Milele Motors from Dubai has leaked the images of the 2021 Toyota Hilux facelift. The pick-up is expected to feature subtle cosmetic updates on outside.
The images of the upcoming 2021 Toyota Hilux facelift have recently leaked by a Dubai dealer named Milele Motors. These new images of the updated pick-up have revealed many changes that the new model would carry. The carmaker decided to give the highly popular pick-up a facelift because of the increasing competition in its segment. The Japanese automaker introduced the first facelift of the Hilux pick-up back in 2018 with some minor hanges, but this time around, the changes are more significant and more substantial. The upcoming 2021 Toyota Hilux will employ a huge hexagonal grille upfront with blacked-out twin horizontal slats.
The updated pick-up will compete with the likes of new-gen Isuzu D-Max V-Cross
The front fascia of the pick-up will also get a revised bumper section, redesigned central air inlet and L-shaped fog lamp housing. Moreover, the rear profile of the car will feature new LED taillights with hexagonal lighting guides. The top-of-the-line variants will get 18-inch dual-tone aluminium alloy wheels.
As per variant levels, Toyota will offer metallic grey or chrome grille surrounds. Illumination duties will be done by reshaped headlamps which consist of bi-LED projector units, replacing the LED low beam and halogen high beam units offered with the outgoing model. The entry-level variants of the 2021 facelifted Toyota Hilux will employ halogen units with LED side blinkers. Moreover, the pick-up will also be offered in three new colour shades, namely- Emotional Red II, Dark Blue Mica and Oxide Bronze Metallic.
2021 Toyota Hilux will be propelled by a 2.8-litre four-pot diesel engine
The interior images of the updated 2021 Toyota Hilux are not out yet, but we expect the vehicle to gain some minor updates. These updated features may include a new touchscreen infotainment system Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. Mechanically, it’ll derive power from a revised 2.8-litre, turbocharged, four-cylinder, oil-burner. The new power plant will be tuned to offer higher power and torque outputs. The new updates to the diesel mill could be carried forward to the new-gen Land Cruiser, Land Cruiser Prado and Fortuner.
