Nowadays, we have two engine options for 2019 Toyota Hilux. However, we can’t call either a main drivetrain. Different markets won’t have one of these. So for some countries one will be standard, and for others second mill. We give the priority to 2.4-l diesel engine. This will be the drivetrain of the first examples of the 2019 Hilux. Other one, a 2.8-l petrol is coming probably later with extra trim levels. Diesel drivetrain can make 150 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. It replaced 3.0-l engine because of the efficiency. With it, pickup truck will have better towing capacity than Mitsubishi L200, but still less than Nissan Navara.
