Toyota Takes The Hilux To The Black
This all new Hilux Black which is not destined for Malaysia is adorned by a range of exterior and interior features, which are presented in black in order to enhance its toughness and appeal. To go into details, this version is includes a combination of brooding black side steps, sports bar and leather-accented interior trim including the six-way adjustable power-operated driver’s seat.
What is more, even the newly designed 17-inch six-spoke alloy wheels are painted black. As you can see, this vehicle also includes prominent new front and rear bumpers that give the HiLux Black a lower stance. This muscular look is accentuated by the black extensions below the fog light surrounds.
In addition, the new large black lower front grille features a stylish red stripe along the bottom edge, which makes the Hilux more aggressive. LED daylight running lamps are also present. Toyota’s global partner TRD was also involved in the creation of this special edition. TDR provided only the cosmetic enhancements such as its familiar logo on the wheel caps and the front bumper extension.
The model is powered by Toyota’s torquey 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, which is coupled with either a five-speed manual gearbox or five-speed automatic transmission. The extensive feature list includes a reversing camera and a satellite navigation system with SUNA™ Live Traffic updates, which all are displayed in the 6.1-inch display audio screen.
The Japanese company is offering in this case the exterior color choices on black and white, called Eclipse Black and Glacier White. In 4×4 guise, Toyota HiLux Black Edition will have fewer than 1,000 units produced. It is based on the SR5 4×4 Double Cab pickup and has the maximum five-star safety rating.
