Toyota Hilux GR Sport

Following markets like Australia and Thailand, Malaysia today welcomed the Toyota Hilux GR Sport, which comes with a host of Gazoo Racing goodies that make the pickup truck sportier than it already is.

With success in the Dakar Rally, it is only befitting that Toyota bestow the GR emblem on the Hilux.

The Hilux GR Sport features a new sports suspension system with monotube dampers, tuned to inspire greater driving confidence across all terrain.

It is also fitted with paddle shifters for a sportier drive and perfect for those who want maximum response and control – the first paddle shifter system to be implemented in the Hilux line-up.

The Hilux GR Sport’s presence is distinguished by a new front bumper and blacked out side mirrors, grille frame and overfenders finished in body colour for a sportier aesthetic; black sports bar, a new shark fin antenna, and the black and red body side and tailgate graphics which pays homage to Toyota Gazoo Racing’s rally cars. 

The GR Sport Hilux is also fitted with red brake calipers with the GR logo and newly-designed 18-inch alloy wheels.

The interior on the other hand, is detailed with red stitching throughout the cabin with redesigned front sports seats incorporating suede and leather inserts, and GR-badged leather steering wheel with red stitching.

There is also the GR theme optitron meter with GR welcome animation, GR push start button, and aluminium sports pedals. 

Priced at RM159,880 on the road without insurance, the Toyota Hilux GR Sport is available at all Gazoo Racing outlets nationwide.
