Hi all, my first post here.

Does anyone know when the 2017 Hilux will be announced/released?

I am wanting to buy a new SR5 and I thought I might wait until the 2017 model as there probably be a fix or two and or add ons.

Thanks

Sept/October seem to be the times for changing models--it MIGHT be better than existing one, but caution is recommended.   Let someone else find the defects--it's a lot cheaper/easier, and there's been quite a few big recalls ex Nippon last few years.  BTW, if you can afford a new one, you must be doing well.   Depeciation is a killer for private owners.

Thanks Manxman, that is why I am waiting to the 2017 model as it will probably have a few fixes. I will be using it for work, I am not rich I am a builder and work has been good and need another vehicle and don't want to buy someone else's problems. My first new car, I am going to keep for a long time so not worried about depreciation.

I have the 2017 March Build.  

Nthing has changed but is does incorporate software updates for infotainment and Auto box.  

Very happy with it.

Thanks for that, I ended up purchasing a 2016 in late December.

Its a metallic white with leather.

Drove the family up to the Gold Coast and back to Hobart over xmas holidays and didn't miss a beat.

Voice recognition is a bit clunky, has a hard time understanding commands, maybe the software update will sort it out.  Same with the transmission, some times tends to hold a too higher gear when turning around a corner.

Tomorrow is going for the 10k service.

Fuel consumption is getting better and better it started at 10.5L/100km and now is down to 9L/100km as motor loosens up.

Thats my son Ewan playing silly buggers.

I wouldn't bank on that, it hasn't worked properly since they first fitted it to the KUN26Rs in 2004.

I'm looking at buying a 2017 SR5, have been told having the smart key fob to close to the car for to long can flatten the battery, there is nothing better than pulling up on the beach for a few hours and relaxing. I'm a bit worried this would be a problem, can anyone give me any clues?
