A mid-life refresh is due for the eighth-generation Toyota Hilux, according to a report by Thai website headlightmag. The report indicates that Toyota is pushing for a market introduction of a revised Hilux Revo in Thailand as early as next month.

Apparently, the changes will largely be focused on visual enhancements, primarily with an updated face that will bear a greater resemblance to the Tacoma in a bid to give the pick-up a more rugged and muscular appearance. No mechanical changes will reportedly be made – currently, the Hilux is available with a choice of two engines – the 2.8 litre 1GD-FTV and the 2.4 litre 2GD-FTV.

Back home, the Hilux was just recently updated with better kit, although the number of variants have dropped down from eight to six. Prices start from RM87,200 for the Single-Cab 2.4 MT 4×4 to RM130,900 for the Double-Cab 2.8G AT 4×4.
