The 2023 Toyota Hilux GR Sport is a new pinnacle of the Hilux pick-up range. Unlike the original Hilux truck, the forthcoming GR Sport is designed to attract the attention of those customers who are looking for more adventure travel and sports activities.

The Toyota Hilux GR Sport will look way sporty and it will get a special suspension system enhancement, providing an even better driving experience. Basically, over the original model, the Sport version will get numerous exclusive exterior and interior design details that should enhance the vehicle’s appeal. On top of that, the forthcoming GR SPORT truck will use a powerful 2.8-liter engine that delivers 204 hp.

The 2023 Toyota Hilux GR Sport is an upcoming truck that looks really sporty. Unlike the original version, the GR Sport boosts the design of Hilux on the higher level. The black front grille looks way more attractive than the traditional one, and we like the unique G-shaped, stylized mesh grille with the classically placed TOYOTA brand logo.

The strong design continuous with a larger frame of the front fog lights and with 17-inch contrasting black-and-gray alloy wheels equipped with all-terrain tires. On top of that, the black theme has been extended to the mirror housings, side sills, fenders, and on door handles of the cargo space. As we mentioned, the GR Sport comes with specially designed suspension and bright red shock absorbers.

Sporty Interior Design

The cabin of the upcoming 2023 Toyota Hilux GR Sport pickup truck is way more modern than the original Hilux. It features sporty front seats in a combination of black leather and synthetic suede, with red perforations and contrasting stitching. The GR SPORT logo is everywhere around including seat backs, carpet traps, and on the start button. We love an updated 8-inch information screen, which comes with way better graphics.

We also noticed a new aluminum sports pedals that give this truck an enhanced look. The decorative inserts in the style of carbon fiber are also visible, giving the truck a sportier look. On top of that, there is a decorative red line across the instrument panel and blue lighting of the doors.

Unfortunately, at this moment, we don’t know how much this model will cost. The current Hilux starts at $26,000 for the base trim, and it can go up to $90,000.

We believe the Hilux GR Sport will be around $50,000, which is more than any of its rivals including the Ford Ranger Raptor. The current Raptor starts at $44k, and it offers great value for invested money.
