As you can see, the Toyota Hilux Tonka is coming in a black – orange combination. Really it looks like a kid toy magnified to adults need. More precisely to a man’s need. The concept is based on the Hilux SR5. It is equipped with a 2.8 –liter turbo diesel engine. The most eyecatcher, and most important part of this masterpiece are probably the wheels, which are 35 inches. A truly massive wheels which allows great opportunities to this monster, and to make a best of it. The ground part has been modificated and also it’s been updated with a high-riding axles and a heavy-duty suspension. The front bar is extremely nice with a new LED lights. Also there is a whole new tailgate wrapped in carbon fiber. The air flew is now more effective with an updated two air vents. There are diesel fuel cans, fire extinguisher, a high-lift jack and a shovel as well. In the storage box we can find the recovery gear if it needs for extreme highways. The new front bar is the part of the safety systems, while the bonnet wears a carbon-fibre skin.

As for the record, the Hilux wasn’t so popular in America, but for example in Australia the 2016 year seems it was outstanding for it, and also became a best selling non – passenger vehicle. Also for the end of the 2017 the Australians bought a quite a lot of it, around 920,000 examples.

America seems to be resident when it comes to Hilux, but maybe step by step it will became a favourite.
Also one interesting event, actually two, Toyota will celebrate their existence for 80 years, and Tonka their 70th birthday.
