This generation was available in some markets since October 2009. There are two base versions: a five-door variant and a three-door variant. The five door variant in the general market is offered in TXL & VXL grades – which are much more option packed. This generation of Prado features advanced 4WD capabilities and an array of electronic gadgets.
This generation of the Prado is offered in the US badged as the 2010 model year Lexus GX 460 with luxury trim.
For dual tank configuration vehicles, the fuel tank capacity was reduced from 179 L to 150 L compared to the J120. The removable third row three-seaters of the J120 were replaced by fold-into-floor seats which seat only two people – which is also responsible for a loss of cargo capacity and usable height in the cargo compartment. On the higher end VX and Kakadu models, there are six camera positions enabling viewing to the front and down, to the side both front and rear, and to the rear. The engine remained the same, although the gear change points were altered for maximum fuel economy rather than maximum performance, even in Sports mode.

This model is available with a rear mounted spare tire or under-floor mounted spare wheel, depending on the market. For example, UK market vehicles have the spare wheel mounted under-floor, while in Australia or Argentina the spare wheel is mounted on the rear door. Having the spare wheel mounted on the rear door allows the addition of an auxiliary fuel tank, which is desirable in countries like Australia or Argentina where long distance journeys are common.

In Europe it is sold as simply the Toyota Land Cruiser LC3, LC4 or LC5 (depending on the generation) or with the number series designation (LC 70, LC 90 and LC 120). In North America it is not part of the Land Cruiser range, as the Toyota 4Runner replaces the Land Cruiser Prado's affordable trim levels, while the expensive trim levels are instead sold as the Lexus GX 470, with nearly identical body panels and a V8 engine.
