The 2018 Hilux comes with three engines, all with four cylinders. The base is a 2.7-liter, the mid-grade engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel, and the range-topping engine is a 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel. Toyota has dropped the 4.0-liter gasoline V-6 options for 2018, saying it represented less than half of one percent of all Hilux sales.
The base 2.7-liter gasoline four-cylinder is found on WorkMate singe- and double-cab trucks. It makes 164 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 181 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm.
