Relief agencies and charities working in some of the world’s most inhospitable locations are dependent on tough and reliable transport to reach the people they are helping, but problems can arise and vital time can be lost when it comes to delivering vehicles to those who need them.
The Toyota Hilux has already proved its ability to cope with the toughest conditions worldwide and has become one of the world’s best selling pick-ups, with nearly 12 million sold globally since launch.
The mighty Hilux famously survived ordeals by fire, flood and falling tower blocks on the BBC’s Top Gear programme last year, a feat worthy of a pick-up that has achieved more than nine million sales around the world.

November 2001 saw the launch of an all-new Toyota commercial vehicle range with the introduction of a light truck known as Dyna 300/350. In addition, the Hilux Pick-up and Hiace van get a fresh new look and improved specification.
Hilux has long been one of the strongest symbols of Toyota’s unparalleled reliability and durability image, successfully conquering the world’s toughest terrains – from Africa to Middle East deserts and from Australian Outback to American plains.
