The Toyota Hilux is expected to have similar features like the Toyota Fortuner because it's images tell that it's inspired from the Fortuner and Innova. Some pickups like Bolero pickup are offered for commercial use in India however it's expected that Hilux can be a game changer in pickup truck segment.  Interior does sound amazing and surely one will like the car very much. Quality products is what one should buy and Toyota should consider quality products atleast in premium segment. 

Toyota Hilux Engine options

This would get the same 2.8-liter diesel engine like the Fortuner

The 2.8-liter engine has a lot of gain in terms of the power and torque output as it was earlier not very fun to drive but surely it gained the fun now amongst competitors. It's expected that the 500 Newton Metres of torque that Toyota has in Fortuner would there in the Hilux too as a capable pickup truck should surely a peppy diesel engine. A 2.7-petrol could also be offered however the diesel would sell more as people in India love off-road capable vehicles with a diesel engine due to their low end torque. A 6-speed Automatic and 6-speed manual will probably be offered with the Pickup truck. Like the Fortuner, a 4-wheel drive system will surely be offered if we get this capable vehicle in India.
