Toyota’s all-new 2016 HiLux, revealed to the world at simultaneous Sydney and Bangkok events this week, will hit Australia in October.
Full local details of the new line-up are still to be confirmed, but Toyota has so far revealed a significant number of the global HiLux range’s mechanical and technology specifications.
And, while guests at the Sydney event were shown only the high-spec SR5 model in dual-cab form - with the windows blacked out and doors locked - Toyota’s international unveling has revealed a few more key details.
Among them is a first look at the new HiLux in its single-cab ‘Workmate’ form and the extended extra-cab design.
Those variants, along with cab-chassis versions, will form part of a 31-strong HiLux range - up from 23 in the current range - incorporating 4x2 and 4x4 configurations, and three equipment grades.
More detailed specifications are still to come, although it is expected that the local range will offer two four-cylinder diesel engines, along with a pair of four- and six-cylinder petrol engines.
