Measure the Toyota HiLux While You Still Can

The Toyota HiLux Measuring Sessions were made possible by a Department of Commerce Market Development Cooperator Program grant from the U.S. government, which is working with SEMA to identify and create export opportunities for SEMA members.

There are only a few months left to measure the ’16 Toyota HiLux. SEMA has imported this truck, popularly customized around the world, but not sold in the United States, to provide SEMA members access to one of the world’s best-selling customizable trucks in order to create export-ready products. Brought to the United States under a temporary U.S. government waiver, which expires in late summer, members can schedule a time to measure the truck at the SEMA Garage in Diamond Bar, California. The trucks can also be transported to your facility, if needed.
