Popular and proven Hilux now comes in 27 models and derivatives for every possible application

Toyota South Africa announced earlier this month that the Hilux range has been bolstered with six new automatic transmission derivatives. The single cab range has been expanded with a new 2.4 GD-6 4×4 SRX 6AT model which joins a pair of newly added 2.8 GD-6 Raider 6AT models in either Raised Body (4×2) or 4×4 configuration.

The Xtra Cab now offers two new derivatives with 6-speed automatic transmissions and 2.8 litre GD-6 engines in either 4×2 or 4×4 configuration. The 2.8 litre diesel kicks out 450 Nm torque.

Completing the Hilux model additions, is a new double-cab variant, offering the stout 110 kW, 400 Nm 2.4 litre GD-6 mill linked to a four-wheel drive transaxle and 6-speed automatic box in mid-grade SRX specification.

Tactile Touch-ups

The interior of the Hilux range has also been tweaked in response to customer preferences. The previous fabric door arm rests have been replaced by durable padded urethane.

The lid on the centre console in all Raiders, now have a soft-touch leather covering.

Safety and Specification Additions

Single cab SRX, Xtra Cab SRX and single cab Raider models receive a substantial upgrade in Active safety with the inclusion of Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) also incorporating Hill Assist Control (HAC) and Trailer Sway Control (TSC).

Newly added fog lamps enhance night-time visibility on all SRX variants (single cab, Xtra-cab & DC).

All Raider derivatives are now fitted with stylish dual tri-spoke 18” alloy-wheels with 265-60-R18 all-terrain tyres.

New LED headlamps not only lend a stylish and luxurious façade to Raider models, but also offer incredibly powerful illumination. Two distinctive strips of Daytime Running Lights improve visibility of the vehicle during the day.

LED fog lamps and auto levelling complete the light set.

Double Cab Raiders now also sport a 220V power outlet.
