When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota Hilux Hybrid, we can say that you should not expect any significant changes because it will keep most of the regular Hilux features. Perhaps, there is no need of further changes and improvements, since the Hilux itself has a unique and classy style, recognizable to its fans. With its stable and powerful look and its enhanced aerodynamics, the new Hilux Hybrid promises excellent performance. It will be longer and taller than its predecessor which will allow more space inside the cabin. Although this model will be larger in dimensions, it will use the lightweight materials in its chassis construction, so it will reduce the weight. The reduced weight like this benefits the productivity of this model as well as it fuel consumption. You will notice plenty of chrome and aluminum being used together with silver details. Distinctive exterior features that you will notice include a large chrome grille, new set of LED headlights, fog lights and taillights, and of course, more cargo space due to a bigger bed.
The interior features of the 2019 Toyota Hilux Hybrid will be significantly upgraded and follow the trends of the next-generation pickup trucks. The seats will hopefully be comfortable, supportive, adjustable, and covered in leather and other high-quality materials. This will also depend on the trim you choose. Also, due to its larger exterior dimensions, such as length and height, the new Hilux Hybrid will provide more legroom and headroom inside its cabin. You will also get a multi-functional steering wheel and a modern dashboard with numerous hi-tech options. It will get a TFT monitor with GPS system and important data, but we hope for another touch screen with the latest infotainment and entertainment system. The truck will also have to include the expected safety and driver assist features.
It has not been confirmed yet what the 2019 Toyota Hilux Hybrid will get under its hood and there may be more than one option. However, we have been informed that it will come with a 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine and two electric motors. The total output has still been unknown, but it should be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The rumor has it that another engine option may include a 2.7-liter I-4 with 182 horsepower and the choice between a five-speed manual and automatic transmission. Surely, we will have to wait a bit and see.
