Vromos_Toyota_Hilux_6x6_1

The Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6 is a stunning machine to behold. However, we don’t expect the six-wheel drive, 5.5 litre biturbo V8, 536 hp and 758 Nm truck to come cheap. Thankfully, there’s an alternative in the form of the Toyota Hilux 6×6, which should be relatively more affordable by comparison.

Handling the mechanical modifications on the Hilux 6×6 is the job of Bulgarian off-roading specialist Vromos. To create the Hilux 6×6, the company extended the truck’s frame to fit the additional axle, along with some extra differentials. The new frame also accommodates upgraded suspension, wheels and tyres to ensure that off-road duties are still catered for.

As for the interior, Vromos turned the truck over to Overdrive after it was done with the exterior. With a significant amount of experience in vehicle restoration, new and old alike, the company applied its talents here by first replacing the seats with electric ones sourced from a Toyota Land Cruiser.

Overdrive also applied a combination of leather and Alcantara on various parts of the cabin, including the door panels, centre console, and the dashboard. The overhaul transforms the utilitarian cabin of the stock previous-gen Hilux workhorse into something a little more luxurious, finished off with a more ergonomic steering wheel as well.

Keep in mind that this isn’t the first three-axle pick-up truck in the world. That honour goes to the Hilux 6×6 made by Icelandic firm Arctic Trucks, the same company that modified a Toyota Hilux for former Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson and James May for their North Pole escapade.
