Thailand, Dubai, Australia and UK's Top Exporter of new used Diesel 4x4 pickup, cars, SUV. Facebook Fan Page
Toyota Hilux Tiger was one of the top selling pickup of its time until release of Toyota Hilux Vigo broke all previous records of sales and emerged as world's best selling diesel 4x4 pickup. The Hilux Tiger was based on the Japanese market Hilux and is nearly identical in every way. Thailand plant was the first non-Japanese plant where Toyota began to produce Toyota branded vehicles from in the 1950s. By this generation, Toyota was producing hundreds of thousands of vehicle, including Hilux Tigers, per year, with many Hiluxs actually being exported to other countries. After 1997, even Australia started to receive Thailand made Hilux Tigers, although they aren't called Tigers in non-SE Asian markets. Of course by the time Toyota Hilux Vigocame into being, Toyota was shipping Hilux Vigo all over the world including Australia.
When Toyota elected to update the Toyota Hilux for the 1998 model year, it did much more than that. The '98 through current Hilux body style and interior were all new and so was the front suspension. Actually, the frame and front suspension were not new at all. For the Hilux, Toyota used the same torsion bar IFS frame and suspension used on the older North American Toyotas built from 1986 through 1995.
The 2001 model is TOYOTA SR5 3.0 L EFI Engine, 4 doors, 4x4 Manual Transmission, and standard options are, Driver-side airbag, ABS Brakes, Power Steering, Power Windows, Electric Side Mirrors, Cassette Player/Radio AM FM, Fabric Seatings and A/C. If you are looking for Toyota Hilux Tiger D4D that reigned the roost from 2002 to 2004 until Vigo acquired its crown please check our page on Toyota Hilux Tiger D4D page.
Here is a small sampling of some of the Toyota Hilux Tiger EFI we have exported recently.
Here is a review of Toyota Hilux 2002 by an Australian reviewer. Since Australian Hilux was manufactured in Thailand, most of the comments rae relevant to Thailand Toyota Tiger.
