Two months ago we told you that the best-known Toyota, Hilux, pick up had some other problem for the test of the Moose. At that time, it failed to overcome it by several problems, including an incorrect calibration of the ESP stability control and improper pressure on wheels full load. After the result, the Japanese firm engineers declared that they would solve the problem and would pass the test to verify that the applied improvements work to perfection.
Thus it has been said and done. Toyota Hilux developers have put hands to work and have corrected all the critical points and the result now yes has been expected. Teknikens Värld boys have returned to assess to the pick-up of the Japanese House and this time It has successfully passed the moose test. In the video below you can see the entire process of testing and assessments made by Linus Pröjtz, the journalist responsible for the development of it.
This test is done in the following way: in the interior of the vehicle are four occupants and depending on the type of vehicle a given load. In the case of the Toyota Hilux load has been 800 kilos located in the center of the box. The maneuver is performed at a speed of up to 67 mph simulating the elusive animal or object that has been presented in the way unexpectedly.
After the problem Toyota has been somewhat calmer, because although it seems silly moose test says a lot about the quality of construction of a vehicle. However, the changes have been applied to overcome the test only will be available on the Hilux double cabin sold in Europe. For now is not expected to make the brand a call to review to remedy the problem in units that already have been sold or incorporating them in other markets.
