This is first all-new Hilux in a decade, a vehicle that dominates its segment in terms of sales. This eighth generation model gets a new engine, body, interior and chassis. It’s an all-new model that is expected to run until at least 2024 or 2025. Expect updates between now and then, but the basic shape and underbody mechanicals will live on for the best part of a decade.
Not as polished on-road as a Ranger, but the Hilux brings serious off-road cred and a vastly improved driving experience to make it one of the standouts in a competitive ute segment. (Plus) Rugged and tough design; bulletproof reputation and resale; spacious dual-cab. (Minus) Jolts over bumps unladen; new diesel lacks sparkle; evidence of belt-tightening inside.
