Toyota Hilux extreme off-road concept showcased at Auto Expo 2023

The Auto Expo 2023 is seeing its share of facelifts, unveils and launches. Toyota has also jumped on board, displaying a beast with other vehicles. Although the car manufacturer has a few futuristic cars on exhibit, such as the bZ4X, the Hilux Extreme Off-road concept has captured everyone's attention.  All red and too large to miss at the Auto Expo 2023, this monster is best suited for off-roading tracks.

For this concept vehicle, Toyota increased the well-known pickup's already-high ground clearance by six inches. Thanks to specialised control arms and dedicated long-travel off-road suspension, the car is more elevated above the ground. The idea comes with a set of gigantic 37-inch Radar Renegade R/T rugged off-road capable tyres.

It gets an off-road bumper with auxiliary LED lights, a roof rack, a snorkel, a winch, and other features. The conventional rear bumper has been replaced with a sturdy piece with a tow hook. The Extreme Off-road Hilux has a roof rack to keep your belongings secure because the spare wheels take up the majority of the pickup truck's cargo area. Jerry cans are kept in the one that is on show at the Auto Expo 2023.

The Toyota Hilux has a 2.8L diesel engine with 201 horsepower and 500 Nm available in India. The engine is compatible with both a 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission. It has a four-wheel drive system, an active traction control system, a limited-slip differential, and an electronic differential lock.
