2016 Toyota Hilux: Too Ugly For International Markets?

By  | 

Toyota has launched the 2016 Toyota Hilux in Bangkok and Sydney but not internationally, so is the vehicle too ugly for the international markets?

Toyota said that developing the Toyota Hilux was something of a bit of a challenge. The challenges came from testing it in weather conditions that ranged from roads that were flooded to muddy forest regions and deserts. The vehicle does offer an interior that has a new upgrade and the suspension is better, while improvements have been made to the fuel economy,

The Toyota Hilux is arriving with three choices of suspension, the standard for roads, comfort for driving in the towns and city and heavy duty for when carrying heavy loads.

The interior of the Toyota Hilux comes with a 7 inch touch display for multi-media and this brings with it a navigation system that is improved, along with upgraded materials and trims.

The Toyota Hilux is offered in a choice of engines. In Australia there are two gas engines and two turbo diesel engines. There is the 2.8 litre four cylinder which offers 331 pounds of torque, the 2.4 litre inline with four cylinders offering 295 pounds and all of the engines come with the six speed automatic or the manual.

The Toyota Hilux is going to be offered with four-wheel and two-wheel drive and it can tow up to 6, 600 pounds.

In Australia the Toyota Hilux will come with a choice of 31 different variations over three cabins. These are the regular, extended and the crew cab and in three choices of trims. These are the Workmate, SR and SR5. Over in Thailand the vehicle is only going to be made in the regular and extended cabs.

Nothing has been said about the Toyota Hilux in the international markets, so perhaps the looks might put people off?
