All-New 2016 Toyota Hilux Advertisement Reveals Possible May 22nd Debut

Gerard May 7, 2015 15:24

It appears an official countdown to the launch of the all-new 2016 Toyota Hilux has started as this advertisement published by the Hilux Revo Thailand Facebook page reveals a May 22nd reveal date.

Prior to this, the same Facebook page also expected the next-generation pick-up truck to make its debut on May 21st. However, these convincing advertisements do seem to point otherwise.

With the slogan “Revolution is coming” and writing in Thai, the eighth-generation Toyota Hilux would make its debut where it will be produced. When it does, it will face-off against competitors like the Ford Ranger, Mazda BT-50, the upcoming all-new 2015 Mitsubishi Triton, and Nissan Navara.

The advertisement itself doesn’t show much of the pick-up but those thin lights do look a lot like daytime-running lights which were shown in various spyshots before. Whether this is limited to the Thai-spec model, we’ll have to wait and see.

Powerplants offered are expected to be two new diesel engines in 2.4- and 2.8-litre capacities producing between 150 to 177hp and 343 to 450Nm of torque, mated to manual and automatic transmissions.

About Gerard

My first impressions of a dream car should be a ridiculous top speed with physics defying cornering capabilities, namely the Ferraris, Paganis and what not. Deep down, I just want something that makes you feel special when you drive it, expensive or not.
