The long wait is over – Toyota has released an all-new version of its immensely popular Hilux truck for the 2016 model year. The new eighth-generation truck carries a completely new exterior design that looks more upscale than the seventh generation, including plenty of chrome accents, LED-encrusted headlights, and a more cohesive overall design. The updates are far more drastic within the Hilux, as the truck now features a more refined cabin with a dashboard that hints at inspiration from the U.S.-spec Corolla. Toyota is offering a wide selection of powertrains, though choices will be limited for each market. The truck also gets a pair of new transmissions, with the manual gearbox offering active rev matching like the Corvette’s seven-speed manual. This makes the Hilux the first truck application for such technology.

The pickup truck is said to still carry all the rugged reliability that makes a Hilux a Hilux, while adding more creature comforts and interior refinements. That should bode well with truck folks in the 180 countries the Hilux calls home. Despite the new creature comforts, Toyota says the Hilux is still as rugged as ever and ready to handle what customers throw at it. More than 16 million Hilux trucks have been sold since its introduction in 1968, so undoubtedly Toyota is doing something right, and this new-gen model should help keep the ball rolling for a few more years.

With that said, check out our full review below to learn everything there is to know about Toyota’s new Hilux pickup truck.
