The new Rogue, which is now the flagship of the HiLux range, is available only with Toyota's ubiquitous 2.8-litre turbo-diesel and six-speed torque converter automatic for a list price of $70,200 plus ORCs, meaning the latest chassis and body enhancements have not resulted in a price increase.
In addition to these changes (see Design) it's equipped with new 18-inch alloys and 265/60 R18 tyres with a full-size spare and retains unique standard luxury features including a locally developed motorised roller-cover which is integrated with the vehicle’s central-locking system.
It includes an anti-jam function, integrated LED tub lighting and high levels of weather and dust protection for the load tub, which is fully lined with marine carpet. There’s also a stylish composite sports bar/rear window shade and 3.5-tonne tow-bar and wiring harness.
Inside are heated front seats with perforated leather-accented trim and eight-way power adjustment for the driver. There’s also a multi-info driver’s display and a premium nine-speaker JBL audio system, controlled by an 8.0-inch central multimedia touchscreen offering multiple connectivity including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, DAB digital radio and more.
