As far as our team has been informed, the truck fans should know that the next-generation Toyota Hilux has been on its way to hit the roads soon as a 2019 Toyota Hilux USA model. This enhanced mid-size truck is about to reveal some serious changes and updates, including its more efficient and eco-friendly engine choice under the hood.
When it comes to exterior, the 2019 Toyota Hilux will keep its recognizable powerful styling that simply promises successful working capacity and great off-road adventure. This mid-size truck will undergo some significant enhancements in terms of exterior design. First of all, the carmaker will improve its chassis and probably use some lightweight materials in order to save its weight. This lightweight truck will also show larger dimensions than the current model which will mean more space for you and your passengers as well as for your cargo. Its bed will be able to handle various weights and types of cargo. Toyota will also improve its suspension system that will only add up to its already excellent off-road abilities and handling. This truck will be able to go through various types of challenging terrains and conditions and it will also increase its towing capacity up to 3 tones. The new Hilux will acquire more angular and muscular design, especially in the front fascia where you cannot but notice its redesigned grille and bumper. The truck should also get a new set of halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights that will only improve its visibility.
To be honest, none of us should expect any luxurious features inside a truck that has primarily been work-oriented. However, the carmaker will still manage to improve the space and overall comfort inside the 2019 Toyota Hilux. Its cabin should offer more space due to the truck’s larger dimensions as well as more comfortable and supportive seats so that you will be able to enjoy your ride even through rough and bumpy terrains. Higher trim levels should probably use fine leather and other high-quality materials inside. The driver can also hope to find a 6.1-inch touch screen display with the infotainment systems as well as an information display in the center console. The new Hilux will provide some of the latest technology and connectivity options, but also numerous safety systems and driver assist features.
One thing is for sure – the 2019 Toyota Hilux will be more eco-friendly since it will offer a more efficient engine with lower CO2 emission. However, it seems that there will be more than one possible option under the hood of this truck. The new Hilux might keep its 2.8-liter engine with 174 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque, but most of those speculations lately say that the truck might employ a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel engine, mated to a five-speed automatic transmission, that delivers 169 horsepower, 253 pound-feet of torque.
