According to my friend, it's too hush internally also and not much information is available. I doubt if a launch can happen without the senior staff knowing about it unless it's a CBU to start with. He works in the paint department and no work related to Hilux is happening currently.

Like I mentioned in my post, ever since the start of the pandemic, Toyota India has become very hushed about new products they are going to launch.

IMHO, if no work has started as of yet, then it means it’s going to be a CBU for sure. Otherwise at least some parts, components or assembly line modification would have been carried out to accommodate the Hilux, if they were to assemble cars and launch by Jan End.

And my price estimate is roughly between 30 and 40 Lakh OTR. Sales at this price range are going to very limited, but being a CBU if Toyota prices it over the Fortuner then there is absolutely no reason to even consider the Hilux, unless someone is crazy about it’s legacy.

Not to mention Isuzu (Pune) doesn’t seem interested in selling their products.
Had called them a while back on when the new V-Cross would be available for a test drive.
They reverted a couple of months later, calling me during working hours, and never called back when I asked them to contact me after work.

Thanks for sharing the photos.

Missing rear fog lamp in the tail-light cluster seems odd!

Saw the Hilux at Cybercity Gurgaon a while back.

Seems like the commercial shoot is under progress, which also means that the launch should happen soon.

That seems to be almost production ready. Very good scoop.

A global Toyota product finally coming to India after a long time! Hope they get the pricing spot on.

Great catch

Cool Atlast a proper Toyota launch after many years. Looks like it is the worst case scenario I mentioned a few pages before.

Off topic. What is it with the early ML class being the favourite camera car??? Read that the ML63 AMG was a favourite for shooting chase scenes and all, but shooting in India, they are still using an ML? Or part of the camera crew package?

Hello all,

Just came across the truck in NCR.
Guess Toyota is doing some kind of launch event. Good if the truck finally sees Indian roads.

Staff requested not to take pics.

I am also at Le Meridian, Gurgaon for a different engagement and they aren’t letting anyone click photos. How did you manage?

But the truck looks brilliant, I really liked the Toyota Tacoma style front end.

I feel rather than Toyota India offering such gaudy chrome kits / body claddings as accessories on the Hilux, they should offer the real Hilux-worthy accessories like available in the Australian market!

I am just glad Toyota is finally getting a "Toyota" product to India. Vehicles such as this, the RAV4 can carve out a nice niche for themselves, considering how much the Innova sells even though it is an expensive machine.
Interestingly, if you run the registration number, portals say its registered as a Fortuner.

Hilux front fascia and body lines look so much more like current gen 2/3rd-Innova crysta ! Except for its large wheel arches, wheels and its rear end.

Wishing that it could replicate the success of Isuzu v-cross and really uplift the lifestyle vehicle category in India.

Hello all,

As the staff at the event was not supportive in letting anyone click pictures, could only get the following images. Some angles and image quality might not be up to the mark, apologies in advance.
