Following its grand reveal last fall, the 2024 Toyota Hilux has hit the market in the United Kingdom, headlined by the GR Sport II grade, promising an increased driving experience. However, potential customers may find the performance underwhelming compared to other GR Sport models.

Unlike its performance-focused counterparts, such as the Yaris and Corolla, the 2024 Toyota Hilux GR Sport II prioritizes aesthetics over additional power.

Powered by a 2.8-liter diesel engine producing 201 hp and 369 pound-feet of torque, the GR Sport II features a standard four-wheel drive system and a six-speed automatic transmission. Toyota emphasizes its best-in-class towing rating and payload capacity, coupled with wider tracks, enhanced ground clearance, reduced roll angle, and improved steering precision.

Visually, the 2024 Toyota Hilux GR Sport II sports a distinctive appearance with black accents, including a black grille adorned with Toyota lettering, black fender flares, and black elements throughout the exterior. Inside, the black monochrome theme is complemented by red accents, aluminum pedals, paddle shifters, and sports seats upholstered in black synthetic suede and leather.

Equipped with the Toyota Smart Connect+ multimedia system and an 8-inch touchscreen display, the Hilux GR Sport II offers wireless Apple CarPlay, wired Android Auto, cloud-based navigation, JBL audio, and over-the-air updates. With deliveries slated to commence later this year, the Hilux GR Sport II starts at £49,750 in the United Kingdom, positioning it against rivals like the Ford Ranger Raptor.
