Toyota HiLux Rogue pricing, specs, and performance
Toyota HiLux Rogue pricing
Despite some key mechanical upgrades that revolve around the way the 2022 Toyota HiLux Rogue drives, it remains priced at $70,200 plus on-road costs.
Key standard exterior equipment includes a resin sports bar and a powered roll-top for the tray, which is also trimmed in swish marine-grade carpet rather than the usual plastic tub liner.
Inside there are heated front seats with perforated leather-accented upholstery and eight-way power adjustment, dual-zone climate control with adjustable rear air-con outlets and a 220V three-pin outlet in the centre lidded bin.
A nine-speaker JBL audio system is standard, but some buyers could be offered a $750 discount to cop a six-speaker sound system. This is because of the global microchip shortage.
Currently, the Rogue is the flagship of the entire HiLux line-up and that pitches it up against some tough competition including the Ford Ranger Wildtrak, the Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain and the Nissan Navara PRO-4X Warrior.
The Rogue comes with a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty and a capped price servicing plan that will cost no more than $260 per service scheduled over the first three years. However, intervals are a short six months/10,000km.
Toyota HiLux Rogue specs
The 2022 Toyota HiLux Rogue has a familiar powertrain that comprises a 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, six-speed automatic transmission and part time 4x4 drive system that runs in rear-wheel drive on bitumen, can engage all four wheels on slippery surfaces and drop into low range for the gnarly stuff.
This is not a cutting-edge drivetrain. It doesn’t accelerate all that powerfully and it is a bit rattly, especially when cold. And it’s been further exposed by the smooth, silent engines in the latest Ford Ranger.
The six-speed auto is a willing and able accomplice, extracting the best it can from the engine.
