Toyota HILUX XTRA CAB JOINS POPULAR HILUX RANGE
- South Africa’s most popular vehicle now available with third body style
- Two versions initially available – 3.0 D-4D with either 4×2 or 4×4
- Toyota Hilux Xtra Cab cab length is 1 840 mm, compared to 1 340 mm in single cab and 2 130 mm in double cab
Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) has added the Toyota Hilux Xtra Cab to the popular Hilux range of bakkies.
The Toyota Hilux Xtra Cab is available immediately and offers a stretched cabin with 500 mm more cabin space than the single cab. This creates a storage area behind the two individual front seats for the safe and secure storage of valuables and equipment.
Two versions of the Hilux Xtra Cab will be available, offering the choice of a 4×2 or 4×4 drive train. Both versions will be mated to the well known and trusted 3.0 D-4D turbo diesel engine.
The 3.0 D-4D engine has proven its mettle in all conditions, ranging from the dry and dusty areas of Southern Africa to the extreme cold of Antarctica. The engine offers 120 kW at 3 400 rpm and 343 Nm of torque in a linear band between 1 400 and 3 200 rpm. The 3.0 D-4D is also no stranger to arduous towing tasks, thanks to its turbo charger and, more importantly, its intercooler.
The two versions will offer specification levels similar to that of the double cab. Cosmetically these specifications include chrome trim on the grille, side mirrors and rear bumper step. The chrome trim will be complimented with alloy wheels and aluminium side steps, which is included in the retail price.
Other benefits include an LED high level stop lamp, double skinned load box, added protection for the gearbox, engine, fuel tank and – in the 4×4 version – for the transfer box. The Xtra Cab is also fitted with a large 80 litre fuel tank with remote fuel cap opener. The load box is 1 805 mm long, compared to 2 315 mm on the single cab and 1 520 mm on the double cab.
Both versions of the Hilux Xtra Cab are fitted with a locking rear differential and a five speed manual gearbox. The 4×4 version adds an automatically locking front differential as well, while both versions offer 212 mm of ground clearance.
The extra space created by the 500 mm cab extension is immediately evident once behind the steering wheel. Access to the rear storage space is easy, thanks to tilt and slide front seats. Interior luxuries are to Raider specification and mirrors that of the double cab range. Luxuries include a radio/CD player with MP3 functionality, Optitron instrumentation, height adjustable power steering with leather trim on steering wheel, cruise control, electric windows and tinted windows all round.
Vehicle safety is well taken care of with the fitment of ABS, dual airbags and side impact protection. Both versions also offer remote central locking and an immobiliser as standard.
The Hilux Xtra Cab is sold with a 5 year / 90 000 km service plan and a 3 year / 100 000 km warranty and roadside assistance plan.
