Toyota set to add 48-volt tech to 2024 HiLux

Toyota is set to offer improved fuel efficiency by up to 10 per cent across a number of its HiLux variants in 2024, with the addition of what it calls 48-Volt Technology. It will be combined with the 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine and six-speed auto transmission.

The addition of a 48-volt battery, small electric motor-generator and other components, collectively known across the industry as mild-hybrid technology will also enable a stop/start system, improved driveability and reduced noise, vibration and harshness.

“We are continually striving to reduce the fuel consumption of our vehicles to help reduce on-going costs for customers, as well as helping reduce our environmental impact, and the addition of 48-Volt Technology to our biggest-selling vehicle line will contribute to this,” Toyota Australia VP of sales, marketing and franchise operations, Sean Hanley said.

“This new technology will not only improve fuel consumption, but customers will also benefit from enhanced on and off-road performance, making the HiLux even more appealing for a weekend away or longer term excursion into the outback.”

48-Volt Technology will be fitted as standard to all 4×4 SR5 and Rogue Double Cab models and be available as an option for 4×4 SR Double Cab. It has no impact on the capability of the HiLux, with all variants maintaining the 3500kg braked towing capacity.

Further details will be provided closer to the new model’s launch in 2024. If you’re keen on one and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
