Toyota has enhanced Australia's 'unbreakable' best-selling car - the Hilux - with a makeover from the Toyota Racing Development parts division.

04 Apr 2017 | International News : Australia

Toyota has created the boldest, most aggressive-looking production Hilux yet by teaming Australia's 'unbreakable' best-selling car with the company's Toyota Racing Development (TRD) parts division. 15 new components, seven of which come from the TRD stable, transform the tough 4x4 turbodiesel HiLux into an even more rugged workhorse. The novel package is exclusively available for buyers of the top-of-the-range Hilux SR5 double cab with leather-accented interior trim and either black or white exterior paint.

The transformation starts at the front with a dramatic red TRD-branded skid plate, which provides a stark contrast to the powerful new black TRD grille, TRD lower bumper cover and TRD fender flares. Edgy matte black 18-inch, six-spoke alloy wheels and a robust black sports bar enhance the unabashed macho look of this special Hilux, which also features black mouldings along the body side and the leading edge of the bonnet.

The striking exterior makeover is completed at the rear through the addition of a towing kit (tongue, ball and wiring harness), ute liner, soft tonneau cover, taillight covers and TRD mudflaps. Inside, the tough, functional and comfortable Hilux adds to its refinement with TRD carpet floor mats and, for automatic variants, a TRD gear knob. The TRD-enhanced Hilux is powered by Toyota's 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine that delivers 174bhp of power with peak torque of 450Nm (six-speed electronic automatic) and 420Nm (six-speed intelligent manual).
