Toyota Hilux Invincible 50 2018: prices and specification

Limited-edition Toyota Hilux celebrates 50 years of the famous pickup truck; available to order now

Toyota is celebrating 50 years of its most successful pickup with this, the Toyota Hilux Invincible 50 limited edition. Just 50 UK customers will be able to get their hands on an individually numbered example; order books open today (1 November), with the limited-run pickup priced at £39,995 on the road. Toyota expects deliveries from December through to early 2019.

Engineered in partnership with Iceland-based specialists Arctic Trucks, the Hilux Invincible 50 has been designed to celebrate the Hilux’s historical achievements, including trips to the North and South poles, and the scaling of volcanoes.

The most noticeable change is a set of huge BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres mounted on special satin black 16-inch alloy wheels with a machined lip. Ground clearance has increased by 40mm at the front and 20mm at the rear, improving off-road articulation, approach and departure angles to tackle even tougher terrain.

To accommodate the changes, wider front and rear wings have been attached, while a double-hoop roll bar improves safety and provides a mounting point for a row of four Vision-X lights, boosting vision ahead once you turn off-road.

Other tempting kit includes Arctic Trucks mudflaps, rear parking sensors, a Line-X cargo bed liner, Toyota tailgate graphic and a smattering of Invincible 50 badges. All 50 will be finished in the same black paintwork.

The Invincible 50 is based on the specification of the double-cab Hilux Invincible trim, and there’s the same 148bhp 2.4-litre diesel under the bonnet, so it won't be quite as powerful as the upcoming Ford Ranger Raptor. Toyota Safety Sense with autonomous emergency braking comes as standard, along with lane departure warning, traffic-sign recognition and automatic headlights. The Toyota Touch 2 infotainment system is fitted inside, as well as automatic air conditioning, keyless entry and privacy glass.
