(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.
