Toyota Motor Thailand Company Limited has initiated its first 1-tonne pickup trucks product line and distributed them for the first time in 1968 by the trading name of "Hilux." It has been well-received among customers within a short amount of time because of its stunning exterior, spacious cabin, robust engine performance, fuel efficiency, durability, low maintenance rate, and suitability for any usage.

Mr. Noriaki Yamashita, President of Toyota Motor Thailand, said: “on behalf of Toyota Motor Thailand, I would like to express my gratitude to all the medical staffs for working hard on the frontline every day. Also, we would like to extend our sympathies to all Thai people in the challenging situation. We will stay by your side to overcome this crisis together. As you may aware, our mission is "delivering happiness for all Thai people". And we never stop challenging in making "Ever-Better" cars. As you know, Last June, we introduced new Hilux Revo with the 2nd Generation of "GD Super Power Engine" and "Superflex Suspension".  It was well evaluated by customers together with updated design. Furthermore, we quickly response customers' need. Last December, we improved the products, such as adopting wide body for lo-floor and adding Automatic transmission for entry grade in lo-floor. I would like to say "thank you" to all Thais customers for their great acceptance.”

We have applied the insights and experiences acquired from the racings to the GR model's development process to reach the customers who are looking for a whole new professional driving experience."
