The Ford Ranger Raptor diesel supposed to pack more punch.
If Toyota announced that any single vehicle in the range will make high-performance models, not joking around. This just over a year ago and the company said last month that the GR and TRD value sub-brands could coexist peacefully. Yet how serious is Toyota to unleash hot versions in those that it sells? Quite bad. Just look at their Japanese GR-badged product range, so with everything from a Prius to a Noah minivan.
Also, the Hilux even got amped-up treatment. Thanks to a limited-run GR Sport version with improvements in styling and suspension, but the best is yet to come. A meaner version of the GR has already identified. And now we may be able to see what the counterpart of the Ford Ranger Raptor would carry under the hood.
The pickup truck is expected to get an all-new V6 turbodiesel. According to a study published by the Australian magazine Cars Guide. The torquey engine expected to make its debut in the Land Cruiser 300 Series of the next generation, so it will use in other Toyota models to reduce the growth which manufacturing costs.
How much power the latest diesel V6 will produce remains a mystery at this point. But Cars Guide assumes it will equal at least the 268 hp (200 kilowatts). And 650 Newton-meters (479 pound-feet) torque produced by the existing 4.5-liter V8 diesel engine.
The Hilux will move to the next generation in 2023 and could combine with the Tacoma as one global platform. According to our Toyota source. It expected that the speculated GR version will appear during the new iteration of the car. So it would be fascinating to see if it ends up as a limited edition like the GR Sport or a standard trim level above everything else.
