Toyota hasn’t launched any new products in India for quite some time. Since collaborating with Maruti, he has only launched rebadged Maruti products. But that will change soon as Toyota brings some of its global products to India. The first of these will be the Hilux pickup truck. Recently, the Hilux was spotted on a marquee shoot in India. So how will Toyota price the Hilux? In today’s article we will see the Toyota Hilux India price.
Toyota Hilux India Price
Toyota will need to price the Hilux competitively in order to dominate the market. Since it will share several parts with local Fortuner and Innova products, we would expect Toyota to price it between Rs 18 lakh and Rs 25 lakh (ex-showroom). At this price point, the Hilux has the potential to completely reign in this segment due to its popularity and capabilities. It is only the competition will be the Isuzu D-Max which starts from Rs 17 lakh (x-showroom).
Dimensions and design
The Hilux comes with various cabin options like Crew Cab, Regular Cab, and Smart Cab. Toyota could also have these cabin options in India. In terms of dimension, it will be between 5,275-5,345mm in length, 1,800-1855mm in width, and 1,690-1810mm in height. It sits on a 3085mm wheelbase and has a ground clearance of 279mm. From a design standpoint, the Hilux looks like a typical Toyota SUV. It gets an aggressive grille design with a lot of chrome use. The side and rear profile gives it an all-terrain urban vibe.
Which engine Toyota will offer on the Hilux is still a mystery, but we expect the brand to offer both gasoline and diesel engines. The gasoline engine could be the 2.7 liter gasoline engine used on the Innova. Toyota may offer different diesel engines on the base model and the top model. Lower variants could get Innova’s 2.4-liter diesel engine while higher variants could get the 2.8-liter diesel engine used on the Fortuner. We expect both engines to come with manual and automatic transmission options.
Since the Hilux is aimed at modern buyers, Toyota will load it with a decent amount of features as well. It will come with an 8.0 inch infotainment touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, alloy rims, automatic climate control, and more.
