Old Time Hilux reliability has grown bigger

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Toyota Hilux double cab has ascended the status of legends, more so in South Africa where the coveted bakkie is sought for all kinds of different reasons. From the farmer and the challenges of his terrain, to the city sleeker who wants power and recognition for his drive, the Hilux never disappoints.
The 2017 Hilux double cab vehicles – all 10 of them – carry forward the boldness and toughness associated with this bakkie. For starters, before you even touch this vehicle, its allure by just looking at it is magical. This time the Hilux is bulkier, giving it the physical presence that should worry others like the Ford Ranger and VW Amarok and such other stout bakkies.
Its car-centric interior is stark reminder why some want to drive the Hilux double cab as a family car. It is spacious and comfortable, with the dashboard to die for. All models include a touchscreen with DVD and video playback, a full-colour TFT multi-information display, and especially efficient climate control. Also included are driver knee airbags and reverse camera.
All the bakkies also comes with alarm, immobiliser and ultrasonic sensor; anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Brake Assist (BA) and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD); and Drive Mode Select (Eco and Sport).
Medium to higher models have additional specs such as Downhill Assist Control (DAC), Active Traction Control (TRC), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Trailer Sway Control (TSC).
With the prices ranging from R385 800 for the entry level 2.7 VVTi RB SRX MT to R621 600 for the 4.0 V6 4X4 RAIDER AT, the Hilux double cabs do not come cheap. It’s because nothing cheap forms part of dsign and manufacture; they are vehicles of high quality and built to last a lifetime.
