Toyota Motor Philippines launched a 2020 update on one of its most popular vehicles in its lineup – the Toyota Hilux. Its rugged looks and powerful performance combined with Toyota’s signature quality, durability and reliability further establishes the Hilux as the the Philippines’ best-selling pick-up truck. TMP aims to maintain a large market share in this segment with the new Hilux, as it did in 2019 when it garnered 30.5% of the market. The New Toyota Hilux comes with improvements on its looks, performance, and features, and is available in 4×4 Conquest and 4×2 Conquest variants, G AT and MT, and E MT.
Toyota introduces the new Hilux in Emotional Red, a color exclusive
to its Conquest variants. Also exclusive to Conquest variants are the bi-beam LED headlamps and LED rear combination lamps with line guide, and sports bar with LED lamps. The tailgate gets the signature Hilux branding, with an over fender garnish and Conquest decals on both sides of the cargo bed. The deck space offers plenty of cargo room with tail gate assist and bedliner for Conquest variants. These exclusives make the Hilux Conquest tougher, more rugged and more exciting to drive.
Keyless entry is available for Conquest G and E grades, with Conquest variants getting Smart Entry and Push Start System. All of these grades also have power adjust with auto fold for side-mirrors and speed-sensing door locks. At the center of the Hilux dashboard is a 4.2” TFT multi-information display, and easily accessible controls with the steering wheel switches and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility for Conquest, G, and E grades. Enjoy an easier drive with Cruise Control for Conquest variants.
The new Hilux 4×4 variants are powered by 2.8L 1GD-FTV engine which gives 201 HP (204 Ps) max output, 500 Nm max torque for the AT variant, and 420 Nm max torque for the MT variant with Intelligent Manual Transmission. The 4×2 Conquest, G and E variants get the 2.4L 2GD-FTV engine with 148 HP max output, and 400 Nm max torque. Both the 1GD and 2GD engine are improved for the MC Hilux and enjoys 4-5% improvement in fuel efficiency versus the previous generation Hilux.
All three grades of the Hilux come with SRS airbags (7 for the 4×4 Conquest A/T variant), 3-pt. ELR seatbelts, Anti-Lock Brake System with Brake Assist and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Vehicle Stability Control, and Hill-Start Assist Control. Conquest 4×4 variants also have Downhill Assist Control and Active Traction Control. Clearance sonars are available for Conquest while back sonars are available for G grades, and the reverse camera is available for Conquest variants.
Aside from Conquest, G and E grades, Toyota continues to offer the Hilux J in 4×4 and 4×2, Cab and Chassis, and FX for its fleet and business partners. They are also introducing the Hilux Cargo – a rear seat-less, windowless, and more affordable variant powered by the same 2GD engine. The new Hilux Cargo is specifically designed for the more demanding needs of
mobilizing goods and services.
The New Toyota Hilux will be available in all of Toyota Motor Philippines’ 70 dealerships across the country by September 14, 2020 for the Hilux Conquest, G, and E variants, while the Hilux Cargo variant will be available on October 26, 2020.
