Toyota is known for selling some of the most reliable vehicles throughout the world. Some of these vehicles last for lakhs of kilometers before being immobile. Such models of the brand in India include the Toyota Innova and the Hilux. Apart from reliability, the Hilux moniker is also associated with off-roading capabilities and the capacity to pull heavy loads as a pickup truck. Presenting one such example of its strength, a video is shared on social media showing a Toyota Hilux pickup pulling a loaded tanker on an icy slope.
The video shared by hg_auto_talks1 on Instagram presents a fine example of the Toyota Hilux's capabilities. The video shows a tanker stuck in an icy slope, which receives the help of a Toyota Hilux owner to get out of the situation. The Hilux is tied to the truck with a rope and pulls it forward with full strength. Because of the ice-covered road, the Toyota vehicle struggles to gain traction and the wheels can be seen spinning for a while.
After a while, the Toyota Hilux overcomes the problem of less traction and starts pulling the truck ahead. Though, the weight of the tanker seemed to be a problem in the initial stage but Toyota efficiently managed to overcome it. At the end of the video, the tanker's driver thanks the Hilux owner for his help.
