We're so excited to share that Toyota is set to offer approximately 10 percent fuel economy improvement for certain HiLux models, compared to the current 2.8-litre turbo diesel variants, when upgraded versions fitted with 48-Volt Technology arrive in the first half of 2024.

48-Volt Technology will be combined with the 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine and six-speed automatic transmission and comprises an additional 48-Volt battery, small electric motor-generator and other components.

In addition to delivering improved fuel economy, 48-Volt Technology will also enable a stop/start system, improved driveability and reduced noise, vibration and harshness.

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the introduction of 48-Volt Technology to HiLux demonstrated Toyota's commitment to reducing the fuel consumption of its vehicles without compromising on the performance and capability demanded by customers.

"We are continually striving to reduce the fuel consumption of our vehicles to help reduce on-going costs for customers, as well as helping reduce our environmental impact, and the addition of 48-Volt Technology to our biggest-selling vehicle line will contribute to this," Mr Hanley said.

"This new technology will not only improve fuel consumption, but customers will also benefit from enhanced on and off-road performance, making the HiLux even more appealing for a weekend away or longer term excursion into the outback," he said.

48-Volt Technology will be fitted as standard to all 4x4 SR5 and Rogue Double Cab models and be available as an option for 4x4 SR Double Cab.

The addition of 48-Volt Technology will not have any impact on the capability of the HiLux with the 4x4 models, maintaining their 3500kg braked towing capacity.

Further details will be provided closer to launch in 2024.
