I love my Toyota HiLux which has never let me down.

Only a 4 wheel driver on weekends and minor bush bashing eg Beach, bush tracks and camping.

Unfortunately the kids have outgrown the extra cab and we are up for a new dual cab. Won’t be a Hilux though (sob) as Toyota need to look at what others now have to offer on models (including some of the basic no frill units). ESC, ABS, air bags (not just front bags though), 6 speed boxes and more for comparable pricing.

Queried Toyota on a possible new model with some extra “fruit” and the reply was – “we make commercial vehicles”.

Last time I looked most SR5s weren’t being used as a tradies ute – but an all rounder with family in mind. Sorry Toyota – love your work but you are just outdated.
