Toyota‘s Hilux has a long-standing reputation for being one of the toughest pick up trucks on the road. It even famously survived being dropped from a crane on Top Gear. Word has it Toyota is considering building a more hardcore version of the current Hilux Revo, after the smashing success of the Rocco edition, but this has yet to happen.
Well it appears one Japanese aftermarket company wasn’t willing to wait. Renowned tuner Wald International has kitted out the Revo with a range of modular upgrades. Officially titled ‘Sports Line Black Bison Edition’ the fully-customized Revo looks extremely menacing thanks to its wider fenders, new front bumper, and a huge hood scoop cover, while an aggressive body kit makes the pickup truck 2.16 inches wider than the standard model.
Other modifications include a roof spoiler with fitted LED lights for higher visibility, a rear tailgate spoiler, and a side exhaust system with three tips. The truck sits on 20-inch Jarret 1PC wheels wrapped in massive off-road tires to improve the Revo’s off-road capability.
Wald International hasn’t revealed if any modifications were made under the hood which means the Black Bison Edition probably hasn’t received any powertrain upgrades to complement its menacing.
In Japan, as in Pakistan the Revo is powered by a 2.8-liter four-cylinder diesel engine producing 174 horsepower, while the European version packs a 2.4-liter diesel.
