A year with Toyota’s Hilux double-cab
Near the end of 2015 I received an invitation to drive the new Toyota Hilux. In Iceland.
A quick wardrobe upgrade at the local outdoor mart and I was ready to be folded into a shiny red double cab in the land where everything’s name features a 10:1 consonant to vowel ratio. Iceland, where I’d roll over everything from lava fields to river beds, hot springs to volcanic valleys in the 2.8 GD-6 4×4.
I came back from that trip lusting for a long-term relationship with a new Hilux and just four months later I had one on test in 2016. But that was nine months ago, and now (2017) that it’s close to its return date, I can’t help but reflect on my hassle-free user experience. This is that.
