You Won't Believe What Lurks Under the Hood of This Toyota Hilux

You Won’t Believe What Lurks Under the Hood of This Toyota Hilux

It sounds great and makes for a perfect sleeper truck

Well, here’s a Mercedes X-Class pickup truck with an older 6.2-liter Mercedes-AMG mill plonked under the hood. Oh, wait, I’m sorry. It’s a Toyota Hilux with an AMG engine.

Finally, you’ll be able to get official Toyota parts, but it’s not quite as good as it sounds

The 1986-1993 A70-gen Toyota Supra might not be as famous as the 1993-2002 A80 Toyota Supra – you can probably thank the Fast and Furious franchise for that – but both were awesome cars and sporty in their own right.

Old-school owners of the Toyota Supra have waited a long time for this day to come

The all-new MkV Toyota Supra is all everyone is talking about these days.
