    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

    90 series with 1kd is a rare find if you want petrol then get a 5vz 3.4 v6 if diesel then 1kz is a good option because of the local diesel
