Toyota’s fabled mid-size pickup truck, the Hilux has an unprecedented reputation on the global market thanks to its go-anywhere capability and reliability. In its about half century-long run, the model also earned the attributes such as “unbreakable”. However, it has become hotter than ever in the mid-size global market with the recent appearing of the new and upgraded models. Mercedes entered the segment and the Ford Ranger is more refined and equipped than ever. The ranger Raptor is also available and VW Amarok is also up-to-date.
The Hilux was all-new for the 2015 model year and Toyota recently introduced new versions for some markets. Uniquely styled and equipped models debuted for Thai market at the end of 2017 and Australia has got three new more rugged variants in the dual cab form and with the standard all-wheel drive. These models arrived for the 2018 model year and other markets should also get new variants for the 2019 Toyota Hilux model. The ubiquitous Hilux also gets unique equipment packages depending on the market and the level of the available equipment also varies from the country to country.
