Internally known as 1GD-FTV, the 2.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine produces 177 PS of power along with 450 Nm of peak torque. That makes the engine always ready to reach speeds of up to 1600 rpm.
With an engine with more torque at low levels, the time to pass slower vehicles is much shorter. Also, while the six-speed automatic does not have a manual option, the transmission is smooth through the gears with virtually no drag.
That's not all. The 2018 Hilux Conquest is not designed for city roads but is also to overcome steep hills, muddy terrain, and long distances. Although it is only 177 PS, A good 450 Nm of pulling power also means that it has amounts of torque that is ideal for towing heavy cargo.
In case you need the engine to run even harder, you can select the “Power” mode on the Hilux's drivetrain so that the turbo-diesel engine unleashes its full potential. Then, to return the pickup to its normal state, the driver just easily presses the Power button again.
The “Eco” mode is also to help this model to save more fuel. With this mode, the fuel consumption of Hilux Conquest is about 15.0 km/l on the highway. On average, the car consumes about 10.0 - 10.5 km/l when driving in the city. In the event of a traffic jam, the Hilux pilot fuel level will be around 8.0 km/l.
