The 2016 Toyota Hilux is getting ready to be offered across the Australia continent where this will become available in a lot of versions. There’s three grades – Workmate, SR, and SR5. The body styles are single cab, extra cab and double cab. There’s 4X2, 4X4 and 4X2 High Rider which is a 4X4 but without the transfer case and the other four wheel drive hardware. Overall, there’s 31 different combinations, up from 23 in the previous model.
