Toyota HiLux Gains Arctic Trucks AT35 Version For UK Explorers

Toyota will unveil the new Arctic Trucks HiLux AT35 at the 2018 Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, UK on April 24, with sales to follow shortly after.

The new Hilux AT35 is the latest product of the long-standing collaboration between Toyota and Arctic Trucks and its debut coincides with the 50th anniversary of the popular -and according to the legends, indestructible- pickup truck.

Toyota’s new HiLux AT35 will be available to both private and commercial customers across the UK, through the company’s official dealer network. The conversion is fully approved by Toyota, meaning the new model comes with the same five-year/100,000-mile warranty as the regular HiLux models.

Toyota and Arctic Trucks achieved widespread recognition through Top Gear’s expedition to the magnetic North Pole. The two companies have established multiple world firsts in both the Arctic and the Antarctic.

The new Toyota HiLux AT35 features 35-inch all-terrain tires, model-specific suspension that allows a secure ride and handling, as well as a fairly obvious 25 percent more ground clearance. As with every HiLux sold in the UK, the only engine option is a 148hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder diesel mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

“We’re excited to bring the AT35 version of the legendary Hilux to the UK”, said Patrik von Sydow, CEO of Arctic Trucks International. “The model is already successful in other countries, so it was a natural decision to develop and launch the vehicle for the UK market.”
