Toyota have unveiled a new pick up truck. They've called it a Hilux Revo and it looks remarkably like a Hilux Vigo.

I must say I really like the blue in the models below. I had a motorbike 20 years ago that was exactly the same colour.  ;D

2015 Toyota Hilux Revo

The country’s best-selling pickup gets all-new design, bigger body, more economical powertrains, car-like interior, more safety features and a new moniker.

Toyota has staged the world premiere of its eight-generation Hilux in Thailand today after selling its direct predecessor for 11 years.

Developed as a replacement for the Hilux Vigo, the Hilux Revo gets a new diesel engine family under the GD code. The two four-cylinder motors highlight more low-end torque and efficiency rather than outright power when compared to its predecessors.

The 2.4-litre version produces 150hp and 400Nm, while the 2.8-litre variant generates 177hp and 420Nm (450Nm with automatic transmission).

There’s also a petrol version, which is an upgraded version of the 2.7-litre four-cylinder now featuring dual variable valve-timing control. Outputs are rated at 166hp and 245Nm.

There are options of six-speed manual or automatic gearbox, 2WD or 4WD and standard, extra or double cab.

The use of the upgraded transmissions (from the previous five-speeders) and automatic stop/start system is claimed to improve fuel economy by 10%.

In a bid to attract more buyers to its workhorse vehicle, Toyota has given the Revo more car-like exterior and interior design cues aping those of the Corolla compact saloon.

The front end of the Revo is emphasised with projector-type head lamps with LED daytime-running lights.

Prices for the standard body range from 569,000-675,000 baht, extra cab from 619,000-899,000 baht and double cab from 725,000 to 1.139 million baht.

The new Revo looks like a panel beaters nightmare.

There are photos & videos of the new fortuner on the net. just google 2015 new fortuner. There are a couple of videos that someone has shot that show it on the road, but Toyota have been clever and painted them matte black with white squirls and black and white chequers to hide the body lines.
