Hot on the heels of its special-edition Fortuner, Toyota has launched another limited model, this time of its best-selling bakkie - the Toyota Hilux Dakar Edition.

The range celebrates the stellar performance of the Hilux in the 2013 Dakar Rally and the announcement of the new Dakar model coincides with Toyota SA’s Dakar team for the 2014 event.

The Dakar edition will only be available from July 01 to September 30 2013 on Raider models but of all body types (Single, Xtra and Double Cab).

'ATTRACTIVE PROPOSITION'

Kerry Roodt, general manager of Toyota SA, said: “I'm delighted that we have announced the arrival of the Dakar Edition, which offers a fresh approach to our tough Hilux range.

“Its combination of bold, rugged looks with a high level of standard equipment makes it an attractive proposition for the style- and value-conscious buyer.”

Exterior enhancements include stainless-steel nudge bar, rear styling and door steps with a Dakar logo. Other style tweaks include a rear bumper with towhitch, a black load-bay cover and grey alloy rims. The model also benefits from body coloured mirrors and door releases as well as Dakar badging.

The interior is enhanced with black leather seats with red stitching, leather door inserts, black carpets and a reversing camera (Xtra Cab and Double Cab).
