The Arctic Trucks AT35 upgrade package will be comprehensive for the latest high-end Toyota Hilux to become a weather-defying machine, but at a pretty high price.
The new Toyota Hilux AT35 2021 is developed based on the Hilux Invincible X Double Cab in the UK market. Compared to the original, Toyota Hilux AT35 2021 is significantly upgraded in the chassis, suspension and design.
In addition, the AT35 variant has been upgraded to Bilstein’s suspension including springs and front dampers as well as anti-roll bar adjustment and rear shock absorber with upgraded shackles. The suspension travel is increased by 40mm up front and 20mm at the rear. In appearance, the Hilux AT35 is equipped with a new widebody kit, expanded steps and logos for the 30th anniversary of the AT. Customers can also choose from a package of accessories such as an undercarriage, a light on the front bumper and a lid.
In particular, the inside of the wheel cavity has been changed to fit 17-inch Arctic Trucks alloy rims and 35-inch BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain tires, all-terrain. According to the tuner Arctic Trucks, this tire offers a more secure driving experience when running on weak surfaces. True adventurers can choose the BFGoodrich KM3 Mud-Terrain tire, which comes with a 12 V high-efficiency tire pump and pump in the engine compartment.
The powertrain is a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel engine that produces 204 hp and 500 Nm of torque through a six-speed automatic transmission. Towing capacity at 3,500kg, but the AT35 variant is about 115kg heavier than the standard version. The Hilux AT35 upgrade will be covered by Arctic Trucks for 5 years or 160,000 km and cost around 18,780 British pounds. Including the selling price of a Hilux, this figure will reach 63,000 pounds – that is, as expensive as the luxury cars.
