HiLux milestone points to style and safety gains

Toyota has announced substantial styling and safety upgrades for the all-conquering HiLux ute, to be introduced from September.

The news comes as HiLux passes 700,000 sales in Australia – 370,000 4x4 models and 330,000 4x2 versions.

The revised HiLux range includes the adoption of life-saving anti-skid brakes as standard across the range.

HiLux receives a newly designed front mask, including a bolder grille, wrap-around headlights, a new front bumper and restyled bonnet.

Fresh styling at the rear includes a newly styled sports bar and clear taillight lenses while the interior gains updates to the seat and door trim.

HiLux customers will have a greater choice of entry-level models with new Workmate variants, while all 4x4 models will have an uprated towing capacity of 2.5 tonnes.

Together with a range of other improvements, new HiLux is expected to offer even better value, ensuring it will continue to dominate Australia's ute landscape.

Last year, HiLux topped the sales charts as the best-selling vehicle in Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory.
