Next, concerning the Toyota Hilux Rugged, it features similar off-road appearance to the X but for heavy-duty components. Outstandingly, the trim is decked with a premium steel bull bar. Like the X, the Rugged is likewise fitted with bi-tone 6-spoke alloys; however, it only comes with halogen reflector headlights with LED daytime running lights.

Lastly, the Hilux Rogue, because of sitting behind the Rugged X, is surely less functional than the top-end trim but it’s still alluring and powerful with new front fascia adorned with gloss black grill with grey surrounds, all-black alloys, black door handles, black wing mirror caps, and black badges as well. Further, it is indulged with LED headlights and sports bar with “Rogue” badges.
