The changing face of Toyota HiLux through the ages

The origins of Australia’s favourite workhorse date back to 1968 when the original N10 generation Toyota HiLux made its debut in Japan, replacing the Toyopet Light Stout. Since those early days, the HiLux has gone through eight generations. It’s conquered the world too, sold in 180 countries...

The 2020 Toyota HiLux, Australia’s annual best-selling car for four years straight, is about as ubiquitous as it gets on our roads.

Revideo: 2020 Ford Ranger vs Toyota HiLux comparison review

Like their sales figures, it is honestly very hard to separate these utes. Each time one pulls ahead, the other counters in a different way. More tech, Ford. Better ergonomics, Toyota. Rear passenger comfort, Ford. Longer load area, Toyota. Cheaper to buy, HiLux. Cheaper to run, Ranger. You can play tit-for-tat in every possible way, but in our mind it comes down to one key outcome...

Video: 2020 Ford Ranger v Toyota Hilux... Tug o' War!

There are any number of ways to decide which of these two utes should be king of the Australian market, and our latest full comparison is certainly one of them. THIS, however, is another slightly less scientific but loads-more-fun way to decide.

Australia's best-selling utes comparison: 2020 Toyota HiLux v Ford Ranger

Coke v Pepsi. Carlton v Collingwood. Balboa v Drago. Famous rivalries all, but none of them are a pinch on the fierce battle between Australia’s two favourite utes. The 4x4 versions of the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger constantly duke it out for the honours of the top-selling car in the country...

Used vehicle prices in Australia are 25 per cent higher than they were during the same period last year, marking an all-time record rate of growth for the sector.

While Toyota’s updated 2021 HiLux, LandCruiser Prado and Fortuner still carry over the same 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine as the respective outgoing models, there have been a lot of mechanical changes for the new models.

2020 Toyota HiLux SR5 Hi-rider review: The Thailand driver

The Toyota HiLux is becoming ever more popular in Australia, with a long list of variants and gaining critical acclaim in Australia and other countries. The introduction of the new model will only cement its reputation in the highly competitive pick-up segment of the market...

2019 Toyota HiLux SR (4x4) review

I bought my 2019 Hilux SR in January 2020 due to its excellent resale and solid Toyota build quality. I prefer the front look of the SR compared to the SR5, especially with the bull bar. Everything is functional and does the job, and the interior is really comfortable when travelling for extended periods of time...

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...
