Charged pickup Toyota GR Hilux can get a new diesel V6March 31, 2020
The Japanese mid-size truck in the high-performance GR version can get a new diesel engine with high torque. The novelty will be more powerful than the diesel Ford Ranger in the “charged” version of Raptor.
When Toyota said it would make high-performance versions of each of its models, she was not joking. That was a little over a year ago. And last month, the company said that the GR and TRD sub-brands that will upgrade the brand’s production models can coexist peacefully with each other.
Even the mid-size Hilux pickup truck has already received a more powerful version from the Toyota GR Sport division – the car received an updated appearance and an upgraded suspension, but the best is yet to come.
It is reported that the truck may receive a completely new V6 turbodiesel. It is said that this high-torque motor will debut in the next-generation Land Cruiser 300 SUV and will be installed in other Toyota models.
At the moment, it remains a mystery how much power the new diesel V6 will supply. At least it will be more powerful than the current 4.5-liter V8 diesel engine with its 268 hp. (650 Nm). The presence of all-wheel drive is taken for granted, along with a more powerful suspension and chassis to turn the Hilux into a truck with the right performance. Most likely, he will use more powerful brakes and get a more aggressive design.
So far, there is no data on when Toyota will present us with a more productive version of the current generation of Hilux. The next generation truck will be presented in 2023.
