Gallery: Toyota Hilux L Edition 2.4L at Toyota GAZOO Racing finale, RM119k

At the final leg of the Toyota Gazoo Racing festival, UMW Toyota (UMWT) have on display its latest pickup truck, the Toyota Hilux L-Edition. The model on display is the 2.4-litre AT 4×4 (also available for 2.8-litre AT 4×4), packed with a new exterior kit and added equipment levels.

The L Edition gets a new hexagonal grille with chrome outline and larger air intakes on the front lower bumper as well as silver trimmed rear ornament step to give it a more masculine appearance. It rides on 18-inch five-spoke two-tone alloy wheels. The model on display is also equipped with an optional Thule roof rack.

The cabin sports an all-black theme with the upholstery finished in leather. Equipment list on the 2.4-litre reads 6.1-inch touchscreen DVD player with Bluetooth connectivity, six speakers, manual climate control, USB charging port, push start button, leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel powered driver’s seat and 360-degree camera.

Motivation comes from the same 2.4-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel packing 148 hp and 400 Nm of twisting force. Transmission of choice is a six-speed Super ECT automatic with Sequential Shifter.

Safety kit on the L-Edition is abundant – seven airbags, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Active Traction Control (A-TRC) and Hill-start Assist Control (HAC). However, only the more expensive 2.8-litre gets Downhill Assist Control (DAC) to make driving down a steep slope easier and safer.

Prices for the Toyota Hilux L Edition starts from RM119,300 for the 2.4-litre AT while the 2.8-litre AT retails for RM133,900, both on-the-road without insurance. Like all Toyota models distributed by UMWT, the Hilux L Edition is backed by a 5-Years or 150,000 km manufacturer’s warranty.
