As a sign, written in the stars, the first Toyota Hilux Legend 40 rolled off the production line on the same day that Chuck Norris celebrated his birthday.
Toyota Hilux Legend 40 celebrates long history in SA
The Toyota Hilux, the country’s top selling vehicle, celebrates 40 years in South Africa. The Toyota Hilux Legend 40 adds visual appeal which includes a Legend 40 roll bar, side steps, nudge bar and rear bumper with towbar all from high gloss stainless steel. Legend 40 decals and a special tonneau cover are also included.
The high level of interior specification includes a Legend 40 carpet set, full leather trim (including doors, steering wheel and gear knob), sound system, electric windows and alloy wheels.
The Hilux Range expanded to include two single cab models and seven double cab models. The Toyota Hilux Legend 40 range also covers 4×2 and 4×4 models. A limited production run will ensure the exclusivity and collectability of the Legend 40.
The Toyota Hilux Legend 40 builds on the success of the Hilux Legend 35, which appeared halfway through the first decade of the new millennium. The Legend 35 celebrated 35 years of Hilux market dominance and it carried those achievements proudly as a badge on its bull bar, roll bar and rear load bay.
Five years on, and forty years since first introduction, the Hilux remains the most popular and one of the toughest bakkies in the business. To be exact it ended 2009 as the country’s most popular vehicle choice, bar none. Built to the highest standards at Toyota’s Prospecton plant in KwaZulu-Natal it also represents South African build quality in other parts of the world.
