The Hilux is 50 years old and to celebrate the occasion, Toyota and Arctic Trucks came together to develop the special edition Hilux Invincible 50. It will only be sold in the UK and will not come to South Africa.
The Hilux Invincible 50 has enhanced off-road capability with a performance suspension by Arctic Trucks and Bilstein while the new ET05 alloy wheels are specific to this special edition model and come wrapped in all-terrain Goodrich tyres.
With this setup, the Hilux Invincible 50 has a more ground clearance and stands 40 mm higher at the front and 20 mm higher at the rear with more articulation and increased approach and departure angles.
In terms of styling, the model features wider front and rear wings while a double-hoop sports bar is fitted that includes 4 high-power Vision X LED lights, perhaps for hunting rabbits in the English countryside…
Other details include rear Arctic Trucks mud flaps, a Line-X bed liner, a Toyota tailgate graphic and rear parking sensors. There’s a numbered Invincible 50 plaque in the cabin and Invincible 50 chrome badging and detailing are seen on the wings, wheels, doors, tailgate, sports bar, lighting and interior. All Hilux Invincible 50 models are finished in black paintwork. The familiar 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine does service under the bonnet and it comes mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Toyota Hilux is currently the most-popular vehicle sold in South Africa.
