The launch of the refreshed version of the Toyota Hilux has been out in the open as it has already been announced on the Facebook page of Toyota Motor Philippines.
As the online reveal date (September 12) draws near, we have been learning bits and pieces about it.
This version is still part of the eighth generation globally for the well-appreciated pick-up truck, which has been around for more than half a century already.
While we are still excited for the online reveal this coming weekend, we got more news on what the upgrades will be for the upcoming version of Toyota Motor Philippines, pick-up truck segment bet.
For starters, the forthcoming Toyota Hilux will have the reliable 2.8 liter GD-FTV diesel engine, it will be around 4-5 percent more fuel efficient and will have a higher output (around 27 horsepower and 50 Nm torque) compared to the current model.
The top four variants will all have clearance sonar, cruise control function, back monitor and tailgate assist that were once a pipe dream in the said model offering.
We have also heard from the grapevine that it is not just the technological features that have been upgraded in the upcoming Toyota Hilux.
According to our source, price of the incoming Hilux from the current will now have a difference P12,000 to P77,000, depending on the variant of your picking.
Earlier, we have also reported that the revamped Hilux will have eight color options, so here are the following hues to choose from:
- Emotional Red (available only 4x4 Conquest models)
- Orange Metallic (available on G variants)
- Nebula Blue
- Crimson Spark Red Metallic
- Attitude Black Mica
- Gray Metallic
- Silver Metallic
- Super White (available for all variants)
Will this model be offered in Balloon Payment Plus? You’re guess is as good as ours. In the meantime, let us all wait for what TMP will announce.
