The launch of the Toyota Hilux has been delayed as the manufacturer was earlier set to reveal the prices in March. Toyota revealed the lifestyle pickup and commenced its pre-launch bookings in January. However, the manufacturer temporarily halted its bookings in February and is yet to restart it.

In response to our query regarding this, Toyota responded, “We are doing our best to ensure the bookings reopen at the soonest possible opportunity to minimize any impact. Beyond this, we are unable to share any specifics.”

The Toyota Hilux is a lifestyle pickup that shares its underpinnings with the Fortuner and Innova Crysta. It will be 30 percent localized and assembled at Toyota’s facility in Karnataka. There will be two variants on offer: STD (standard) and High. 

The Hilux is powered by the Fortuner’s 204PS 2.8-litre diesel engine, paired with 6-speed manual and torque converter automatic transmissions. It gets 4WD as standard with a low-range transfer case, electronic differential lock, automatic limited-slip differential, and a water wading depth of 700mm.
