New Hilux headed our way

 

Great news for Hilux fans (and that’s just about everyone in South Africa, it seems) is that an all-new Hilux has been unveiled by Toyota, and it is better looking, more powerful, more comfortable and comes with more equipment.

 

First off, the Hilux has been completely redesigned with a bold and powerful three-dimensional grille and front bumper treatment, which significantly increases the pick-up's road presence and strong stature. In short, it looks as tough, rugged and dependable as the Hilux has always proven to be.

Newly designed LED lights both front and rear make the Hilux look that much more modern, and new black 18-inch alloys complement the three new colours: Emotional Red II, Dark Blue and Oxide Bronze metallic.

The interior has taken yet another step closer to that of an SUV, with most of the attention being focussed around the new, 8-inch centre-console-mounted infotainment screen that adopts mechanical buttons and dials for enhanced operability under all driving conditions. It incorporates both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. An extensive equipment list includes smart entry and push-button start, satellite navigation, automatic air-conditioning, front and rear parking sensors, and a 9-speaker JBL Premium Sound System incorporating an 800W 8-channel amplifier and CLARi-Fi technology.

South Africans will be most excited about the new 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine, which now produces 150kW and 500Nm, up from the current 130kW/420Nm. Despite these performance upgrades, which are the result of new components and enhanced cooling, the fuel consumption drops by approximately 11%. Six-speed manual and automatic transmissions will be paired with this new, more powerful 2.8 engine.

Finally, the suspension and power-steering systems have been enhanced to deliver more comfort and improved drivability. The Hilux retains its on-frame architecture for longevity and work-horse capabilities.

The new-generation Toyota Hilux will definitely be coming to South Africa but launch dates as well as pricing and local specification will only be confirmed in months to come.
