A – Motor Trend – Toyota’s $10,000 Pickup Truck
Countries around the world get the Toyota Hilux pickup. MSRP is $15,200 to start. Turns out that is a bit too spendy for some markets.
The Toyota IMV 0 intends to fill in that low-cost space beneath the Hilux with a target starting price of $10,000.
It made its debut at the 2023 Japan Mobility Show, wearing cool Land Cruiser 70 Series style.
Toyota has rethought every inch if this truck with an eye toward cost optimization and delivering everything that’s absolutely necessary and nothing that’s not. The development team even invited upfitters from around the globe to weigh in on how to better optimize the chassis and cab for to prepare them for aftermarket builds.
Here is what’s included & what’s been left out:
All flat glazing for the windshield, side, and rear windows
Flatbed with no sides as standard, with a limited number of upgrades like the drop-side model we drove
No anti-lock braking, but a load-sensitive proportioning valve is standard, and ABS will be optional (Hilux’s standard ABS makes it difficult for upfitters to install heavier-duty rear axles)
No airbags (these will also be optionally available or standard in some markets)
No armrests, just door pockets that double as door pulls
Crank windows
Plastic and rubber galore inside
Hilux control-arm, coil-sprung front/leaf-sprung rear chassis easily upgraded for higher GVWR
Exact powertrain specs have not been disclosed, but we presume our example was fitted with the Hilux’s entry 2.0-liter 139-hp four-cylinder gas engine and a five-speed manual transmission. (We’re guessing the diesel will be the 2.4-liter 150-hp Hilux unit, but several engines are likely to be offered.)
Don’t bet on the IMV 0 name to make production. Some believe Hilux Champ could be the actual name.

Robert: patriot patch
I would love to get a 4 link kit from western Canadian Rockwell for my Blazer. I’m about done with these Chevy 63s lol. Oh, and some Fuel gift cards.

Flint: sema swag
My list would include a holley terminator x max, to control and tune the ls swap I’m going to swap into the blazer buggy. That or maybe some fresh rubber for my beadlocks. The 40″ pitbull growlers are ripped up on every sidewall, but still hold air (for a few hours) and get good enough traction. I’ve been enjoying the podcast. It needs more full size content but that’s alright😂 I attached some pictures of my rigs for fun.

A Warn recovery gear kit/bag would be awesome!

Cavan: 4 patriots
For Christmas I want a 12k Warn winch and a dual transfer case for my 1980 Toyota pickup.
