A Hilux with more flavour

The need for owners to individualise their wheels and chase the dream of that ultimate vehicle motivates constant innovation and new product development. And well, manufacturers are not shying away from the challenge.

The Hilux GR-S presents a bold face of masculinity and conquering power. It is irresistible for those with an adventurous spirit or in need of a stylish workhorse.

The front end is dominated by a large grille, headlight design and powerful and aggressive bumper layout.

The interior with its red decals and redesigned instrument cluster is invigorating and emotionally pleasing.

The suspension has been designed to improve high-speed stability on tar as well as gravel and the larger tyre profiles will enhance the driving experience.

The engine room

Power output has been increased to 165kW and 550Nm and it is linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission, rendering the GR-S capable of achieving 175km/h at the top end.


The familiar touchscreen infotainment system is retained which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, along with steering wheel switch integration, Bluetooth and USB inputs.

The Hilux GR-S is equipped with Toyota Safety Sense (TSS), which offers a full suite of active safety aids including adaptive cruise control, lane departure alert (LDA) and pre-collision system (PCS). These are joined by the obligatory ABS, VSC, EBD, hill assist control (HAC) and brake assist systems, as well as passive safety aids such as ISOFIX and a full airbag array.
