The new Toyota Hilux 2.8 “Black Edition” has been launched by UMW Toyota Motor to replace the 2.8 L-Edition with visual enhancements for a more dramatic exterior.
As the name suggests, the “Black Edition” gets glossy black finishing on the door handles, fog lamp covers, wing mirror and more noticeably on the 18-inch alloy wheels. These are contrasted by bumper guards and a front grille surround now in Dark Grey rather than in chrome before.
Inside, the Piano Black trims and combination leather upholstery continues with the addition of a new 6.75-inch infotainment system (up-sized from 6.1-inch) with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
No changes were made to the 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine and 6-speed automatic transmission with 177 hp and 450 Nm.
The new Hilux 2.8 “Black Edition” retails at RM139,888 on-the-road without insurance. Optional extras for the top of the range model includes features like a Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
