TOYOTA Hilux Single Cab 2011 - Present
The Toyota Hilux is one of the most imposing utility vehicles out there, and it just got even more so with the Japanese company announcing design changes and more power for the 2012 model year.
The Hilux will come with anti-lock brakes across the board, though the carmaker hasn’t mentioned anything about standard ESP. The new model will also be available in more variants, including new entry-level Workmate models, as well as offer visual revisions to the front and rear, and new seats and interior door trims throughout the range.
The design of the dash has been improved upon with the horizontal centre instrument cluster reinforcing the breadth and roominess of the cabin. It incorporates Toyota Touch, a 6.1”, full colour, touch screen multimedia unit. Toyota says the quality and feel have been revised, and all the colors fit together more uniformly, highlighted by the addition of silver ornamentation.
On the outside, the front end sees the biggest changes, as everything from the A-pillars forward being redesigned: new bonnet, radiator grille, headlamps and front bumper.
