Raptor: be careful, New Toyota Hilux Arctic Trucks AT35 breaks cover…

The people over at Arctic Trucks have uncovered their interpretation of the invigorated Toyota Hilux, giving the well known bakkie a broad cluster of updates.

Uncovered in the United Kingdom, the new Hilux Arctic Trucks AT35 depends on that market’s “Strong X” twofold taxi variation yet gains body, suspension and dealing with updates the organization guarantees convey “much more prominent rough terrain abilities”.

Anyway, does this model have the stuff to match the Ford Ranger Raptor? All things considered, the Hilux AT35 acquires a 65 mm increment its running ground leeway (to 375 mm), while its methodology and flight points improve by nine and three degrees (to 38 and 29), separately.

Cold Trucks says the vehicle’s edge, internal curves and bodywork have all been re-designed, while 17-inch Arctic Trucks compounds enclosed by 35-inch BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain tires have been fitted.

The Arctic Trucks Bilstein execution suspension framework highlights front springs and dampers, against move bar change and back dampers with broadened shackles. This delivers an additional 40 mm of front and 20 mm of back suspension lift. Force and “drivability”, then, have been “streamlined” with the re-outfitting of the front and back differentials.

The organization has besides fitted a back bar with an incorporated two-inch recipient hitch. The styling updates incorporate the organization’s mark “flare bundle” for the front and back wings, alongside expanded profile evades, “AT35” badging and a “30th commemoration” decal.

The most recent 150 kW/500 N.m form of Toyota’s 2,8-liter turbodiesel motor extends unaltered, alongside the company’s six-speed programmed transmission. The Hilux Arctic Trucks AT35 is accessible to arrange from Toyota retailers in the UK, with a pre-VAT change cost of £18 780 (around R385 000 … barring the base cost of the bakkie, obviously).
