In my opinion, the Hilux is way overpriced.

The new Hilux comes with the 1gd engine which is a 2.8 TD. This engine is probably about 5 years old and in the country about 3 years (thru the grey market) and about 2 years (thru TTTL).

The old Hilux was the 1kd engine which is a 3.0TD. That engine is a proven beast! A remarkable work horse and power plant.

I believe that the chassis for the new Hilux is the same as the old one; can't speak for the suspension as I am not sure if it's improved.

Engine wise, I do not know how the new 1gd is faring. Only time will tell. Fwiw, the diesel quality since petrotrin closed down supposed to be a better quality so that would be good news for diesel engines. The old 1kd is a proven engine.

Other tuners would chime in and it'd be nice to hear from an actual owner (I am not an owner of the new Hilux but have a 1kd fortuner which is basically a glorified Hilux).

If is to buy and keep for 5 years, no

Of is to buy and keep for longer, maybe

Some of the revo get brake drum issues, toyota replaced a lot under warranty.
Manual ones are known to wear clutches fast.
But no major issues with them.

I would suggest leaving a new one under warranty fornat least 3 years to 50,000kms in case any issues pop up

And most importantly, dont interfere with the ppl van. Leave it just so and drive it.
Diesel, oil, brakes pads and a occassional drive train fluid change.

No

They actually worst off

Toyota actually made limited editiin bonnet scoops for those and they carry a different driveshaft too

Special parts that nowhere else in the world got

Okay I got the New Hilux a few months ago. 2.8L 1GD-FTV. I am coming from a 2011 3.0L.
The difference immediately felt was the quietness of the engine and difference in power. The 2.8L under the “Normal Mode” is very responsive. Using the “Power Mode” is good for spirited driving but again we are limited to 100km/hr with heavy traffic.
ECO MODE
The new transmission ECO mode is good for traffic but terrible for highway runs. Basically, a choke on fuel and lower RPM, I get the felling the engine is in 2 minds whether to stay in one gear or change to another.


Previous hilux was sold with about 245,000 km and Fuel range was 700km/per tank.
Getting a range of 750-780/per tank. I usually refill with my 7day weekly cycle about 650-700 km per week. Live South and work North commute.

Suspension is lot softer but not as soft as the Nissan Frontier – Coil Suspension.
The new transmission and engine in the 2.8L is more powerful and takes some getting use too coming from the 3.0L.

Doing 9000 km since July to present will service with the firm for a bit just in case some issues pop up in the first year.
I did carry my Schaeffer’s Oil 15/40 fully synthetic for my service. Been using that in my previously Hilux for 7 years.

Basically same ground clearance and driving visibility. Biggest change is a difference in engine and transmission.

Spoke to some people who had/have the vehicle with both 1kd and 1gd....one guy(a mechanic) says the 1KD is similar to that of the QD32(iron donkey), yuh could run that sheit to the ground and it still going, while the 1GD like a ZD30(which from my experience is a problem engine)....that was his best way of explaining it...shrugs shoulders....
