Toyota Motor PH debuts new Hilux GR-S
The Manila Times
TOYOTA Motor Philippines (TMP) has further beefed up the lineup of the country’s number one pickup with its introduction of the new Hilux GR Sport (GR-S). Taking cues from the Dakar-winning GR Hilux, the new Hilux GR-S now comes with a tougher design through a wide-tread body, matte black GR-S overfenders, 17-inch alloy GR design wheels with all-terrain tires, and the GR Aero sports bar. The new version is also wider by 120 mm and taller by 65 mm. All in all, the exterior features a more rugged look than its predecessor, giving a better impression of its improved generational characteristics of quality, durability and reliability. Under the hood, the new Hilux GR-S is powered by a 2.8L diesel, 4-cylinder, 16-valve DOHC variable nozzle turbo engine with an air-cooled intercooler. It now features an improved maximum output of 224 PS and a maximum torque of 550 Nm. Additionally, it includes GR front and rear disc brakes with GR brake calipers, and monotube shock absorbers. Inside, it is clad in GR-S suede and leather seats with emblem on the leather steering wheel, while the leather door trims with technical mesh and red seat belts. New amenities such as the nineinch display audio with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a wireless charger add spirit to every adventure, while functions such as smart entry and push start system offer convenience in each ride. Available colors are emotional red, super white 2/attitude black mica (two-tone) and attitude black mica. Retail sales started on Sept. 13, 2023.
