2012 Toyota HiLux On Sale In Australia From September

Mike Stevens | Jul 13, 2011


Toyota's updated 2012 HiLux will hit showrooms in September, bringing a number of styling tweaks and safety upgrades across the range.

On the design front, the top-selling pickup gets a restyled front-end with new headlights, a new grille, updated quarter panels and a new bonnet scoop.

There are also revised bumpers at both ends, along with clear tail-light lenses and a new sports bar. Changes in the cabin are centred around new seat and door trims.

New Workmate variants have been added to the existing entry-level range, and all 4x4 models are now rated with a braked towing capacity of 2.5 tonnes - up from 2.25.

Anti-lock braking has also been adopted across the range as a standard feature, where it was formerly available as an option pack for all but the top-shelf SR5.

Mechanical and engine details are expected to remain unchanged for the 2012 model year.

More specification details and pricing will be released closer to the 2012 HiLux's September launch.

    Yeah well done Toyota??? WOW you have really changed (not) and still you have one of the lowest towing capacity out of the range. And the same old engine. Look at what's out there V6 diesel Navara, soon to be a 5cyl Ranger with 3350kg towing. Just like the landcruiser, don’t spend any coin on R&D but still ask a premium price. Sorry Toyota your not what you use to be.

    Having just got one to replace my 2007 model I must point out there are more differences than you think. Larger fuel tank, better lights, traction control, front light washers. Two batteries. Better fuel economy. Fold in mirrors, heated mirrors, larger air intake, I admit it is hard to make great better but they have.
