Toyota Launches New HiLux Campaign Via Saatchi & Saatchi

In a new campaign, Toyota Australia has sought to bring the “unbreakable connection” that HiLux drivers have to their utes in a new campaign created by Saatchi & Saatchi.

The campaign story follows a couple experiencing a few bumps in the road of their relationship, once apart from each other, their shared love of the HiLux and all that it delivers ultimately saves the day and brings them back together – stronger than ever.

The campaign platform will be activated across key partnerships, out-of-home, broadcast, digital, radio, in-store and CRM.

Vin Naidoo, Toyota Australia CMO, said: “We know that Australia has a special relationship – an unbreakable connection, you could say, with the Toyota Hilux, built up over 50 years and is certainly one we are very proud of.”

Steve Cochran, chief creative officer, Saatchi & Saatchi, added: “There’s a hugely strong legacy of work for HiLux in Australia. The opportunity to continue that is both a privilege and a kind of responsibility. We certainly hope the country thinks we’ve done that legacy proud with this fun new iteration.”

Alas, 10's Gladiators has gone as quickly as it came. Should make for a very wild garage sale, however.
