Features a beefed up TRD body kit.
A new Toyota Hilux Revo TRD concept is being showcased at the 2015 Thailand Motor Expo. It uses low profile tyres and has a considerably different styling than offered by the TRD body kits optional on the Hilux Revo.
The Hilux Revo TRD concept is a double-cab model with a new split grille, different bumper cutouts, quad-LED fog lamps, six-spoke black alloy wheels with low-profile Pirelli Scorpion Zero tyres, body coloured side skirts and rear bumper extension, roof spoiler, black scuff plates, black ORVM enclosures and plastic loading area cap. There appears to be no change in the powertrain or the suspension. Toyota is believed to be displaying the concept to garner feedback from visitors for commercializing a more aggressive TRD kit.
Select variants of the Toyota Hilux Revo in Thailand are offered with pre-installed TRD accessories (unrelated to the concept) for free until December 31. The TRD kit applied on the pickup is worth THB 48,900 (INR 90,420). The kit includes a sporty centre grille and bumper airdam grille that are finished in black, wheel arch claddings, a TRD branded sports-type bar, and side steps. There is no change in the mechanicals of the pickup.
