The Toyota Hilux pickup for Europe is imported from Thailand as before.

Manufactured at two of Toyota’s plants in Thailand, the Hilux truck is exported to over 130 countries, of which Australia, New Zealand, South America, the Middle East, and the UK are larger importers. Exports from the Asian nation began during the turn of the second quarter of the last fiscal year.

The 2016 Toyota Hilux is manufactured with three engine choices comprising of one petrol engine and two diesel mills. The 2.7-litre 4-cylinder VVT-i petrol motor that produces 122 hp maximum power and 245 Nm peak torque, is the same as the one featured in the previous iteration of the pickup.

The new Hilux benefits form a 10 percent improvement in fuel economy, courtesy of the brand new diesel engines.

In France, the only engine offered is the four-cylinder 2.4-liter ‘GD’ diesel that generates 150 hp and 400 Nm. It is mated to a either a 6-speed manual transmission or to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The new engines are claimed to have achieved a 10 percent hike in mileage as compared to the motors they have replaced.
