In the near future, Toyota will launch a more muscular and off-road capable variant of its Hilux pickup truck in Thailand in order to diversify its pickup truck lineup in Thailand.
It has been revealed that there will be an imminent debut of the Hilux Rogue in the Thai car market thanks to a series of spy shots. In September 2022, Toyota will launch its Rogue model in Australia.
The test unit has widened wheel arches, a taller stance, off-road tires, new wheels, and a few decorative trim pieces on the exterior. All of these improvements can be found in Hilux Rogue, which is a direct competitor to Ford Ranger Raptor.
Hilux Rogue has a similar turbocharged 2.8 liter, 4-cylinder diesel engine that makes 201 horsepower and 500 Newton-meters of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox with four-wheel-drive and lockable differentials for off-road driving.
The rogue variant features upgrades such as a rear stabilizer bar, 18-inch alloy wheels, and rear ventilated disc brakes. With some minor improvements in the suspension, Toyota Hilux Rogue’s ride height is 20 millimeters higher than other variants, allowing for better ground clearance.
Other improvements include:
- Motorized roller cover
- Heated front seats
- Perforated leather upholstery
- 360º camera
- Trailer wiring harness and tow ball
- Nine-speaker premium audio system
- Parking sensors, etc.
In Australia, Hilux Rogue costs the equivalent of Rs. 10.7 million, which places it in the premium car category. Regardless, it will likely become popular in any market due to its popularity and high demand.
