TOYOTA Motor Philippines (TMP) has further beefed up the lineup of the country's number one pickup with its introduction of the new Hilux GR Sport (GR-S).
Taking cues from the Dakar-winning GR Hilux, the new Hilux GR-S now comes with a tougher design through a wide-tread body, matte black GR-S overfenders, 17-inch alloy GR design wheels with all-terrain tires, and the GR Aero sports bar.
The new version is also wider by 120 mm and taller by 65 mm. All in all, the exterior features a more rugged look than its predecessor, giving a better impression of its improved generational characteristics of quality, durability and reliability.
Under the hood, the new Hilux GR-S is powered by a 2.8L diesel, 4-cylinder, 16-valve DOHC variable nozzle turbo engine with an air-cooled intercooler. It now features an improved maximum output of 224 PS and a maximum torque of 550 Nm.
Additionally, it includes GR front and rear disc brakes with GR brake calipers, and monotube shock absorbers. Inside, it is clad in GR-S suede and leather seats with emblem on the leather steering wheel, while the leather door trims with technical mesh and red seat belts.
New amenities such as the nine-inch display audio with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a wireless charger add spirit to every adventure, while functions such as smart entry and push start system offer convenience in each ride.
Available colors are emotional red, super white 2/attitude black mica (two-tone) and attitude black mica.
