The iconic truck will come without bigger changes, according to the latest reports. The 2019 Toyota Hilux is going to adopt all those changes that we’ve seen on the recently updated model but probably won’t add anything more important.
History of this legendary model started five decades ago, in 1968. So far, we have seen so many versions of it. There are total eight generations of it so far. The current model is present since 2015 and it received an update last year, as we already mentioned. Considering all this, it is hard to expect some bigger changes for the next year.
The current model features a whole bunch of new details and 2019 Hilux will continue in the same manner. Once again, we are going to see an exceptional truck, with excellent capabilities and attractive and comfortable design. Expect its arrival late in the year.
2019 Toyota Hilux without bigger changes
Just like we mentioned, it is hard to expect bigger changes only one year after the update. We saw numerous changes last November. There are many new visual details, especially at the front. The 2019 Toyota Hilux will continue in the same way, adopting a new front bumper with LED fog lights from the 2020 Tacoma Diesel model. There are few other changes, but these are most important. In all other aspects, this extraordinary truck remains the same. With its unmatchable capabilities, it will definitely continue to carry its ultimate-truck reputation. With its excellent chassis, it is capable of going through all terrains and all weather conditions as well. Still, we could see smaller tweaks for the next year. The 2019 Toyota Hilux could get a few new color options, as well as some new interior color schemes.
2019 Toyota Hilux interior design
The 2018-year model received some interior novelties too. Still, those weren’t so significant. There are few tweaks on the dashboard, while the rest of novelties are about new standard equipment. Considering all this, it is hard to expect something more for the next year. The 2019 Toyota Hilux will continue in the same way, featuring same cabin design. Lists of standard features should also remain pretty much the same, although some smaller revisions are possible. You should consider that this legend is present across the globe, so equipment organization could vary from market to another. Still, in most of the countries, it comes in three trim levels. Those are Active, Icon and Invincible. Each comes with a unique list of standard features and aims for different types of drivers.
2019 Toyota Hilux engines
Once again, this truck is available all around the world. So, it’s no wonder that there is an extremely wide powertrain offer. Combining all versions from different markets, there are total nine different engines that company puts under the hood of this truck. Still, some of the engines are more common and used in almost all countries.
For example, there is a 2.4-liter diesel unit with 155 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. On the other side, many drivers prefer older 3.0-liter V6 which delivers 163 horses. Few excellent gasoline engines are in the offer as well. One of them is a 2.7-liter unit with 160 horses and 181 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, there is a famous 4.0-liter V6, with a max output of 235 horsepower and 237 pound-feet of torque. Transmission choice could vary, depending on the engine.
2019 Toyota Hilux release date and price
The 2019 Toyota Hilux should come by the end of the year. Price should remain unchanged. Base models will go around 30.000 dollars. Although a class-leader, this truck has several rivals. Some of them are Nissan Navara, Chevy Colorado, Isuzu D-Max, Mazda BT-50 and others.
