Awaken your unbreakable with more power and a fresh new look HiLux.
June 9, 2020
A bolder, tougher-looking HiLux range is on its way, with an expanded line-up and significant improvements to performance, fuel economy, ride comfort, towing and equipment levels.
The updated HiLux, arriving in our dealership late August, offers a beefier output from the 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine due to multiple new components and enhanced cooling. Maximum power has been increased to 150kW (+15.3 per cent) while peak torque on automatic models has been ramped up to 500Nm (+11.1 per cent).
Fuel consumption has also been improved by up to 11.1 per cent while tuned accelerator response delivers greater driver control.
The upgraded HiLux range keeps the 2.4-litre turbo-diesel and 2.7-litre four-cylinder petrol engine along with three transmissions, 4×2 and 4×4 drive, three body styles (single, extra and double cabs), two configurations (pick-up or cab-chassis) and five equipment levels (in ascending order: Workmate, SR, SR5, Rogue and Rugged X).
Suspension upgrades include revised shock-absorber tuning, new bushings and improved leaf-spring design, giving drivers a more comfortable ride, particularly over rough roads and with low loads while maintaining HiLux’s legendary off-road capabilities.
The 4×4 models with downhill-assist control, have an additional traction control feature when using 2WD mode reroutes torque to assist grip in muddy or grassy conditions on worksites.
Towing capacity for automatic 4×4 HiLux variants – including new double-cab-chassis Workmate and SR5 derivatives – has been upgraded to a maximum of 3500kg to match manual versions. On 4×2 variants, all diesel automatics are now rated at 2800kg, an increase of up to 300kg.
The revised exterior styling delivers a tough, robust on-road presence for HiLux that is more in keeping with the global Toyota ute/truck family. Inside, all models have been upgraded to an 8-inch display screen with enhanced voice recognition and the latest smartphone integration functions, including the adoption of Apple CarPlay®1 and Android Auto™2. SR and higher grades are also equipped with satellite navigation and digital (DAB) radio.
