Toyota unleashes the all-new Hilux GR-S III in South Africa

Legendary Toyota Hilux gets faster, and more powerful and rugged.

The iconic Toyota Hilux reaches new heights of performance with the launch of the Hilux GR-S III in South Africa. Building on its Dakar Rally pedigree, the GR-S III takes Toyota’s pioneering bakkie to new levels, combining legendary durability with exhilarating performance and a head-turning design.

Enhanced performance and handling

The Hilux GR-S III boasts a wider track for improved stability and confidence on any terrain. The powerful 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine delivers 165kW and 550Nm of torque, paired with a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. The suspension and brakes have been specifically tuned for a more engaging driving experience without compromising comfort.

Unmistakably bold design

The Hilux GR-S III stands out from the crowd with its imposing stance and aggressive design cues. Black over-fenders, 17-inch black alloy wheels with red brake calipers, and a black mesh front grille create a powerful first impression.

Premium interior with sporty touches

The GR-S III’s cabin is a fusion of luxury and sportiness. A black and red colour scheme, perforated leather sports seats with silver stitching, and a GR-branded instrument cluster, elevate the interior. A JBL sound system keeps you entertained on every journey.

Unmatched off-road capability
