Toyota offers Hilux TRD package in Oz
Toyota has made a Toyota Racing Development (TRD) accessories pack option available for its Hilux bakkie in Australia.
The Hilux with TRD package includes a red ‘TRD’ front skid plate, TRD front bumper, black TRD grille, and TRD wheel arch flares up front, black sports bar, black body mouldings on the front and sides, tow kit, tail-light covers, TRD mudflaps and a soft tonneau cover.
Based on Australia’s top-spec SR5 double cab variant, – a 2.8-litre turbodiesel model (while SA’s range-topper carries a 4.0-litre V6 petrol engine) – it’s available with either a black or white paint job and comes with black 18-inch inch six-spoke alloy wheels.
The TRD accessories pack is all about looks, as there have been no modifications to the Hilux’s engine.
According to CARmag.co.za, when it asked Toyota South Africa Motors whether local Hilux fans could expect something similar in the near future, a senior communications executive replied “not now, but we do have plans in the pipeline”.
