The new ‘workhorse’ trims join the range-topping Invincible and Invincible X Double Cabs already open for pre-orders as part of the updated eighth-gen model and carry over the new bolder front-end design and stronger road presence. All models also feature a one-tonne payload and 3.5-tonne towing capacity.

The new Active and Icon grades use the 2.4-litre D-4D engine introduced on the current generation – the Invincible grades also get a new 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine – which now features stop/start technology on Extra and Double Cab models.

The entry-level Active grade is offered in Single, Extra and Double Cab, and now gets Toyota Safety Sense 2 fitted as standard, bringing a range of advanced driver assistance features. These include a Pre-Collision System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert and Road Sign Assist.

All new Hilux models also come with Connected car capabilities including features such as driving analytics, maintenance reminders and ‘find my car’.

The entry-level Hilux also carries over the existing air-conditioning, radio and CD player, Bluetooth with USB, auto headlights and a rear differential lock.

The Icon grade is available in Double Cab only and priced at £26,549 (CV OTR) for the manual version. New features add the latest multimedia software including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, coupled with a new 8-inch Toyota Touchscreen. Additions include new 17-inch alloy wheels along with an automatic limited slip differential to improve low grip driving in 2WD. It also builds on the Active by adding in power-folding door mirrors, reversing camera, privacy glass, LED front fog-lamps and side-steps.
