08:25 AM Jan 17, 2022 | Chhavi Kaushik

The Toyota Hilux will be the first lifestyle pickup truck from the Japanese automaker in the country. Official bookings of the model have already been commenced at a token sum of Rs 1 lakh, while its deliveries will begin in March 2022. Prices of the Hilux are slated to be announced on 20th January. We expect it to cost around Rs 30 lakh (ex-showroom). Here, it will be positioned against the Isuzu D-Max that’s current priced between Rs 18.05 lakh – Rs 25.06 lakh (all, ex-showroom).

For power, the new Toyota pickup truck will use the 2.8L turbocharged diesel engine that’s good enough for 204bhp and 420Nm. It can be had either with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque convertor automatic transmission. The same powertrain does duty in the Fortuner SUV. The pickup will come with the 4WD (four-wheel drive) system with electronic differential locks. It will offer multiple driving modes.
