Indus Motors Company (IMC) all geared up to launch the new Toyota Hilux Revo very soon. The new Toyota Hilux Revo is going to be a replacement to the much loved Toyota Vigo Champ. 8th generation Hilux Revo was officially launched in May 2015 and is already available for sale in Bangkok, Thailand and Australia. Teaser images are being posted on Toyota Pakistan’s Official Page. According to undisclosed sources, Toyota Hilux Revo is expected to hit showrooms across Pakistan by the last quarter this year.
The New Toyota Hilux Revo looks very similar to the 11th generation Toyota Corolla (E170). Revo uses the Toyota’s “Keen look” design language and has slim projector headlights like the Toyota Corolla. The expected price of new Hilux Revo in Pakistan is between 3.5 and 4.5 million PKR. IMC will most likely launch the car with a 2.8-litre diesel engine or a 2.7-litre Petrol. The Toyota Hilux Vigo Champ came with 2.4 Litre engine with VVT-i and cost between 3.1 and 4.0 million PKR.
Internationally, the 2.0, 2.7, and 4.0 litre petrol engines from the previous generations’ Hilux are reused with an upgraded Dual VVT-i to increase power and torque of the engine. In International market, the new Toyota Hilux Revo is being launched with the new ESTEC GD 2.4 Litre, 2.8 Litre engines attached with 6-speed automatic or manual transmissions. Other prominent features of the new Hilux Revo include Toyota’s autonomous emergency braking (AEB), Hill Assist Control, Downhill Assist Control, Traction Control, Vehicle Stability Control, Brake Assist, Trailer Sway Control, 7 Airbags (dual front airbags, chest airbags, curtain airbags and driver knee airbag) and a lot more.
