2015 Toyota HiLux Black Edition Spotted Testing on the Streets of Australia, Prices and Release Date Rumored, More Details

The 2015 Toyota HiLux is pretty close to being released, but the irony about the situation is that, the limited Black Edition, which was showcased at the Bangkok Motor Show on March 25th, will be available only in white when it arrives at a showroom near you! As reported by a reputed auto magazine a few months back, Toyota plans to launch just 1,000 units of the Black Edition HiLux.

Toyota is yet to come up with the official volume figures that are to reach individual markets, but judging by the current state of affairs, 1,000 units are unlikely to last for more than a few minutes! Hence, if you are looking for a Limited Edition HiLux in your garage, you better keep your wallet stocked and stay prepared to loosen the strings at a moment’s notice.

The 2015 Toyota HiLux Black Edition was last seen testing on Australian soil, which puts us under the impression that the vehicle will be introduced in the local markets first. People who have witnessed the prototypes testing on the streets have already started inquiring about the price and availability of the ‘handsome pickup truck.’

The 2015 Toyota HiLux should be no different from the pickup that released back in 2004, in terms of reliability, quality, functionality and purpose. The difference lay, however, on efficiency, performance and practicality. The upcoming Toyota HiLux is slated to be more fuel efficient than the previous model and is more stylish on the exterior too!

In terms of physical appearance, the upcoming HiLux is miles ahead of what the original pickup resembled. The designers at Toyota have spent a considerable amount of time in improving the visual esthetics of the vehicle, which plays a major role in driving sales. Some of the visual enhancements include LED DRL and sleeker headlamps.

While the officials are yet to come up with the actual date of release, experts believe that Toyota will launch the vehicle towards the first half of the year, in accordance with their tradition of launching new vehicles in the first quarter of the fiscal year. However, the situation could be a little different now, due to the numerous complications involved in designing the vehicle.
