The Toyota HiLux is one of most renowned pickup brands in the world and the upcoming 2015 version has managed to raise quite a few eyeballs so far! Toyota has further announced a Black Edition HiLux to sweeten the deal further!
The Black Edition HiLux is based on the 2015 variant of the vehicle and is powered by a turbocharged diesel engine block, which is the most popular on the HiLux till date. Toyota plans on manufacturing the vehicle in limited quantities and just a thousand units have been manufactured so far. Hence, if you want to be the proud owner of a Black Edition 2015 Toyota HiLux, you need to keep your wallet loaded.
Keeping in mind the high-demand of most Limited Edition variants from Toyota, it is safe to assume that the HiLux will be out of stock soon. This vehicle does not come cheap though and sports a price tag of $53,240 for the manual and $55,990 for the automated transmission versions.
The vehicle comes with standard 17-inch rims with highlighted black trim. The SR5 touchscreen found on the standard edition of the HiLux has been incorporated on this variant, along with satellite navigation and a rear-view camera. This vehicle is value for money even though it is on the higher end of the price bracket.
The SR5 touchscreen is quite popular among the customers and hence it is not surprising that Toyota decided to incorporate the design in the Black Edition as well. In fact, Toyota might even have to consider launching additional units of the Black Edition, based on popular demand, at this rate.
2015 seems to be a pretty good year for all pickup truck enthusiasts with the introduction of the redesigned Chevrolet Colorado, RAM 1500, Ford F-150 and the standard Toyota HiLux, apart from the Black Edition. We haven’t been able to get behind the wheels of any of these work-horses so far. Hence, a comprehensive report isn’t available so far.
