Toyota Hilux is one of the most popular pickup trucks in the world. For years it is used in the most hostile places in the planet and they are known for their reliability. However, the Japanese manufacturer did not made the current model (nor any of the previous) available to the buyers in the United States, which is strange, especially when you take in account the popularity of pickups in that market. Now, with the 2016 Toyota Hilux everything is going to change, because this model will be the first to be officially sold in the United States. The new Hilux will have a new chassis (the same as the Tacoma) and it will be more fuel efficient than its predecessor.

On the outside, the whole car should look like its predecessor, although it will be a little longer, wider and taller, mostly because of the new chassis. In the European market, the biggest rival of the new Toyota Hilux 2016 is going to be the current Volkswagen Amarok. On the front of the pickup, new headlights have been used along with new grille with chrome accents, which houses the Toyota logo. Thanks to the new bumper design, it should be easier to load cargo in the back.

The interior of the 2016 Hilux is not going to get as many changes as the exterior. It appears that the Japanese manufacturer decides to keep the classic look that is loved by many previous buyers and they expect that they could decide to upgrade just because of the familiar interior. On the other hand, the interior might look similar like the one in the current model, but the company decided to use better materials, so the overall feel in the cabin is much better. Furthermore, the 2016 Toyota Hilux base model is going to have lots more features than the previous base model.
