2016 Toyota Hilux: What accessories are available?

The new 2016 Toyota Hilux is like a master tradesperson equipped for almost every eventuality. It arrives with a similar line-up – Active, Icon, Invincible and Invincible X – but with even more generous specification levels.

In view of its popularity as both a trade and leisure vehicle, Toyota has a range of over 100 centre-fit accessories for the Hilux. These have been developed to specialise and personalise the vehicle to individual requirements.

But with such a broad selection available, deciding which accessory boxes to tick can seem daunting. So to ease the decision-making process we have gathered a selection and bundled them into related packs.

Under-rail bed liners are available on Extra and Double Cab models, with rail protection offered through separate rail caps (£140-144).

Optional deck cross bars (£310) are available to mount or transport items over the aluminium roll cover.

  1. I’ve a brand new Hilux Invincible X for just over 3 weeks, which is fantastic. Unfortunately though I’m really disappointed to discover (that for the nearly £40K price Tag) there’s no alarm, the tailgate lock isn’t married to the central locking and there’s no front parking sensors. Apart from this the Media Centre is very slow to respond, Sat Nav is supposed to be 3D and definitely isn’t.
    The auto gearbox is in no way set up correctly either, if you don’t accelerate past 70 then it never finds 6th gear. This is obviously using more fuel and increasing cabin noise, as in the UK the law says this size pick up is restricted to 60 on Dual Carriage ways and 50 on single carriage ways it does add to my annoyance.
    So far I’ve had to buy a central locking solenoid for the tailgate, to sort out that problem. I’ve also bought an HUD to display speed as the clock is very hard to read especially in London traffic with all the other distractions. I’m now looking into buying a tailgate assist as the weight is to the point of being dangerous when opening.
    I’m hoping that someone from Toyota reads these and can put some of these issues into the pipeline to get sorted for future top of the range Hilux’s. The Auto-gear box situation may just be a firmware update ?

    1. Hi Geoff,

      Thanks for getting in touch and we are sorry to hear that you are experiencing these issues. We would advise for you to contact our Customer Relations team regarding this, as they will be able to open a case and investigate further. You can find their contact details via the following link:



    2. Yes I had the same problem with tailgate not been able to lock via central locking & no front parking Sensors , Seems a shame to buy such an expensive vehicle and not to have these items fitted as standard

    3. Dear Geoff

      I am from Malta and in 2018 I bought used 2017 Hilux invincible manual from UK and about tailgate assist I bought one Toyota Genuine from Thailand with Manufacturer Part Number: PC3B2-0K001. I don’t know why a lot of accessories is not available in Europe and about the Auto gearbox that the reason that I chose Manual gearbox lower fuel consumption.


  2. I would not waist your money on DAB as My invincible has it but never works just says no signal 99% of the time. I have had a list of problems as long as my arm right from day one and still not fixed 2 yrs later despite multiple visits.
    I am so fed up if I could get my money back I would hand it back!!!!!!!

    1. Hi Lee,

      Thanks for getting in touch and we are very sorry to hear that you are experiencing these issues. If you would like to contact our Customer Relations team, they would be happy to assist you. You can find their details via the following link:



      1. I have been through just about every department and I’m being told they are all like this regards DAB.
        I am a member on two Toyota forums and lots of Hilux drivers are saying DAB is a waist of time , some have changed the roof aerial and say that has made a big difference.
        At this time my supper tough Hilux has a forward facing camera that keeps flashing up that it’s not working randomly, more annoying than anything else.

        Rear tail gate struts that hold tail gate flat when open, left side is tight , right is very slack so all weight is on the left side only, as one takes all the weight its now bent the left side of the tail gate where it fixes too.

        Toyota again say this is normal they are all like this, if thats the case why bother putting struts on both sides?

        I had some sort of warning come up on the dash Saturday pm , I called in but service gone home, he said he would put a message on the managers desk and he would call me first thing to Monday, no call by 1pm.
        I called again and had to leave another message as they were busy, I eventually had a call back at 4:30.

        They didn’t know what it was and he advised to call the AA to make sure its not doing any damage, I have just took it back to them yet again and left it there and come away with a tinny little car, mind the DAB works in that !

        1. Credit where its due, it is back in the workshop and it looks as though things are looking up, parts are being ordered and updated parts fitted, long overdue but at last things are looking up.
          If this works , great, but plans are in place if problems still exists. Will keep you posted.

          1. Hi Leeroy,

            That’s great news to hear. If you have any further issues, please let us know or feel free to contact our Customer Relations team.


    2. My DAB works fine Apart from some more rural areas , the DAB has a separate aerial from the FM one so it might be worth getting it checked to see if the plug is out or loose .. my Hilux has been great over the last 2 years , would like the Bigger 2.8 engine but the 2.4 does ok
      I’m going to keep mine until there is a major model change
      Or the bigger engine becomes avalible or when it’s 10 years old:..

      1. Hi Lee,

        This depends on the specification. Below you’ll find payload and gross vehicle weight figures for the Hilux range:

        Single Cab:
        Payload = 1030kg
        GVW = 3080kg

        Extra Cab:
        Payload = 1040kg
        GVW = 3150kg

        Double Cab Active:
        Payload = 1075
        GVW = 3210kg

        Double Cab Icon:
        Payload = 1120kg
        GVW = 3210kg

        Double Cab Invincible and Invincible X:
        Payload = 1115kg
        GVW = 3210kg


        1. Thank you for the information, My vehicle is a November 2016 Invincible double cab.
          The weight I am looking for is the maximum load on the tailgate its self if you could find out please.

          1. Hi Lee,

            In order to try and assist you further with this, could you please provide us with your registration number or VIN?


  3. hello,
    where is the switch for switching off rear parking sensors on a Hilux Invincible X Limited Edition 2018 when towing a trailer ??

    1. Hi Aled,
      Thank you for getting in touch with us. Sorry it has taken so long to reply.
      The rear cancellation switch to disable TPA can be found on the left side of the dashboard, as you open the front passenger door.
      If you cannot find it we do have a image we can send to you via email.
      If you would like this image please could you confirm we can use the email you have given to make this blog comment?

    1. Hi Ben,
      Thanks for getting in touch. Please could you provide your reg or VIN number so we can look further in to this for you. Many thanks.

    1. Hi Shaun,
      Thanks for your comment. Bullbars are not homologated for fitment pre-registration because they don’t pass pedestrian impact testing. We hope this answers your question!

    1. Hi Ian,
      Thanks for getting in touch. Our technical team have tested this on a Touch 2 with Go system and have advised you follow the steps below:
      Setup – Toyota Online – Set auto start for Apps – TICK or UNTICK Autostart Coyote
      Setup – Toyota Online – My Apps – Coyote – Remove
      We hope this helps.

  4. can anyone tell me how to operate the front parking sensors on the all new hilux invincible x
    nothing seems to be written in the owners manual

    1. Hi John,
      Have you checked the online owners manual or the manual that comes with the car (usually stored in the glove box)?

      1. ella
        yes been there, done that, absolutely no mention in the either of the two manuals, nor in the online version, (not even listed in the index???) I have read on a post below that there might be a switch missing !!
        I have spoken to the dealership who didn’t know either and is looking into it for me, if these are fitted as part of the package I would just like the opportunity to use them, especially in tighter spaces

        otherwise the hilux is superb, in every way ,a dream to drive
        long may that continue

          1. kathleene
            yes that is correct, there is no button or switch for the front sensors, that I can see anyway, the dealer was also going to try and find out
            I have been through the manual and there is no reference to them anywhere
            the bumper has the sensors fitted, well it look like it anyway, beginning to wonder, 1, are they wired up, 2 is there a switch missing (as mentioned in another posting)
            can you please advise on the operation, if you know that is,

            otherwise still perfect in every way(so far)
            2.5 weeks old and 3k miles

          2. Hi John,
            We have spoken with our technical team and they have advised that the front parking sensor switch should be located on the lower right hand side, behind the steering wheel. It should be a rectangular switch with ‘P///^’ on it. However, our technical department only have a generic model manual for the parking sensors and have advised to head back to your dealer for more information.

    2. If you open nearside front door there is a switch located on the side of the dash. This switch operatesthe front sensors allowing for on and off. The switch inside the cab lower right of steering wheel switches both front and rear sensors on/off.

    1. Hi there,
      We have to advise speaking to your local dealer about your delivery date. They have the most up-to-date information regarding this. Many thanks 🙂

    1. Hi there,
      If you’re looking for accessories, we would advise contacting you local Toyota Centre or visiting our Toyota.co.uk website! Hope this helps 🙂

      1. No it’s the flat rubber mat that covers the load floor and stops stuff sliding about and damage to the bed floor… They are available from Toyota Australia so I would guess they are a genuine accessory, thanks again..

          1. With the greatest respect if Toyota GB hadn’t had such a good product to sell they would have gone out of business a long time ago, they really don’t make much effort … Either with the vehicle spec or choice of options and accessories, and not offering the 2.8 engine in the Hilux will really hurt sales of the high spec models like invincible…

          2. Hi there.
            We’re sorry to hear that you feel this way, if you would like to raise anything with our Customer Relations team they’d be more than happy to have a chat with you. We will pass on your feedback. Many thanks!

    1. Hi Lyn,
      Thanks for your post. As far as we can see the Hilux comes available with 17″ 6-Spoke Black Machined Alloy Wheels, 17″ 6-double spoke alloy wheels and 17″ black machine-faced alloy wheels (6-spoke). We would advise following this link: http://po.st/CJNsT6. This should help you customise the Hilux. Hope this helps. Many thanks.

    1. Hi there,
      Thanks for your post. Unfortunately, DAB radio is only available in the Hilux Icon and upwards. However, it may be possible to get a DAB accessory, we would advise contacting your local dealer to see if they are able to help further. Hope this helps. Many thanks.
