According to latest car news, Toyota has so far introduced a special replica of its famed pickup Hilux dubbed “Toyota Hilux Bruiser.” The new pickup truck is considered as a full-size version of the classic Tamiya from the ’80s. Still developed by Arctic Trucks team and based on the Hilux Extra Cab, the Hilux Bruiser is definitely a one-off pickup pattern you will truly desire for.

Outside, the new vehicle draws our attention to its high-metallic Diamond Blue vinyl. Even, the “Hog Heaven” livery and other decals have been manually replicated. Also, outstanding tri-color stripes flow along the side profile and border the hood. For the most part, all remind us of the Tamiya.

Apart from the Artic Trucks crew, contributing to the success of the Toyota Hilux Bruiser is also Robert Selway – an expert fabricator and model-maker. He has given the car’s load bed a replica on/off switch, rock sliders, tubular bumpers and R-shape body clips.

In spite of quite similar look to the Tamiya, under the Bruiser’s bonnet is a 2.4-liter turbo diesel mill, aired to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Undoubtedly, all-wheel drive system comes as standard. Let alone a seemingly toy-like silhouette, the Toyota Hilux Bruiser is street legal and is about to officially enroll in Toyota’s pickup lineup.

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>
