Unlike our local 2.5 litre turbocharged non-intercooled Hilux, the Australian Toyota Hilux comes in three variants – a 2.7 litre VVT-i (found in our petrol Fortuner), a 4.0 litre V6 VVT-i as well as a 3.0 litre intercooled turbodiesel. The 4.0 litre V6 is good for 235 horsepower and 343Nm of torque between 2,400rpm to 4,800rpm. To quality for this concept truck to have the TRD badge on it, what Toyota has done is fit a supercharger to the V6. Official power output has not been disclosed, but expect something in excess of the 320 horsepower range.
The bodykit has TRD all over it, with the letters TRD embossed above the front grille. The front bumper has some very nicely done foglamp inserts, and looks perfect for showcasing a shiny intercooler in the central air intake.
