The next generation of the Toyota Hilux was recently spotted on the roads. However, despite the fact that it was completely covered and camouflaged, some changes could be spotted. First and fore-most, and probably obviously, the new and redesigned 2016 Toyota Hilux Diesel is expected to be considerably larger, longer and wider than the present version.
And while the exterior body work was camouflaged, it wasn’t good enough as some of the tweaks done were visible. It turns out that the 2016 Toyota Hilux Diesel will have an aggressive look and shape. However, the shape is irrelevant when you consider the fact that this was a test drive for the all new engine that will come packed under its hood. Well, what exactly will this new Toyota come packing under its hood?
Well, people have the answer to that, or at least they think they do. Given that the 2016 Toyota Hilux Diesel will be one of the best pickup trucks in the world it only means that the best engine will be installed. The best next generation engine Hilux will debut with is the V8 5.0 Turbo Diesel Cummins. The very same one that is under the hood of the Tundra 2016. This engine has the ability and capability to deliver over 300 hp and over 500 lb-ft for the torque, a perfect fit for the larger 2016 Toyota Hilux Diesel. It ill jot be the only engine to choose from but if the rumors are anything to go by, then this will be a monster truck of sorts. The towing capabilities of the truck will very much more powerful and the performance much more improved than its predecessor.
Exterior and Interior
As earlier pointed out the exterior of this truck will change a great deal. The longer wheel base and the overhang rear are some suggestions that the ride will be on a new different platform. So despite the fact that it will be larger than its predecessor, it will be much lighter. This is however an assumption. What we can however be sure of is the new front face it will be wearing. The grille, bulging out underneath the camouflage will have much more bars. The headlight as well as the front bumper will be restyled. In addition, it will have broader shoulders, which will give it a more muscular appearance. And not only will it have a gorgeous outlook, it will have an interior to match too. It will be much more spacious with seats designed to increase the comfort of the passengers.
