This modified Toyota Hilux from Northeast India looks off-road ready [Video]

Toyota Hilux is a popular pick up truck around the world and the manufacturer recently launched the same in India. When compared with Isuzu V-Cross, Hilux is a lot more expensive. That is because Toyota is marketing it as a luxury pick-up truck. It is based on the same platform as Toyota Fortuner. There are several aftermarket accessories for Hilux internationally. These accessories enhance the off-road abilities of the Hilux and we have seen several neatly modified Toyota Hilux from around the world. These accessories are now available in India and people have started making modifications as well. Here we have a video where a Toyota Hilux SUV is neatly modified into an off-road monster.

The video has been uploaded by All in One Entertainment on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger talks about all the modifications that are done and will be done on the Hilux. The modification work on this Toyota Hilux has been carried out by GS Customs from Guwahati. This is probably first modified Toyota Hilux from Northeast India. The owner had opted for modifications that enhance the off-road capabilities.

The first thing that one would notice about this Toyota Hilux is the bumper. The stock bumper on this pick-up truck has been replaced with an aftermarket off-road bumper. The metal off-road bumper enhances the butch look of the SUV and the off-road bumper comes with provision for winch, auxiliary lamps and LED bar lights. There is an all-LED fog lamp installed that is integrated in the bumper. It also doubles up as turn indicator. Coming to the side profile, the Hilux looks taller than the stock version and that is because it now gets 2 inch lift kit installed in it.

The stock alloy wheels on Hilux were removed and were replaced with aftermarket 18 inch alloy wheels from Black Rhino. The tyres were also replaced. The car now gets chunky looking 18 inch All-terrain tyres. The wheels along with the lift kit completely changed the overall look of the car and it looks a lot more intimidating. Vlogger mentions that the work on this Hilux has not finished yet. At the rear, the metal off-road bumper has been installed and it has provisions for tow hooks. The cargo bed on the Hilux will be given a Line-X coating to prevent it from scratches that the car would get otherwise.

It looks like the owner wanted to customise the exterior on the Hilux only. The Hilux is offered in three variants. There is Standard, High and High AT. The Standard is priced at Rs. 33.99 lakh, ex-showroom  High is priced at Rs. 35.80 lakh, ex-showroom and the High AT costs Rs. 36.80 lakh, ex-showroom. It is offered with a diesel engine only. It is the same engine that is also seen on Toyota Fortuner. The 2.8 litre turbocharged diesel engine generates 204 Ps and 420 Nm of torque with the manual gearbox. The automatic version generates 500 Nm of peak torque. It comes with 4×4 system as a standard feature across the range.
