The Meaning Of 'V' And '8' In Land Cruiser Prado V8 Vehicles

When buying a car, there are some things that you need to consider but can be deemed confusing. The V6 versus V8 engine is one of them, and knowing the differences and advantages can be helpful when you are trying to make a purchasing decision.  

Simply put, a V6 is a 6-cylinder engine. Whereas, a V8 means an 8-cylinder engine. But, you may wonder what the ‘V’ means in V6 and V8. The ‘V’ represents the way cylinders are arranged in your engine. V-type engines have cylinders placed in a V-like shape, or to put it the other way, in two equal rows. This design is commonly used since it requires less space and can fit in most cars. 

V8 engine? While both are common terms seen when shopping for vehicles, some people aren't aware of which is better for them. To put it simply, a V6 engine has six cylinders for fuel intake, whereas a V8 engine has eight.

After comparing these two legends side-by-side, the clear winner of this matchup is the dynamic Land Rover . The Toyota Land Cruiser simply cannot match the outstanding value, performance, versatility, and premium standard features found on the Prado.

If you want sheer power and reliability, then the Land Cruiser with its V8 engine option is the one for you. If you love tech then Prado is your best bet. Which one of these two cars do you prefer?
