New Toyota Hilux: Hydrogen-Powered Vehicle Prototype in UK | “Hy-Lux” Pickup | Car News | Animetroh
The Toyota Hilux, stylized as “HiLux” and historically as “Hi-Lux,” is a series of pickup trucks produced and marketed by the Japanese automobile manufacturer Toyota. The majority of these vehicles are sold as pickup truck or cab chassis variants, although they could be configured in a variety of body styles.
The pickup truck was sold under the Hilux name in most markets, but in North America, the Hilux name was retired in 1976 in favor of Truck, Pickup Truck, or Compact Truck. In North America, the popular option package, the SR5 (Sport Runabout 5-Speed), was colloquially used as a model name for the truck, even though the option package was also used on other Toyota models, like the 1972–1979 Corolla. In 1984, the Trekker, the wagon version of the Hilux, was renamed the 4Runner in Venezuela, Australia, and North America and the Hilux Surf in Japan. In 1992, Toyota introduced a newer pickup model, the mid-size T100, in North America, necessitating distinct names for each vehicle other than truck and pickup truck. The 4Runner has been a stand-alone SUV since 1995, when Toyota introduced the Tacoma to replace the Hilux pickup in North America.
Since the seventh-generation model was released in 2004, the Hilux shares the same ladder-frame chassis platform, called the IMV, with the Fortuner SUV and the Innova minivan.
Cumulative global sales in 2017 reached 17.7 million units. In 2019, Toyota revealed plans to introduce an electric-powered Hilux within six years.
