The 3-door version of the Prado came with two rows of seats accommodating five people, whereas the 5-door version could accommodate eight people in three rows of seats. The engine was initially a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder SOHC turbo diesel unit producing 97 PS (2L-TE), which was replaced with a newly developed 3-liter 130 PS 4-cylinder turbo diesel unit in May 1993. The transmission was either a 5-speed manual or an electronically controlled 4-speed automatic, and the drivetrain configuration was part-time 4-wheel-drive with a 2-speed transfer.
