2016 Toyota HiLux Spied. Again.

The 2016 Toyota HiLux is only 24 hours away from its global debut (May 21) and the most revealing spy shots yet have hit the Internet.

TOYOTA IS preparing to stage the official debut of the 2016 Toyota HiLux tomorrow (21 May) and Practical Motoring will be in attendance. While it will be great to finally see the HiLux in the metal, the Internet has been awash with spy images of the HiLux and leaked engine details for months now.

And now, 24 hours ahead of the ute’s official debut come the most revealing spy shots yet. Published on Thailand-based forum and Facebook page Hilux Revo Thailand come these interior and exterior shots of a production-spec HiLux.

While we don’t yet know specific Australian specifications or pricing, we don know what engines will be available: there will be two diesels and both will be mated to a six-speed automatic.  They are: 2016 Toyota Hilux 2.4 AT: 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine with Toyota’s VNT (Variable Nozzle Turbo) technology; 119kW and 400Nm between 1600-2000rpm, 6AT gearbox.
