The Toyota Hilux and Fortuner are together the two most popular pickup and SUV models in South Africa. Since the Hilux’s introduction to South Africa in 1969, it has failed on three occasions only, to bag the best-selling LCV (Light Commercial Vehicle) title. In fact Toyota’s remarkable success and market leadership in South Africa, can be largely attributed to the trusty, tough-as-nails Hilux. And if your travels in South Africa happen to take you to the Free State, you will most likely be further convinced that the Hilux belongs right there next to Biltong, Braaivleis and Mrs Balls Chutney as true South African icons.
And recently another proud “South African” story has been capturing the world’s attention. A South African built Hilux, driven by our own Giniel de Villiers has been giving the premier rally teams a lekker run for their money in the Dakar Rally, fondly referred to as the World’s Toughest Race. Giniel powered his Hilux to 3rd overall in 2012, and improved to a stunning 2nd in 2013. And to get us all into gear before the next edition takes place early in 2014, we have these special editions for you. What better way to celebrate a Dakar victory than with your very own “Dakar Hilux” ? Details of extras below the images.
