The Hilux that has more bells and whistles than Santa's sleigh

What do you get the guy that has everything or deserves everything this Christmas???

A HILUX! And not just any Hilux, if there even is such a thing, the special edition Toyota Hilux Rugged X.

Kitted out with loads of extras the Hilux Rugged X is a true leader in its class that gives you on road presence like nothing else. Check this line up of extras that’s sure to make Santa blush:


Every HiLux has Hill-start Assist Control[S1] to help you avoid rollback on steep inclines. Selected models also have Downhill Assist Control[S1] for low speed control when descending slopes.


The heavy-duty HiLux suspension is built for the Australian outback, delivering an incredible 49-degree corner approach angle (Rugged X only) that makes light work of the harshest off-road conditions. Recovery Points[J10] depicted.


A fully integrated LED light bar is complemented by two LED spread beam driving lights to provide maximum visibility on unlit roads and off-road terrain. Available on Rugged X models only.


Jump behind the wheel and you’ll discover that behind the tough exterior lies a stylish, well-appointed interior that’s more SUV than workhorse, and quieter than ever before.


Take the best route to your next job with an integrated satellite navigation[N1] unit, that also lets you connect your smartphone to Toyota Link[TL1] to find cheap fuel and more.


Carry everything you need for the job, with an impressive braked towing capacity of up to 3.5 tonnes[G6] even when you’re off-road (applies to SR & SR5 4x4 Double-Cab, Rugged and Rugged X turbo diesel Manual variants). Tow Capacity[G6] may vary.


In tough situations, just hit the button to engage intelligent manual transmission (i-MT). It then maintains optimal revs to help you change gears smoothly and help avoid stalling. (Standard on SR5 and Rugged X turbo diesel manual models).


Simply get in and get going without taking the key out of your pocket or bag, using the smart entry and start system. Plus wherever you’re headed, you’ll enjoy the reassurance of knowing HiLux is built with your safety in mind. Featuring smart pedestrian and daytime cyclist detection technology, HiLux has a front-mounted camera and radar designed to warn you in the event of a frontal collision so you can take the necessary precautions.

But don’t just take our word for it. This year the experts have had nothing but praise for our belived Hilux.

Carsguide had this to say:

“If you had to sum the Toyota HiLux up in one phrase, it'd be 'rugged utility'.The big ute defines this concept to the extent that you can literally take one through a war zone – and plenty have.”

How they say it drives:

“The Rugged X is built for the outdoors and if your family is the adventurous type or just starting to explore that possibility, then the Rugged X will serve you well.”

In conclusion:

“We loved our time in the Rugged X, the mix of menacing looks, everyday usefulness and off-road possibilities, was great for a family like ours that prefers the outdoors. And the kids loved turning heads in the school carpark, too.”

See, this is the ULTIMATE Chrissy present for the man who needs as much presence on the road as he has off it!
