2021 Toyota Hilux gets updated styling and new 2.8-litre engine

Published 04 June 2020

The Toyota Hilux is getting a comprehensive update for 2021, with new styling, tech and a turbocharged 2.8-litre diesel engine. 

Toyota hasn't released any pricing for the revised 2021 Hilux pick-up, but it's expected to start in the region of £20,000 (excluding VAT) when it goes on sale in November. 

The new 204PS 2.8-litre engine will be offered alongside the existing 150PS 2.4-litre turbodiesel, but the former will produce 100Nm more torque (500Nm in total) which should make it better suited for off-road driving and towing due to its improved low-gear acceleration. 

The front and rear shock absorbers have also been redesigned, with new leaf springs and bushing. Toyota says the updates will improve ride comfort and reduce harshness when driving over rough or broken roads.

Off-road performance has also been enhanced with the lowering of engine speed at idle from 850 to 680rpm, while the vehicle stability control system has been updated and a new tyre angle monitor has been adopted.

As before, the Hilux’s one-tonne payload and 3.5-tonne towing capacity are delivered across all three body types: Single Cab, Extra Cab and Double Cab. However, when fitted with the new 2.8-litre engine, the Hilux will be capable of covering 0-62mph in 10 seconds - a figure that's up to 3.2 seconds lower than the 2.4 diesel.

Inside, the Hilux gets a new-design instrument combimeter and an eight-inch multimedia screen mounted on the centre console. Toyota says the multimedia system has faster software and screen responses, and enables smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

Other features include keyless entry, push-button start, touchscreen navigation, automatic air conditioning, parking sensors and a nine-speaker JBL premium sound system.
