Overseas, the Toyota Hilux is a well-known pickup with a long-standing positive reputation. While we’re more familiar with the company’s Tacoma variant in the states, there’s no denying that the Hilux has stood its ground in the automotive market elsewhere, with some claiming that it’s even better (on a global scale) than the company’s North American model. Now Toyota has announced the Hilux Invincible-X — a double-cab wonder with enhanced styling, a new powertrain, and improved instrumentation.
The Toyota Hilux Invincible-X boasts quite the interesting moniker, but, following a quick perusal of its specs and components, it’s easy to see why it’s been gifted the name. To give the truck even more gumption in the off-road department, Toyota has opted to introduce an all-new, 201-horsepower, 2.8-liter diesel engine, capable of pushing out an astonishing 369 lb-ft of torque. Each all-wheel-drive example will also adopt either a six-speed manual, or six-speed automatic transmission, enhanced bumper/grille redesigns, wheel arch extensions, and a dramatic interior revision, giving light to the truck’s instrument combimeter and eight-inch multimedia screen. There’s even a JBL premium sound system thrown in there, for good measure. Head to Toyota’s website to learn more about the Invincible-X, which will release this November for around $31,500.
