Toyota Hilux Double Cab Relies on Big Labor

Toyota Hilux Double Cabin eventually marketed (DC) in Indonesia. Of the several variants that are made in Thailand, for consumers in Indonesia, Toyota Hilux DC chose intercooler turbo diesel engine (TDI), common rail technology with a power handling: part-time 4x4.

These options make the Hilux DC superior in some respects compared to competitors who first entered Indonesia. Main effort.
Appearances. Compared with single cabin version (SC), the latest appearance of the Toyota pickup, this looks more handsome and muscular. The causes, dimensions of this vehicle as a whole is greater than the SC 460 mm, except in the tub. Especially for the tub, DC, about 460 mm shorter.

Design grille and headlamps together Hilux DC and SC. Differences exist in the front, namely the hood. For DC, equipped with a hood scoop or a funnel of water and make it looks more macho.

Another difference is the tire size, type and model of wheel. Although both use the tire 15, the palm of DC more broadly, namely 255, while the SC 205. For wheels, SC using the plates, while the DC of the alloy. Another additional Footstep aluminum mounted on the right side and left side.
Interior. DC is more luxurious interior, although the design of the dashboard and steering wheel are the same. Special to the dashboard, DC using two colors (two tone): black and ivory, while the SC monotone, black.

Equipment that is included in the Hilux interior is air conditioning, CD player with audio 2DIN four speakers, while the instruments using analog models within the three circles.
Power Source. Because Hilux DC engineered as a vehicle for a variety of field or a hard worker, chose the Toyota 3.0-liter diesel engine. In their home country, Hilux DC had two diesel engine choices that are 2.5 liters and 3.0 liters.

Technology is the mainstay of common rail engines and turbo intercooler and named D4D (Direct 4-stroke Common Rail Diesel Turbo) by Toyota.

Compared with competitors who already marketed in Indonesia, the power output is greatest Hilux, which is 163 PS, while torque of 35 kgm. Amazingly, the torque is obtained at relatively low speed and the 'flat' (flat), that is 1400-3400 rpm. With these characteristics, the machine is suitable for off-road and a lot climb field. Machines also tend to be thrifty because, to gain traction, not to step on the pedal a deep (high speed).

Other features of Toyota’s proud of this machine are the intercooler. This tool is used to cool air sucked by the turbine before supplied to the engine. In this way, the machine works more efficiently because the temperature can be kept relatively low.

For the turbo, use variable nozzle technology. With this, the ability of the turbo, ranging from low and high speed just as effective. The phenomenon of turbo lag at low rpm can be prevented. Conversely, when the machine is working at a higher speed, excessive turbo spin could also be prevented. In this way, endurance turbo be better.
4x4 Part Time. To distribute power from the engine to the wheels, Toyota uses five-speed manual transmission. From the transmission of engine power transmitted to the transfer of the case that part-time work with the system. In this way, vehicles can work from a 4x4 system (off-road) to a 4x2 (on-road) or vice versa. To operate the transfer case must be done manually with the position of H2, H4, N, and L4.

The shift from 4x2 to 4x4 can be done while the road, but it must be under the speed of 80 km / hr. Conversely, transfer of H4 to H2 can be done at each speed. The transfer of H4 to L4, the vehicle must be blocked before or below the speed of 8 km / hr.
Suspension. In front, Toyota is using a double wishbone with coil plus a stabilizer, while the rear wheels, used per leaf. Another additional steering with hydraulic power assistance or power steering, while the front brake discs and rear drum.

Under these conditions it was natural that Toyota could offer double-cab vehicle with a competitive price.
