The Toyota Hilux started production in March 1968. With every new version, Toyota sought to improve on the vehicle’s foundation, ensuring the next version would be even more unbreakable than the one that came before it. The Toyota Hilux’s widely known invincibility was put to the test by two popular car reviewers who rode the vehicle from northern Canada to the North Pole. Having survived the extreme environments of the Arctic Circle, the credentials of this ultra-tough workhorse vehicle were proven beyond doubt.
The Toyota Hilux has long enjoyed a reputation for being of the most reliable pickup trucks in the market. Now in its eighth generation, Toyota promises the latest version of its esteemed pickup to be stronger and more daring than ever, with improved luxuries and more powerful engines to boot. But that doesn't mean that used Toyota Hilux models for sale are not worth your consideration. As with all Toyota models, a Hilux second hand will always retain a good resale value in the 2nd hand car market. As for the brand new Toyota Hilux, the Toyota Hilux 2017 is available. With this release, Toyota is looking confident enough to lay down its cards on the table and face its competitors head on.

Toyota Hilux Specs and Performance
The 2017 Toyota Hilux has two diesel engines for its latest line. The first is the 1GD-FTV, a 2.8L 16-valve DOHC variable nozzle turbo with front mounted intercooler engine for 4x4 variants that give out 174 horsepower and 420 to 450 Nm of torque. The second engine for the 4x2 variants is the 2GD-FTV with the same technical specs as the 1GD-FTV and puts out 147 horsepower and, depending on the transmission type, can produce 343 to 400 Nm of torque. All of the new Hilux trims are furnished with a new radiator with optimized fins and coolant flow rate that improves heat dissipation performance by 10.4 percent. A new intercooler design is also in place to improve the engine’s temperature efficiency. Meanwhile, a new brake system raises the Hilux’s off-road capabilities to Land Cruiser levels—an active traction control system uses both engine control and brake fluid pressure to distribute torque equally to all four wheels.
The Toyota Hilux Suspension system is made up of a Double Wishbone with Coil Springs at the Front and a Rigid Axle with Leaf Spring at the back. While the old Hilux had some suspension problems, the new one is considerably better in terms of composure and compliance. The ride is considerably better than it was before, and the steering is much improved as well.
