Toyota Hilux Spotted On TVC Shoot Ahead Of Launch | V3Cars
Toyota Hilux is one of the most anticipated cars to launch in the Indian market. Some images of the Hilux surfaced while on a TVC shoot in Gurugram ahead of its launch in January 2022. Toyota updated the Hilux for the international markets last year with a new design and better features. To keep the costs in check, Toyota will locally assemble the Hilux. The Hilux will compete with the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross.
We expect the Hilux to come with two engine options - a 2.4-litre diesel and a 2.8-litre diesel. Both the engines may retain the same state of tune as that of the Innova and Fortuner. The 2.4-litre diesel engine will churn out 150PS and 400 Nm of torque, mated with either a 6-speed MT or AT. The 2.8-litre engine, on the other hand, will offer 204PS and 500 Nm of torque. The Hilux may offer the latter only with a torque converter gearbox with an exclusive 4WD. Unlike the international markets, Toyota will offer the Hilux in dual-cab variants only.
As we can see in the pictures, Toyota have used a generous amount of chrome embellishments on the truck to gel it with Indian taste. On the design’s front, the Hilux gets a bold chrome grille with large surrounds, multi-spoke alloy wheels, bumper chrome surrounds, side body cladding and side steps.
Some strong rumours suggest that Toyota may offer the Hilux in two trim levels - Standard and Hilux Reo. Toyota will offer the Hilux with multiple features like touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, LED headlights and taillights, drive modes, keyless entry, push-button start and many more. We expect Toyota to launch the Hilux in India around January 2022. The prices of the Hilux may fall in the region of Rs. 28 - 35 Lakh ex-showroom.
