Aussies get new, tougher HiLuxes too


The names and some of the styling choices may dif­fer­ent but like Toy­ota NZ, Toy­ota Aus­tralia is adding three new ‘ Tuff Truck’ mod­els to its 2018 HiLux ( Note that our Aus­tralian coun­ter­parts cap­i­talise the L in HiLux) line-up for 2018. The three new 4x4 vari­ants – the HiLux Rogue, Rugged and Rugged X – will ex­tend the “un­break­able” rep­u­ta­tion of HiLux with fea­tures that boost off-road pro­tec­tion, re­cov­ery and func­tion­al­ity. Toy­ota Aus­tralia’s vice pres­i­dent sales and mar­ket­ing Sean Han­ley said the new mod­els will add a bold, as­pi­ra­tional at­ti­tude to the quintessential HiLux at­tributes of be­ing tough, strong and un­break­able. “HiLux buy­ers in­creas­ingly de­mand ad­di­tional fea­tures – in fact, they spend more on ac­ces­sories than any other ve­hi­cle in our range,” Mr Han­ley said. “HiLux Rugged X is a no-com­pro­mise ve­hi­cle for those seek­ing ad­ven­ture with a ro­bust and ca­pa­ble ve­hi­cle that makes the ul­ti­mate state­ment: work hard, play harder. “HiLux Rogue is for peo­ple who want re­fine­ment and ca­pa­bil­ity, en­abling them to go for week­end ad­ven­tures and do it in style. “HiLux Rugged is about tough­ness and off-road per­for­mance – an ideal ve­hi­cle for get­ting off the beaten track.”
