In late November last year, although the Toyota Hilux 2018 facelift was officially launched in our neighboring country Thailand, Toyota had yet to confirm the arrival of the new Hilux for PH market. Now that photos of the updated pickup spotted in the Philippine roads have surfaced online, it is believed that the updated Toyota Hilux is already hitting the local dealerships.
The photos of the allegedly refreshed PH-spec Hilux were posted on a Facebook Group
Looking at the photos posted on a Facebook Group, noticeable on the car are a new set of wheels, a revised fog lamp housing and a new hexagonal front grille. Another hint can be guessed from the pictures is that the spotted Hilux seems to be the Thai-spec Revo variant.

According to latest Toyota car price list, all models in the Hilux lineup are priced cheaper with a decrease of as much as P145,000 for the top-spec variant. However, it remains unclear if the refreshed Toyota Hilux 2018 price also comes in at the same price range.

Know more about Toyota Hilux 2021
<p>The Toyota Hilux is a pickup with a globally known nameplate for being one of the reliable workhorse vehicles. It was 1968 when Toyota's pickup truck started building a reputation for being rugged and dependable, and it continues until today with the facelifted model launched in 2020. This popular pickup continues to evolve and slowly move upmarket after gaining luxuries. The most significant revolutionary jump of the Hilux happened in 2004 when the seventh-generation of the model was introduced. It was the first 21st-century iteration of Toyota's pickup. It is also the first generation to ride on Toyota’s new Innovative Multi-purpose Vehicle architecture. It provided improved safety, better ride comfort, modern D-4D diesel engines, more interior space, and a more modern aerodynamic body. The current 8th generation offers a more refined and stylish design than its predecessor, but the tradition of being a tough pickup continues. It gets a much-awaited refresh in 2020 inline. Aside from improved looks, the Philippine iteration also comes with more powerful engine options. The Toyota Hilux is available in 4x4 and 4x2 variants. In the Philippines, the pickup truck is offered with diesel engines. It is available with automatic or manual transmission depending on the variant.</p>
