At this point, Toyota Motor Philippines' IMV line probably has the oldest SUV and pickup models in the country. Even Isuzu's D-Max and Alterra (now MU-X) models--relentlessly pilloried on this website and on social media about being outdated--are now sporting all-new bodies. But age hasn't slowed the sales of the Fortuner and Hilux. In fact, TMP is selling more of them than ever.

IMV sales should hit a new high this year, because this week at the Philippine International Motor Show, TMP will reveal a refreshed Fortuner and Hilux TRD. The Japanese carmaker's midsize SUV gets cosmetic tweaks and a new silver metallic color, while its pickup will get a new variant equipped with a macho TRD kit.

Top Gear Philippines was able to snag an exclusive shoot with the new Fortuner and Hilux. We think they look better than ever.
