If you’re not familiar with the off-road vehicles Australians consider “iconic,” here’s your chance to see how well four of the all-time greatest hold up against the outback. And if you do know these trucks, you know they’ll be fun to watch.
A rhinoceros really wailed on these tourists’ Toyota hard with its horn the other day. Guess it figured legs get right-of-way over wheels in Namibia’s Etosha National Park?
Never give up on your dreams!
I guess some of you are pretty impressed by a truck that can drive slowly without turning, because about a hundred uploads of this video are in my inbox today. Donno y’all, looks like a regular old pickup that doesn’t even fall into an alligator-infested muddy river or anything.
If you think Toyota trucks are too expensive, don't bother looking at this pristine crew-cab 1989 Hilux diesel. It's reportedly "100% legal" for US road-use and is currently for sale with a clean Minnesota title... for the price of a decent brand-new Tacoma.
How extreme is the Dakar Rally? Well how many races do you see cars coming in on the towstrap of a competitor? I hope the pilot doing the pulling here got some good karma, because the dangling derelict in this clip went on to finish 6th in class.
Let me just say that this is not a recommended form of house demolition.
Old Toyota pickups are world-renowned for their durability and indestructibility. But it looks like they get even better when they're rusted-out hunks of crap.
In Mother 'Murica, you sell pickup trucks with Bob Seger. The King Ranch. Floor-spittin' horse-towing Marlboro-Man shit. Down east they do it a little different; Toyota's just commissioned their own Gangnam Style-style dance number to sell their Hilux pickup and it is batshit insane.
The Toyota Hilux is basically the gold standard in budget backcountry warfighting trucks, so I wasn't surprised that the Taliban used one in the release of captive Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl as seen in their unverified video. I did not expect the Islamic fundamentalists to be rocking such a flamboyant graphics package though.
Somebody did a great job replicating Top Gear's indestructible Toyota Hilux, and sent it into the mud with fanfare worthy of the vehicle's legendary status.
What's synonymous with off-roading and makes any truck look extra badass? "Bolted-on polished tube nudge bars!" said no one. But apparently that's what makes the Toyota Hilux Dakar "the ultimate Hilux."
The Toyota Hilux is a capable machine that's already reached the South Pole. But this is an even more capable Hilux that crossed Antarctica: the record-setting 6x6 Hilux.
Nineteen year old Parker Liautaud has just set a speed record for skiing from the Antarctic coast to the South Pole, followed by a beastly Toyota Hilux 6x6 to manage communications and collect data pertaining to climate change.
If it's your second day of off road driving, it's probably not wise to take a massive jump in your old Toyota truck. Luckily for our amusement, Australian hoons are not wise.
Judging from his garage, Duane Schaffer likes his vintage vehicles from The Land of the Rising Sun a certain way—slightly odd and extremely low.
Thanks to a perception of versatility, reliability and affordability, the Toyota Hilux is the pickup truck of choice for terrorists and mercenaries all over the world. Now, a Florida car dealer is paying $7.5 million for making that association at the expense of a rival Iranian-born car dealer.
How is it possible that an advertisement from Toyota manages to capture the spirit of man-car love? Simple, it's from Toyota Australia. There's nothing wrong with a Tacoma or a Tundra, but there's just so much right with a HiLux.
