Updated HiLux arriving at Ken Mills Toyota from late August

A bolder, tougher-looking HiLux range has made its global debut along with an expanded line-up and significant improvements to performance, fuel economy, ride comfort, towing and equipment levels.

The updated HiLux, arriving at Ken Mills Toyota from late August, offers beefier output from its biggest-selling 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine due to multiple new components and enhanced cooling.

Maximum power has been increased to 150kW (+15.3 per cent) while peak torque on automatic models has been ramped up to 500Nm (+11.1 per cent).

Fuel consumption also improves by up to 11.1 per cent while tuned accelerator response delivers greater driver control.


The upgraded HiLux range retains a 2.4-litre turbo-diesel and a 2.7-litre four-cylinder petrol engine along with three transmissions, 4x2 and 4x4 drive, three body styles (single, extra and double cabs), two configurations (pick-up or cab-chassis) and five equipment levels (in ascending order: Workmate, SR, SR5, Rogue and Rugged X).

Suspension upgrades - including revised shock-absorber tuning, new bushings and improved leaf-spring design - provide a more comfortable ride, particularly over rough roads and with low loads while maintaining HiLux's legendary off-road capabilities.

In 4x4 models with downhill-assist control, an additional traction control feature when using 2WD mode reroutes torque to assist grip in muddy or grassy conditions on worksites.

Towing capacity for automatic 4x4 HiLux variants - including new double-cab-chassis Workmate and SR5 derivatives - has been upgraded to a maximum of 3500kg to match manual versions. On 4x2 variants, all diesel automatics are now rated at 2800kg, an increase of up to 300kg.

Revised exterior styling delivers a tough, robust on-road presence for HiLux that is more in keeping with the global Toyota ute/truck family and reinforces the renowned go-anywhere credentials of Australia's best-selling vehicle.

A stronger on-road presence is achieved by a large trapezoidal grille that dominates the front design and incorporates more pronounced horizontal elements that deliver a wider, more planted look.

Grille surrounds differ by grade while newly designed headlights are smaller for a "meaner" look and light clusters include LEDs on high grades.

Inside, all models have been upgraded to an 8-inch display screen with enhanced voice recognition and the latest smartphone integration functions, including the adoption of Apple CarPlay®1 and Android Auto™2. SR and higher grades are also equipped with satellite navigation and digital (DAB) radio.

A 4.2-inch multi-information display in the instrument binnacle incorporates a digital speed readout, among other new functions.

Personalisation remains a hallmark of HiLux with a wide range of accessories enabling customers to tailor their vehicles to their own work or leisure requirements.
