It’s the eight-generation Hilux

Believe it or not, Toyota has been making the Hilux since 1968. Since then there have been eight generations of the car including this one. Early models aren’t likely to look very familiar to British buyers, but the fourth generation was fairly popular in the UK during the 1980s.
