TOYOTA Kirloskar Motor (TKM) has officially announced a temporary closure of bookings for the Hilux. The company has stated that the decision has been taken due to the high demand and various factors impacting the supply at the same time.

The India-spec Toyota Hilux was unveiled last month, ahead of its launch that is scheduled to take place in March 2022, with deliveries set to begin soon after. The model will be powered by a 2.8-litre diesel motor paired to a six-speed manual unit and a six-speed torque converter automatic unit. The engine produces a power output of 201bhp and 420Nm (500Nm for AT). The model will rival the likes of the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross.

In terms of design, the new Toyota Hilux will feature LED projector headlamps, fog lights with black surrounds, chrome surround for the grille, 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, chrome insert for the ORVMs, LED tail lights, and a dual-tone bumper.
