About Toyota New Hilux Full Model Change
The platform and engine will be developed (carry over) model while following the predecessor, but this time, of course,Adopt a ladder frame based on the “new platform” based on “TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture)”This makes it possible to obtain a wider interior space than the old model. By adopting a newly developed platform, such as realizing high aerodynamic performance, “lower center of gravity” and “increased body rigidity”, it has evolved significantly from the previous model.Realize weight reduction. In addition, the front and rear suspensions have been newly developed to improve off-road performance and on-road performance.Hill start assist control/Downhill assist controlTo improve the running performance on rough roadsRear differential lock standard on all models.
The exterior design is of course a keeping concept, but it becomes a more modern design and a more luxurious design. The engine adopts the in-line 4-cylinder 2.5L direct injection engine D-4S “Dynamic Force Engine” installed in Toyota’s new Camry and new RAV4. Better fuel efficiency and torque up than the old model and improved fuel efficiency. The second-generation next-generation “Toyota Safety Sense” is installed as standard on all models.
Equipped with the latest equipment such as a 12.3-inch infotainment display
9-inch display audio is adopted as standard, but as an option12.3-inch wide touchscreen T-Connect SD navigation system“”JBL premium sound system (12 speakers)”.
Equipped with electric parking brake and auto brake hold function
Electric parking brake (with hold function) is adopted. The electric parking brake and auto brake hold, which are now almost always used in new models, and the function that stops even if you speak the brake when stopping are standard functions that you would want to have if you purchased a new car. I am grateful that you are here.
Panoramic view monitor equipped as standard on all models
A panoramic view monitor is standard on all models. Although it is almost the same size as its predecessor, it is a very large car in Japan.
The latest safety system “Toyota Safety Sense” is equipped as standard on all models.
Toyota Safety Sense has been improved and fine-tuned to improve safety technology (Pedestrians can also be detected at night, leading vehicle start notification function). The name of the conventional “Toyota Safety Sense P/C” will be changed to “Toyota Safety Sense” as a collision avoidance support package. New features include a function to detect oncoming vehicles at intersections and pedestrians crossing the street when turning right or left, and an emergency steering avoidance support function. Intelligent clearance sonar is standard equipment. “Safety Support Car S (Wide)” (support car S
Main features of the 2nd generation next-generation Toyota Safety Sense
The 2nd generation next-generation Toyota Safety Sense is installed as standard on all models.In addition to ensuring excellent recognition performance and reliability by using a laser radar and a camera, it is packaged with a collision avoidance support type PCS, LDA, and AHB. Collision avoidance support/damage mitigation performance is ensured even at high speeds.
It supports the latest “collision avoidance support type pre-crash safety”, “detection at intersections”, “low speed acceleration control function” and “emergency steering avoidance support function”.Collision avoidance support type pre-crash safety (PCS) with pedestrian detection functionA millimeter-wave radar and camera are used to detect vehicles and pedestrians in front, and alerts, brake assist, and automatic braking are used to help avoid collisions and reduce damage. Automatic braking works on pedestrians in the speed range of 10 to 80 km/h. For example, if the speed difference with the pedestrian is 30 km/h, the vehicle slows down by approximately 30 km/h to help avoid collisions. . For vehicles, it operates in a wide range of speeds from 10km/h to maximum speed. In addition, “low speed acceleration suppression function”, “oncoming straight vehicle and pedestrian detection when turning right at intersection”, and “emergency steering avoidance support function” have been added.
- At low speeds, the low-speed acceleration suppression function detects pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles in front of the vehicle and suppresses acceleration.
- It can also detect oncoming vehicles when turning right at an intersection, and pedestrians crossing the opposite direction when turning right or left.
- An emergency steering avoidance support function that assists steering when the driver avoids steering in an emergency.
Road Sign Assist (RSA)In addition to expanding the detection target, it also reads major traffic signs such as “speed limit”, “stop”, “no entry” and “no stray” on the side of the road and displays them on the instrument panel.
Lane Departure Alert (LDA)A camera recognizes the white and yellow lines in the driving lane, and if it detects the possibility of lane departure, it warns the driver with a buzzer and display to help avoid collisions due to lane departure.
Automatic high beam (AHB)A camera detects the headlights of an oncoming vehicle or the taillights of a preceding vehicle, and automatically switches between high beam and low beam to reduce dazzle for drivers of other vehicles and help secure forward visibility at night.
radar cruise controlThe radar cruise control system uses a millimeter-wave radar to detect the distance between the vehicle and the vehicle in front, and adjusts the vehicle speed to match the speed of the vehicle ahead, allowing the vehicle to follow the vehicle while maintaining a certain distance. Millimeter-wave radar and a camera detect when the vehicle ahead changes lanes, enabling smoother acceleration and deceleration control. Aiming for the ultimate goal of a mobile society, which is to achieve zero traffic casualties, Toyota researches and develops various safety equipment and systems based on the Integrated Safety Concept, aiming to develop safer vehicles and technologies. While striving forward, we are strengthening a wide range of initiatives for traffic safety through “participation in improving the traffic environment” and “traffic safety awareness activities for people.”
Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)When driving on a highway or highway, if the Lane Tracing Assist[LTA]switch is turned ON while the radar cruise control is in operation, the steering operation assistance necessary for keeping the lane is performed. Added curve speed control function. System for dealing with driver abnormalities Added a function that detects driver abnormalities and contributes to lifesaving.
Curve speed control functionWhen the radar cruise control is activated, the speed control starts when the steering wheel is turned.
Preceding vehicle start notification functionIf the vehicle stops following the vehicle ahead due to waiting at a traffic light or in a traffic jam, and if the vehicle is left without noticing that the vehicle ahead has started, a buzzer and display will notify the driver.
Toyota 2nd generation version Toyota Safety Sense introduced from 2018 Comparison Changes
Intelligent clearance sonar (standard on all models)A system that mitigates collisions that occur when the accelerator is pressed incorrectly or too far, helping to reduce damage. A function to reduce contact with stationary objects has been added to the “clearance sonar” that notifies the driver of approaching stationary objects by displaying and buzzing when driving such as parking in the garage. The sonar detects glass such as convenience stores firmly. If a stationary object is detected in the direction of travel while driving at low speed (15km/h or less), the hybrid system output is suppressed, and the brakes are automatically applied when the distance is further reduced.
Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) Radar detects vehicles running in the next lane. When the vehicle enters the blind spot area, the LED indicator mounted on the door mirror lights up.
Rear cross traffic auto brakeDetects blind spots when reversing and calls attention. If there is a risk of collision, the system automatically applies brake control to help reduce damage from collisions with approaching vehicles.
Emergency brake signal (hazard lamp flashing type)Hazard lamps automatically flash when the brakes are applied suddenly.
digital inner mirrorThe image of the camera attached to the rear of the vehicle is displayed on the rearview mirror. It also has a recording function.
Remote start (app)A new optional service that allows you to start the engine and air conditioner from the MyTOYOTA app.

A pickup truck type car produced and sold by Toyota Motor Corporation. The name of the vehicle is a coined word combining “High” and “Luxury”, aiming to create a pickup truck that is as luxurious as a passenger car. Hilux is a car sold in more than 180 countries and regions around the world. More than 16 million units have been sold to date, and like the Toyota Land Cruiser, it enjoys strong support from users around the world. In order to respond to various usage environments and users’ voices around the world, test runs were conducted on many roads around the world.
From 1989 to 1996, the Hilux was produced at the Volkswagen plant as part of a partnership between Toyota and Volkswagen. Half of the cars will be sold by Toyota Europe as the Toyota Hilux, and the other half will be sold by Volkswagen under the car name Taro.
Sales began in September 1997 and ended in the fall of 2004 in Japan.
Pickup trucks, SUVs, and minivans were set as the world strategic vehicle “IMV series”, and this pickup truck model inherited the 7th generation Hilux.
In Japan, the 6th generation model was actually continued to be sold after 2004, and production and sales began in 2005. With the revival of the new Hilux, it will be resold in Japan for the first time in 12 years. Toyota made a full model change of the new Hilux and started selling it in Thailand on March 15, 2015. Also sold in Australia. In Japan, it was announced on September 12, 2017 and started selling. Dealers will be exclusive to Toyota dealers nationwide.
