Which HiLux Is Your Rugged New Workmate?
Every Aussie tradie knows the value of a great ute, and there’s no doubt your rugged new workmate should be a HiLux. The only question is, which HiLux fits your bill best? The HiLux range is an all-rounder, and if you want to choose the right one, you need to consider a few things first. Off-road capability, storage space, reliability and fuel consumption all matter. Do any of these have your attention?
First thing’s first though. Here’s the similarities.
The HiLux range
Every member of the HiLux range comes with a 5-star ANCAP rating. The WorkMate and SR are all available in single, extra, or double cabs, depending on your needs. The SR5 is available in extra or double. The Rogue and Rugged X come standard as double cabs. The WorkMate 4×2 is a 2.7-litre engine; the 4×4 is 2.4-litre. The rest of the HiLux range packs a punch with the high-powered, turbo diesel 2.8-litre engine.
The WorkMate offers 2800kg towing capacity, with all other models offering 3500kg. While they all come with the 8-inch audio display and smartphone connectivity, if tunes are important to you, the Rogue offers a nine-speaker premium system.
If you're looking for a reliable workmate, look no further than the HiLux WorkMate. It's a solid workhorse, and it is perfectly suited to being a straight work vehicle – though if you want it for an everyday drive, it can do that, too. With the option for a double cab, you can pile the kids and the dogs in for a weekend getaway.
It's great for tradies - and while it can handle dirt roads, it's probably not what you want for off-roading.
With five seats and four-wheel drive, there's a lot to love about the HiLux SR. It has a robust cabin, and the suspension holds up well when it's fully loaded. The rear locker and ground clearance are ideal for off-road use.
A superb model for tradies, and even better, you can take it off-road, so it’s ideal for loading the kids and pets up for a long trip.
Not only will it do everything you expect of it, but it'll also do it easily. It's great for big trips, off-roading, and serves as an excellent workhorse, too.
Whether you're going off-road with the dogs, heading to work with a raft of tools, or looking to take the kids out for the weekend, the HiLux SR5 does it all.
The Rogue is all HiLux, but it has an improved ride and updated styling. You can feel the added grunt, but you can see the unique grille and front bumper. It's a more robust iteration than previous versions. It's a well-balanced, street-smart ute that can easily switch gears to go off-road.
The HiLux Rogue is fit for any service, from operating as your workmate to off-roading, and carting your family around - whether they be furry or human.
HiLux Rugged X
The HiLux Rugged X is the best of the HiLux range because it was built to dominate, whether you're on or off-road. It was made for the extreme, epitomised by features such as the bash plate and front bull bar. The HiLux Rugged X has all the power you need to tow and haul anything, whether it's a boat, a family of dogs, or all your work gear. It features Toyota Safety Sense and a 5-star ANCAP rating.
Which HiLux is best?
The best part of the Toyota HiLux range is it's ideal for tradies, off-roading, dogs, and families. So, whatever your needs, there's a good chance the right HiLux can meet all of them. Who doesn't love a multi-purpose vehicle?
Better yet, with a valid ABN, you can bag yourself a deal – a max finance term of 48 months at 2.9% APR. You can drive away with a HiLux for as little as $27,990. You'll also be eligible for capped price servicing. Additionally, you can speak to your accountant about an asset write-off.
