The off-road themed catalogue or parts borrows items from the fabled TRD (Toyota Racing Development) division.
“The transformation starts at the front with a dramatic red TRD-branded skid plate, which provides a stark contrast to the powerful new black TRD grille, TRD lower bumper cover and TRD fender flares,” Toyota says in a statement.
“Edgy black 18-inch six-spoke alloy wheels and a robust black sports bar enhance the unabashed macho look of this special HiLux, which also features black mouldings along the body side and the leading edge of the bonnet.”
The parts kit includes a towing kit (tongue, ball and wiring harness), ute liner, soft tonneau cover, tail light covers and TRD mudflaps. Inside, the TRD kit brings TRD carpet floor mats to suit manual vehicles, or TRD carpet floor mats to suit automatics vehicles and a TRD gear knob for automatic variants.
“We have responded to that demand by compiling premium components, including the respected TRD brand, that will further distinguish HiLux from the competitors and from every other HiLux in our range.”
