2021 Toyota Hilux Diesel should be made in a version of the similar model that goes on Australia and Thailand, made in the same factory as Fortuner, but with unique additions for buyers in these markets. There are few announcements of this model’s release, but it seems that it will wait for the end of the year.
- The model is great and very attractive.
- There is an excellent new diesel engine under the hood.
- The design has not been completely changed for a long time.
- The model is not unique.
One of the best advantages of the new 2021 Toyota Hilux Diesel is that it offers entirely new suspension on and off-road driving. It is something that buyers of last year’s models have complained about. Thanks to the changes that the manufacturer has offered in this and previous year model, they had won the Dakar Rally in 2019.
This time the car is even better in this field. It could ultimately compete with the Ford Ranger, one of the most important competitors. When it comes to the design, you will see completely new bumpers, especially impressive on the front end, with LED front and rear lights and new alloy wheels. The model stands on the 18-inch wheels, which is not too large to make model robust, but still impressive to make it more stylish and attractive.
There are significant changes inside of the 2021 Toyota Hilux Diesel. It seems that changes in the design of the cabin are most impressive and attractive. The first that attracted our attention is an 8-inch touchscreen in the center of the redesigned dashboard.
It looks impressive; you will see that they have improved the whole infotainment system, making the controlling from this software faster and easier. As the buyers of the last year’s model complained about the slow reaction of the commands and small icons, the manufacturer has improved it, adding Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connection.
You will be happy to see significant improvements in technology, including the new navigation system, air conditioning, and rear parking sensors. Depending on the trim version, you will be able to order things like leather on the seats, double-cab form, and luxury package in Invincible X version.
2021 Toyota Hilux Diesel Engine
Although we used on small engines in previous models, 2021 Toyota Hilux Diesel, this time comes with entirely new options and strengths. So, instead of the last year’s used 2.4-liter diesel model and its 148 horsepower, this time manufacturer has replaced it with the stronger and still economical 2.8-liter diesel model and its 201 horsepower. It is always a little weaker than 3.0-liter V6 diesel, which Volkswagen Amarok used last year.
However, this engine comes with the six-speed manual and automatic transmission, depending on the buyers’ choice. Maybe as much better than the engine is a redesign of the chassis and suspension that changes the car’s design, but much more important, driving and controlling on higher speed and all types of terrains. It includes revamped rear suspension, redesigned leaf springs, and bushes along with the returned shock absorbers.
2021 Toyota Hilux Diesel Release Date and Price
It is hard to say when will 2021 Toyota Hilux Diesel will be on the market. Since the models made for this year late in every market, we will be happy to see it before fall this year. The price of the model should be around $30,000, depending on the trim version.
