The Japanese publication says that the new Toyota Land Cruiser Prado will go on sale in Japan in July 2017. The previous facelift brought several changes to the styling and equipment of the SUV, but it’s unknown what all is set to update with the second one. According to the report, Toyota will enhance the safety of the Land Cruiser Prado with the second facelift, besides renewing the exterior yet again with some tweaks.

The 2017 Toyota Land Cruiser will feature Toyota Safety Sense P as standard. The advanced safety package for mid-size vehicles consists of Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection function (PCS w/PD) for vehicle and pedestrian detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist function (LDA w/SA), Automatic High Beams (AHB) and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). Models getting this package get an in-vehicle camera and front-grille-mounted, millimeter-wave radar for enhanced safety and more functionality.
