUV for NA areas in summer and to take me to hunting spots in winters.
    I dont need to use it for extreme huntings tours as have Suzuki and CJ 7.
    If I buy 1996 Prado it is around 2 Million and 1992 5 door is around 1.2 Million.
    Therefore 1996 model is too expensive to invest money for only above 2 purposes.
    Jeep owners of 1992 Prado model or experts off roaders brothers can advice me
    1. Off road capabilties of 1992 model in 1kz?
    2. Fuel consumption?
    3. Comfort?
    4. I believe keeping cars in perfect condition. Is it possiable that If I hunt around and even pay some extra I can find 1992 model in perfect mint condition or its just waste of time. As so far all I have seen in Lahore are pice of junks.

    All inputs by fellow members will be highly appricated.
    Thanks.

    The 1992 Prado came with 2LTE engine. 1KZTE started from 1993 Prado's.

    1. It works well as a offroader thanks to the healthy low end torque.
    2. 1KZTE are fuel thirsty engines so expect no more than 5.5 to 6 KM/ltr maximum.
    3. The comfort level is fine, You also have have hard/soft suspension mode switch.
    4. Depends upon your luck. Search for 1993 above

    I own Prado 3 door, M/T, 1kZTE 1994 reg 2000.
    It is excellent but gives 6-7 km/litre in city, is comfortable & very smooth, strong pick & run. All controls in hand ie., 4X4 selection,hard soft suspension switch.
    So u see infact it is fuel thirsty but if economy is concerned then u know----------

    offroad performance is pretty good..
    never checked fuel consumption..
    comfort for a 70 series is great
    5 door are more common.. 3 door are a rare treat.

    Trust me.. it will bring a smile on your face EVERYTIME!
    Good luck in finding a good piece.. especially unaltered and original.
