Why You Should Invest In Australia's Best Selling Vehicle
What revs your heart?
Is it power? Beauty? Or some good old fashioned reliability?
How about something resilient and popular, which tangoes between work and play like Jamie Whincup and Fabian Coulthard out on the racetrack?
The Toyota HiLux, fondly coined Unbreakable, undisputedly revs the hearts of many commonly found at the work site, proven by being labelled Australia's best-selling ute. It's true-blue and always tuned to beast mode. Silver lining? There are six individual models to satisfy any craving, with the HiLux range including the Workmate, SR, SR5, Rogue, Rugged and Rugged X.
What's the point though of getting yourself a tool of the trade HiLux?
Three years running as the 'red dirt's' top-selling vehicle - you read that right, the HiLux is on top of both the Australian ute and vehicle sales charts - the HiLux range is a remarkable, solid machine, that threw off the frills in favour of brute strength and one boss chassis.
To boot, the entire HiLux range comes with 7 SRS airbags, smart phone connectivity, multifunction control screen, trip meter and cruise control. In addition, the Workmate, SR and SR5 all come with a 5-star ANCAP safety rating.
This model is no-nonsense. No frills or fluff either. Instead, this model is packed with a 2.8L turbo diesel engine across the range (excluding 2.4L turbo diesel/2.7 petrol for the Workmate) and the options of Single-Cab, Extra-Cab or Double-Cab to tackle any worksite and let your Blue Heeler tag along.
Invest in a ute that lets you throw anything (except the Statue of Liberty) into its tray, without the materialistic fear that you'll scratch the paint or ruin some preconceived idea that you'll dint a vehicle whose sole purpose is to be unbreakable.
Plus, the HiLux range consistently receives excellent reviews across the board, which is so far beyond the norm that it would add a twinkle to the eye of even the most suspicious driver, or worksite foreman. Don't believe us? Entertain us and read on...
Carsguide calls the Toyota HiLux "a byword for reliability and utility".
Car Advice stacked up the HiLux against the likes of a Ranger, a Colorado and an Amarok, noting that regardless of each competitors frills, "The Toyota improves the harder you work it, [and] stacks up relatively well value-wise compared to how it used to when Toyota had less competition."
The Ute Guide summed it up by stating that "The Toyota Hilux offers more SUV-like features including an improved compliant ride, quieter cabins and higher levels of comfort and convenience."
Don't fall for the fool's gold of utes. Instead, lean on the HiLux's no-nonsense approach to getting the job done (and done well).
