2020 Toyota Hilux Diesel is surely one of the most kept secrets among trucks, especially if we have heard so many rumors about the existence of this model, and none of them has not been confirmed (or denied) yet. However, knowing Toyota’s habits and plans, we cannot forget how much they love consistency and tradition, so their models usually undergo new versions every year.
The manufacturer has not said anything about possible changes in the exterior design of 2020 Toyota Hilux Diesel, and since they are barely confirmed its existence, they will not say anything before releasing or at least first test driving. However, we have reasons to believe that they will change spoiler in order to provide off-road safety driving, and they will surely slightly change gridded grille, front lights, and taillights. The shape and design of the truck should not be different from the last model. Main competitor is Ford Ranger.
There is no clear description of the 2020 Toyota Hilux Diesel interior since the manufacturer has not finalized and obviously defined all equipment and design of it. However, we always predict the highest equipment in class and surely large and comfy cabin with quality materials used there. If we remember how the old versions of these models looked like, we are sure that design of the new version will be at least the same attractive and modern. There should be found the same wide and flat dashboard again, with wide chrome lines and large steering wheel, just beside the large center cluster with an 8-inch touchscreen in the middle of it. Toyota will surely improve its safety program, as they always do in large trucks.
2020 Toyota Hilux Diesel offers more than one engine options, which is usual for Toyota trucks. Besides the base petrol unit which is average but strong 2.7-liter petrol unit, there are two diesel engines which are very attractive and strong. The first model is a 2.8-liter diesel unit with 177 horsepower and 334 pound-feet of torque. The second one is 2.4-liter diesel unit with 163 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. Both should be paired with the six-speed automatic transmission, as well as other engines that come with this truck. Looks like Nissan Navara has better engine.
2020 Toyota Hilux Diesel Release Date and Price
Since the standard model of 2020 Toyota Hilux Diesel costs around $24,000 it is expected that diesel version could be slightly more expensive, but still very favorable for the average buyer. The model should be on the market by the end of the year or at beginning of the next year. Even though the new model is almost there, the manufacturer has not said much about it, so all we had by now are predictions and rumors.
