Compared to the model revealed by the brand’s Thai division, the Japanese-spec Toyota Hilux GR Sport is rather subtle on the looks with it just getting a mildly revised front bumper contrasted by a black grille, anti-scuff plate and foglamp surrounds.
Additional highlights include bespoke black 18-inch alloy wheels, a pair of dual-beam LED headlamp clusters and black finishing for the rear bumper and door mirror covers. Giving it a more purposeful stance are the widened wheel arches sourced from the Legend trim. This expands the body’s width by 45 mm.
Within the cabin of the Japanese-spec Toyota Hilux GR Sport, black leather upholstery is used on the seats, multifunction steering wheel and gear selector lever. This shade is contrasted by red stitching and details. GR branding has been applied to the headrests, stop-start button, instrument cluster and key fob as well. To give the cabin more of a sporty feel, a pair of aluminium pedals and metallic steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters are fitted.
Powering the Japanese-spec Toyota Hilux GR Sport is the brand’s turbodiesel 2,4-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 110 kW and 400 N.m of torque to the 4×4 system via a six-speed automatic transmission.
