Toyota Hilux Heavy Duty: Would It Be An Innovative Idea?

It's hard to believe this idea has never come up before. A Heavy Duty version of a compact pickup truck like the Toyota Hilux looks strange at first glance

But also incredibly attractive. Imagine: all the robustness and towing capacity of a HD pickup truck, but in a vehicle the size of a Tacoma.

Who could refuse such a proposal?

Of course, many may turn up their noses at such a concept. After all, what makes a HD pickup truck truly special

It's not just its towing capacity or its strength, but also its versatility to carry bulky loads.

The huge bed of a pickup truck is often used to its fullest, and even if we extended the limits a little on models like the Hilux or Tacoma

They still wouldn't offer the practicality of an F-250 Super Duty or a Silverado 2500 HD.

In the United States, there is a diverse range of heavy pickups to choose.

In addition to the popular Ford and Chevy, there is also the Ram HD, GMC Sierra 2500 HD and Nissan Titan XD.

Interestingly, Toyota does not have a Heavy Duty model in its lineup. pickup trucks, as the Tundra is considered a Light Duty option only.
