TRD HiLux by Toyota

Toyota Australia revealed a final pre-production variant of the supercharged TRD HiLux in Sydney at the Australian International Motor Show. TRD HiLux will now be the second auto in the TRD line-up, after the launch of TRD Aurion in August.

`TRD HiLux will stand alone as a sports-tough truck with a unique combination of sports performance and real-world practicality` said David Buttner – Toyota`s senior executive director marketing and sales for Australia. `Its supercharged engine, powerful styling and tough-truck attributes give it real credibility as a sports vehicle. Importantly, TRD has achieved performance and handling upgrades while maintaining the original vehicle`s impressive off-road and workhorse abilities. TRD HiLux will swallow up work activities such as transporting tools, hauling a trailer and heading off the bitumen. At the same time, it will be ideal on weekends for the active family - carrying sports equipment and towing a boat`.

Mr Buttner said the TRD`s mission is to offer buyers integrated performance autos. `Just like TRD Aurion, new TRD HiLux is a balanced performance-enhanced package that will add even more excitement to the Toyota range in Australia` he said.
