Hello

the Hilux is meant for towing, even the smaller engine variants will pull quite a heavy load

how much weight do you want to tow?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

At the most 3500 kgs and not everyday but maybe couple Times a week in summer and autumn. Im sure the 3.0 hilux 171 bhp is capable but just wondered with it being around 20 bhp less than the land cruiser would I really notice it? Thanks

Hello

the only Hilux rated to 3500Kg ( braked) is the D-max version
so the 2.5 ltr turbo diesel ( 169Bhp) is the one to go for as it can pull 700 Kg more than the 3.0 ltr petrol
