In the opinion of Sean Hanley, Toyota Australia Sales and Marketing Boss, the company will certainly manage to make its best-selling pick-up more competitive than ever.

The Toyota Hilux now tops the auto sales chart in Australia with around 35,229 units sold. So, there is a strong possibility that the brand will end its successful year with the first rank. As for the Ford Ranger, with 32,620 vehicles delivered, it currently takes the second place.
