Toyota to Launch Hilux Pickup in India at Rs 20 lakh?
Toyota to Launch Innova Crysta Based 2022 Hilux Pickup in India at Rs 20 Lakh?
The pickup truck segment in India till now has only been confined to the Isuzu V-Cross D-Max and it is the only lifestyle pickup in India. However the success and decent sales figures of this truck has meant that others are now eyeing the pickup truck space. One such is Toyota. Its pickup trucks are very popular in some other markets notably the Hilux and that is what is being planned for India. The Hilux shares a lot with the Fortuner and also the Innova Crysta having the same platform.
The Hilux is a massive pickup which measures at 5,325mm in length and the double cab version measures 1900mm in width. It is big and for India we will get the double cab version only. It also looks huge and will appeal to many looking to make a statement plus it shares some design features with the Fortuner. In terms of road presence, it might over shadow the Fortuner itself.
Toyota Hilux Specification - Dimensions
Like we said earlier it would be a lifestyle pickup hence would have comfort and luxury features like powered driver’s seat, leather upholstery, automatic LED headlamps, TFT instrument cluster, the bigger touch screen shared with the facelift Fortuner and more. The engine options would be shared with the Innova and Fortuner. The base variant will get the 2.4 Litre 4-cylinder diesel engine from Innova while the top variants will have the more powerful 2.8 Litre 4-cylinder diesel engine from Fortuner. In terms of off-road performance, the Hilux would be even better than the Fortuner and would appeal to off-road enthusiasts. We expect the Hilux to be priced at a premium or same with the Innova and the V-Cross. Hence, expect it to be priced at around the Rs 20 lakh with the top variants priced at just under 30 lakhs. The launch might happen towards the end of the year or starting of next year.
