The entry-point to the three new models in the Toyota HiLux 2018 model range is the attractively priced and ready-to-rumble 2018 Toyota HiLux Rugged.
Standard kit includes a six-speaker sound system, a touchscreen media system with radio, CD player and MP3 capability, plus sat nav, USB and Bluetooth. DAB digital radio is fitted, but you can forget smartphone mirroring technology.
Over and above the SR grade HiLux dual cab that this model is based on, the Rugged adopts a heavy-duty hooped steel bullbar along with a snorkel, 17-inch alloy wheels with all-terrain tyres, a heavy-duty steel rear bar with integrated step, a towbar, towball and tongue (and seven-pin flat trailer wiring harness), rear recovery points, side rock rails, black body side mouldings, a black sports bar with multiple tie-down points, a tub liner with tailgate protection, a black tailgate handle and dark grey badges and Rugged decals.
The Rugged model is available with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. It runs a 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel with 130kW of power and 450Nm in the automatic transmission, while the manual is rated at 130kW/420Nm.
