Toyota Expands Hilux Product Range

Go Back

Friday, 27th October 2017

The modern world is highly influenced by trends. Trends shape behavior, the way we dress, the food we eat, the places we visit and so too, the cars we drive. The consumer space is driven by those who respond to trends and in an increasingly customer-centric society, the response to a given trend is key.

The light commercial vehicle (LCV) sector is one such facet, where change has been prolific, bringing with it a departure from the traditional “bakkie” market of yesteryear. The increasing use of LCV’s in the ‘leisure’ market has led to a slew of product improvements, additions and expansion of this once primarily utility-focused segment.


The Art of Auto
One of the key areas where a ‘shift’ has taken place is in the transmission arena. Whereas traditional ‘bakkies’ were almost always equipped with manual transmissions, the increased leisure usage as mentioned, has created demand for more comfortable automatic transmissions.

In view of this, The Toyota Hilux range has been bolstered with six new automatic transmission derivatives. The single cab range has been expanded with a new 2.4 GD-6 4x4 SRX 6AT model which joins a pair of newly added 2.8 GD-6 Raider 6AT models in either Raised Body (4x2) or 4x4 configuration. These additions offer utility customers added comfort and convenience, whilst also cutting down on wear and tear of clutches in heavy-duty applications.

The Xtra cab line-up is supplemented with two new ‘self-shifters’, which sees the pairing of the 130 kW 2.8 GD-6 engine and Raider trim level, with a 6-speed automatic transmission in both 4x2 and 4x4 guise. The 450 Nm of Torque on tap translates into effortless acceleration and excellent towing capacity.

Completing the Hilux model additions, is a new double-cab variant, offering the stout 110 kW, 400 Nm 2.4 litre GD-6 mill linked to a four-wheel drive transaxle and 6-speed auto in mid-grade SRX specification.


Tactile Touch-ups
In response to in-depth customer research and feedback, the interior of the Hilux range has also been tweaked in response to customer preferences. The previously employed fabric door arm rests have been replaced by highly durable and hard-wearing padded urethane. Piano Black door trim provides the finishing touch.

Raider models receive an upgrade from a fabric-adorned centre console lid to a new soft-touch leather version.


Safety and Specification Additions
Single cab SRX, Xtra-Cab SRX and single cab Raider models receive a substantial upgrade in Active safety with the inclusion of Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) also incorporating Hill Assist Control (HAC) and Trailer Sway Control (TSC).

Newly added fog lamps enhance night-time visibility on all SRX variants (single cab, Xtra-cab & DC).

The rest of the flagship Raider models are not excluded, receiving an injection of both style and convenience. All Raider derivatives are now fitted with stylish dual tri-spoke 18” alloy-wheels with 265-60-R18 all-terrain tyres completing the rolling stock package.

In addition, new LED headlamps not only lend a stylish and luxurious façade to Raider models, but also offer incredibly powerful illumination of the road ahead. Featuring a distinctive Daytime Running Light (DRL) band which extends outwards from the top grille slat, a strong unified frontal appearance is created. LED fog lamps and auto levelling complete the light set.

Sure to appeal to adventurers, is the addition of a 220V power outlet to Double cab Raider models.


Warranty and Service Plan
All models come standard with a 5-year or 90 000 kilometre service plan (whichever occurs first). A 3-year/100 000 kilometre Warranty is included.
