2019 Toyota HiLux Workmate 4x4 review

Now boosted with advanced safety tech, is Toyota's HiLux the pick of single-cab work utes?

2019 Toyota HiLux SR review

The Toyota HiLux is Australia's top-selling new vehicle, which is pretty remarkable. This ubiquitous ute is as solid as ever, and might actually be at its all-round best in SR guise as tested here.

2019 Toyota HiLux Rugged X off-road review

To see if it can walk the walk that its looks talk up, we head off-road in Toyota's tricked-up HiLux Rugged X.

To Mod or Not To Mod? That is the question

There isn’t another country on the planet as obsessed with 4WDing as Australia. We’re buying more 4WDs, in the shape of both utes and SUVs, than small cars these days and that trend doesn’t look like slowing down. Sure, a good chunk of those SUVs (and even some of those 'lifestyle' utes, even the ones with all-wheel drive capability, are unlikely to ever see a patch of dirt let alone hardcore off-road tracks...

Mod or Not: Toyota Hilux Rugged X v Modded Hilux SR5

To modify or to not modify? That is the burning, eternal question for many enthusiasts. To explore the functional pros and cons of both paths, we've lined up a new Toyota HiLux Rugged X against a nicely tweaked SR5. Let's see how they both go!

2018 Toyota HiLux Rugged, Rugged X and Rogue review

Paul Maric has just spent the best part of two days testing Toyota's all-new models aimed at the buyer wanting more features and more off-road ability from their dual-cab ute. The Toyota HiLux Rogue, HiLux Rugged and HiLux Rugged X kicked off as an idea among Toyota Australia's executive team in 2015, just before the current-generation HiLux was released...

2018 Dual-cab ute mega test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Our team have tested eight key contenders (LDV wouldn't give us a T60, and the X-Class hadn't launched in time for this test), to see how they all stack up...

2019 Toyota HiLux SR5 v Volkswagen Amarok Core V6 comparison: Off-road

So, you've got around $55,000 to spend on your next ute. You're tossing up between a trusty four-cylinder diesel Toyota HiLux SR5 and venturing out for what seems like the bargain of the century, a turbocharged V6 Volkswagen Amarok Core diesel. Bargain of the century is a relative term, simply because most other manufacturers in this segment churn out four-cylinder diesel jobs like they're going out of fashion...

Ford Ranger Raptor v Toyota HiLux Rugged X v Volkswagen Amarok Ultimate TDI580 comparison

Australians have always been fond of turning utes into status symbols – once of the two-doored, V8 variety. The market is quite different today, but the fundamental desires for head-turning load-luggers remain. Enter the trio of desirable workhorses you see here: the Ford Ranger Raptor, Toyota HiLux Rugged X and Volkswagen Amarok Ultimate TDI580...

Toyota says rural buyers keen on HiLux, LandCruiser hybrids

Research done by Toyota Australia is showing its army of regional and rural owners are “very enthusiastic” for hybrid versions of the next HiLux and LandCruiser — provided they’re capable enough to do the work required. The company, which aims for about 20 per cent of its sales in Australia to be hybrid cars next year (equal to about 40,000 cars), has already said we can expect ‘electrified’ derivatives offered across its total range by around 2025...

Best ute deals: sharp discounts emerge as sales continue to slide

The Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger remain our top two selling vehicles outright, however they are also facing an uphill battle as with the rest of the ute market as demand continues to slide.

2017 Toyota HiLux Workmate (4x4) review

My Toyota HiLux WorkMate 4x4 dual-cab is best described as unexceptionally capable. Now, I must qualify this review firstly, I didn't buy this car – it was chosen by the bean counters on price, reputation and perceived reliability. Of the previous fleet vehicles used by the business, the HiLuxes had the least issues, if any, compared to previous Mazdas, Fords and Nissans...

2007 Toyota HiLux SR review

I bought the car off my dad, as I needed a new car and I work as a tradie. I wasn't the biggest fan of it at first, mainly the looks and how it drove, but over time I added my own touches to the exterior. The car is rather basic in terms of technology for its year, however it has all the main things you want in a car: AUX and Bluetooth, a semi-decent stereo system, ABS, and two airbags...

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...
