Special-edition ute has remote locking motorised plastic deck lid
Punters love their blinged-up onetonne utes - so this limited edition run of 300 Toyota Hilux SR5s is likely to prove popular when they go on sale early next year.
Toyota New Zealand has announced it has developed the TRD (Toyota Racing Development) Special Edition Hilux ute, complete with matte black TRD accessories and a remote locking motorised ABS plastic hard lid - a New Zealand first.
Based on the Hilux SR5 double cab diesel model, the Hilux TRD will be available in both 2WD and 4WD, with a choice of manual and automatic transmissions.
"We displayed a concept Hilux TRD at Fieldays back in June, which garnered a lot of favourable comments," says Steve Prangnell, Toyota New Zealand’s general manager of sales.
"Hilux TRD has been very popular in the past and we are sure this 2017 version will be no different. The TRD accessories add a bold visual point of difference to the Hilux."
