2018 Toyota Hilux vs Toyota Tacoma: Brothers In Arms

By  | 

Toyota Tacoma is one of the best selling trucks here in the US and while the Toyota Hilux is not being offered here, it is one of the best selling truck in other markets.

Although most people would believe that the Hilux was a spin-off from the Tacoma, it was actually the other way round but that was years ago and since then, both these models have turned into completely different trucks and caters to different needs.

Compared to the Tacoma, the Hilux has a gentler exterior design. It has a rounded outline instead of the shape edges that the Tacoma has. In terms of performance, the Toyota Hilux is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder diesel engine that will be offering about 150hp and 295lb ft of torque.

The Tacoma, on the other hand, will be powered by a 2.7-liter engine that will be offering about 159hp and 180lb ft of torque. If you were given a chance to pick one, which one will it be?
