    Nice add - they're probably still an average ute. :-)

    Nice ad but they'll have to prove themselves to get their good name back

    Add must be for the Auckland market where if you buy all the toys the animals will just fall at your feet.

    Bloody funny ad I reckon. But yeah some greenies will want to ban it for some reason or another.
    No sense of humour those vegetarians!

    Good ad. Will appeal to a good kiwi bloke for sure.
    Took the new hilux for a test drive last week and was quite impressed. I think they have got it right with this model.
    It rode well with plenty of power and the clearance seems good compared to a lot of the competition.
    I don't think it will need a lift kit as did the previous models if you wanted to use off road.
    The other big thing I was interested in was the low ratio gearing and if it is low enough for good control off road. my 09 hilux doesn't hold well in 2nd gear in low box on steep downward terrain but this new model is quite a lot better.
    I would be happy to own one.
    Work less hunt more!

    Thinking of taking a new one for a drive when I am home next.
    Heart was set on the current model but been hearing some good things about the 2016 model.

    The new one's drive nice, but whoever did their interior design should have a hot poker rammed up their backside. Looks like they just stuck an I-pad on the centre of the dash
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    Pretty classic. The ad agency they use must have had a change of heart from the time we approached them a couple of years back about getting involved with our TV series. At that stage, we were told something along the lines of hunting not overlapping with their core demographic and that it wasn't reflective of the Hilux brand.

    Worked out for the best in the end though - would take our Amarok over a Hilux anyday!
