2017 Toyota Hilux

2017 Toyota Hilux

One of the trucks with a very long tradition and popularity among off-road fans is about to surprise you with another generation. And yes, we are taking the new 2017 Toyota Hilux, a powerful, well-trained and full load truck that is easily identifiable within the next year. In order to keep up with modern trends and keep in the overloaded truck section, Toyota has made many significant changes in its iconic model and the simple announcement caused both excitement and fear on their main rivals such as the Honda Ridgeline, the Nissan Navara and the Ford ranger.

2017 Toyota Hilux Exterior

As for the exterior design of the new 2017 Toyota Hilux, the truck will maintain its typical design with the long and rounded nose and a very large trunk with a great capacity.


To avoid the 2017 Toyota Hilux  to become sluggish and bulky, the manufacturers used a good combination of aluminum and carbon fiber. This will allow the reduction of the overall weight as well as it will increase the performance. Since the 2017 Toyota Hilux is an SUV model, it was absolutely necessary to have a bigger bumper, grille and more aggressive headlights. The rear gets new taillights and perhaps a new exhaust system as well. There will also be more powerful and massive tires.

2017 Toyota Hilux Interior


Although this is a truck it will not only be more important to make the cabin an organized and functional space, but it’s also necessary to pay attention to the decorative details that can affect the appeal of the vehicle. The five passengers will be placed in trimmed leather seats that provide enough leg and head room to feel comfortable and get great lumbar support. There will also be all the necessary safety features that allow passengers to enjoy the 2017 Toyota Hilux on their off-road rides without worrying about their safety. The best materials that cover the rest of the interior will make the 2017 Toyota Hilux look polished, modern and greatly enhanced. There will be technological support in the form of a climate control within 3 zones, Wi-Fi, satellite navigation, the new audio system and remote access.



Of course, engine options in the new Toyota Hilux 2017 should be strong and durable enough because they must carry a heavy load and go through the most problematic areas. One of the options is a 2.7 L, 4-cylinder engine that produces a 180 horsepower and a 182 lb-ft of torque. There will be a second option, a Cummins 2.8L engine with a power of 180 hp and 340 lb-ft of fantastic torque. And the last possible engine will be 4.0L, V-6 engine with 200 horsepower. All of these will be paired with the 6-speed transmission system.

Release Date And Price

We hope we can see the new 2017 Toyota Hilux available by the end of this year, somewhere in November, but it is still uncertain. The expected price is $25,000 for the standard base model and $40,000 for the most advanced models.
