New 2022 Toyota Hilux Model, Release Date

New 2022 Toyota Hilux Model, Release Date – Hilux 2022 was around the corner and some leaks and spy shots gave us an idea of what it looked like. We hope Toyota will reveal the Hilux 2022 with real changes inside and out to go with some changes under the hood.

The highlight of the 2022 Toyota Hilux is the upgraded 2.8-liter engine. In the current model, diesel engines make 174 horses and 332 pound-feet of torque when mated with an automatic transmission or 174 ponies and 310 pound-feet of torque when equipped with manual transmission.

It can run to 62 miles per hour from being stopped in 10 seconds. When attached to a six-speed manual gearbox, the same engine makes 201 horses and 310 pound-feet of torque. The engine is available in Extra Cab and Double Cab body styles.

No changes were made to the 2.4-liter milk, so it still makes 150 ponies and 295 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox. Japanese cars have reduced idling speeds from 850 rpm to 680 rpm, which will result in better fuel efficiency and more improvements.

Toyota also mentioned that it has been working on the Hilux suspension system, and longer ride shocks and spring leaf setups have also improved for better driving dynamics.

2022 Toyota Hilux Exterior

Outside, Toyota has not made any structural changes. Upfront, a kind of cladding has been added that integrates grilles and air dams in bumpers. Toyota calls it a three-dimensional grille. It looks like a French beard and it suits the stature of a truck. The bumpers are redesigned and the fog light housing now looks more prominent. Led light clusters are also tweaked for a fresh look.

2022 Toyota Hilux Specs

The side profile looks sharper now with the addition of new elements and graphics all around. Wheel arches with black plastic cladding have contrasting gray attachments on those that break down monotony, especially in dark colors. The new engine finish and black 18-inch wheels look fantastic. The ‘Invincible’ sticker is slapped on the side of the truck bed. The roll bar is a nice addition here.

Move back and you’ll see bolder LED backlights. The back looks pretty busy with lots of fresh design elements. The handle to open the tailgate receives ‘Hilux’ badging. Stoplights are also installed here. The XL-sized ‘Invincible’ moniker appears on its namesake trim.

Toyota Hilux Colors

It seems a little too much, to be honest. But that said, the truck must have demanded attention. The Japanese carmaker has even introduced three new colors to add to the tenacity factor – Emotional Red II, Dark Blue, and Oxide Bronze Metallic.

Inside, things are not very different. It still offers the same amount of space as its predecessor. Toyota has equipped a new “combi meter design” in the instrument cluster.

Good to see Toyota focusing on the top function of the form when most cars will be button-less on their vehicles. Supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other features include:

  • Smart Entry And Start Button
  • Satellite Navigation
  • Automatic Air Conditioning
  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors
  • JBL Nine Speaker Premium Sound System With 800W Eight Channel Amplifier

2022 Toyota Hilux Release Date

Toyota has not disclosed the price of the 2022 Hilux yet. Changes made to the model will keep the truck fresh for several years until the next generation debuts. No word on GR Hilux high performance either. The Hilux 2022 is expected to hit dealers in July in Eastern Europe and in October in Western Europe.
