Toyota Hilux 2,5 D-4D Double Cab

When CAR magazine the Fortuner equipped with the 2,5-litre D-4D powerplant in April 2012, we were impressed. The engine, featuring nozzle turbo technology and direct injection, delivers 106 kW and 343 N.m – 14 kW less than the highly 3,0-litre D-4D and an identical figure. For obvious reasons, we started wondering when engine would make its in the Hilux, which until had to make do with the outpunched 75 kW

In the end, the wait was longer expected – Toyota only the engine into the Hilux in last year – and it is only in the Double Cab Raider (Raised 4×2 model. The 75 kW engine continues to do in a number of other Hilux

Specification level

The cabins of the Hiluxs are still competitive the more modern bakkies on the especially after the 2011 The centre console is dominated by touch-screen infotainment system USB, BlueTooth) which the ambience to such an extent it is easy to forget that Hilux made its debut in Africa as far back as 2005. The real drawback remains the adjustability of the steering wheel. I cloth upholstery to leather, so the cloth featured on this is attractive to me.

When Toyota this engine to the Hilux it also tweaked the specification by electrically retractable side and manual headlamp levelling. It is to note that although is no 4×4 model on offer with engine, this Raised 4×2 model does feature a and 227 mm of ground clearance.


Toyota places great on this engine’s ability to hard from low revs. when we tested the Fortuner this engine we found owners were unlikely to (or even notice) the power compared with the 3,0-litre during normal, day-to-day In terms of sprinting ability it was to a Fortuner 3,0 D-4D. We concluded you may notice the lower output at overtaking speeds and during

However, surprisingly perhaps, I the Hilux somewhat different. was significant lag below 2 000 r/min, in some stumbling when away from traffic The Hilux uses the same ratios as the Fortuner and the wheel are identical, too, so these not be the reasons. The off-the-line lethargy a while to get used to, but by the end of my short term I had adjusted my driving to compensate. Admittedly I did test the at altitude so a direct comparison is not According to technical editor Louw, the noticeable turbo lag may be to the lower atmospheric pressure to off with at altitude (when full boost). The engine is to a five-speed manual transmission a very precise, mechanical action.

Once you’ve overcome the the engine is a real peach superb refinement. Of course, the big compared with the 3,0-litre is economy. Toyota claims a cycle consumption figure of 8,7 km.

As we found during our recent shootout with Hannes the Hilux remains the firmest of the bakkies on the market. This is no different, but the upshot is that it give the vehicle a feeling of I did not get the opportunity to test the Hilux on during my short stay in so can’t comment on its abilities but it is worth noting that a safety point of view, it ABS, a load-sensing braking and six airbags. There is no electronic system (ESP). Considering the sheer size, I must say I rear park sensors on the specification sheet.

This model sells for a R365 500 and comes backed a five-years/90 000 km service plan. service intervals are set at 10 000 km. With the of this engine and in this the Hilux now has a much stronger against such rivals as the Navara 2,5 dCi, Ford BT-50 2,2-litre and Volkswagen Considering its all-round quality, powerplant and comprehensive specification, it can serve to further add to the Hilux’s market-leading monthly sales
