2021 Toyota HiLux Rugged X review

Rugged by name and rugged by nature. The 2021 Toyota HiLux Rugged X asks for a lot more than a regular SR5. Is it worth it?

2021 Toyota HiLux Rogue review

Toyota's town ute shapes up markedly with its midlife update.

2020 Toyota HiLux SR 4x2 Hi-Rider review

Toyota's HiLux has benefitted from some much-needed updates bringing it in line with the rest of the segment. For buyers who don't need 4WD, the SR Hi-Rider in RWD might be just the ticket for the job site.

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.

2020 Toyota HiLux recalled due to compliance label

Toyota Australia has issued a recall of 15 examples of its 2020 Hilux (MY20). The recall notice, which is expected to be lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the legally-required compliance label was incorrectly affixed to the vehicles. Affected HiLux utes were manufactured between 1 June 2020 and 4 August 2020...

Toyota Hilux thefts more than double, Holden Commodore thefts halve, as stolen exports increase

Thefts of Toyota HiLux utes have more than doubled over the past 10 years – and almost one-in-three stolen are never recovered, suspected of being broken into parts which are then sold illegally in Australia and overseas. More than 2000 Toyota HiLuxes have been reported as stolen in the past financial year alone, estimated to have a combined insurance value of $31...

Toyota HiLux DPF: What has been done to fix it

Toyota Australia has fixed thousands of faulty or clogged diesel particulate filters across HiLux, Prado and Fortuner models made since 2015 – and now it claims the newly updated versions of those cars have a system redesigned in such a way as to avoid past problems...

Check out that 4x4! Back to The Future Toyota Hilux tribute for sale. UPDATE: Sold and coming to Aus!

"Check out that 4x4! That is hot!" Marty McFly from Back To The Future sure could pick a cool Hilux, and now you can too! UPDATE, November 7: You're out of time folks! The Hilux sold for US$36,250 (A$49,945) - which, we have to say, is pretty heavy. BUT, in a really cool and fun twist, the Marty McFly Hilux is coming to Australia!

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...
