UPDATE: The new HiLux has now been revealed. Read here.
Toyota’s all-new HiLux pickup, spied testing in light camouflage over the past year, has been given an early unveiling this week.
Caught by a sneaky worker or factory infiltrator, these new shots offer a first detailed look at the new model’s front and rear styling.
Large headlights dominate the front, flanking a wide trapezoidal grille and sweeping up into the front quarter panels.
The tightly-cropped shot of the new model’s rear-end points to a conventional tub, with the standard vertical tail-light design to either side of the tailgate.
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.
