Empowering Your Fleet with V-Active Technology in the New Toyota HiLux

Hi-Lux V-Active Technology

As fleet managers and commercial buyers, you are constantly on the lookout for vehicles that can deliver robust performance, superior reliability, and enhanced efficiency. With the arrival of the upgraded Toyota HiLux equipped with cutting-edge V-Active technology, Downtown Toyota is excited to introduce a game-changer in fleet management. Let's dive into how this technology revolutionizes the HiLux, making it a standout choice for both work and adventure.

Introduction to V-Active Technology

The new Toyota HiLux now features the innovative V-Active technology, available on select double-cab 4x4 variants like the SR and SR5, and the luxurious Rogue grade. V-Active technology enhances the traditional 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine with a motor generator, a 48-volt battery, and a DC/DC converter. This integration not only improves fuel economy but also enhances the powertrain's smoothness and off-road capabilities.


Benefits of V-Active Technology for Fleet Vehicles

1. Enhanced Fuel Efficiency

The integration of V-Active technology introduces a stop-start system that can reduce fuel consumption by up to 10%. This is particularly beneficial in stop-start traffic conditions, common in urban fleet operations, helping to lower operational costs significantly.

2. Smooth Operation

The 48-volt system ensures that the start-stop operation is seamless and smooth, reducing engine vibrations upon restarts and making the driving experience more comfortable for fleet drivers who spend long hours on the road.

3. Reduced Idling

With V-Active technology, the HiLux can minimize idling times, with settings that allow the engine to be turned off for longer periods even while the air conditioning is running. This not only saves fuel but also reduces wear and tear on the engine.

4. Energy Recovery

During deceleration, the motor generator recovers braking energy, contributing to better energy efficiency and providing a more natural braking feel, which is crucial for safety in fleet operations.

5. Enhanced Traction with Multi-Terrain Select

The HiLux variants equipped with V-Active technology feature Multi-Terrain Select with six modes that enhance wheel traction on various surfaces. This is invaluable for fleets that operate in diverse terrain conditions, ensuring safety and stability.


Additional Upgrades and Features

Alongside V-Active technology, the upgraded HiLux range also boasts refreshed exterior styling and new features aimed at increasing convenience and safety. These include:

  • Visual Enhancements: New front bumpers, honeycomb mesh grille, and dark-finished LED headlamps for an updated, rugged look.
  • Increased Convenience: Tailgate damper with lift assist and the addition of front and rear parking sensors on specific models improve usability and safety.
  • Connectivity Upgrades: Wireless charger and dual rear USB-C ports ensure that drivers stay connected and devices are charged during long trips.

Pricing and Availability

The Toyota HiLux with V-Active technology starts at a price premium of just $590* offering tremendous value with significant enhancements. This range is now available at Downtown Toyota, with various configurations to suit every fleet need.
