Leaked photos have recently been posted on Instagram, showing the upcoming 2021 Toyota Hilux pickup, but our ArabGT team is not sure about the authenticity of these images.
To be more clear, these photos were published by Kurdistan_automotive_blog account on Instagram, and they are supposed to be leaked images of the Japanese 2021 Toyota Hilux pick-up truck, but are these images really leaked or are they just imaginative digital renders? We have to wait until the official Hilux photos are released to know for sure!
As a reminder, we would like at the beginning to remind you that the last time we talked about Hilux pickup was when we introduced a modification kit provided by Wald International for this truck – and with these modifications, the truck was called Black Bison Edition. But today we are showing you pictures that may be of the 2021 Toyota Hilux pickup.
Here are the photos posted on Instagram:
If the images are for the 2021 Hilux for real, we can notice that the exterior of Toyota’s pickup was changed drastically, with new headlamps that look inspired by Toyota Tacoma pickup. The vehicle also got LED front and backlights, and we note adding black accents and chrome on the outside, specifically on the front.
In addition, Hilux will be provided with new 17 and 18-inch aluminum rims, and according to what we can see in these images, the updated Toyota Hilux pickup vehicle will be available in three new color options including; red, blue, and bronze.
The 2021 Toyota Hilux is expected to be powered by a turbocharged 2.8-liter diesel engine generating 174 hp and 450 Nm of torque and is connected to an automatic transmission. If connected to a manual gearbox, the torque drops to 420 Nm.
The top-performance Toyota GR version is expected to receive a turbocharged V6 diesel
