The All-New Toyota Hilux GR Sport: Ready to Take On Any Challenge
Toyota’s newest release, the Hilux GR Sport, is a Dakar inspired powerhouse that is sure to revolutionize Australia’s off-roading scene. With an improved engine and chassis design, this model will be available in showrooms come the second half of 2021. Let’s take a look at what makes this truck so great!
Power & Performance
At its heart lies a 2.8 liter turbodiesel engine with 221 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque – one of the most powerful outputs ever achieved by a Hilux yet! Its 6-speed automatic transmission has been tuned for sportier shifts; paddle shifters come as standard features.
Off Road Capabilities Improved
Front axle width on the new GR Sport is 5.5 inches wider than normal models and rear axle width has been increased by 6.1 inches for greater stability when navigating any kind of terrain or obstacles. Monotube dampers, stiffer coil springs, redesigned wishbones and reinforced axles have all been implemented to improve durability during off road adventures; disc brakes are larger sized for better efficiency as well. Red recovery tow hooks add an extra bit of flair too!
Dimensions & Appearance
The new Sport stands out from other models with taller wheel arches clad in black cladding (2.6in) and widened profile (up 4.7in). That said it remains smaller than US market Tacoma TRD Pros which measure 209 – 79 – 74 respectively while this model comes in at 209 – 79 – 74 (L x W x H). Aggressive grilles at both front and rear give it an intimidating stance coupled with fog lamp housings altered to match body style plus bash plates replace factory skid plates adding even more charm both functionally and aesthetically speaking 17 inch black alloy wheels wrapped in AT tires top things off nicely here giving it added ruggedness where needed .
Interior & Features
Inside you’ll find just about everything found on regular Hilux model including but not limited 8″ touchscreen infotainment systems dual zone climate control power driver’s seat aluminum pedals etc albeit dressed up in all black motif featuring red stitched upholstery seatbelts silver accents throughout plus GR branding on headrests/steering wheel garnish gives it unique touch collectors can appreciate .
