UMW Toyota Motor recently launched the Toyota Hilux L-Edition (‘L’ refers to luxury), marking the arrival of the facelifted pick-up truck in Malaysia. We now bring you a full gallery of the L-Edition in 2.4L AT 4×4 guise, which is one of two offered – the other being the 2.8L AT 4×4.

As mentioned at the start, the L-Edition models are based on the refreshed Hilux, and therefore sport a Tacoma-inspired face. Highlights include a large hexagonal grille as well as a redesigned bumper. The latter features an upturned centre air intake and new fog light enclosures.

Model-specific items include two-tone 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels (with 265/65 profile tyres), a chrome and black finish for the front grille, piano black trim instead of silver units, plus perforated leather seats.

The 2.4L AT 4×4 L-Edition comes equipped with halogen headlamps (with bulb-type DRLs), a manual air-conditioning system, multi-info instrument cluster display, smart entry and start, regular head unit, eight-way powered driver seat, seven airbags, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), reverse sensor and ABS with EBD plus brake assist.

These items are largely similar to those found on the pre-facelift Hilux 2.4L AT 4×4, including what’s under the hood. There, you’ll find a 2GD-FTV 2.4 litre turbodiesel with 150 PS and 400 Nm of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Also part of the powertrain is Active Traction Control (A-TRC) and a four-wheel drive system with on-the-fly switching and a rear differential lock.

In terms of pricing, the L-Edition 2.4L AT 4×4 goes for RM119,300 (OTR without insurance), while the 2.8L AT 4×4 retails at RM133,900. Each purchase includes a five-year/150,000 km warranty, along with a choice of seven colours. Check out CarBase.my for detailed specifications of the new Toyota Hilux L-Edition models.
