The Toyota Hilux Dakar is now officially listed on Toyota South Africa’s web page, which means we finally know what it costs.
The Dakar specification is limited to the top-of-the-line 2.8-litre GD-6 turbocharged four-cylinder diesel and 4.0-litre V6 petrol. The petrol Dakar is only available as a 4×4, but the diesel is available in both 4×2 and 4×4.
The specific pricing for the various models is as follows:
Toyota Hilux 2,8 GD-6 RB Dakar: R535 000
Toyota Hilux 2,8 GD-6 RB Dakar AT: R553 400
Toyota Hilux 2,8 GD-6 4×4 Dakar: R601 100
Toyota Hilux 2,8 GD-6 4×4 Dakar AT: R621 000
Toyota Hilux 4,0 V6 4×4 Dakar AT: R662 700
That’s R19 000 more than the standard car. What do you get for the extra cash? Well, quite a lot actually.The most obvious difference is the grille, Dakar decals on the exterior, partial leather seats, a touch-screen navigation system and gloss black inserts on the exterior door handles and mirrors.
