Toyota which is a well-reputed brand is going to introduce a new segment in the Indian market which is going to be a Pickup truck. However, this segment is already introduced by the manufacturers such as Isuzu, Mahindra, etc. But they are unfortunately a huge success. Moreover, the Pickup truck from Mahindra which happens to be a Bolero does not come under the segment of the luxurious trucks and is mostly owned for the commercial markets.
Toyota in the coming months is going to introduce its new Pickup truck named Hilux which will be based on the same platform shared by the Fortuner and the Innova Crysta. Moreover, much of the features owned by the Hilux will be much similar to that of the Toyota Fortuner.
Engine and Specs
On to the point, the Toyota Hilux can be available in two engine options as expected till now, the first one is the 2.4L Diesel engine which can be available with 150HP of power and the other one can be a 2.8L Diesel unit which will be able to produce a maximum power of 204HP just like the Toyota Fortuner.
Talking about its transmission options the Toyota Hilux will feature both manual and automatic transmission systems. However, there are no exact details about the automatic gearbox type.
Some major highlights under the technological roof are as under:
- The front features a large hexagonal grille along with LED DRLs. On the sides the main highlight is alloy wheels ofcourse along with the Body cladding and flared wheel arches.
- The rear styling like most of the pickup trucks is simple and plain.
- It can feature a 8-inch infotainbment system featuring Android Auto and Apple Car Play in its connectivities, taken form the Fortuner.
- Other details will be available at the time of reveal. So stay tunned! 🙂
