In August 2020 the “facelifted” Hilux was introduced in the local market, with this also the introduction of the new flagship Legend grade, while the long-running SRX grade made way for Raider.This change also introduced the premium leisure Legend RS models complete with electric roller-shutter deck lid.

Based on market feedback and customer response Toyota have made some notable specification tweaks to the Hilux range which will be outlined here:

 

Legend Grade Alignment – Double Cab
When introduced last year, the Legend 4×4 Auto models received additional specification features as the flagship of the double-cab range. While all Legend models boasted the same exterior design and visual treatment – only the 4×4 models received the full-house treatment which included a leather interior, JBL premium audio system and Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) active safety system.
For 2021, ALL Legend models (including Raised Body 4×2) now boast the following features:
Power-adjustable driver seat
Leather interior
Toyota Safety Sense (Pre-crash system, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control) Upgrade to dual-zone climate control
Enhanced Smart Entry system
The JBL premium 9-speaker audio system, remains exclusive to 4×4 Legend model

 

 

Legend Grade Alignment – Xtra Cab
Based on customer feedback, the Xtra-cab Legend models’ interior is upgraded to more closely align with that of the Double-cab, with the addition of the following:
 Leather Interior
 Power-adjustable driver seat

 

Raider Spec Additions
The mid-tier Raider models represent sound value, striking a balance between utility, comfort and convenience. For 2021 they now offer even more:
 Change to alloy spare tyre (all variants)
 Height-adjustable driver seat (all variants)
Meter illumination control (all variants)
 60/40 rear split seat (2.4 D/Cab variants only)
Rear Armrest with cup holders (2.4 D/Cab variants only)
 Seat back pockets with shopping hooks (2.4 D/Cab variants only)
Upgrade to dual-zone climate control (2.8 D/Cab variants only)

 

Deletion of Navigation System
Due to the inclusion of Android Auto/Apple CarPlay on all models fitted with an audio system, the on-board satellite navigation previously offered on selected models has been removed in lieu of customers using smartphone apps such as Google Maps, Apple Maps and Waze.

 

New Colour Choices
For the first time on Hilux, customers can opt for a pearl-white finish in the form of Platinum White Pearl. Based on popular demand, a limited run of Sand Beige units will also be produced between October and December 2021. Customers are requested to enquire at their nearest Toyota dealer on the availability of Sand Beige units.
