The Hilux Legend 50's sure-footed off-road traction and advanced 4x4 features enable it to take on even the most extreme of terrains, while always keeping you in control. The 2.8 GD-6 turbodiesel engine produces peak torque of 420 Nm at 1 400-2 600 r/min when fitted with its 6-speed manual transmission ' ideal for overtaking or towing. Things are even better with the 6-speed automatic transmission, where the 2.8 GD-6 engine offers 450 Nm at 1 600-2 400 r/min. Maximum power is rated at 130 kW @ 3 400 r/min for both transmissions.
While toughness comes standard on all Hiluxes, the Legend 50 also exclusively sports an accentuated black interior trim, perforated partial leather seats and a high-gloss black instrument panel. Air conditioning takes care of the worst temperature extremities, while the easy-grip, four-spoke leather steering wheel is fitted with switches to control your information display, mobile phone and audio.
What sets the Hilux GR-Sport apart is that its suspension has been specially uprated for improved high-speed handling on all tar and gravel surfaces. Stronger shock absorbers are fitted all-round for increased damping, while the front springs are also stiffer, for a sportier ride and sharper turning response. For ease of use, all 4x4 drive modes ' 4WD, 4WD LOW and 2WD ' can be engaged by the simple turn of a button on the centre console.
