Just thought I'd start this thread seeing as there's not a soul who has mentioned the mighty hilux!!!

What's everyone think of the new one? I think it looks sweet..

Anyways where are the hilux owners at? I mean come on people u see them dumped on the ground dragging their asses on big chromes all over the place...

I think the new shape looks good in 4WD but not so good in 2WD, the front overhang is very long and looks a bit weird when it's closer to the ground, But lift it up and put a set of 36's under those wheel arches and it looks tonka tough!

Yeah I gotta agree mate, its not as workman as it was before eh? Kind of reminds me of that nissan navara thing, i cant remember wat u call it, but yeh its plastic everywhere wit the big alloy roll bar thing that wouldnt really do anything anyway... looks just like a meaner honda cr-v aha...

Used have a 2.0 litre (18R engine) 'lux - that would go side ways in the wet too, but struggled on the slightest grade!

Try the 4.0 V6, or the new TD (if you tow). That'll make ya rethink the 2.7L performance.

We got our SR5 diesel a couple of months ago. Lucked in and our car was delivered with the engine and spec upgrade that happened around Sept 06 (a little more power, and some more 'bits and pieces').

I hadn't realised though, that a Hilux is more of a kit car than the usual factory offerings. As soon as we took delivery,we started changing things. Seats were the first.....

Since then, we've had a second battery installed. Hella spotlights. It's going in today for installation of a combined navigation and sound system, as well as UHF CB. Long range fuel tank next week. Canopy in a couple of months. And then it will be off for a drive to northwest oz.

looks good jb747!

i wouldnt mind doing a seat change in mine, but kinda like the bench thats in the manual. i guess i could change the drivers and get the bench re-trimed.

Ok, so my Dad has an 07 work mate 4x2 V6 petrol, it's awesome, drives and feels like a car, and sits at 140 - 150 kph quite comfortably.

My brother has a 07 SR5 4x4 dual cab V6 petrol, It too is great on the road, and has no prob off road too...

I've just bought myself a brand new SR 4x4 V6 petrol dual cab... I haven't driven it, nor taken delivery of it yet (7 jan 08) but I expect it to be equally good too...

In short, I love them...

Love the new Lux! I've got a '92 model and it just keeps on truckin. I'm in the market for a new car and have decided on the SR Single Cab pickup v6. However I have a question nobody seems to be able to answer?

WHAT IS THE 0-100KM/HR TIME?

I've owned a few sports cars (last one was Honda S2000) and 175kW of power is pretty decent in fact on par with the s2000! I realize that its not a sports car and is geared differently (in more ways than one) but it seems to have a tonne of potential. The TRD concept SR5 is supercharged and pulls sub 7.5secs, however that is the large heavy 4x4 dualcab. Surely the lighter single cab could do sub 6.5secs with the right mods? I'm interested to know if anyone has any thoughts or knowledge on the matter? I'm not a rev head but it'd be nice to shut down some of these posers in their Holden & Ford utes!

PS: I find it hilarious that people seem to be selling used Hilux's for more than new dealer costs! Check out Carpoint, am I missing something here?
