2018 Toyota Hilux
Although the first generation of the Toyota Hilux was introduced in 2016, it seems that this pickup truck has already been on its way to hit the market as a redesigned 2018 Toyota Hilux version. Since this model has been generally fresh, the fans should not expect any major changes, except some new cab and bed configurations, there still be HiLux TRD, and there is a rumor about Toyota Hilux Hybrid version and all the others.
When we talk about the appearance of the 2018 Toyota Hilux, we should say that this model is going to hit the roads as a full-size pickup truck with lots of improvements in terms of overall performance. Namely, this truck has been known as a popular off-roader and the company will tend to keep that kind of reputation. As we have already mentioned, since the exterior design has been fresh, there will be no revolutionary changes in terms of styling. On the other hand, the new Hilux will definitely improve its suspension system, handling, and stability. According to the information we have got, it should also come with an increased towing capacity. All in all, this truck will be an excellent choice for those off-road fans. Although this model remains mostly the same in terms of appearance, you should hope for some aggressive and more muscular lines, especially in the front fascia. We have also mentioned that the truck will be available in several trim levels with different bed configurations and equipment.
The interior features you get will also depend on the trim level you choose, but even the base model should not disappoint you. Of course, those lower trims will offer vinyl instead of leather and other high-quality materials, but you must remember that this truck does not belong to the class of luxurious pickups. Be that as it may, the 2018 Toyota Hilux will offer a spacious and comfortable cabin that should provide pleasure even during those bumpiest rides. The seats will be cozy and covered in leather in higher trim levels. Its high-tech and safety features are also expected to come upgraded. The driver will probably get a 6.1-inch infotainment touch-screen in the center console with lots of options and connectivity features.
