The facelifted Toyota Hilux is set to launch in South Africa soon and we’ve laid our hands on local pricing for the reshuffled bakkie range.

[UPDATE: Toyota South Africa Motors has since released full details on the updated range.]

As before, chassis-cab, single-cab, xtra-cab and double-cab body styles are offered, with all 2,8-litre turbodiesel engines upgrading to 150 kW. Pricing now starts at R288 000 and tops out at R851 100 (head to the bottom of the page for full range pricing).

Interestingly, Toyota South Africa Motors appears to have rolled out a new “Legend” badge to the line-up, effectively replacing the Legend 50 models from the outgoing range.

In addition, previous SRX variants seem to have been superseded by Raider derivatives. The GR Sport model, meanwhile, has left the line-up, along with a pair of manual versions of the 2,8 GD-6 powertrain.

From what we understand, the base S and SR variants retain the current design, while the Raider and Legend derivatives upgrade to the latest face. Legend models appear to be similar in design to the Hilux Revo Rocco variants offered in Thailand and the Hilux Rogue derivatives available in Australia, complete with extra black plastic cladding up front and along the wheel arches.

There's also a new "RS" package. We know only two models will be offered with this optional kit, both powered by the 2,8-litre engine and both featuring 4x4 (one in six-speed manual form and the other in auto guise). From what we can tell, RS models gain model-specific items such as a sports bar and load-bay cover. We’ll learn more once Toyota SA releases full details but for now we know these models will top the range at R819 000 and R851 100, respectively.

Revealed in June 2020, the refreshed Hilux sports added grunt from its 2,8-litre turbodiesel heart. The familiar 2,8 GD-6 oil-burning engine has had its maximum power increased from 130 kW to 150 kW, while peak torque on automatic models has been hiked from 450 N.m to 500 N.m (but remains at 420 N.m for manual variants). The 110 kW/400 N.m 2,4-litre turbodiesel motor and naturally aspirated 2,7-litre petrol engine solider on largely unchanged, as does the 175 kW/376 N.m 4,0-litre V6 petrol unit.

From what we understand, the Hilux has gained suspension and steering changes, too, ostensibly resulting in improvements to ride comfort. No word yet on what updates have been made to the cabin of SA-spec models.

The Hilux for the South African market is, of course, produced at Toyota’s Prospecton plant in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. An upgraded version of the eighth-generation bakkie hit the local market in May 2018 in the form of the limited-edition Dakar, before the updates were rolled out to other derivatives. The Legend 50 variants followed in June 2019.
