    Toyota’s lineup of Hilux pickup trucks covers a wide range of price points. However, the lower trims (E 2.4 4x2 MT, G 2.4 J 4X2 MT, and G 2.4 4x2 AT) do fall in the same price category as the Maxus T60.

    The aforementioned versions of the pickup truck sport multi-reflector halogen headlamps, halogen rear combination lamps, power adjust outside rearview mirrors, and intermittent windshield wipers.

    Inside are fabric seats, a urethane steering wheel, an eight-inch audio system, four speakers, and manual or dual-zone automatic climate control A/Cs (depending on the variant).

    Power comes from a 2.4-liter mill mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. The powertrain setup generates 148 horses and 400Nm of torque.

    In terms of safety, you get ABS, an immobilizer, SRS airbags, and three-point seatbelts.S with brake assist and EBD, vehicle stability control (VSC), hill-start assist control (HSA), a reverse camera, and a clearance and back sonar (G variants).

    The E 2.4 4x2 MT is priced at P1,135,000, while the G 2.4 J 4X2 MT is priced at P1,250,000, and G 2.4 4x2 AT at P1,325,000.

    Like the Hilux from Toyota, the Isuzu D-Max also has a lot of variants to offer. In fact, five variants fall under the Maxus T60’s price point.

    These pickup trucks feature multi-reflector halogen headlamps, halogen fog lamps (on select trims), power or manual adjust sideview mirrors (depending on the variant), multi-reflector rear combination lamps, and a bed liner.

    Inside, you can either get a 3.5-inch monochrome or a 4.2-inch electroluminescent instrument cluster. It can also come with either a single-DIN audio head with two speakers or a 10.1-inch full touchscreen infotainment system with six speakers.

    Available engine options include a 1.9-liter and a 3.0-liter diesel engine which can either be mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic with sequential shift.

    Those concerned with safety will find features like a brake override system, ABS, EBD, brake assist, as well as electronic stability control, traction control system, hill-start assist, and hill descent control among others.
