As you, probably, already know, Toyota has just introduced the long-awaited a mid-size truck sold in well over 100 countries worldwide, the mighty 2016 Hilux. It happens to be one of the most popular that this Japanese maker’s pickup truck ever been made. Moreover, it might happen to be one of the most popular pickup trucks sold throughout the whole world, but, unfortunately, the all-new 2016 Toyota Hilux won’t, still, be available for purchase in the American soil. However, that fact shouldn’t be stopping us to find out a little bit more regarding this magnificent made truck, who knows, maybe some of you may be considering to import this beautiful beast.
2016 Toyota Hilux Exterior
By passing a whole decade, one would expect a radical makeover, which will shake the Hilux from its foundations, but, sadly (or luckily) this won’t be the case with this brand new designed variant. The Japanese pickup truck maker has decided to, only, slightly facelift overall Hilux general appearance. So, this, particularly, means that the all-new Hilux will remain faithful its original roots, and will come along with its characteristic angular lines over its body.
However, it is intended that the front end fascia will “suffer” most of the changes and the all-new Toyota Hilux 2016 will come along available with a sizable three-slat grille, a muscular-looking bumper and, somehow, elongated headlights, which should make newly designed Hilux to look more serious, highly desirable and, a bit, more attractive.
This whole lineup will be made up of three body styles: single cab, extra cab, and double cab. Please, note that a cab-chassis is planned to be introduced a little bit later, when the production will be in a run.
Interior of Toyota Hilux 2016
When it comes to the interior design, it is planned to be, at least, a half as spectacular, as it is the Hilux exterior. This, in fact, will mean that the brand new 2016 Toyota Hilux will follow the trucking industries of a gradual shift towards more car-like interiors.
It its inner part, we should expect to see slightly upgraded the instrument cluster that will feature a configurable TFT screen, the outstanding steering commanded system, which will provide managing through an ergonomic three-spoke multi-function wheel, and high-zoot trims, by which you will be able to order with a large touch screen that is going to run the latest generation of Toyota’s infotainment system.
New Toyota Hilux Engine
It is still too early, even, to speculate upon a new generation of motors that are going to be placed under the hood of the brand new Hilux. There are planned to come along equipped with a very wide range of the most different powertrains, due to the fact that the all-new 2016 Toyota Hilux will feature in so many markets, all over the Globe. The vast majority of them, the most likely, will be the petrol options that will come in a range from turbo fours to strong V6’s with more torque and far better towing abilities.
However, for those customers, who will desire to have more power and better fuel efficiency engine option, will have to opt for a diesel variant of the powertrain. Of course, it is planned that brand new designed 2016 Toyota Hilux to come along available with both rear and all-wheel drive mode configurations, as always, and transmission options will also depend on a market and chosen powertrain, as well.
