Toyota took the wraps off a revised top-of-the range version of its legendary Hilux pick-up at the Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC, Birmingham, on 30 April.
The revised Hilux Invincible X sports design enhancements, with a dark grey and black theme. Available in the UK exclusively in Double Cab form, it features a grey smoked chrome finish for the upper front grille surround, fog lamp bezels, door and tailgate handles, door mirror casings, front and rear under-runs and rear bumper corners. The specification includes 18-inch alloy wheels, too, with a two-tone machined finish.
The cabin has an all-black look, with the sense of quality reinforced by chrome instrument panel detailing and piano black inserts on the dashboard, door trims, steering wheel and gear shift.
The driver’s instrument binnacle has a striking dial design with a white background and a central TFT multi-information display which presents a Hilux animation when the ignition is switched on. Even the key is specific to the model, featuring a silhouette sketch of the pick-up’s frontal design.
For 2019, all Hilux models will be available with an enhanced Toyota Safety Sense package of active safety technologies. This includes Pre-Collision System with day and night-time pedestrian detection and daytime cyclist detection, high speed range Adaptive Cruise Control, Road Sign Assist and Lane Departure Alert with brake-induced steering assist (as Hilux uses a hydraulic power steering system, line corrections are applied by separate braking of the front/rear and right/left wheels).
The 2019 Hilux model range will be on sale from August this year. UK pricing and further details will be launched nearer the on-sale date.
