(Photo) A Tougher Hilux With More Balls???

Toyota Hilux 3.0G
UMW Toyota Motor has launched the Toyota Hilux 3.0G Double Cab (A), which sits atop the Hilux range with a RM 106,000 (OTR with insurance) price tag. For the RM 11,000 premium over the 2.5G Double Cab (A), you get the 3.0-liter 1KD-FTV turbodiesel engine with an intercooler, common-rail direct injection and a variable nozzle turbo (VNT), which reduces turbo lag, lowers emissions and improve throttle response.

Paired to a four-speed automatic transmission and 4WD system with rear Limited Slip Differential (LSD), the 3.0-liter turbodiesel unit generates 163 hp at 3400 rpm and 343 Nm between 1400-3200 rpm. By comparison, the 2.5G's 2.5-liter 2KD-FTV common-rail turbodiesel unit produces 102 hp at 3600 rpm and 260 Nm between 1600-2400 rpm.

Appearance-wise, there is little to differentiate the 3.0G except for an air scoop on the bonnet which feeds air to the top-mounted intercooler. The chrome side mirrors are now power-retractable in addition to power-adjustable. Inside, new items include a multi-information display, Toyota's Optitron instrument panel, auto door lock feature, seatbelt reminders and USB audio connectivity.

Despite lacking the power of rival, the locally-assembled Hilux is easily the best-selling truck in Malaysia, commanding 44 percent share of the double-cab truck market. Although a couple of years late, the fully imported from Thailand 3.0G variant can only increase the appeal of the Hilux.

So the new Hilux 3.0G is really got more balls. It looks so attractive but right now I can't afford it. It is good to have items. And the good news is Toyota Hilux 3.0G is already launched in Kota Kinabalu Sabah. Good thing for truck lovers.
