The Toyota Hilux is one of the most dependable pick-up trucks on sale globally and holds a strong name for reliability. The model is underpinned by the tough IMV ladder-on-frame chassis that also underpins the Fortuner and Innova Crysta. Power comes from the familiar 2.8-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine tuned for 201 bhp and 420 Nm of peak torque on the 6-speed manual, which ups to 500 Nm on the 6-speed automatic version. The Hilux gets 4×4 as standard, along with a low-range gearbox, front and rear electronic differential locks, an approach angle of 29 degrees and a departure angle of 26 degrees, and a water wading depth of 700 mm.
On the feature front, the Toyota Hilux gets LED headlamps with DRLs, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstered seats, rear parking sensors, tyre angle monitor, traction control, seven airbags. Toyota offers a 3-year/100,000 km warranty on the Hilux as standard.
The Hilux directly competes with the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross in the segment. We recently drove the Toyota Hilux in India and will be dropping a complete review soon. Do watch out.
