Arctic Trucks Turns The ’21 Hilux Into An All-Terrain Winter-Ready Pickup

Icelandic-based Arctic Trucks has been modifying the Toyota Hilux for well-over 20 years now, and with each iteration, it’s only improved its formula. Suffice to say, if you’re after a rig that’ll take you where few passenger vehicles have gone before, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone more up to the task.

With the reveal of its all-new AT35, Arctic Trucks has applied its off-road expertise to the 2021 Toyota Hilux. Under the hood, the powertrain remains the same — a 2.8L diesel drives 201hp and 369lb-ft of torque to all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. However, when it comes to the ride, you’ll find upgrades aplenty, including custom Bilstein springs and dampers, a revised anti-roll bar, as well as torque-optimized front and rear diffs. All in all, it sits 65mm higher than stock, with its approach angle improved by 9 degrees and its departure by some 3 degrees. Add to that some 17-inch alloys, 35-inch BFGoodrich KM3 Mud-Terrain tires, and a slew of add-ons such as underbody protection, a light bar, and a low-profile tonneau cover, and you have a truck that’s ready to tackle anything in its way. The conversion will run you about $25,610.
