Looks new Hilux far less aggressive than Tacoma, – a different target audience. Front, for example, reminds pickup sedan Corolla. The body of the machine must be completely new – a tough and lightweight, and steel frame, which carries powertrain and suspension (front and rear two-lever rigid axle on leaf springs) – upgraded.
Most likely, the four-cylinder petrol engines and turbodiesels will be, if not completely new, it is deeply updated (to us only imported cars with engines on heavy fuel). The same goes for transmissions.

The new Toyota Hilux will be three body styles – from single, double and Bastard cab and rear or all-wheel drive. And the new model will be better equipped – to meet strong rivals such as Nissan Navara NP300, Mitsubishi L200 and Ford Ranger.
Toyota Hilux eighth generation will debut soon. Sales probably will begin the formal premiere at the Auto Show.
