Toyota Motor Thailand Co., Ltd. is the first to initiate pickup caravan journey that continues its legacy for a long time, especially for the Hilux pickups. The legendary journey commenced in 2004 with the long trip from Thailand to the land of enchantment that every globetrotter dreams of. The voyage started from Thailand through high mountains and steep cliffs in the north of Laos before entering the jade dragon snow mountain in Lijiang, China. After that, in 2005, the Hilux Caravan resumed its journey from Lijiang across the towering peaks of 5,000 meters to Lhasa in Tibet autonomous region which is nicknamed the "Roof of the World". In 2007, the Caravan continued its memorable journey across the most ancient land trade route of Silk Road to the center of Central Asia―Tashkent, Uzbekistan.
In 2016 the journey marked the new chapter in the history by showcasing the world-class performance and quality of Thai-made pickups. Nine Hilux Revo pickups will set out on the Silk Road voyage from Bangkok to Italy. To continue previous celebrated Silk Road journey, this time the team travel for over 19,250 kilometers, across two continents and seventeen countries. This trip unveiled the supreme experience of Toyota Hilux Revo, as well as demonstrating the vigorous performance of its suspension system, presenting the exceptional traction control of its latest suspension in line with its robust engine that will drive the vehicle on all kinds of terrain."
