Toyota is known for making the most durable products, especially when it comes to SUVs and pickup trucks. People around the world have done many crazy things with them to test their strength.
Here is a unique video of a YouTuber performing the most challenging durability test of the Toyota Hilux pickup truck. Regarded as one of the most reliable products from the Japanese carmaker, the Hilux pickup truck has received a ton of accolades and awards for being one of the strongest machines on four wheels. This YouTuber goes to insane lengths to test how true the claims are. Let us take you through all these tests which might seem silly, but highlight the strength of the truck most efficiently. Also, please don’t try this yourself. It could get dangerous for you and the truck very quickly. It must be noted that the Toyota Hilux is India-bound but the vehicle seen here belongs to an earlier generation. That said, it still goes on to show the toughness that is synonymous with the Hilux.
Durability Test of Toyota Hilux Truck
The YouTuber starts the video by planning to slam the door of the truck as hard as humanely possibly around 1000 times. Within the first few attempts, the door handle breaks and the window stops rolling down. Then the man did the same experiment with the rear door. Incidentally, it took a lot of beating. At the end of about 1000 shots, there was a dent on the outside of the door panel, the window beading came off and the inside of the door area got deformed a bit. But what followed next was shocking to everyone. The driver drove the Hilux at high speeds on complete dirt tracks with giant potholes and undulations of the road. The Hilux is seen jumping off the ground because of its high speed. He took the truck through small trees and bushes. The Hilux took all that in its stride while sustaining some damage on the body.
To test out the mechanicals of the truck, the driver loaded a palette of bricks on the back of the truck. Then he drove it as fast as he could on giant potholes and through the forest. The truck obliged. He then brought the machine to drop the bricks on the truck from a height. He also pressed the cargo bed of the truck with the machine. It survived through all of it without sustaining any serious damage to the components which is quite impressive. In the end, he tested out some of the interiors of the pickup truck and everything has been built to last. Tell us what you think about this durability test of the Toyota Hilux Truck.
