Default NA V6, 207kw, 351NM, RWD, 6 speed Manual $39K

The new Toyota Hiace!
This would be a great vehicle for carting the dirtbike (and everything else) around.

https://performancedrive.com.au/2020...v6-2-8td-3121/



The final engine specs have been confirmed for the 2020 Toyota HiAce, including for the powerful new V6 petrol option. It comes in as the most powerful commercial van in the segment.

Letís talk about that V6 first. Toyota is offering the new model with a 3.5-litre naturally aspirated V6 petrol engine for the first time. It produces an impressive (for a van) 207kW and 351Nm. You can be assured deliveries will always be on time now. And on that note, white vans will be even closer to your rear bumper bar on the highway.

No 0-100km/h times or anything like that have been claimed by Toyota, but weíll try and get together a review for you and perform one of our video tests as soon as we can. Interestingly, buyers are offered either a six-speed auto or six-speed manual.

Also new to the range is a 2.8-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder. Itís borrowed from the HiLux and the such, and carries over the 130kW and 450Nm outputs (120kW for Commuter, and 420Nm for all manual versions). This is an increase of 30kW and a whopping 150Nm over the outgoing 3.0-litre turbo-diesel. This, too, should be a great performer in the commercial van ranks. Fuel economy on the combined cycle stands at 7.5L/100km for the manual in LWB form, and 8.2L/100km for the auto LWB.

As previously confirmed, Toyota Australia is offering five main body styles for the 2020 HiAce, including LWB, LWB Crew, SLWB, Commuter and Commuter GL. All come with a 7.0-inch touch-screen media interface packed with USB, Bluetooth, aux-in, digital radio, sat-nav, and SUNA live traffic updates, all as standard. Android Auto and Apple CayPlay will be available from the fourth quarter this year.

All models are covered by a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty, with capped-price servicing for three years or 60,000km, whichever comes first. Speaking about the new model, Toyota Australia vice president of sales and marketing, Sean Hanley, said:

ďWe focused on making the new-generation vehicle an even better tool of trade through an all-new semi-bonneted design, increased performance, a quiet cabin, smooth ride and improved handling and agility. Its impressive carrying capacity is even more flexible and user-friendly with increased internal width, and increased height on LWB versions, and dual sliding side doors on van models which, for the SLWB variants, can take a standard Australian pallet.Ē

The new model is on sale now from the following prices (excludes on-road costs):

2020 Toyota HiAce LWB 3.5 V6 manual: $38,640
2020 Toyota HiAce LWB 3.5 V6 auto: $40,640
2020 Toyota HiAce LWB 2.8TD auto: $$42,140
2020 Toyota HiAce LWB 2.8TD auto: $44,140

2020 Toyota HiAce LWB crew 2.8TD auto: $47,140

2020 Toyota HiAce SLWB 3.5 V6 auto: $48,640
2020 Toyota HiAce SLWB 2.8TD auto: $52,140

2020 Toyota HiAce Commuter 2.8TD auto: $67,140
2020 Toyota HiAce Commuter GL 2.8TD auto: $70,140

While far less glamorous then say pony cars, to some of us who's businesses earn money using LCV's it will be interesting to see how the mid size van market pans out now that more models/versions are heading our way.

Toyota finally pulled it's finger out and has improved the Hiace, in particular driver safety and dynamics. How it got away with the last model for so long is staggering. I also wonder if going to a much larger sized van effects future sales.

Renault Trafic jumps to over 120kw with a new 2.0L and first time auto (DSG-type) in it's next update due possibly later this year.

Ford Transit Custom Sport in van and and DCIV "crewvan" with 136kW diesel due last quarter of this year....and GT style stripes

Updated VW Transporter T6.1 on the way as well.

Only leaves MB Vito and Hyundai iLoad dragging their feet.

Reminds me of the Tarago V6 that could run high 14's. Good for a chuckle. Can't remember which magazine took it to the dragstrip to see what it would do.

The Transit vans with the EcoBoost V6 are also fun to drive.

looks to be the 7GR-FKS engine based on the 2GR-FKS.
doesn't look to be a supercharger kit as yet, but Id bet the Americans would make one soon if that engine is in the Tacoma

Hopefully the manual shifter will feel a bit nicer than the old one, it should do being a lot shorter.
