Toyota facelifts Hilux Revo pickup for 2018

Brand’s bread-winning workhorse gets a more aggressive-looking face and a new style-led model called Rocco to rival the Ford Ranger Wildtrak and Isuzu D-Max X-Series.

Toyota Motor Thailand has released the first pictures and details of the facelifted Hilux Revo ahead of its public debut at the year-ending 2017 Motor Expo.

Featuring in the single- and double-cab models is a new face with a prominent grille to bring the Hilux Revo in line with the US-only Tacoma pickup. The meek looks of the pre-facelift Hilux Revo is alleged to have received a tepid reception from the pickup market.

And for the first time, Toyota has introduced a new style-led range-topper called Rocco to rival the Ford Ranger Wildtrak and Isuzu D-Max X-Series. 

Available for both single- and double-cab variants, the Rocco features an even sportier grille with plenty of black accents around the vehicle. Other key exterior features are 18-inch alloys shod with 265/60 R18 all-terrain tyres and a sports bar in the cargo bed. The interior also gets the black colour treatment along with leather appointments here and there.

The 150hp 2.4-litre and 177hp 2.8-litre diesel-turbo engines, plus 166hp 2.7-litre petrol unit, remain unchanged. The same goes for the six-speed manual and automatic transmission.

As for the Rocco, only the 2.8-litre diesel is available either with manual or automatic and 2WD or 4WD. Depending on body style and transmission, the Rocco is priced between 1.129-1.199 million baht. While the regular single-cab sees prices starting from 572,000 baht, the double-cab kicks out at 672,000 baht.
