The Toyota Hilux is expected to be powered by 2.4-litre or 2.8-litre diesel engines that will be sourced from the Innova and the Fortuner, respectively. Both manual and automatic transmissions, as well as all-wheel drive, are expected to be available options for the vehicle.
The Hilux will be available in its most recent generation, which features a large and bold hexagonal front grille flanked by LED projector headlamps, giving the pickup a commanding presence on the highway. Other features of the Hilux include chunky plastic cladding around the wheel arches, alloy wheels with a design that is similar to the Fortuner’s, vertically stacked tail lamps, and a double cab body style, among other things.
We haven’t seen any pictures of the interior yet, but we expect it to be similar to the current-generation Fortuner, which includes a black theme, an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a push start/stop button, a JBL stereo system, and leather upholstery.
According to expectations, the Toyota Hilux will be priced between Rs 25 lakh and Rs 30 lakh (ex-showroom).
The Toyota Hilux’s rivals will be the Isuzu V-Cross pickup truck, according to the company.
