1987 Toyota Hilux Review
Cargo Capacity:
Fuel Economy:
Front Seats:
Maintenance Cost:

It's Awful To Drive, That's What Makes It Fun..... — This ute was a complete basket case when I got it. The previous owner simply drove it. He did not look after it in any way. It was like an archeological dig finding lots of lost and new discoveries. I went through this old truck from stem to stern and fixed all that was wrong. What a mammoth task. It was worth it. This little truck is sooooo useful.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: It's a work horse. The reliable companion always willing to lend a hand

Cons: The 2.4L diesel is quite under-powered. and the steering is non-power. Both of there I can live with.

1987 Toyota Hilux Review

87 Hilux — Performance: Slow Build Quality: Mostly good. Mostly. Appearance: But ugly 80s minitruck Cost of Ownership: Cheap. As is my dignity. Fun Factor: Slim to none. Ultimate cause of death: Significantly less than it took to kill the Hilux on Top Gear.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Cheap

1987 Toyota Hilux Review

The Toyota — Ok truck, could be worse. Weak cylinder, rusting pickup bed. Maxed out at 85 mph on I-91. That was down hill. About 200,000 miles on it. Lock in the hubs and put it in 4WD, it'll go almost anywhere. Put it in 4WD low, it WILL go anywhere.

Pros: Helluva truck

Cons: Engine sucks

1987 Toyota Hilux Review

Company Truck — I drove this truck when I worked at Conquest and someone had to monitor the other site every few hours. This is a real rough'n'ready truck. There was a problem with the parking brake; it would always come loose.

Pros: Somewhat fun to drive.

Cons: Whatever you do, DON'T leave the keys in the ignition.

It's The Truck Top Gear Used When They Go To The North Pole! By Arthur
