The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently announced that order books are open for the 2012 Hilux and Fortuner in Malaysia where the two models will arrive in October, this year.
Don’t get your expectations too high on the Toyota Hilux facelift for Malaysia because the model has arrived in the Asian country last September so no radical changes for the model will be applied, except for a noticeable revision in the power output for the 2.5 liter Double Cab model. The 2012 Toyota Hilux is available in one singe color for the single cab, the Solid White (non metallic) and in four colors for the double cab, the Dark Steel Mica, the Silver Metallic, the Medium Silver Metallic and the Solid White.
As for the powertrain on the 3.0 liter version, it remains the same, coming as the 1KD-FTV D-4D commonrail diesel with Variable Nozzle Turbo, and it’s still offering 163 PS And 343 Nm of torque available between 1,400 and 3,200 rpm. The Hilux Double Cab 2.5G is now coming with 144 PS at 3,400 rpm and 343 Nm of torque between 1,600 and 2,800 rpm. More details on the 2012 Toyota Hilux and 2012 Toyota Fortuner for Malaysia will be announced later on this year.
