After ten years, Japanese manufacturer decided to change its Hilux and to completely redesign it. Exterior changes are visible on the spy shots, which could be found around the net. Even with only looking at the camouflaged model, we can notice some major changes.

2016 Toyota Hilux will come with completely changed front end. Front grill is smaller than the predecessor, while headlights come with LED technology. The hood of this popular pick-up is more sculpted and wheel arches are less accentuated. These things all contribute to overall more masculine and more aggressive appearance of Hilux. Toyota also worked on Hilux’s functionality, and the model offers bigger tub, which is also deeper, and allows better load transport.

Regarding dimensions of the new model, it will be changed slightly, by adding few more inches. This enlargement will provide more interior space, and, as we mentioned earlier, more load space, which is always welcomed. Other than more space and better materials, any info about the design changes or features we can expect on new Toyota Hilux is unavailable, or unreliable. As soon as we get some info which indicates the interior enhancement, we will post it, so stay tuned for further updates.

Chevrolet Colorado , GMC Canyon , Nissan Navara are Hilux rivals on the US market. This somewhat determines the position that Hilux could have on US market, which could mean that Toyota may even consider this broadening of its pick-ups launched for US. Price depends on model you choose, since 2016 Toyota Hilux pick-up will be available in Single-Cab, Extra-Cab and Double Cab versions, like its predecessor.  Its previous price went from $20,000 up to $50,000, which will not be changed drastically for the upcoming model. The release of 2016 Toyota Hilux is expected late on next year, 2015, while its sales shouldn’t start before early 2016.
