2014 Toyota HiLux: Price, Features And Models For Updated Pickup Range

TMR Team | Nov 1, 2013

2014 TOYOTA HILUX

Toyota has added a handful of new features to its HiLux pickup range for 2014, building on the recent upgrade to a 5-Star ANCAP safety rating for 4x4 models.

These latest updates apply to Extra and Single Cab models, including a new five-speed auto for diesel variants, a new display system, and new colours and materials in the cabin.

Prices have increased across nearly all Extra and Single Cab models for 2014, with increases ranging from $250 to $1250. The line-up has also been streamlined for 2014, focusing on diesel models and offering fewer petrol V6 options.

There is now 11 models for these two body styles: four 4x2 Single Cabs (three Workmate, one SR) and two 4x2 Extra Cabs (SR), while 4x4 models include two Single Cabs (SR) and three Extra Cabs (two SR, one SR5).

Along with the new five-speed auto for diesel models, both body styles now feature a 6.1 inch colour display with aux/iPod/USB/Bluetooth connectivity and steering-mounted audio controls.

At the top of the range, SR5 models pick up a reversing camera and upgraded satellite navigation with SUNA traffic updates, while the SR5 4x4 Extra Cab upgrades from 15- to 17-inch alloy wheels.

For SR5 and SR models, the steering-mounted controls also operate the multi-information display (MID) in the instrument cluster, along with telephone and voice recognition.

The MID, new to SR models, shows current and average fuel economy, average vehicle speed, cruising range, outside temperature, a compass and time.

Toyota says the most popular engine in the HiLux range is the 126kW/343Nm diesel. But, depending on the model, there is also the choice of a petrol 116kW/240Nm 2.7-litre four-cylinder or a petrol 175kW/376Nm V6.

The 4x4 HiLux's recent update to a 5-Star safety rating is thanks to the addition of stability and traction control, brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution on Extra and Single Cab variants.

As for the Double Cab models, Toyota Australia's Stephen Coughlan confirmed with TMR today that a similar update to those models is due in January. Keep an eye out for that.

    As this upgrade is basically cosmetic, I'm surprised that Toyota didn't add a cistern to the badge.biggrin

                I would expect the ranger to have a few recalls as its an all new vehicle. Where as the Toyota would have to spend $$$ on R&D to have something "new".

                Anyone who thinks a car will never have recalls is a fool. Mistakes are mad, teething issues etc. Shit happens. What matters is how the compony deals with the issue!

      The Ford has had its issue, like after the first service not being able to get oil pressure, which requires a new engine, We have two with rear main oil leaks and they are less than 2,000km old.
      We have 11 Hilux's in our fleet which have had had no issues at all, Thats the reason we choose the toyota Hilux, But we did try the Ford Ranger which has better styling but not better build quality.

      Because the Ranger is a Ford and is worth nothing the moment you drive it out of the dealership !

      The is one simple answer to your question.
      Toyota Hilux have proven themselves on mine sites through out Australia for the last 30 years plus.
      They have proven there 4x4 capabilities over and over, just like the Landcruiser models.
      Ford rangers might be nice cars to drive on the road too how ever if you were to put them on a mine site for a lifetime I'm sure they would fall to bits WELL before the proven mighty old Hilux.
      The Hilux has PROVEN it's self to the Australian 4wd people and is the reason why people buy the Hilux over the Ranger.
      The re sale value on the mighty old Hilux will always be there above and beyond all the new coming 4x4's because they have proven there reliability over the last 30 years.
      Maybe in another 20 years the ford ranger might be the 4x4 to buy ??
      For now I know where I would rather put my hard earn't $$$$
      And that is a 4x4 that is proven its self year after year!!

    How many more models can Toyota throw that horrible after market looking double din head unit it. It is just fugly when they don't make some effort to integrate it into the dash properly, as opposed to just throw it in. And as a whole it's turned a plain and horrible interior into a chromed plain and horrible interior. They reason why I was turned off the sr5

      If you want all the features u all ways have to order the top of the range......

      And having to wait 3 months, how does that have anything to do with faith?????? Maybe they are in high demand, with low production???

      All cars have faults, Navaras, not the best engine but that depends on who u talk to too. And that goes for most cars!

    I can tell you all about the current shape Hilux, Bought 2006 GGN15 V6 as a demo with 44500 kms on the clock, converted to LPG vapour at 66500 km, currently 767439 kms on the clock, yes that's three quarters of a million!
    Faults, repairs and issues, two radiators, two engines (first lasted 425,000 km) one rear wheel bearing, one front tail shaft section due to destroyed uni joint needles, one alternator 722,000 km, one aircon compressor at 385,000 km. rear shocks replaced with pedders at 235,000 km, front struts replaced with pedders at 585,000 km.
    Tyres every 125,000 km (only use Hankook RA 08), front brakes (pads) every 100,000 km and rotors every 200,000 km, rear brakes once at 525,000 km, centre muffler at 675,000 km, three cats between 235,000 and 715,000 km, steering wheel squib for airbag failed at 145,000 km and still faulty,
    Numerous windscreens, twice hit Kangaroos, one fence scrape.

    Am I happy with it hell yeah, indestructible no, reliable to a fault yeah, never let me down anywhere I travelled ever, it has been all the way up the east coast to cairns and back to adelaide and other east coast capitals so many times I lost count, and the kicker is half this distance was towing a caravan weighing in at 2200 kg. Do I still love it ? For sure I prefer it over my Navara and my Falcon wagon because it still is a buzz to drive and now handles like a sportscar. I'll be running it up to a million before i sell it.
    PS have ordered a new GGN15 V6 SR ExCab and get that in two weeks to supplement my work, so excited feel like a kid again.

    Ok ok another Toyota story another opportunity for the small group of knockers to emerge. I'm a little partial as I have sold them for more than ten years and unlike some of the stories my colleagues tell of the days when they worked for a variety of different makers I could prove only a handful of cases where customers had a beef after they had bought. And even then it wasn't always down to Toyota not doing it right but who wants to stick their hand up and say "yeah it's probably got more to do with my own ineptitude". Sure MORE POWER and MORE CAPACITY sounds good but the reality is a 3 ton towing capacity is not something most people use. Those who do find out the hard way as they have already done their dough. Toyota will bring out a more powerful engine and better towing capacity when they have done the years of testing needed to make sure it works 99.9% of the time. Meanwhile the Hilux continues to lead the ute market year after year with an apparently inferior product that costs more!

    All new vehicles are nice these days, however none of these ute's stand any chance against the VW Amarok. Looks better, drives better, better engineering, better design, just better everything.

  • Scott says,

    When will people on here realise that the ute market is not just for the mining industry, I couldn't care less how a ute handled in the mines. As a tradie looking to replace my trusty XR6 Turbo with another ute, I'm spoiled for choice.

    The Ranger is easily the best ute on the market, but Ford arrogance at dealing with warranty is a huge turn off, the Mazda is the Rangers ugly cousin, The Nissan ST 550 is too dear and a mixed bag quality wise. That leaves the Hilux. The Hilux is overpriced in SR5 variant and is way old fashioned compared with everything else on the market. But that's to be expected with an older design, but the trump card is it's the only 2wd that's not built on a 4wd chassis and since I work I shopping centres and building with 2.1 mt clearances it's the only clear choice once you start throwing on canopies and roof racks, and it's still the only one on the market with a ballsy v6.

    If only they made a 2wd diesel Auto they'd have cornered the market for those of us who can't have the high ground clearance models.
