A Thai brochure for the 2016 Toyota Hilux Revo has been leaked on the Hilux Revo Thailand Facebook page, revealing a treasure trove of details regarding available kit, as well as the all-new pick-up truck itself!

Cutting quite a stylish figure, the projector headlamps with LED DRL eyebrows and Light Control System are joined to the chrome grille, one bar of which intrudes into the headlamps. There are rear combi and fog lamps, a bee-sting antenna, 17-inch alloys, side steps and anti-pinch for the driver’s window.

Interior features include 60:40-split back seats, keyless entry and start, a 4.2-inch instrument panel multi-info display, auto air-con with rear vents, rear-seat Isofix, a 220-volt AC charger, cruise control and what looks like leather seats. The futuristic interior brings to mind the Corolla Altis‘ – how is this a truck cabin?!


A satin finish (or what looks like it) surrounds the side air vents and adorns the door cards, gear lever and the classy steering wheel’s bottom U-spoke. The passenger-side dashboard incorporates a storage box, and there’s a seven-inch T-Connect touch-screen with USB, AUX, Bluetooth and six speakers.

Now, the skeleton. The FIRM (Frame with Integrated Rigidity Mechanism) makes use of high-tensile strength steel, and there’s a new Dynamic Control Suspension system, plus Body Control with Torque Demand. A Drive Mode Switch allows selection of Eco and Power modes, while shift-on-the-fly allows shuffling between 2WD and 4WD. Also on are Active Traction Control and a diff-lock.

New engines – a 2.8 litre 1GD-FTV and a 2.4 litre 2GD-FTV from the GD family, which respectively replace the KD-family 3.0 litre 1KD-FTV and 2.5 litre 2KD-FTV. The new engines have common-rail direct-injection, variable-nozzle turbos, exhaust gas recirculation and a stop/start system, and are Euro 4-compliant for the Thai market.


The larger engine does 177 hp at 3,400 rpm and 450 Nm of torque between 1,600 and 2,400 rpm when mated to the new six-speed auto (with the new six-speed manual, 420 Nm between 1,400 and 2,600 rpm). The smaller engine produces 150 hp at 3,400 rpm and 400 Nm of torque between 1,600 and 2,000 rpm with the six-speed auto (with a five-speed manual, 343 Nm between 1,400 and 2,800 rpm).

The 2.7 litre Dual VVT-i petrol makes a comeback, developing 166 hp at 5,200 rpm and 245 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. This engine can be had with a five-speed manual or six-speed auto.

The safety arsenal comprises seven airbags, traction control, VSC, ABS, EBD, BA, trailer sway control, hill start assist and downhill assist. Note that all these lovely features are on the range-topping 2.8G AT variant. We don’t know yet of lesser variants, but will keep you updated – the truck launches in Thailand very soon.
