New Toyota Hilux & Proace to debut at CV Show 2016

Toyota Hilux 2015Toyota GB has confirmed to VansA2Z that it will be featuring the all-new Hilux pick-up and Proace small panel van on it’s stand at the Commercial Vehicle Show (NEC, Birmingham) in April (26 – 28). Already on sale in Thailand and Australia this will be the UK premiere of the new pick-up range.

Unveiled at simultaneous events in Bangkok and Sidney back in June (2015), the eighth generation Hilux is new from the ground-up. As yet there is no information of UK specifications, but we do know there’s a choice of two potential engines; a 160hp 2.4-litre which develops 400Nm of peak torque and a 178hp Cummins 2.8-litre unit — the same one that's going into the soon to be launched revised Land Cruiser — developing 450Nm between 1,600rpm and 2,400rpm.

We would not be surprised in the slightest if Hilux made its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show, alongside the Proace. The result of a joint-development deal with PSA Peugeot Citro├źn (Expert/Dispatch), there are scant details of the all-new LCVs, pictures have been released of the passenger-carrying models. All three variants will be built in northern France at PSA’s Sevel Nord plant and will feature Euro 6 diesel powertrains from the French manufacturer.
