SAC offers five engine mapping options for buyers of the Revolution chip option: Anti-Theft, Stock, Off-Road, Fuel Economy, and High Power.

With the upgrade, the Toyota Hilux 2.4 GD’s stock output of 110kW/400Nm has been bumped to 135kW /480Nm, while the more powerful 2.8 GD’s output goes from 130 kW/450 Nm in two stages: 145 kW/505 Nm with an entry level chip and 170 kW/575 Nm with the advanced Revolution chip option.

Along with the power upgrade, SAC offers five engine mapping options for buyers of the Revolution chip option: Anti-Theft, Stock, Off-Road, Fuel Economy, and High Power. The Anti-Theft option will not let the Hilux fire up the motor, Stock option will (as the name suggests) retains the stock output of the engine, Off-Road option that refines low-end response, Fuel Economy option will maximize the engine’s fuel efficiency and High Power option bumps the power output.
