With its roots back in the 60s, the Toyota Hilux has been on our roads for nearly half a century, and it remains one of the most iconic pickups with an incredibly popular fan base all over the world. Production of the Hilux recently surpassed a staggering 18 million units, and this trend is not likely to slow. The Single Cab, Double Cab and Extra Cab bodystyles on offer means that the Hilux has far-reaching desirability, offering everything from everyday family use up to serious off-road lugging. The pickup market is ever-increasing in popularity and features well-established rivals like the Nissan Navara, Mitsubishi L200 and Ford Ranger- but the Hilux has a reputation for being one of the strongest and most durable workhorses out there.
The latest eighth generation Hilux debuted in 2015 and is better than ever, exhibiting improvements across every conceivable aspect. This means that underneath the bonnet the engine range has never been stronger, which includes the all-new 148bhp 2.4-litre four-cylinder diesel unit. This engine can be mated to either a six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic gearbox, and selectable four-wheel drive is available across the whole Hilux range. The 400nM of torque available means that the Hilux is strong enough for towing capacity up to 3,500kg, while accurate light steering ensures that the Hilux is surprisingly manoeuvrable around town.
The interior of the Hilux is spacious, well-appointed and of high build quality, and the dash is more reminiscent of an Auris or Avensis as opposed to a heavy-duty pickup. This makes the Hilux cabin one of the most pleasant in its class, and the trio of trims on offer give scope to add the latest on-board technology. Practicality is also excellent, with the load bay length measuring between 1,525mm and 2,315mm depending on model, and the 130mm increase in width between generations makes the Hilux the widest in its class.
The Hilux has always been a popular model for the Japanese manufacturer, and the latest version appeals to a broader audience than ever before. An impressive cabin and unbeatable reliability sets the Hilux apart from the competition, and rival pickups may struggle to keep up.
