Junkyard Find: 1978 Toyota Truck

The Toyota Hilux pickup truck first hit the streets in 1968, shoving aside flimsier trucks based on the Corona and Crown within a few years. While the Hilux (or “Hylux”) name got a bit of marketing use by Toyota in North America, this truck was known here as, simply, the Truck. I found this well-worn-but-unrusted […] The post Junkyard Find: 1978 Toyota Truck appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

A Passion For Cars: Talking With AutoWise.com Founder Chris Riley

You might find this hard to believe, but true, dyed-in-the-wool gearheads are a dying breed. This explains why older cars and vintage automobiles are growing in popularity as we speak. It might have to do with the nostalgic appeal and analog feel, but it stems from the fact that old cars are easy to fix and easier to modify, not to mention working on older vehicles is the perfect breeding ground for the next generation of gearheads. Here at Automoblog, we welcome the opportunity to connect with ...

Toyota Hilux Invincible 50 Black Edition Marks Half a Century of Toughness

The new Toyota Hilux Invincible 50 Black Edition celebrates that and the 50th anniversary of the truck.  The Hilux earned its invincible reputation not based on the company’s claims, but real world tests.

For years, the Americans have been in love with one of the most popular pickup trucks ever to hit the auto market, the Toyota Hilux.

Junkyard Find: 1981 Toyota Pickup, Scrap Hunter Edition

The third-generation Toyota Hilux, sold in the United States as the Toyota Truck or Toyota Pickup (remember, this is the extremely un-frivolous company that, even today, sells a luxury sedan called the LS), achieved legend status very early in its career.

With the new product expected to look similar to the crossover-based Santa Cruz pickup truck concept we first saw back in 2015, it was exciting news.

Toyota Hilux “Invincible 50” Celebrates 50 Years of Success

Toyota Hilux pickup trucks are legendary for the durability and reliability they have demonstrated around the world since 1968. In the U.S., the Hilux name was dropped in the mid-1970s in favor of simply “pickup” until the arrival of the Tacoma name in 1995. The current Hilux shares some things in common with the U.S.-market Tacoma, but for the most part it’s a completely different truck. But the Hilux (or HiLux in Australia) is the Toyota pickup the rest of the world knows and loves. To celeb...
