The fact that in this country, Toyota launched the Hilux truck for the markets of Southeast Asia and Thailand itself is already gradually starting to get rid of the restrictions associated with quarantine.
According to preliminary data, the update will be more extensive than a simple “facelift”. Of course, the exterior of the truck correct in accordance with the current standards and Hilux will look like, for example, on the Toyota RAV4. However, expected changes in the engine range and equipment list.
For example, standard 2.8-liter diesel engine should be more powerful and cleaner. In addition, the pick-up promise to replace the multimedia system to a more modern and compatible with Android Auto, and set the driving assistants to fill new functions and to bring to the standard Toyota Safety Sense.
And next year, to the family, rumored to join “charged” version of GR Hilux, which supposedly will get the new diesel V6 3.0 l with an output of about 270 HP. Originally this engine was being developed for the new generation Land Cruiser, which is why the most severe “Hilux” will be released so soon. Toyota allegedly plans to declassify first of the next generation iconic SUV, which debuts diesel, and then deal with the truck.
In selling in some markets (particularly in Asia and Latin America) the new Toyota Hilux will appear in the fourth quarter of this year.
