Toyota Hilux (2015–)

Model History

April 2016

Toyota Hilux prices announced

All versions of Hilux feature all-wheel drive models and six-speed manual transmission. Invincible and Invincible X models offer the option of a six-speed automatic gearbox. Both transmissions have been extensively revised to improve durability and low-speed driving performance, with quieter, smoother gear changes.

Only the 2.4-litre D-4D Global Diesel (GD) engine for the UK, but gives both much improved torque delivery at low and medium engine speeds and class-leading fuel economy. The 2,393cc, 16-valve, DOHC four-cylinder engine generates 150PS at 3,400rpm, and maximum torque of 400Nm between 1,600 and 2,000rpm. Its strong, responsive and efficient performance is supported by a variable nozzle turbocharger with intercooler. The new 2.4 GD is set to achieve a combined cycle consumption from 39.8mpg. Carbon dioxide emissions are from 187 g/km (figures provisional prior to homologation).

Hilux has a new ladder-frame chassis that gives the vehicle a 20 per cent increase in torsional rigidity compared to the current model. It is designed to deliver improved handling, ride comfort, noise and vibration performance and collision safety with outstanding durability in even the most extreme driving environments.

The robust leaf spring and twin shock absorber rear suspension system has been extensively revised to provide off-road articulation capabilities and SUV-like ride comfort and handling stability. Hilux is equipped with a switchable all-wheel drive system featuring a high and low-ratio transfer case, and both front and rear locking limited-slip differentials. The improved low and medium speed torque delivery of the new diesel engine and the increased strength of the new ladder-frame chassis together enable an increase in towing capacity to 3.5 tonnes

Inside, the Double Cab cabin has an all-black theme with contrasting chrome instrument panel trim and piano black inserts on the dashboard, door panels, steering wheel and gear shift lever and surround. The instrument binnacle has new features, including smart white dials and a centre TFT multi-information display with a dedicated Invincible X start-up animation that activates each time the ignition is switched on. And the key is model-specific, featuring a silhouette sketch of the new frontal design.

June 2020

2.8-litre engine added to Hilux range

Toyota renews its Hilux pick-up with a striking design, a powerful 2.8-litre powertrain, improvements in on and off-road driving performance and equipment upgrades.

At the top of the range, the new Invincible X model gains bespoke styling features and premium equipment features, but sacrifices none of the strengths that have made Hilux a global success.

Where practicality is concerned, 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.

Hilux’s frontal design has a completely new look, with a more powerful, three-dimensional treatment of the grille and bumper, increasing the vehicle’s road presence and reinforcing its robust, go-anywhere credentials.

According to model grade, new front and rear LED light clusters are available, plus 18-inch alloy wheels with a contrast machined/black finish. There is also a striking new colour option – Titan Bronze metallic.

The upgraded cabin features a new-design instrument combimeter and an eight-inch multimedia screen mounted on the centre console. This uses buttons and dial controls for easier use in all driving conditions. The multimedia system has faster software and screen response, and enables easy smartphone integration using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

Features include smart entry and push-button start, satellite navigation, automatic air conditioning, front and rear parking sensors and a nine-speaker JBL premium sound system with an 800W eight-channel amplifier and CLARI-Fi technology for improving the reproduction quality of digital music files.

Customers can choose from a wide range of accessories to personalise their Hilux and equip it to suit their specific work or leisure requirements. Items include a range of hard tops and roll covers, a locking tailgate and a 12V power supply mounted on the deck.

Hilux’s powertrain range has been bolstered by the addition of a more powerful, 201bhp* 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine, a unit that ensures the pick-up stays on the performance pace in its segment.

The new engine generates 500Nm* of torque and can accelerate Hilux from nought to 62mph in 10 seconds* – up to 3.2 seconds faster than the current 2.4-litre unit. Combined cycle fuel consumption is 36.3mpg* and CO 2 emissions are 204g/km*.

Comfort and driveability have been enhanced through improvements to the suspension and power steering. The front and rear shock absorbers have been retuned, there is an improved leaf spring design and new bushing is used. These contribute to a smoother ride with less shock when driving over joints and holes in the road surface.

Off-road performance has been enhanced with the lowering of engine speed at idle from 850 to 680rpm; and accelerator response tuned for greater driver control, The vehicle stability control has been updated and a new tyre angle monitor has been adopted.

* All figures provisional pending final homologation; fuel and emissions are NEDC correlated data; WLTP data will be issued nearer the time of European vehicle homologation.
