Toyota Hilux Invisible Meets Fireman
The Toyota Hilux Invincible is being thoroughly tested by heroes of the West Midlands Fire Service.
The Toyota Hilux Invincible is being thoroughly tested by heroes of the West Midlands Fire Service. As such, three now protect a population of 2.7 million across 350 square miles. More could follow if the trial is successful. Mercifully, the Hilux Invincible has numerous strengths to help it cope. Highlights include its rock-solid reliability, excellent four-wheel- drive system, and the 3.0-litre diesel engine. This produces 171PS, and 343Nm of torque in five-speed manual form and 360Nm when bolted to the five-speed auto. These average 36.7mpg and 32.8mpg, respectively, with emissions slightly over 200g/km. Not bad for the class. The Invincible also has a high specification considering it is a pick-up with a 1m3/ 1,000+KG capacity. This includes cruise control, Bluetooth, air-con, and a CD player with options such as sat-nav and parking sensors. All from £20,300, plus VAT and delivery.Chris Beebee, Fleet Manager at West Midlands Fire Service, revealed: 'The West Midlands Fire Service is constantly striving to make financial savings combined with improving operational flexibility. The trial of the Toyota Hilux Invincible is supporting these objectives, with it becoming the vehicle of choice after a thorough review of comparable vehicles. Its flexibility, combined with its class leading gross carrying capacity, low fuel consumption, and low CO2 emissions means the West Midlands Fire Service is anticipating financial and operational benefits underpinned by Toyota’s superb green credentials.'
