Toyota’s successful commercial vehicle offering the Hilux was first introduced about 40 years ago, and the latest truck that is on sale today was the 8th generation Hilux which was launched last year. The new Hilux has a tough new face which goes well with its tough and durable nature.
The latest Hilux also has been given lot of focus on the interior to provide a very comfortable and safe cabin for the driver. The added comfort and convenience is aimed at reducing driver fatigue and thereby improve productivity. Hence the interiors are SUV-like with sound ergonomics and a pleasing design to add. It is to be said that the interiors too feel well put together and seem like they can take abuse rather well.
Available in single and double cabins, the all-new Hilux comes in 2.0L with 137HP and a 2.7L 164HP petrol engines, or a 2.4L diesel engine, and in 4WD and 2WD choices for all the three powertrains. The 2.0L and 2.7L engine options come with a 6-speed automatic transmission, which Toyota claims improves efficiency by almost 15% when compared to the previous gen Hilux. The 2.4L diesel engine is available with a 6-speed manual transmission which generates 147HP and a really impressive 399NM of torque, which gives it really good drivability and also much better hauling ability. Based on a new toughened platform and being equipped with longer leaf springs, the Hilux offers a comfortable ride, even when hauling cargo. There is also an ECO mode button on the dash that lets the driver choose between ECO or Power modes to optimize efficiency.
The Hilux does not compromise on safety, and comes equipped with dual front airbags and a knee airbag for the driver too. It also has ABS with EBD and brake assist, which really helps in reducing stopping distances when the Hilux is loaded up with cargo, Hill assist control, ESP and even a trailer sway control.
Overall, the Hilux continues to build on its strengths of being a reliable and dependable work horse, while improving on space, comfort and toughness to cement its position in the pick-up truck segment.
