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

New Hilux models introduced
The Invincible X has a revised frontal treatmen including a new grille with gloss black inserts and contrasting chrome frame, plus a new-look front bumper, fog lights and silver under-run.
At the rear there is a new step and a silver under-run beneath the licence plate. 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.
The Invincible X matches the existing Hilux Invincible specification with Toyota Safety Sense, including Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Warning and Road Sign Assist, plus cruise control, Toyota Touch 2 with Go multimedia system with navigation and six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, rear-view camera, automatic air conditioning and leather upholstery. It is powered by a 148bhp 2.4-litre D-4D engine and equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Hilux Invincible X is also offered in a new Limited Edition version. This come in two body colours: Scorched Orange or Nebula Blue. These provide a strong contrast with the model’s black exterior styling elements, including black 18-inch alloys, side steps and high-over bar. In other respects, the Limited Edition matches the Invincible X, including the new all-black cabin treatment.
