Celebrating the launch of the new 2012 Toyota Hilux with Toyota’s global network

2012 Hilux

While we still have a little while to wait until the new 2012 Toyota Hilux launches here in the UK, our friends Toyota Australia, Toyota New Zealand and Toyota South Africa have kicked off their advertising campaigns for this all-conquering, ‘indestructible’ 4×4 pick-up.

Click on the videos below, and let us know which of these very funny ads is your favourite.

Toyota Australia – ‘Unbreakable’


Toyota New Zealand – ‘Tougher Than You Can Imagine’


Toyota South Africa – ‘Toughness Rubs Off”


The 2012 Hilux goes on sale in the UK in October, priced from £16,090 CV on-the-road.


    1. Hi Omar,

      Sorry for the late reply I was investigating this for you. The wiring system will have changed in the new Hilux model and unfortunately I am unable to identify the exact variations. However, your parking heater fitters can find more technical information on the Hilux wiring systems here: http://www.toyota-tech.eu

  1. Now that I’ve taken delivery of my new Hilux (and I’m very pleased with it), is there any information as to when the Touch&Go apps (fuel prices, etc) will become available?

  2. Hi,
    Dab is available as an option on the touch and go equipped yaris
    My local Center tells me there is no option for a touch and go equipped hilux

    Is that really true ?
    If it is why is that ? Is it not the same system that is in the yaris ?
    Are there plans to offer dab as an option on the 2012 hilux ?

    1. Hi Robert,
      Wonderful many thanks for the quick reply.
      Do you have a part number I can pass to my local Toyota centre? Do you know how much it will cost?
      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
      Thanks for all your help

      1. Hi Paul,

        The part number for the 2012 Hilux Touch & Go system is: PZ490-00330-00. Your local Toyota Centre will be able to confirm the price including fitting.

        We hope you have a Merry Christmas also.

      2. Hi Robert,
        I have now ordered my Hilux 2012.
        However my local Toyota Centre tells me DAB is not available to order for the Hilux yet.

        Apparently the DAB module has to be specifically certified for use on the Hilux.

        At the moment they have no information on when this certification will take place, would you be able to find out when DAB will be available to order for the Hilux 2012?


      3. Hi Ollie,
        Its been a few weeks now, I was just wondering if there was any news on DAB.

        Do you have an email address I can contact you on directly?

  3. Hi Paul,
    Thanks for your question. DAB modules have to be certified for use on the Hilux; we don’t currently know when this is available to order, but will endeavour to find out and get back to you shortly.

  4. Hi Paul

    There has been no further announcements regarding the DAB certification, it’s still on-going situation. Apologies that I can’t bring you any further updates, as soon as I find out more I’ll let you know!


  5. Is dab going to be offered for the HILUX? I have currently taken delivery of a 2014 hilux and would like to add dab onto it.

    1. Hi Ryan
      Thanks for your post.
      DAB is available as an accessory item for your Hilux and your dealer will have more information regarding this. It is called a DAB retrofit module. If you have any problems though or need further help please let us know.
