The iconic pickup truck is about to continue in the same way, according to the latest reports. Famous for its reliability and durability, the Hilux is present all around the world, except North America. Interestingly, some reports suggest its arrival in the U.S. market as well, though we are still waiting to hear something from the officials. In any case, the 2020 Toyota Hilux is about to continue in the same way, with familiar design characteristics, interior design, engines etc. Therefore, expect to see it sometime late in the year.
- Exceptional reliability and durability
- Superior off-road performances
- Wide palette of engines
- Functional cabin
- Costs more than rivals
The current generation of this truck has been around since 2015. Interestingly, it was refreshed just two years later, in 2017. For this occasion, we saw a couple of interesting styling changes, mainly at the front end. Probably the most notable change is a new grille, which resembles the North American truck called Tacoma.
Given the updates, we are pretty sure that the 2020 Toyota Hilux will come without more important changes. The best we can see a couple of new colors but don’t expect anything more. The Hilux will continue to compete with trucks like Nissan Navara, Mitsubishi L200, Isuzu D-Max, Chevy Colorado etc.
When it comes to interior design, the Hilux is a typical working machine. Its cabin is rather functional and practical than stylish. So, most surfaces are made of hard, but extremely durable materials. Also, the base version is pretty much a bare bone, without any more important additional equipment.
Of course, higher trims offer much more. Some reports suggest that the 2020 Toyota Hilux could come with a new trim level, which will be more luxurious. This version would feature a more stylish cabin, finer materials, more standard equipment etc.
The 2020 Toyota Hilux will continue with familiar Toyota engines. There are several gasoline and diesel engines in the offer. The most common engine is a 2.8-liter turbodiesel, which is good for about 177 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. Also, an older-generation 3.0-liter diesel unit is in the offer.
This one delivers around 165 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. When it comes to gasoline engines, there is a well-known 2.7-liter unit with around 160 horsepower. Finally, there is a famous 4.0-liter V6 machine, famous for its amazing durability and reliability. In this case, it delivers around 240 horsepower.
2020 Toyota Hilux Release Date and Price
The 2020 Toyota Hilux won’t feature any important changes, so we don’t expect to see it on the market any earlier than usual. The price largely depends on the market, but base models usually go around $25,000.
