Largest Hilux range in history

Largest Hilux range in history

Toyota’s largest Hilux range in history features an extensive 2WD line-up, making it a ute of choice for builders and tradespeople wanting the reassurance of the Toyota badge while enjoying increases in power and fuel efficiency.

Tradies can choose from either a standard 2WD height, or the new Hilux PreRunner which offers more ground clearance and the street appeal of a 4WD, but with a 2WD drivetrain.

The 2WD PreRunner has the perfect loading height of 861mm, making it easy for tradies to access tools and supplies from the tray.

This means that for the average height adult, your hip point is level with the tray of the ute, so there is a reduced need to bend and twist when shifting heavy items.

Heavy-duty suspension and a maximum payload of 985kg for S models, 970-975kg for PreRunner SR models, and 965kg for PreRunner SR5 Limited models means the Hilux 2WD Double Cab remains a truly versatile load carrier.
