Toyota HiLux

The Toyota Hilux has developed a reputation for being the ‘unbreakable’ dual-cab ute in some of the world’s harshest and most remote environments, so it is no surprise it's one of Australia’s most popular vehicles.

The Toyota Hilux, sometimes written as Hi-Lux or HiLux, was first introduced in Japan in 1968, but didn't become popular in Australia until the third generation Hilux from 1978 onwards.

Most models of Hilux are priced between $40,000 and $60,000, depending on engine and gearbox choices, combinations of body styles, and specific features.

The Hilux generally focuses on essential workhorse qualities such as off-road capability, load and tow ratings, and remote-area service.

Though rivals such as the Volkswagen Amarok or Isuzu D-Max offer other selling points like more power or value, the Toyota Hilux's reputation for reliability keeps it competitive with the Ford Ranger with which it battles for the position as Australia's best-selling ute.

How many kilometres will a Toyota Hilux last?

While it's hard to know how long a new car will last, Toyota Hiluxes have historically been able to handle high mileage as long as they're properly maintained. Hiluxes generally don't have abnormal longevity issues when it comes to parts wearing out, while some cases have seen Hiluxes last several hundred thousand or even more than one million kilometres with normal servicing.

What are some Toyota Hilux problems?

Aside from common complaints about the Toyota Hilux such as its stiff ride and comparatively meek power outputs compared to rivals, 2.8-litre diesel versions of the Hilux in 2019 were affected by a diesel particulate filter problem, affecting fuel consumption. Toyota says this problem has since been fixed with a 2020/21 model year update.

How much can a Toyota Hilux tow?

The 2021 Toyota Hilux has been uprated so that all 4x4 models, both manual or automatic, have a towing capacity of 3500kg.

Where is the Toyota Hilux built?

The Toyota Hilux is built in Thailand at two different manufacturing plants: the Samrong plant and the much newer Ban Pho plant. The latter plant produces only the Hilux, at a normal operating capacity of 100,000 units per year.

How many ISOFIX points does a Toyota Hilux have?

Dual-cab versions of the Toyota Hilux have lower ISOFIX points for each outer rear seat, with top tethering at each side, though the middle seat does not feature a top tether.
