The Toyota Hilux is a beast in every respect of the word; it’s huge, hungry and very hardcore. While it’s been around for many years, most people will immediately recognise the name thanks to some amazing feats of strength, endurance and versatility on Top Gear. An ‘indestructible’ car, the Hilux is simply the big daddy in the world of pickup trucks and 4x4 motoring.
The original model was released way back in 1968 and its huge popularity spawned many further generations. While each one may differ in terms of design, the same dogged determination can be seen right across the board. Hardiness is an inbuilt quality that can never be removed; being tough is part of the Hilux’s DNA.
The main reason to buy a pickup truck is because it can be used for numerous different things. The Hilux is a great commercial vehicle for farmers, tradesmen and heavy industry alike thanks to its dominant size and flatbed, and offers a large than life alternative for every day motoring too. It’ll take pretty much anything that can be thrown at it and push on through with incredible resolve- tough terrain, extreme weather and heavy loads are no trouble at all.
Newer generations have certainly been thought about in terms of design and also in terms of comfort, functionality and kit. You can find anything from aircon to electric seats, sat nav to CD players and much more. There are also loads of optional extras for those people who want to take the Hilux to the extreme. Reliability is second to none, and while it isn’t the fastest car in the world, it’ll still get you there on time.
There’s a great selection of used Toyota Hilux cars at Motors.co.uk and big price discounts mean it’s one of the best second hand cars for sale in terms of value for money. It can go almost anywhere, do almost anything and live to tell the tale.
If you’re looking for a truck that’s rough, ready and rugged, there’s nothing better than a Toyota Hilux. It’s a motoring powerhouse with a fearsome reputation and deserves the utmost respect!
