Driving during the coldest season of the year has never been more pleasing than now thanks to the new top-of-the-range Hilux Invincible X! Undoubtedly, severe weather conditions require better equipment and ask for special measures to be taken into consideration. With Toyota's super-tough pick-up things become easier.
Available in Double Cab version, 2015 Toyota Hilux Invincible X is powered by a 3.0-litre D-4D diesel engine which delivers 169 bhp. The power unit is mated to either five-speed manual or automatic transmission. Thanks to the permanent four-wheel drive and an auto-disconnecting differential, the Hilux Invincible X can conquer the toughest possible terrains. What is more, this newcomer is said to be "tough enough to take on the worst of Britain's rain, snow and ice."
On the visual side, the Invincible X benefits from 17-inch alloy wheels in four different designs. Customers can choose from: the standard Invincible rim and a new Rica five-spoke in all-black or two-tone black/machined or black/graphite finish. Part of the package are chrome tubular side bars too, offered with or without step grips, depending on the buyer's preferences. Yet, customers can opt for a rear hi-over bar, or they can select the Style Pack variant. The latter includes a front guard, silver-coloured under-run, aluminium-finish scuff plates, chrome door handles and chrome surrounds for the bonnet air intake and rear lamp clusters.
Inside the cabin there are four colour-versions for the leather seat upholstery: the standard Invincible black, or custom two-tone black with contrasting seatback and cushion inserts in grey, saddle tan or deep red. Equipment features include: sports front seats, climate control, cruise control, dusk-sensing headlights, curtain airbags plus a whole lot of goodies and gadgets like a rear privacy glass, headlamp cleaners, a rear-view camera and the Toyota Touch 2 touchscreen-controlled multimedia system, plus Bluetooth.
Orders can now be placed and Toyota is demanding £23,842 ($36,658/€32,089) for the manual model and £24,842 ($38,192/€33,435) for the automatic variant.
