Toyota has added a new style to the ruggedness of Australia's best-selling four-wheel-drive with the release of a special-edition model labelled HiLux Black.

The name suggests what is involved: HiLux Black is decked out with exterior and interior treatments that are presented in black to imply a certain toughness and, hence, appeal.

New for this edition of the "unbreakable" HiLux is the combination of brooding black side steps, sports bar and leather-accented interior trim including the six-way adjustable power-operated driver's seat.

Even the newly designed 17-inch alloy wheels are painted black behind their brightly machined six-spoke facades.

Prominent new front and rear bumpers, never previously offered in Australia, give the HiLux Black a lower, more planted stance - a powerful look accentuated by black extensions below the fog light surrounds.

Maintaining the model's moody theme is a large black lower front grille that features a stylish red stripe along the bottom edge. LED daylight running lamps are specified for the first time on a HiLux in Australia.

Enthusiasts will appreciate the involvement of Toyota's global partner TRD for cosmetic enhancements with its familiar logo appearing on the wheel caps and the front bumper extension.

With fewer than 1,000 being produced, the HiLux Black is based on the SR5 4x4 Double Cab utility and attracts the maximum five-star safety rating.

Toyota Australia executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb said the special-edition model is ideally suited to meet the remarkably divergent demands of HiLux customers.

"People buy HiLux as a tough workhorse, a family vehicle or as a mixture of both, which means they are attracted by its renowned ruggedness and also its car-like comfort," he said.

"HiLux Black delivers the best of both worlds. Its aggressive black features build on the unbreakable image of HiLux while exuding a premium appearance because black is always in style."

The special-edition model is powered exclusively by Toyota's torquey 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, matched to either a five-speed manual gearbox or the five-speed automatic transmission introduced earlier this year.

The extensive feature list includes a reversing camera and a satellite navigation system with SUNA™ Live Traffic updates (limited area covered) - all viewed on the 6.1-inch display audio screen.

Special-edition badges located discreetly on the front and rear bumpers further distinguish the HiLux Black.

The colour choice is black and white - literally, as Toyota has chosen Eclipse Black and Glacier White as the only exterior paint options for the special edition model.

Equally as stark is the black-and-white sales dominance HiLux enjoys among local customers. HiLux is the best-selling vehicle of its type and ranks third on the best-seller list for all vehicles in Australia.

In 4x4 guise, its sales have topped 20,000 this year - a lead of more than 5,000 sales over its nearest competitor. In the 4x2 utility/cab-chassis market, HiLux sales are running more than 3,500 vehicles ahead of its closest rivals.

Toyota HiLux Black is priced from $53,240* for the manual version in white. The optional black paint is $550* extra. Automatic transmission is optional at $2,750*.

Like all HiLux models, it is covered by Toyota Service Advantage at a maximum of $170 per service (conditions apply).


* Manufacturer's List Price (MLP) excludes dealer delivery fees and the numerous statutory charges (commonly known as on-road costs). Additionally, please note that all prices, fees and charges are subject to change without notice, as are the specifications.
