This is the first I´ve heard of down here and have yet to see one. Hiluxes are everywhere down here just not 4x4 diesels. Seems funny baja would have them a year before the rest of Mexico.

No towing capacity listed. But only 174 hp.

Is this the same chassis as today's Tacoma?

Want a Rig designed for 3rd world countries and associated roads? Expect a slow and rough ride.
Then go for it.

All Hilux 17 down as far as I know are 2.7 4 banger gas stick only no 4x4. So I had to buy second best in 2014 Nissan NP300 4x4 turbo Diesel. Yes rear susp rock hard changed to off road springs works great. As for power the little 4 banger hauls ass,ask any on pole line trip. The new Hilux will not have rough ride or be under powered. As I drove one in Peru for 1 week.

I did! But I would have bought the Hilux diesel 4x4 if they would have been available in 2014.

family has the Amorok. Great riding truck with power however NO torque when compared to my crappy riding Mitsubishi L-200 which has 0 power but tons of torque . Plus the recently changed battery is an Audi conversion at over $200 and only VW had the battery. Maybe not a good back country rig. Personally would not touch a Nissan especially here in La Paz.
Hilux is smaller frame than Tacoma

Are you talking about diesel motors in both the vw and mitsu? When I was shopping diesel small trucks the l200 and the rok where very close in torque.
Battery an audi conversion:?: I just put a LTH(mexican made) battery in mine 1300 pesos:light:

I actually had put money down on a nissan like yours but after driving the vw I bailed on the nissan. The nissan was smaller, a 5 speed,had a terrible ride (compared to the rok) and got lousy mpg (due to gearing).

I´m not a for life fan boy of the Amarok it was just the best (for me) when I was hunting for a truck. I´m gonna go test drive the Hilux as soon as they get one on the lot;)!

That would make the most sense but Baja Norte has ULSD and I guess that means you can't drive those trucks into the US? Not sure how the US prevents it though. You certainly can't register them in the US.

I drive my lsd using VW to the USA (az/ca/baja) a couple times a year. No problems. It runs fine on ulsd.

You are correct on the "can´t register them in the us".

Have to agree with you my Nissan had double over load springs in rear. Road like dump truck. I replaced with off road springs. Also Agree very small double cab short bed. That is what I wanted as I have full size Dodge double cab so I did not want Mid size truck. As far as MPGs again your right brand new only 20MPGs. I blocked the ERG, Removed Cat/Muffler one big 2 1/2 pipe. Put Warn locking hubs on truck. Now 33mpg also truck is silent even with no muffler. When I visit USA drive truck all over. Get many thumbs up as far as fuel any fuel in US or Mex no problems. On pole line 4x4 trip it pulled a 5,000 pound Bronco in deep sand at 40 to 50mph. As much as I love this truck I have always wanted a new Hilux 4x4 diesel. So once I test the Mex Hilux I will sell mine or keep both.:)
