    My Hilux comes with a 2.4 diesel engine. Acquired it for 1.144M. It's full body and big tires are enough to stand out between vehicles with the same price range. Read More

Foton Thunder

4x4 drivetrain works efficiently

Dual cab variant is very plush

Powerful engine with good performance

Toyota Hilux

Toyota has always been known for its legendary reliability, and the Hilux has been the pioneer on that front. The Toyota Hilux has proven its unshakable prowess time and again, and the version which is available in the Philippines right now features the same mettle. The Hilux offers great levels of build quality and fit and finish, despite being a utilitarian vehicle, which is quite impressive.

Being a pickup truck, the Toyota Hilux has a very impressive cabin layout, which is rich in comfort and convenience features as well. The Toyota Hilux features quite a good number of new age features like a touch screen infotainment system, steering mounted audio and Bluetooth controls, automatic climate control and so on. This gives the Toyota Hilux a feel-good factor which people seldom expect from a pickup truck

Pickup trucks need to have a torquey engine to make it suitable for driveability in rough conditions, and the Toyota Hilux’s powertrain pass this test with flying colours. The Hilux’s 2.8-litre four-cylinder diesel engine pumps out 174PS of power output and 450Nm of torque rating, which is powerful enough for a vehicle of this size.

Foton Thunder

Slightly expensive than some competitors

 

Toyota Hilux

The version of Toyota Hilux which is available in the Philippines right now is basically the previous generation one, which lacks the road presence in terms of modernity. It misses out on a number of eye-catching features which are fastly making their presence in the similarly priced pickup trucks from other manufacturers.

The Toyota Hilux’s engine performs excellently when it comes to outright power delivery, but the engine feels crude when it comes to refinement and fuel efficiency. The Hilux scores a bit low in both these aspects.
