The new 2024 Toyota Hilux will look closer to the Land Cruiser SUV, per reports. The new truck will sit on the TNGA-F platform, which means Hilux will arrive as a body-on-frame model. The Tundra truck will ride on the same architecture. As for the Hilux, a new design is on the way, although we only have a couple of renderings, so the real design remains a mystery.
The same thing is with the interior, but we expect a couple of important updates as well. Most likely, the engine lineup won’t change, which is still far from official. Anyway, the new Hilux will hit the dealerships at some point in 2023, most likely in the third quarter of the year.
Toyota Hilux Redesign
We now have a fantastic glimpse at the potential upgrades the new 2024 Toyota Hilux will get thanks to a new rendering. First off, the new truck is built using the cutting-edge TNGA-F body-on-frame design. The Land Cruiser and Tundra models will have a lot in common, including this platform.
Overall, the style is intriguing, and the Toyota Hilux resembles the Land Cruiser almost exactly. It has the same beautiful grille, eye-catching LED headlamps, and fashionable wheels on the front end. The taillights are new, and we like the rear section in general.
The cabin of the 2024 Toyota Hilux will undergo some important updates as well. Definitely, Toyota will bring the level of luxury to a higher level by introducing more upright materials. The design will slightly change as well, but the interior layout will remain intact. The Hilux truck will have room for five occupants, and cab configurations will be the same.
Some renderings are showing a new touchscreen, borrowed from the Land Cruiser SUV. We expect to see a new version of the infotainment system, a new dashboard, and a new center console. While basic features such as Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto are standard, new safety aids, leather upholstery, and a larger display will come as an option.
New Hybrid Powertrain
Once again, a 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine will come as standard. Thanks to that, the 2024 Toyota Hilux will produce an impressive 308 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. Interestingly, the current model provides significantly less power, so it is quite an improvement. One of the highlights will be the new hybrid powertrain. It is a mild-hybrid system with an electric motor that will generate around 210 horsepower.
Of course, the goal is to provide better fuel efficiency, so expect impressive mileage. The all-electric model will not happen yet, although the 2025MY seems like a good candidate. We are waiting for Toyota to reveal the official engine lineup, although we don’t expect more surprises.
2024 Toyota Hilux Price, Release Date
The price of the next 2024 Toyota Hilux will start at $30,000. That is more than before, but this increase is reasonable. Moreover, the Hilux Hybrid truck will cost at least $35k. Hilux will firstly go on sale in Australia, where it will compete with the mid-size Ford Ranger. The sales will begin next summer, per the source.
