This All New Hilux Full Change Model Revo will be a major change model and is expected May of 2015. On the left is a view of Toyota factory where Toyota Hilux Revo is ready to be shipped. This Full Change is expected to be a full size model. The Next Generation 2016 Toyota Hilux Vigo looks very curvaceous and a new re-think of Hilux traditional look. The grill in front will be two slimmer horizontal bars going all the way to the headlights, the rear curves inward much like Triton.
Rear bumper is much nicer looking and side step is more discreet. Bonnet has a more advanced lift. Both its cabin and bed are bigger in length and width making ait an almost full size pickup truck. Not only will it be more spacious in the front you can now carry more load in the back. Luxuriousness and comfort of the cabin will also increase. It will have higher horsepower and torque. Hybrid version cannot be that far away.
The reshaped side window line incorporates a kicked-back C-pillar and the A-pillars also appear to flow into the bonnet line more smoothly. There is a new-look front end with redesigned headlights with LED daytime running lights DRLs, a bold Toyota-signature lower air intake and a slightly different rear-end with re-profiled bumpers.
On the left is the picture of new pickup's dashboard. Large touchscreen on the center console makes it look like a car's console than an average pickup truck. Digital meter and steering are also good looking.
Toyota is unveiling 2015 Toyota Tacoma in Detroit in January 2015 and many analysts will try to figure out if any of the changes introduced in Tacoma will be brought over to Hilux. Toyota denies this but one can only ve certain once the new model Hilux is released.
2014 Toyota Hilux Next Generation Minor Change model is available now at Jim Autos. Now 8th Generation Major Change Hilux is expected to be released in late 2014 or early 2015 as 2015 Major Change Model. Toyota Hilux Vigo remains world's best selling pickup truck so Toyota can chose to play it safe in 2014 and only released a minor change model. 2015 Next Model will by all accounts be a major change new model which will completely overhaul Toyota Hilux's interiors and exteriors and will give it a fresh new look. It will be a cross between Toyota Highlander and Volkswagen Amarok. Some features will also remind one of Toyota Kluger. side window line incorporates a kicked-back C-pillar and the A-pillars also appear to flow into the bonnet line more smoothly. There are more significant differences to surface design, including a new-look front end with redesigned headlights, a bold Toyota-signature lower air intake and a slightly different rear-end with re-profiled bumpers.
Toyota has seen all the recent changes made in 2015 Ford Ranger especially in Wildtrak model and 2015 Mazda BT-50 All New BT-50, 2015 Nissan Navara NP-300 and 2015 Isuzu Dmax. It is expected that it has kept all these new trucks in mind when creating the 2015 Next Generation Hilux. 2015 Mitsubishi L200 Triton has been released.

Toyota Australia, Toyota Thailand and Toyota Japan come together to build All-New Toyota Hilux 2015 Model Vigo
This time around Toyota is making a big push to involve as many of its R&D teams as it can. More importantly engineers of Toyota Australia will play an important role in design of 2015 Toyota Hilux. Next Model Toyota Hilux 2014 2015 Spy Shots and Next Model Toyota Fortuner 2014 2015 Spyshots of Hilux 2015 will be available as soon as available.

It is expected that all versions of Hilux: Hilux Vigo, Hilux Invincible, Hilux SR and Hilux SR5 will experience this facelift. It is not know if the name Toyota Hilux Vigo Champ will still be with us. Vigo Champ designation was not particularly popular with the customers so perhaps they will retire it in favour of a new designation.
Toyota Australia Technical Centre, in Notting Hill near Melbourne will be in charge of chassis tuning for next generation HiLux pickup trucks destined for the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Some of the items they will be overseeing are ride and handling tuning, along with the integration of ESC and other new-age chassis aids across all models for the first time in HiLux. There are also rumours of an AWD model but we won't hold our breath for it.
Toyota Hilux Revo 2015 built on TNGA and IMV-II
So far Toyota Hilux Vigo was built on IMV and early development of Hilux 2015 Major Change Model has been on IMV-II platform. Now that Toyota has released its new Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) Platform, Hilux will also benefit from this standardization across Toyota's product lines. All major manufacturers are now standardizing on a common platform, all future Volkswagen will be built on MQB platform and Nissan on V-platform
