TOYOTA PRADO 150 SERIES - GVM UPGRADE 3500KG - LOVELLS SECOND STAGE OF MANUFACTURE (SSM)

PRADO 150 SERIES GVM & GCM UPGRADE OVERVIEW

Note that The GCM (Gross Combined Mass) doesn’t form part of a Lovells GVM Upgrade or noted in Lovells DIT Approval for Second Stage of Manufacture. As mentioned above it is basically governed by the new GVM of the vehicle and the maximum braked towing capacity.

The Original Equipment maximum braked towing capacity for example on the Toyota Prado 150 series is 2500kg. This doesn’t increase nor decrease when our GVM Upgrade is fitted, it remains at 2500kg. Unlike LS11 10% GVM upgrades where the braked towing capacity will decrease - but that is a completely different ball game marketed at vehicles prior to 2005 build dates & vehicles that do not have Second Stage of Manufacturer testing approvals, read more about LS11 vs. SSM here.

Expect approx. 30mm-50mm lift over OE, dependant on weight and location of accessories fitted. Save $550 - $660 if GVM upgrade is done prior to first inital registration point under the second stage manufacturer (SSM) scheme.

IS IT TRUE? CAN THE BRAKED TOWING CAPACITY BE UPGRADED ON A 150 SERIES?

Yes the 150 series Prado 11/2009-10/2017 towing capacity can be increased and has full SSM approval. So not only can the GVM be increased on the Toyota Landcruiser 150 series, but the Braked Towing Capacity can be increased from 2500kg to 3100kg.
