Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has officially introduced the 2020 update on one of the most popular models in its lineup – the Toyota Hilux.
With its rugged looks and powerful performance, combined with Toyota’s signature quality, durability, and reliability, the Hilux further establishes its position as the country’s best-selling pick-up.

In 2019, it captured a commanding 30.5% segment share, a lead that TMP is looking to maintain through the introduction of the world-renowned pickup badge’s latest version.
“This 2020, the NEW TOYOTA HILUX and TOYOTA HILUX CONQUEST arrive with an impressive new look, that is more rugged and exciting than ever.” said TMP President Atsuhiro Okamoto during the online launch of the new vehicle. “The new Hilux is designed to meet the tough demands of Filipino drivers and the country’s varying roads. I am confident that the Hilux would once again prove why it is the Philippines’ pick-up of choice. Tough on every road, every inch a HILUX.” he added.
The New Hilux comes with improvements on its looks, performance, and features, and is available in 4×4 Conquest and 4×2 Conquest variants, G AT and MT, and E MT. Combining the improvements and competitive pricing, Hilux customers get more value for money on their vehicle with the E variant starting at Php 1.1M.
