Toyota offers a famous robust Hilux pickup. It has competed in the Dakar Rally many times over the decades. In fact, the street truck and the race truck have normally stayed on the opposite ends of the same spectrum. However, their paths have crossed with the launch of the Hilux GR Sport.

Toyota Hilux – Suspension System

The Toyota Hilux is not exactly an alternative to the Ford Ranger Raptor which is selling overseas. However, the latest addition to the Japanese company’s truck ranger is a step in the right direction. However, it does stand out from other members of the Hilux range with a particular suspension system.

It does include monotube shock absorbers and firmer front springs. Toyota is saying that the GR Sport does handle and also steer better than the standard Hilux.

The differentiation between the GR Sport and the Hilux is the updated suspension components. They are painting red. Also, car-spotters will also notice a black grille with a new-look mesh insert and “TOYOTA” lettering. Plus, black exterior trim, specific emblems, and 17-inch wheels. Inside the vehicle are front passengers which sit on nicely-bolstered sport seats upholstered in a combination of leather and synthetic suede. The Toyota does add shift paddles as well as aluminum pedal caps. Moreover, red stitching and carbon fiber-look trim pieces do add a finishing touch to the rally-inspired design.

The power comes from a 2.8-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder engine which is rating at 204 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. It is an engine that was adding to the lineup in 2020. There are permanent four-wheel-drive which comes standards. However, Toyota did not mention if the GR Sport is going to be exclusive to be offering a six-speed automatic or if a six-speed stick is going to be available as well.

In the Summer of 2022, Toyota dealers across Europe are going to be receiving the Hilux GR Sport. There is pricing information that has not been announcing yet. Moreover, it will likely vary from country to country.
