Toyota Motor Philippines has quietly updated its Hilux for the 2023 model year bringing with it additional spec and tech.
While the fleet-oriented J and E variants remain unchanged, the G now adds a tailgate assist (it makes opening and closing of the tailgate easier) and bedliner as standard. Moving up to the Conquest, both the 4×2 and 4×4 variants now add standard Toyota Safety Sense unlocking features such as autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure alert. Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line Hilux GR Sport adds blind spot indicators with rear cross traffic alert.
Naturally, the new feature-set means a higher price ranging from P 18,000 to P 49,000. Again, only the fleet-oriented models such as the cab & chassis, J, and E remain unchanged (they had a small price bump prior to this update). Also, the FX body without the rear AC option has been removed, probably to give the Lite Ace some breathing room.
Note that these price increases do not reflect the proposed excise tax on pickup trucks.
Toyota Motor Philippines was quick to point out that as of now, the government hasn’t passed any bill that would levy additional taxes on these types of commercial vehicles
