Taiwanese tuning studio RAD has presented a set of improvements for the Toyota Hilux: in a new body kit, most of the parts of which were printed on a 3D printer, the pickup looks aggressive. The tuners installed a power bumper, a raised hood with an air intake and wheel arch extensions, as well as increased ground clearance (an increase can reach 152 millimeters) and replaced the radiator grill. The tuning kit was named Pathfinder and costs six thousand dollars.
Hilux has received Old Man Emu suspension components, with customers having a choice of three lift options: 51, 102 or 152 millimeters. In addition to all of the above, Hilux has acquired automatically reclining side steps. It is clarified that most of the body kit elements were printed on a 3D printer, and the power plant was left unchanged.
Earlier this month, the Hilux was unveiled, featuring a 5.0-liter V12 engine paired with a Toyota Century four-speed automatic, a project from Fatboy Fab Works. The engine was retrofitted with Garrett GT35 turbochargers, as a result of which the output was increased from the original 280 horsepower to 547 horsepower.
Toyota Hilux underwent restyling in 2020, and then got factory tuning from the Gazoo Racing division. This includes the installation of electrically operated side steps and a roll bar, a new exhaust system with large tailpipes and reaction rod kits for the front and rear axle that will improve cornering stability. Any of the items can be purchased separately, and the complete set is priced at 305,800 yen ($ 2,750).
