Added in: News


Remember the truck that Jeremy Claskson once tried to destroy in Top Gear, and failed? This was it, the Hilux – termed ‘indestructible’ by the big man at BBC.

Toyota have now revealed the first official pictures, as well as details on their pick-up truck, which is also one of their best known products across the world. For 2012, the Hilux gets a new bonnet, new grille, new headlamps and new bumper.

From the inside the Hilux has a new dash, with features such as a 6.1 inch touchscreen and a horizontal instrument cluster. Audio system now includes Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port.

Engine options are a 142bhp 2.5 D-4D and a 169bhp 3.0 D-4D.  Tranmission duties are taken care of by a standard 5-speed unit, or an optional five speed auto.

    I have also seen this thing being tested around Nasik.. Once one of these happened to cross me.. so I immediately turned around.. but there was no way I could keep up with this.. NOt even on the P220 in a village 2-lane road. The vehice / driver was waaay too fast. (I think he was going merrily in the 150-160 region on speedo)

    P.S.: It was the middle of the night… 2AM I guess..
