As a country known as the Land of 1000 dual cabin (because there are so many dual cabin cars in Thailand), it’s no wonder the Toyota division in the White Elephant country is more focused on developing their flagship Toyota Hilux Revo when compared to the Toyota Fortuner.

What’s interesting about Hilux Revo is that now available Fleet Telematics Service for the B-Cab variant, this feature can facilitate the transportation management of entrepreneurs and can be connected with T-Connect.

Toyota Hilux 2020 Operation
Toyota Hilux Revo 2020 Prerunner version uses a 2.4L 4-cylinder diesel engine coded 2GD-FTV. This engine can produce power of 150 ps or about 148.5 hp at 3,400 rpm, as well as 400 Nm of torque that can be produced from 1,600 to 2,000 rpm. Power and torque are channeled by the four wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission. Based on our experience testing this engined Hilux, toll fuel consumption can reach 11.5 km / l while on toll roads it can travel as low as 15.1 km/ h. When invited to run, 0-100 km/h Hilux can be completed in 13.1 seconds.
What’s interesting is that the Toyota Hilux Revo 2020 steering system is equipped with VFC (Variable Flow Control). VFC is a speed detection tool in the vehicle. The simple way of working is to adjust to the speed of the vehicle. When the speed of the car is low, the power steering makes the steering wheel easier to help with agility and ease when parking. Conversely, when high speed, power steering makes the steering wheel heavier to make it safer in control.
Well, this VFC makes a special signal related to the speed of the vehicle. As a result VFC can be used to make the flow open and close for power steering oil (Toyota Hilux and Toyota Fortuner still rely on hydraulic power steering models). When the speed is low, the valve / valve is opened bigger, and vice versa. Of course, the amount of flow is also determined by how many degrees we turn the steering wheel.
