Toyota has unveiled the new Hilux Revo pickup truck in Thailand with several exterior and interior updates.

As it appears, the Toyota Hilux Revo has received heavy inspiration from the Japanese brand’s Tacoma pickup truck. The refreshed pickup comes priced from Rs. 13.44 lakh.

It sports a bolder, larger and new chrome garnished hexagonal front grille flanked by sharp headlamps with projector units and integrated LED daytime running lights.
The front bumper has become much more sculpted looking and there are compact and small fog lamps with C shaped chrome trims. The rear of the vehicle doesn’t boast any eye-catching change at all and it runs on new design sporty alloy wheels. There is a Rocco variant of the car on offer as well that gets black sport bar on offer along with black plastic cladding over the wheel arches and rear bumper and Rocco decals at side profiles. Also it comes running on 18-inch wheels wrapped with all-terrain tyres.
Not only exterior, inside the cabin too Toyota Hilux Revo gets several updates. It sports a new multifunction steering wheel, digital MID at instrument cluster, push start button, cooled glovebox, rear AC vents. It gets different driving modes as well.
