The current model from the Hilux is around for almost 8 years now and it also may appear the ideal time of changing this model. However, Toyota is planning on improving the current model instead of changing it with a brand new design, better interior quality and much more equipment than before. The 2015 Toyota Hilux is available towards the buyers from the beginning of 2015 with a base price much like that from the old model, at around 27. 000$. To the money you can get the 2 wheel drive model as the four wheel drive you will set you back around 40. 000$.


During the previous generation the car now features bigger wheel as standard and also a larger choice of alloy wheels. Also, the front grille is bigger and also the headlights also received LED clusters.


The new Hilux will feature improved interior. You‘ll as standard a audio system, manual air conditioner and adjustable front seats. The greater expensive models get full leather interior, an improved audio system, a 6 inch navigation system and climate control. You will often get electric and heated front seats being an optional extra.


Just as using the previous generation, we‘ll presumably obtain a set of two diesel engines and also a petrol one. The diesel will certainly be either a 2. 5-liter inline 4 that‘s pretty good but lacks high end power and also a 3-liter one that‘s a lot more powerful and refined and it is perfect for those who wish to tow with the car. The latter offers 171 horsepower and 360 N*m of torque which ought to be greater than enough for anything. The petrol engine is really a 4 liter V6 that offers 240 horsepower in its basic form and around 300 horsepower to the supercharged model (only available in Australia in the meantime ).


The conventional transmission to the 2. 5 liter diesel is really a 5 speed manual that‘s pretty good, precise and offers a pleasant feedback though it‘s quite hard to alter gears by it. The optional 5 speed automatic is really a far better option since it is smooth while changing gears and it’s very simple to use. The 3 liter diesel and also the 4 liter petrol engine obtain the 5 speed automatic as their only option.

Once we said before, you will get the 2015 Toyota Hilux with either rear wheel drive or four wheel drive. The rear wheel drive version features lower ground clearance and a better payload as the four wheel drive one features front and rear lockable differentials in addition to a high and low gear ratios.
