UPDATE: The new HiLux has now been revealed. Read here.

Toyota’s next-generation HiLux has been spied testing in Southern Europe this week, offering the clearest look yet at its new styling.

As expected, the all-new 2016 HiLux will debut with a more muscular look than the nearly 10 year-old seventh-generation model.

Those meatier proportions will boost the new model’s appeal against other muscly rivals, including the Ford Ranger, Volkswagen’s Amarok and the recently revealed 2015 Nissan Navara.

Like the all-new Kluger SUV, the new HiLux will wear a broad new grille and long headlights, set high above a tall front bumper and a deep lower grille design.

Larger and more squared-off guards dominate the new pickup’s profile and, while camouflage obscures this prototype’s finer details, we may also see an integrated flare in place of the bolt-on items on the current range’s top models.

The tub of this model also appears deeper and wider than the current HiLux, which may better allow tubbed models to accommodate pallets.

In its current form, the HiLux is powered by a pair of 2.7 four-cylinder and 4.0 litre V6 petrol engines, along with a 3.0 litre turbodiesel.

Powertrains for the new range are still to be confirmed, but we can likely expect an updated version of at least the diesel engine to carry over.

A late 2015 debut for the new HiLux is expected, meaning that the current model will reach its 10th birthday before it’s replaced.

Expect an Australian launch to occur in early 2016.
