Toyota’s next-gen 2016 Hilux pickup truck was spotted completely undisguised at what appears to be a dealer lot in Thailand, less than 48 hours before the official presentation this Thursday, May 21.
Two versions of the double-cab model were photographed by members of the Hiluxrevo forum, including a middle trim variant in silver and the higher-grade “Revo” edition in red sporting LED daytime running lights and a spiffed up interior packed with features such as leather upholstery, a multifunction steering wheel, and a big screen for the infotainment system.
While this is the Asian-spec version of the new Hilux, we don’t expect any notable cosmetic changes for other markets around the world – something we’d say is good for the inside, not so good for the outside…
As far as the engine range is concerned, we know that in Thailand, Toyota will offer four choices including a 2.4-liter turbo diesel in two states of tune with 150PS (148hp) and 167PS (165hp), a 2.8-liter turbo diesel with 177PS (175hp) and a 2.7-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder gasoline mill pushing out 166PS (164hp). Both manual and automatic transmissions will be available.
