According to the information our team has recently got, the off-road enthusiasts will soon have the chance to see another next-generation midsize truck that has been on its way to hit the market as a 2019 Toyota Hilux model. Besides its updates in terms of design, the new Toyota Hilux will definitely show some improvements under the hood and appear more efficient and eco-friendly.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota Hilux, this midsize truck will keep its reputation of a powerful off-roader and mostly remain faithful to its buyers. It means that the fans shouldn’t expect any revolutionary changes on this truck, but rather some minor updates and refreshments. It has been said that the company will use some lightweight materials for the chassis that will now be much more enhanced. This weight loss will only improve the overall performance of the new Hilux. Also, the truck is expected to get a better suspension system which boosts its off-road capability. This model will also appear with significantly increased towing capacity. The truck will also appear bigger in size than its predecessor, which will provide better handling and stability. All in all, riding in the new Hilux must be a real adventure. When it comes to visual features, most of the redesign will probably happen around the front fascia where you will find more angular design and a bit muscular design.
Thanks to its larger dimensions, that we have already mentioned, the 2019 Toyota Hilux will provide lots of space for you and your passengers as well as a roomy cargo bed. Needless to say, you probably shouldn’t hope for any luxury inside since this truck has been known as a work-oriented and a functional off-roader. However, the seats should be improved and covered in some high-quality materials. They will be comfortable and supportive and use even some fine leather in higher trim levels. Other updates include its high-tech area so the driver can expect an information display in the instrument cluster as well as a 6.1-inch touch-screen display in the center console. The latest infotainment system will provide numerous upgraded features and connectivity options.
The 2019 Toyota Hilux will lower the CO2 emissions and appear more efficient than its predecessor. It will probably offer more than one engine choice under its hood, including its 2.8-liter with 174 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque. The other version might come with a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel that delivers the output of 169 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque. It is expected to be paired with a five-speed automatic transmission, but we are waiting for more information at the moment.
