2016 Toyota HiLux engine details leaked online

Expected to be revealed in June, details of the 2016 Toyota HiLux engine line-up have leaked online, with the new diesel engines being smaller.

DETAILS ON THE 2016 Toyota HiLux are being kept under wraps but it appears not everyone at Toyota is following the company line with a snap of the engine line-up leaking from an internal briefing in Thailand. Thanks to Indian Autos Blog we have a translation of the picture, which says the 2016 HiLux will downsize from its 2.7-litre and 3.0-litre engines to 2.4-litre and 2.8-litre engines.

2016 Toyota HiLux engine line-up:

2016 Toyota Hilux 2.4 MT: 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine with Toyota’s VNT (Variable Nozzle Turbo) technology; 111kW at 3600rpm and 343Nm between 1400-3400 rpm, 5MT gearbox. The current 2.7-litre engine punches out 117kW and 240Nm.

2016 Toyota Hilux 2.4 AT: 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine with Toyota’s VNT (Variable Nozzle Turbo) technology; 123kW and 400Nm between 1600-2000rpm, 6AT gearbox.

2016 Toyota Hilux 2.8 MT: 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine with Toyota’s VNT (Variable Nozzle Turbo) technology; 130kW at 3400rpm and 420Nm between 1400-2600rpm, 6MT gearbox. The current 3.0-litre diesel offers 126kW and 360Nm.

2016 Toyota Hilux 2.8 AT: 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine with Toyota’s VNT (Variable Nozzle Turbo) technology; 130kW and 450Nm between 1600-2400rpm, 6AT gearbox.

Something people should be aware of. Diesel engines were never designed to be small and have every ounce of torque thrashed out of them. The smaller they are the more technology required to make them work and the more can go wrong. Look at the revs required before you achieve maximum torque and power with the new engine. While you doing that I’m already at the next traffic light waiting for you. All the current model diesels have more power and torque on paper than the Current 3L diesel Hilux. And they all left behind in the dust because of this statistical witch craft. Yes you have more power and torque. When do you get it and how long will the engine last. LOL

I am truly looking forward to my next stop light to stop light drag race.

Central, you need to study up on the engineering advances of common rail diesel engines. Before common rail, intercoolers, turbo charging we had big old conventional diesels which were used for lugging heavy loads around the country 24/7. Development of the most recent common rail diesel engines producing big torque figures has revolutionised the motoring industry. All doubts are removed when you check out the GM/Fiat developed VM Motori 2.8 diesel engine currently fitted to the Holden Colorado range, as well as a few of the popular Jeep vehicles. Probably the smartest of the modern common rail engines, this motor is able to deliver over 720 nm of torque when fitted with the UniChip black boxes. No point going to three or four litre, as there are few gearboxes available outside the Allison range, that will remain reliable under such load. The six speed auto in the Colorado is a safe bet, as it is designed to handle bigger V8 petrol engines. Good luck trying to beat one of these things at the lights.
