According to the latest data, the debut of the new Toyota Prado has been decided to postpone for another year — until 2023 — because of the upcoming global renewal of the company’s lineup.

Toyota is preparing to release new versions of the Crown, Noah/Voxy/Esquire and Alphard/Vellfire, which will take a large amount of work resources, and the second reason is the growing demand for the Toyota Prado current generation.
