Yes the Toyota Hilux 2018 facelift has finally hit our shores!

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.

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.

The Toyota Hilux 2024 is a midsize pickup offered in the local market as both fleet and regular units. Toyota Hilux Prices Philippines range from PHP 879,000 to PHP 2,166,000 with 13 variants, spanning from the basic cab & chassis 4x2 model to the range-topping GR Sport 4x4. It is also available in two turbodiesel engine options and four gearbox choices, accompanied by eight exterior colors. Dimensions start at 5,285mm in height, 1,800mm in width, and 1,700mm in height, with a wheelbase of 3,085mm. Among the rivals to the Toyota Hilux in the market are the Mitsubishi Strada, Nissan Navara, Ford Ranger, and the Isuzu D-Max.

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 received a much-awaited refresh in 2020.
