First released in 1968, and one year later throughout Europe, the legendary Toyota Hilux has been a dominant presence in the global pickup market for nearly 50 years.
To date, the world’s favourite pickup has recorded cumulative global sales of over 18 million units. In Europe, some 34,000 Hilux vehicles were sold in 2015, representing a 23.1 percent share of the segment and making the Hilux one of the best-selling pickups in Europe.
Renowned for its Quality, Durability and Reliability (QDR), the unstoppable Hilux continues to amaze as it conquers the North Pole, Icelandic volcanos and the Antarctic continent, and also achieves podium finishes in the Dakar Rally Raid.
Available in Single Cab, four-seat Extra Cab and five-seat Double Cab bodystyles, the new eighth-generation Hilux builds on this legendary reputation and invincible QDR, redefining toughness for business users with a new and stronger ladder chassis, a reinforced deck structure, enhanced 4×4 capabilities, and an improved towing capacity.
At the same time, the new Hilux responds to a growth in pickup leisure usage in recent years with a fresher contemporary design, greater comfort, advanced equipment and improved safety, making it more stylish and stress-free to drive than ever.
Fulfilling user requirements for both a durable business workhorse and a stylish, comfortable leisure 4×4, the Hilux has been redesigned to offer all its customers significant improvements in six key areas:
Workhorse toughness and rugged durability combined with newfound levels of refinement and the styling even business users can be proud of.
A more spacious and comfortable interior combining SUV practicality and functionality with passenger car-like levels of noise, vibration, harshness (NVH) within the cabin.
A high-strength, impact-absorbing body structure, Toyota Safety Sense featuring PCS with Pedestrian Detection function, LDA and RSA, and comprehensive brake control systems including ABS, EBD, VSC and Trailer Sway Control (TSC).
A tougher ladder chassis, a reinforced deck structure and Active Traction Control (A-TRC), Downhill Assist Control (DAC) and Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) systems raise 4×4 capabilities to match Land Cruiser levels.
COMMERCIAL VEHICLE CAPABILITIES
A larger, stronger and more practical cargo deck and an improved towing capacity of up to 3.5 tonnes.
