    ^ yes these prados come in both 3l which is 2800cc , and 1kz which i believe so is 3000cc turbo , 3l is a workhorse engine , it does not have much acceleration but maintenace and fuel consumption is less than 1kz , as 1kz is a speedy engine which gives a lot of torque to you for acceleration , and you get fun driving the beast , but its fuel thirsty and parts are more expensive ,

    The 3L version of Prado is a basic version. Where as the 1KZ versions are mostly filly equipped version.

    Avoid L series engines as they are very underpowered, noisy, and prone to head crack issues. Yes from 2L to 5L all of them face the head crack issue.

    The only disadvantage of 1KZ is that it's fuel thirsty. Try finding a 1KZ intercooled version.
