What to expect from a redesigned 2025 Toyota Hilux USA

The Toyota Hilux is the most popular truck in the world, but in the USA, it does not have that much popularity. There are multiple reasons for Hilux’s popularity, and one of the biggest is the reliability of this truck. The 2025 Toyota Hilux USA is promised to deliver a refreshed version of the 2024 model. However, it will undergo plenty of changes to make this truck popular in the US market.

We expect changes to include a new hybrid engine under the hood. The rumors from Toyota suggest that the Hilux will get a new premium trim. This new model will make this truck appealing to people who want a dose of comfort that will be paired with Hilux’s well-known reliability and working capabilities.

But the biggest surprise for an upcoming model can be the fully electric variant that will be built on a new platform. This is all based on rumors, but the automotive industry is moving in this direction, so we expect to see the introduction of a fully electric model shortly.

The 2025 Toyota Hilux will be available with a wide range of powertrains under the hood. We expect the most popular gasoline model to be available on the US market. But probably the biggest change under the hood of the internal combustion model will be the new diesel hybrid powertrain. The newly developed mill will mix a well-known 2.8 diesel engine with a new hybrid system.

But the most popular powerplant will be the Toyota 2.4-liter turbocharged inline-four. This powertrain will be able to deliver up to 220 horsepower with 240 pounds of torque. It will be paired with a 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual, depending on customer preference.
The truck will typically come with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive will be an option on some models.

2025 Toyota Hilux USA Diesel

As we already mentioned, the 2025 Hilux will bring the diesel engine to the US market. There will be two diesel engines available in total. The newly developed mill will be a synergy of a turbo-diesel V6 and a small electric motor. This powertrain will be able to give a needed boost to diesel in low RPMS and make this model more fuel-efficient in the city. The expected power will be 210 horsepower and up to 250 pound-feet of torque. Also, there will be the old powertrain that will come with lower-end trims. This well-known diesel 2.5 engine will come with the same specifications as the 2024 model. It will deliver 220 horsepower and up to 320 pound-feet of torque.
The maximum towing rate for a diesel powertrain will be 7000 pounds, with up to 1500 pounds of carrying capacity.

2025 Toyota Hilux USA Interior

The refreshed 2025 Toyota Hilux USA will bring some changes to the interior. The changes will include a new center console redesign with a new 10-inch touchscreen. The new digital driver display will get new Toyota software and a new graphic. We also expect that premium trims will get new, more comfortable leather seats and new leather upholstery. The sound system will also get improved, and on a 2025 model, there will be a 10-speaker system that will be signed in by Bose.

The upcoming Hilux will also not lack connecting options. Android Auto and Google CarPlay will come as standard, and wireless charging pads and Type C fast charging options will come in more expensive models. Also, safety will be improved, and some of the standard safety equipment will include:

  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane-keeping assistance
  • Pedestrian Detect
  • Sign Reorganisation
  • Automatic Breaking
  • Cross-Traffic Alert

2025 Toyota Hilux USA GR SPORT

The GR Sport is an offroad-oriented model of the Hilux. This trim will come at a starting price of $75,000, and he will have plenty of upgrades from a standard model. Under the hood of this truck, we will find a new 48V mild hybrid system. The all-wheel drive will be standard, as will the rear locking differential. The all-terrain tires will also be standard equipment on this model.

But upgrades will not stop here. We expect to see a lifted off-road suspension that will make this model more off-road capable. Underbody protection with side rock guards.

And the interior will get plenty of changes. The red interior upholstery will come as a standard. With red seatbelts and premium leather GR SPORT seats.

With a starting price of $28.000, that will go up to $75.000 for top-tier trim. The new mild diesel engine trim will start at $45,000 and offer a good balance between power equipment and price.
