The second engine option is a 3.3 V6 turbodiesel with 310 hp and a torque of 71.4 kgf / m.
The SUV makes its debut with the new TNGA-F platform, which was developed specifically for chassis-based vehicles. Models such as the Hilux pickup, which is marketed in Brazil, will also use this platform. The platform is modern, adaptable and can be used for hybrid models.
