The Toyota Hilux pickups will be launched on January 23 in India, and bookings have already begun for the vehicle. The price of the pickup varies depending on the dealer between Rs 50,000 and Rs 2 lakh. The Hilux marks Toyota’s entry into the lifestyle pickup truck market, where the only legitimate competition is the Isuzu D-Max.
