    Default Towing weight for Prado

    I would like to know what the recommended weight is that a Prado KZT 3l diesel engine can tow safely?

    Normall equal to the weight of the tow vehicle if the trailer has run in brakes.

    I do however know that the older Toyotas can tow appreciably less.
