2017 Toyota HiLux TRD review

The 2017 Toyota HiLux TRD ute adds some styling extras to the range-topping SR5 dual-cab diesel 4x4 ute. Is it worth the extra cash?

Playtime in the Toyota HiLux Tonka concept and 2017 Toyota HiLux TRD

You're never too old to play with toys, we say - and Toyota has given us all a nice reminder with the release of the full-size HiLux Tonka concept. Billed as the "dream toy for adults", this collaborative 'Toyonka' (Tonkota?) made its global debut in Sydney recently...

2016 Toyota HiLux SR5 Double Cab review

Despite remaining atop the sales charts, the HiLux is no longer the best dual cab 4WD in Australia. It's still as tough as it has always been though, not that many owners of brand new SR5s would ever know.

2016 Toyota Hilux WorkMate 4x4 review

Toyota has gone back to basics with the entry-level HiLux Workmate. James has a look to see if there is still plenty of ute behind the black bumper and steel wheels.

2017 Toyota Hilux TRD review

Read the full article here. Today we’re going to take a look at something truly exciting that’s been developed by Toyota’s go-fast team, TRD. It’s the 2017 Toyota HiLux TRD. Wait, what? Toyota Racing Development hasn’t really worked this new model over to within an inch of its life, and it really hasn’t done anything to make it a much sportier than the standard vehicle...

Playtime in the Toyota HiLux Tonka concept and 2017 Toyota HiLux TRD

Read the full article here. We’re in the exhibition hall at Australian Technology Park in Sydney for the global unveiling of the Toyota HiLux Tonka concept, which is based on the top-spec double-cab SR5, A little playground with dirt, hills and giant building bricks has been set up inside the massive building to show off its capabilities...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Read the full review here  There are work utes – you know, the single-cab budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls...

2017 Toyota Hilux SR5 review

We know the 2016 Toyota HiLux SR5 isn’t the best dual cab in the class, because we’ve tested it against the competition not long after its initial release. We know the styling of the all-new model polarises people – even strident Toyota fans most of whom reckon the front end especially has been beaten with the ugly stick...

Ford Ranger Wildtrak v Toyota HiLux TRD comparison

This really is the battle of the big guns – the most expensive versions of the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux, fighting for the title of the sportiest lifestyle ute. They’re both more popular than any SUV on the market, with buyers choosing these high-riding, five-seat vehicles to get around even if they don’t use the tray for its intended purpose...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

There are work utes – you know, the single-cab, budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls. In fact, we drove those types of utes in our eight ute mega test a while ago, and we've even done an extra-cab lifestyle ute comparison, too...

Holden Colorado LTZ v Toyota HiLux SR5 comparison

I’m sure that deep inside a fortune cookie somewhere is a pseudo-cryptic message that suggests being first doesn’t immediately equate with being the best. Take this pair of pick-ups for example. For 2016, the Toyota HiLux was not only the highest selling ute in Australia, it was the highest selling passenger vehicle. Period...

2018 Toyota HiLux pricing and specs

Pricing and specifications for the updated 2018 Toyota HiLux range have been detailed ahead of an October 6 on-sale date, brining a revised model line-up including new variants, small price increases, and the axing of the slow-selling 4.0-litre V6 engine.

Toyota HiLux upgrades and improvements coming: local arm 'not resting on laurels'

Despite the Toyota HiLux dominating local sales figures for the last sixth months consecutively – and taking out top honours in 2016 – the Japanese car maker's local division says it's taking the market and the segment seriously, with more upgrades and improvements to the hard-working model well and truly in the pipeline...

Ranger sales overtake Corolla, HiLux stays king

The two most popular vehicles in Australia this year so far are light commercials, with the Toyota HiLux staying atop the charts and the rampaging Ford Ranger overtaking the Corolla. Reflecting Australians' almost insatiable taste for utes, four of the ten most popular sellers over the first third of 2017 are utes, with the Mitsubishi Triton in seventh (ahead of the Holden Commodore) and the Holden Colorado in tenth...

2016 Toyota HiLux SR (4x4) Review

With the new crop of dual cab utes around, it is hard to decide which ones suits you better. Do I go for engine power, features, size or name? Mid-2016 I picked up my 2016 HiLux in hope that it would satisfy everything that I need. I loved the standard rear-view camera and the cool box that comes standard with the SR as well as the 7-inch touch screen...

2006 Toyota HiLux SR5 Review

The high-spec SR5 looks staunch with big roll bars and chrome trim. Mine's in silver. It's a big truck, and handles like a truck! I love the simplicity of my 2006 model. There are no chimes or annoying bells, and the quiet engine is very easy to work on and maintain. I don't like the plastic headlights, but I'll upgrade these to LED soon...

2002 Toyota HiLux SR5 (4x4) Review

When I see advertisements of the latest dual-cab utes (that's 'trucks' to Holden and Ford ad gurus), I take it as fact that if you don't tow a jetski/skidsteer/bull to market at least every weekend, you might as well hand in your man license and let your mum tow 3.5 ton on your behalf...

2013 Toyota HiLux Workmate Review

2013 Toyota Hilux TGN16R 2.7 Litre five speed manual transmission single cab chassis August 18, 2016. A three year old vehicle.... The Bad Bits, I generously rate the (expletive deleted) manual gearbox with a score of 2/10 for overall performance. It is often hard / very hard to downshift, it is sticky and is very easy to grate, grind or crunch gears on normal upshifts or downshifts...
