Dear Pak Wheelers,
I am planing to buy a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, model from 1995 to 2000.
As i been seeing there are different type of Engines like 1kz, d4d and may be some i don't know, i wanted to know which is the best fuel efficient engine on these models.
I wanted to buy the one with good fuel consumption.
Also if possible please share your mileage.
I am not much expert on English writing so if you found any mistake, please ignore it.
As i think you understand my request.
from 95 to 2000 prado uses 3.0, 1kz turbo intercooler version. after 2000 prado comes 1kd-ftv. The 1KD engine produces 17% more power (172 hp) with 11% less fuel consumption than its predecessor, the 1KZ engine. I m talking about the diesel engines only. there are gasoline versions too..
Petrol variant with 2.7L engine (3RZ-FE 2694CC) is also good in term of fuel economy. It gives 9 km/l on long and 6~7 in city drive. 1KZ (2982 CC diesel) is also good and powerful, gives almost same fuel economy as of 3RZ but dont go for 1KD-FTV (2982 CC) D4D coz its maintenance is very expensive due to low quality of diesel in pakistan.
Its all just talk here... 90% Prados are 1kz and thats what you will get. 2.7, 3.4 ones are very rare so due to this seller will demand more money which is a deal breaker. I have never seen a 1kd 90series prado so I guess it doesn't exist lol
