- Second Generation: The second iteration of the Hilux was released in 1972 with more comfortable interior and exterior updates.
- Third Generation: With the third generation in 1978, Toyota introduced a four-door model of the truck. A year later, the carmaker released a 4WD model for better off-road performance.
- Fourth Generation: The truck went through an interior redesign with full high panels for the doors and faux leather stitching. Toyota also introduced the Xtracab, offering more room behind the front seats.
- Fifth Generation: With the fifth generation, the Hilux provided more ground clearance and anti-lock brakes became an option.
- Sixth Generation: The sixth generation of Hilux 5-seater came with a more rounded and modern appearance. Toyota also introduced the Double Cab model with more seating and an extra row of doors.
- Seventh Generation: Between 2005 and 2015, Toyota added a bunch of safety features to the Hilux, including Stability Control and Traction Control. It also offered a more fuel-efficient engine.

You should choose a version with a truckman top if you want added protection for your load. The truckman top is a lockable canopy placed over the load compartment to protect its content from theft and weather elements. On the downside, the truckman cover adds to the vehicle’s weight and it makes the load area unsuitable for tall items.
