On the outside, Hilux will use a dominating front fascia with muscular bumper. Its hexagonal-shaped grille will feature thick chrome borders, and down below silver colour skid plate will further contribute to its brawny appeal. There will also be LED projector headlamps with integrated DRLs to further add a modern touch. The profile will highlighted by its double-cab body style, vertically stacked tail lamps, and multi-spoke alloy wheels.

On the inside, expect the Hilux to feature a very Fortuner-inspired cabin space. The same was also recently teased in a short promotional video of the vehicle. Thus expect the Hilux to come forward with features such as climate control, a touchscreen infotainment system, leather upholstery, and a driver armrest with storage.

Under the hood, expect the new pick-up to source power from a 2.8-litre diesel engine. This engine will work along with optional manual and automatic transmissions, there will be also be an all-wheel-drive option. 

Expected price:

The starting price tag of the new Toyota Hilux is likely to be kept from 28 lakh (ex-showroom). It will be a rival to the likes of  the Isuzu V-Cross which has a starting price of 22 lakh (ex-showroom).
