The History And Evolution Of Toyota Hilux by Godspower35(m): 10:55am On Aug 10
Toyota Hilux (1968 - 1972)

The Hilux debuted in March 1968 as a new truck with bonnet. The engine was a 1.5-liter 70-horsepower engine (2R), which was also used in the Toyoace. The Hilux used a separate frame construction with a double wishbone / coil spring front axle and a rigid axle / leaf spring rear axle. The transmission was a 4-speed manual transmission with a column shifter. The Hilux had a passenger capacity of three and a payload of 1,000 kg with a loading area of 1,850 mm in length.


Toyota Hilux (1972 - 1978)

The second-generation Hilux was launched in May 1972. Both the long and the short wheelbase followed the mechanical components of its predecessor, although they extended the wheelbase by 10 mm and 45 mm, respectively. The length of the deck and the maximum payload remained unchanged. In addition to the standard model with the existing 1.6-liter engine, the Highway model was introduced with a 2.0-liter 105 hp engine (18R) to facilitate driving on highways.


Toyota Hilux (1978 - 1983)

The third-generation Hilux was launched in September 1978. It's model offered limousine-like features and ride comfort. The variants included three standard-length models and four long-body models. The new super deluxe top-of-the-range model featured an extended cabin that was 90 mm longer than a standard cabin, increasing the interior space. The 1.6-liter 12R-J engine was inherited from the previous generation. The double wishbone front suspension remained unchanged except that the coil springs were replaced by a torsion bar. The front disc brakes were standard on Deluxe and higher models.


Toyota Hilux (1983 - 1988)

The fourth-generation Hilux was launched in November 1983. The rear-wheel drive (RWD) models contains the Comfortable series and the Popular series. The first was the fourth generation model with a redesigned interior and exterior design, while the second was the third generation model that remained in production. All four-wheel models (4WD) received a new body. The external appearance of the fourth generation models was marked by blister-type fenders on the front and rear.


Toyota Hilux (1988 - 1997)

The fifth-generation Hilux, launched in September 1988, embodied the three basic concepts of power, robustness and comfort. In order to improve the functionality as a multi-purpose vehicle (known in Japan as a motor-home or recreational vehicle), the interior has been further improved. The body variants have been reduced to one with press doors and integrated sashes. A major difference between rear-wheel-drive (RWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) models was in the wheel arch extensions: the RWD models had no-fender fenders, while the 4WD models had fender flares with a sturdy look. For this reason, the width of 4WD models became 1,690 mm or 40 mm wider than that of RWD models. The design of the dashboard and other interior fittings was even more like a sedan than before.


Toyota Hilux (1997 - 2004)

The sixth-generation Hilux, launched in September 1997, consisted of a business truck line and a sports pickup line for personal use. The latter have been supplied with equipment and devices suitable for a multi-purpose vehicle, which are characterized by a longer cabin height and length as well as an improved low noise level. The model presented in November with an additional cab and a 100 mm extended body was an open multi-purpose vehicle with a sufficiently long cargo bed and two additional seats in the back of the cabin.


Toyota Hilux (2004 - 2015)

The seventh generation Hilux was launched in August 2004 as a new vans for sale in more than 140 countries worldwide. Inspired by the rugged design of the sixth-generation model, it offered 21st-century customers a high level of durability and comfort, plenty of interior space, enhanced comfort, and the ride comfort of a passenger car as well as the comfort of an SUV.

As part of the Innovative International Multi-purpose Vehicle (IMV) project, Toyota developed five new models on one platform: three pickup models (Hilux), a minivan model (Innova) and a sports utility vehicle model (Fortuner).

In order to offer its customers around the world more attractive products at a lower price and at the same time bring it to the market, the company has also developed optimal production and supply systems worldwide.


Toyota Hilux (2015 - Present)

The eighth Hilux generation was launched in May 2015. To truly understand what customers expect and what challenges they face on a daily basis, the development teams traveled the world, collecting direct feedback from customers, and driving across a variety of streets, feeling different operating conditions.

The entire development concept for the eighth generation Hilux focused on the redefinition of tenacity to make the new Hilux "harder" based on a much wider interpretation of that word. The Hilux design of the eighth generation was not only harder, but also reduced the stress as much as possible. In addition to the conventional concept of toughness, it was characterized by ride comfort that made long, hard trips less strenuous, a quiet cabin that enabled communication in all conditions, and improved range thanks to improved fuel efficiency. You can also count on it to deliver the legendary ruggedness, performance, responsiveness and safety expected of the model.


Toyota has been known for its standard features, whats your say??

Why abusing her. What she said is true, desert human traffickers, military operations, serious construction companies, serious organizations and companies and even all terrorist organizations from Africa to all over the world prefer Hilux for its unmatched performance and reliability. I remember reading an article about a probe by US/UN panel on how the terror organizations got hold of so many units of the Hilux brand.
Have u ever heard of the trade slogan: "Hilux is indestructible"
