The all-new 2016 Toyota Hilux pickup truck is indeed very important. Not only the new-gen Hilux will boost the sales and appeal of this incredibly popular pickup truck, but it will also bring in the next generation model of the bestselling Toyota Fortuner premium Sports Utility Vehicle. The 2016 Toyota Hilux pickup truck was recently spotted testing in Argentina by an ardent reader of an auto portal revealing its face.
The current gen Toyota Hilux pickup and the Fortuner SUV share the same front fascia till the B-Pillar, and the same design arrangement is expected to be kept for the upcoming next-gen models as well. Thus, as the Hilux’s front fascia gets revealed in these spy shots, we get to know about the all new Fortuner’s face as well. The spied Hilux’s test prototype model is shown to reveal the couple’s facade that is seen flaunting new styling elements but does retain the overall design. The next generation Toyota Fortuner’s rendered image is also doing the rounds of the internet now, which was made taking a cue from the new spy shots of the all new Hilux’s prototype showing off a part of the frontal looks.
The all new Hilux also gets a redesigned front grille which sports two very profound horizontal slats now shown in their plain form, but will most likely get a good doze of chrome finish. The spy shots also reveal the headlights of the vehicle that have now become more angular and sharper than before. The new Hilux pickup’s secondary air-dam and the fog light enclosures also seem to be mounted in a higher position on the front bumper. A roofline of the vehicle also gets a subtly redesign in order to make the design overhaul more complete. These are about the most part of the new front fascia design change in the upcoming all new 2016 Toyota Fortuner as well as the Hilux.
The side profiles are expected to get some subtle changes as well, while the incorporation of new alloy wheels is highly expected. The rear design of the all new Hilux and Fortuner are also supposed to be more attractive than ever before, as the company is aiming at a more engaging design for all its new vehicles.
Owing to the high customer preference, the new Hilux and Fortuner will retain their ladder-frame chassis rather than going for a monocoque chassis, to maintain the rugged visual appeal. More enhanced versions of the ongoing powertrains are expected to power both the new vehicles.
The next-gen Toyota Fortuner is expected to launch in India in 2016, but in the meantime Toyota India is expected to keep the consumers excited by launching new variants of the segment leader. A new base model trim for the Fortuner powered by the Innova’s 2.5 liter engine, and a new top-end trim with the powerful 3 liter mill are expected to launch in India before the next-gen model comes to picture.
