2019 Toyota Hilux USA, South Africa, Specs

Considering recent changes, it is pretty much for sure that the 2019 Toyota Hilux will come pretty much unchanged. The legendary truck has been around for decades. The first version came in 1968 and we have seen eight generations so far.

The current generation is present since 2015. However, the company has already introduced some changes. Last year, we saw a nice update when this remarkable truck received plenty of novelties. There is a new styling, which follows the latest corporate look. So, expect no changes for the next year. The 2019 Hilux will continue in the same way, featuring familiar overall design, fulfilled with new details from the last year.

On the other side, mechanical aspect has been unchanged since 2015, and that state should remain for some time more. Considering this lack of changes, we don’t expect some earlier arrival, but in the late 2018.

The 2019 Toyota Hilux is likely to remain unchanged. As we already mentioned, the current 2018-year model has received some nice updates, so it is hard to believe in another update only year later. To remind you, a last-year update included mostly visual changes. Just it is usual, the focus was on the front end. So, there is a new front fascia, along with the new bumper that comes with new LED lighting group.

Basically, the legendary truck now features a design close to the North American Tacoma. Other areas of the truck suffered as well, but in such intensity. On the other side, mechanical aspect of the car has remained the same. For the next year, we could see only some minor tweaks in terms of new color options, interior schemes etc. Rest will continue in the same way.

Speaking of the interior design, we don’t expect to see bigger changes besides new color schemes. The cabin will remain the same, featuring familiar design which provides a perfect balance between comfort and capability of this truck. The cabin is pretty spacious and offers plenty of convenience. An attractive dashboard will most likely continue without bigger changes, although some new standard features could come.

Speaking of standard equipment, this amazing truck usually comes in three trim levels. Those are Active, Icon and Invincible. Each of these versions is designed for a specific drivers group, offering not just different list of equipment, but design tweaks as well. Still, consider that this truck is offered worldwide, so trim level organization could vary depending on the market.
