Why is Hilux such a popular vehicle in 180 countries? What attributes make it unique?
In the words of the Assistant Chief Engineer of the Toyota Hilux, Mr. Osamu Tomioka, “Until now, a vehicle’s value was determined by how ‘tough’ it was. However, in developing Hilux, we wanted to fundamentally rethink what ‘tough’ means. We heard from people that the vehicles are the foundation of their lives, an indispensable tool, space for the family, and so on. By getting to know the roads and the people, we learned that a different kind of “tough” was needed. Under rough road conditions, of course the vehicle should be tough. In addition to that, sometimes long hour drives with family also require tough which means keeping it comfortable and safe.” Further highlighting what sets the Hilux apart he said, “Seeing is believing brought us more meaning to toughness. High fuel efficiency for long fuel range, good riding comfort for long safe driving, noiseless cabin for communicating comfortably. To realize the development concept, we performed a lot of field tests on various roads, conditions, environments of all over the world. The all new Hilux is all about “Redefining Toughness”.”
The eighth generation 2016 Hilux is therefore not only a tough vehicle, but an advanced pick-up with stylish cues hitherto found only on SUVs. The front of the new Hilux gives a sense that the vehicle is wider than it is. This is achieved by the horizontal bars that make up the grille and sleek headlamps that wrap around the front of the fenders.The new Hilux sports a thick, chunky Front steel bumper sculpted like a SUV vehicle, Front Fog lamps, new design Alloy wheels and wheel caps, new design rear lamp with chrome garnish apart from new side stripes, which adorn the vehicle.
The vehicle’s interior continues the concept of “Tough and Emotional”, and reflects the same attention to detail as the exterior with SUV vehicle styling, accents and ornamentations. The key all new features that keep you comfortable are the Auto A/C, Steering wheel with audio switches and advanced controls, newly introduced Multi-Information Display (MID), 7″ Display Audio with DVD and many more.
Equal importance has been provided to the technical superiority and safety features of the new Hilux. The noteworthy features are 6-speed manual and automatic transmission options, newly developed 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine with 148 HP. The all new Hilux comes equipped with a number of active and passive safety features like ABS (Anti-lock Brake System), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist, SRS Airbags for the Driver and front Passenger and knee airbag for the driver.
