Toyota Hilux Rogue 2023: October release date for upgraded Hilux flagship with no price change


Toyota has managed to maintain the cost of the Hilux Rogue at $70,200 before on-road costs, despite new adding new features

Toyota Australia has today announced pricing for the 2023 Toyota Hilux Rogue – and it’s the same as before despite Toyota adding more features. 

The flagship of the Hilux range until the new GR Sport grade arrives, the Rogue variant is now fitted with higher-riding suspension, a wider track and upgraded brakes have all been added to the Toyota Hilux Rogue for 2023. 

Toyota says that the updated Hilux Rogue model will be released in Australia in October 2022.

What’s new for the Toyota Hilux Rogue in 2023?

The front and rear track of the Hilux Rogue has been increased by 140mm and ride height has also increased by 20mm.

Toyota has worked to change the suspension setup of the Rogue by adding a rear stabiliser bar for the first time, along with moving the rear dampers outwards toward the wheels. 

You’ll be able to tell the new Rogue apart from the rest of the Hilux range thanks to wider wheel arches and mudguards and new 18-inch alloy wheels.

The Rogue retains features such as the automatic roller cover, marine-grade carpet in the tray and resin sports bar.

Toyota has also replaced the rear drum brakes with ventilated discs in a bid to make the Hilux Rogue stop better than before. 

Standard specifications of the updated Hilux Rogue 

The Hilux Rogue for 2023 includes heated leather front seats, surround-view monitor, a nine-speaker sound system, an integrated trailer wiring harness and a tow ball.

The Rogue will retain the 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine found elsewhere in the Hilux range that makes 150kW/500Nm and is mated, in this case, to a six-speed automatic transmission. 

The Rogue will be available with several colours including glacier white, frosted white, silver sky, graphite, eclipse black, nebula blue, feverish red, saturn blue and oxide bronze. 

What about the Rugged X Hilux?

The outgoing Hilux Rugged X will be replaced by a GR Sport

The Toyota Hilux Rugged X will be replaced by the new Hilux GR Sport that will become the flagship Hilux offering here in Australia. 

Toyota has called this new Hilux a “hardcore halo variant” and it will be launching locally during the second half of 2023. 

This apex model is very likely to take on the Ford Ranger and Ranger Raptor variants when it goes on sale.

Chasing Cars has previously speculated that the Toyota Hilux GR Sport could be fitted with either the 3.3-litre twin-turbo diesel V6 engine from the Land Cruiser 300 Series or even the 3.4-litre twin-turbo petrol V6 engine from the Toyota Tundra

However, information on the powertrain is yet to be revealed by Toyota Australia, but will definitely happen in the months leading up to the launch. 

The Toyota Hilux GR Sport could be pretty cool looking, too, with pumped up suspension, wider wheel arches and bright paintwork.
