Top Gear Philippines

The Toyota Hilux Conquest is officially out. The Japanese carmaker introduced the new variant of its popular pickup offering last night, showing off a more rugged body kit with a handful of sporty accents and an attractive new 'Nebula Blue' paint finish.

The Conquest will run on the same powertrains as regular Hilux variants. We're talking a 2.8-liter diesel mated to either a six-speed automatic transmission (174hp and 450Nm) or a six-speed manual (174hp and 420Nm) for the 4x4 units, and a 2.4-liter diesel (147hp and 400Nm) with the same transmission options for the 4x2.

Dimensions aren't any different from the normal Hilux units, but the Conquest does boast larger 18-inch alloys. As mentioned before, it gets a new honeycomb grille design up front flanked by new LED headlights with DRLs. You'll also notice a more aggressive lower fascia with new foglight housings, some matte plastic surrounding the taillights, and a new roll bar.

In case you missed it, here are the vehicle's prices:

*4x4 2.8 AT: P1,745,000

*4x4 2.8 MT: P1,615,000

*4x2 2.4 AT: P1,386,000

*4x2 2.4 MT: P1,311,000

If the thought of a more intimidating Hilux appeals to you, you're going to love the Conquest. You can check out more of the pickup truck in the photos below.
