Because it is a derivative of the Fortuner, the Toyota Hilux has entered the niche segment to fight the Isuzu V-Cross and is gaining popularity. The Toyota Hilux has been reimagined as a 6×6 widebody lowrider design. For a long time, the Issue V-Cross dominated the lifestyle off-roading pickup truck industry. Finally, it faces competition in the introduction of the Toyota Hilux, a derivative of the popular Fortuner. It has only recently entered the Indian market, but digital automotive designers have already begun inventing creative models.
Zephyr Designz came up with the idea for this design. The pickup truck’s overall shape is unchanged from the original model, but the entire ride height has been dropped to that of a race car. The front fascia features a low-slung bumper and splitter with a tonne of dedicated aerodynamics kit, the headlamp cluster has been slightly altered to look sharper, and the side body panels are crease-free. To make the truck longer, the back part has been enlarged. Wide wheel arches substantially alter the flanks of this widebody design.
The truck’s low-profile wide tyres give it an adventurous look, and the golden colour complements the matte black finish nicely. The addition of two wheels to make it a 6×6 off-roader is the most intriguing part of the side profile. The golden rim bolts contrast nicely with the black alloy wheels. To improve the driving dynamics, the side body panels are also near to the ground.
The Hilux is equipped with the same diesel engine as the Fortuner. This is the 2.7-litre mill, which produces 201 horsepower and 420 Nm of peak torque (500 Nm with automatic transmission). This engine could be paired with a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. The Hilux comes standard with four-wheel drive on all models. Unlike the Fortuner, there is no petrol engine. Ex-showroom, the Hilux starts at Rs 33.99 lakh and goes all the way up to Rs 36.80 lakh. Let us know what you think of the Toyota Hilux 666 widebody idea.
