Guide to Foreign (Non-USA) Model Toyotas
« on: Feb 16, 2008, 10:15:05 PM »
Since the USA missed out on a lot of great Toyota models available elsewhere in the world, I thought I would do a thread devoted to foreign Toyota models that are not available in the United States. Most people dont know about the huge variety of Toyota 4x4s found around the world. This list is obviously not complete, as there are many, many different models produced through out the years.  Check out The Foreign Toyota 4x4 website for more detailed information and to see the more obscure models. Also note that many of these models presented were imported to the USA in some form or another, typically with a different engine/transmission availability.



Big props to http://www.brian894x4.com/FOREIGNTOYOTAMAINPAGE.html for the great information and pictures.

I have spent a lot of time trying to ensure the information provided here is as accurate as possible. The internet and word of mouth from non-US residents is the only way for me to find information on these Toyotas. If anyone sees anything they think/know is wrong, please let me know so I can fix it. Also, some of the engine/tranny options may appear to be wrong for say all model years listed but you have to remember that sometimes, other countries got different set ups than others for the same model year. Likewise model years overlapped and had different production runs, so this is broad information across the board. Anything excluded you feel should be included, let me know!!  :beerchug:


Quote from: Foreign Toyota 4x4s
The beginnings of the Toyota Lancruiser can be traced back to 1950, when the first BJ prototype was designed.  
Originally designed to compete with the Willies Overland Jeep as an all purpose off road vehicle, it was marketed to
the military and civilians alike.   The original concept borrowed heavily from the Willies Jeep in style, but other than
that, the Landcruiser has proven to be anything but a copy of the Jeep.

In 1951, one of the first Landcruisers built,  succeeded in driving to the 6th station on Mt. Fuji, In Japan.  Something
no other motor vehicle had done up to that time.  It was a milestone feat indicative of what would later be known as
one of the most off road capable marques in the world.  Beginning in 1955, the Landcruiser was powered by a 3.8 liter
inline 6 cylinder that made 105 h.p.  This motor was strikingly similier to the Chevrolet 225 cid I-6 of the day,
although few, if any parts interchanged.  However, the motor was familier looking to American buyers and military
serviceman who sometimes found themselves driving the little cruisers in Japan and Korea.   And this was real
advantage for making sales, later, in the United States.

Toyota began exporting the new BJ Landcruiser in 1953 to customers that special ordered it.   But mass production
would not happen until a year later.   In the United States, off roading was not was it is today.  There was a glutton of
war surplus Jeeps all over the world.  And the idea of buying a Japanese made product did not have the same context
as it does today.   Inititally, sales of Landcruisers in the U.S. were slow, but around the world, popularity was
increasing dramaticly.  In 1955, the first series 25 was produced, introducing the first numerial designation that
future Landcruisers would be known by.  In 1957, the first mass produced Landcrusier was sold in the United States.  
A year later Landcruisers were imported into Australia.

All very early Landcruisers were powered by a B series gas engine.   But some later models, starting in 1955, were
powered by a new F series gas engine or a B series diesel engine.  BJ, signified the Landcruiser was powered by a
diesel engine, while FJ, signified it was powered by gasoline motor.   While the diesel engine would power
Landcrusiers all over the world through today, the United States would never see a production diesel Landcruiser.  
Canada, however, did import diesel Landcruisers through the late 1980s.

Quote from: Foreign Toyota 4x4s
In 1976, chief Land Cruiser engineer Hiroshi Ohsawa began planning for the next generation of the 50-
series Land Cruiser.  In order to compete in the US market, something more was needed beyond what the
FJ55V had to offer.   It had to have a larger body, feel closer to an estate car, include more luxurious
touches in the interior, and offer a more comfortable ride.

The problem was what to do with the suspension.  Mr. Ohsawa considered an independent front suspension,
however this idea was rejected in favor of the existing front and rear leaf springs and solid axles of the
FJ55V to ensure that the Land Cruiser lived up to its off-road reputation.   And thankfully so.  It’s
interesting to note that Toyota was considering IFS as early as the mid 1970s.   Of course, a mere 10 years
later, IFS would find it’s way onto the 4Runner/Surf and some trucks and today all but one model of the
Land Cruiser uses IFS.

Quote from: Foreign Toyota 4x4s
The Landcruiser 75 series replaced the aging 45 series long wheelbase models in 1984.  While a more modern design, it retained and improved every off road quality of the prior 40 series. As a result it has become one of the best off road vehicles ever produced.

Quote from: Foreign Toyota 4x4s
The Landcruiser 78 and 79 series replaced the 75 series long wheelbase models in 1999.  Toyota made several significant, although not very apparent changes, that make this the best Landcruiser, and perhaps best off road vehicle of all time.


Land Cruiser 78/79 Series
1999-Present

Quote from: Foreign Toyota 4x4s
The first 4x4 compact Toyota.This model is very similier to the Toyota introduced in North America. It would a few years later before the Hilux and North American pick-up split into two distinquished models. The all new Toyota compact truck was small, effecient and rugged off road. Just what people were looking for.


Toyota Hilux (imported to USA)
1979-1983
20R (gas), 22R (gas), 2L (diesel)
Leaf Springs
Solid Axles F&R

1979-1984 1st generalion hilux in Australia were fitted with the 18RC petrol engine ro the L (2.2 litre ) diesel with a 4 speed gearbox
1988 -1997 3rd generation hilux in Auatralia were fitted with 22R petrol engine and 3L diesel then 5L diesel  where as Europe only had the 2L-II





4 Door Production Model:











Hilux custom built for use in Iceland:






Quote from: Foreign Toyota 4x4s
When Toyota introduced an all new model for 1984, it redesigned both the overseas Hilux and the North
American pick-up truck at the same time.  Both models were also nearly identical, except for one very
notable difference.  Toyota introduced an all new double cab design for the overseas foreign Hilux, but
never did bring this design into North America.  The reasons are unclear, but the 4 door cab was extremely
popular overseas.  One could only imagine if it would have been just as popular here.  There are several
possible explainations.  One being that the 4 door cab was an optional primarily intended for commercial
customers, of which Toyota had almost none in North America.   Another very notable difference in this
generation was the introduction of IFS on North American models beginning in 1986.  The foreign Hilux
never did use IFS on this generation.  The solid axle was retained through the end of the production run on
all models, except the Surf (Japanese model 4Runner). All foreign models of the Hilux Surf did go to the IFS in 1986 just
like the North American counterpart.  This generation introduced a 5 speed transmission and a 4 speed
automatic in some markets.  Some markets, such as Australia would never see an optional automatic
transmission until the current 2003 model.  Engine options for the Hilux continued to include both diesel and
petrol for all models, including those sold in North America.  However, the diesel was dropped in North
American after 1985 and has never returned since.  Petrol engines included the Y series and the R series.  
The Y series made far less power than the R series but was sold in countries such as Japan and Europe,
where fuel economy was critical.  The diesel engine used was the L series.

One of the most surprising facts about this generation is that while it was replaced in most markets in 1989
with an all new body style, South Africa continued production of this generation through 1997.  They were
produced in South Africa, exclusively for the South African market, although many were sold in other
African nations.    These trucks retained the same basic frame, body and suspension of the 1984 trucks
through 1997, with minor updates.  Even some of the old engines, such as the 22R remained in production
through 1997.   Toyota built the Hiluxs at a South African manufacturing plant, exclusively for the South
African  market.   The reason Toyota never introduced the all new body and interior in South Africa in 1989
was because of the "vehicle content laws" in South Africa at the time.  These dictated that a certain
percentage of the vehicle must be made in South Africa before it could be sold there.   As a result, it was
cheaper for Toyota to continue producing the older body style rather than try to introduce an all new body
style and all new tooling.   It's also interesting to note that Toyota did not use all of the same parts we are
familier with on other Toyotas.  For example a different type of rear diff made by G-max was used as well as
possibly other parts.   This G-max diff (see below for pictures) was also used in other import trucks
produced in South Africa.  Because the axle was produced in South Africa it helped Toyota and other
manufactures to comply with the domestic content laws.



Toyota Hilux (imported to the USA)
1984-1988
Solid Axles F&R, IFS front, solid axle rear (USA, Japan)
Leaf springs F&R, Torsion IFS front, solid axle rear (USA, Japan)




















Hilux Surf (4Runner) (USA, Japan, Australia)

Quote from: Foreign Toyota 4x4s
These are pictures of 1997 Toyota Hiluxs, but notice the body style?  It's the same generation that was
abandoned by Toyota over 9 nears earlier in other markets.   Toyota of South Africa continued to produce this
generation Hilux well past 1988 all the way through 1997 until the current generation Hilux replaced it in 1998.
There are several other things of note on these Hiluxes.   Note the factory carburated 22R.  That's a factory
22R carb engine in a 1997 Toyota!   Also notice the rear diff is not the same Toyota diff we all know.  Instead
it's a G-Max electric locker differential.   Toyota continued producing the 1984 body style though 1997 to
save money and to prevent having to ship all new tooling into South Africa to build the Hilux.   Here's the
statement from Toyota as to why they didn't produce the 1989 body style in South Africa.  "In 1988 Toyota
released the fifth generation Hilux, a model that was not released in South Africa due to high local content
investment requirements."

This generation Hilux incorporated an all
new body and interior as well as updated
engines.   This generation is considered by
many to be the best all time Hilux and
indeed the best Toyota compact truck of all
time.   It was the last generation to
incorporate a solid front axle and
combined that with a more modern body
and interior and more powerful engines.   It
was this generation and model that retained
the solid front axle through 1997.   12 years
after it was discontinued in North America.

The 1989 - 1997 VW Taro (European Hilux)
In 1989, Toyota struck an agreement with VW to produce all of it's Toyota pick-ups and sell them in Europe.
The deal was a win/win for both parties.  VW never had a decent pick-up and Toyota was having a hard time
selling Japanese made trucks in Europe.   To allow the trucks to be manufactured in Europe would help sales
and get by some government restrictions.  The trade off was that the trucks would not be badged as Toyotas.
Instead they were badged as VWs.  But they were were Toyotas in every sense of the name.  The trucks
were nearly identical to their 1989-1997 Hilux counterpart and as with the Hilux they retained the solid front
axle.  All of the parts were Toyota designed and many were Toyota made.  These VW Taro trucks were sold
all over Europe, including the United Kingdom, France and Germany.   In 1998 Toyota introduced an all new
body style and suspension for the Hilux.  It was determined not to continue with the VW production and
nameplate because of lagging sales.  Today, the European Toyota is once again called the Hilux and
produced by Toyota.  It is the same 1998-2003 Hilux found in the rest of the world, except North America. 
But sales still lag.  Europe is one of the smallest Hilux markets in the world.

Quote from: Foreign Toyota 4x4s
When Toyota elected to update the Toyota Hilux for the 1998 model year, it did much more than that.   The '98
through current Hilux  body style and interior were all new and so was the front suspension.   Actually, the frame
and front suspension were not new at all.   For the Hilux, Toyota used the same torsion bar IFS frame and
suspension used on the older North American Toyotas built from  1986 through 1995.   While the Hilux resembles
the current North American Toyota Tacoma, it only shares the Tacoma interior and 2.7 liter petrol optional engine.
  Nothing else on the Tacoma  can be found  on the Hilux.   The reason the Tacoma frame and suspension were not
used, is because the Hilux is classed as a 1 ton truck.  While many models are only 1/2 ton, the basic frame and
suspension must be required to carry up to 1 ton with minor upgrades.  The Tacoma (and even the Tundra)  does
not meet these requirements.  The Tacoma was never designed with the intention of 1 ton capacity, but the older
IFS frame was.  The Tacoma uses an arguably weaker partly boxed frame to save cost and is not as durable off
road as the truck it replaced and the current generation Toyota Hilux.   But the Tacoma does ride and handle
better on the street.  The Tacoma is an all around good truck, but the Hilux and older Toyotas are simply more
durable and have a much better load capacity.

Perhaps to some, the most striking change was the discontinued use of the solid front axle.  Favored by many off
roaders over the lesser traveling and somewhat weaker IFS suspension, the solid front axle stayed with the Hilux
on most models for 12 years longer than it did with the North American market Toyotas.  With it's passing in 1997,
it's not likely to ever appear on a compact pick-up again.  Toyota does still retain the solid front axle on the current
Landcruiser 78 series.

So why did Toyota drop such an off road capable and proven durable suspension in favor of IFS?  The fact is,
Toyota was actually losing sales to Isuzu in the commercial truck market during the last years of the prior
generation.  Despite the superior off road suspension, customers were lured to Isuzu by an all new body, IFS and
more powerful engines.   But once Toyota introduced the new IFS Hilux in 1998, it regained the lead in the
commerical 1 ton truck market and has stayed there ever since.

And there you have it. I will continue to update this post as I find more information and pictures. Hope you all enjoy. I for one, really dig foreign Toyotas. I wish we weren't so "unfortunate" with what was available here in the United States.

fortysixandtwo, Excellent post, very informative. My younger brother who lives in Australia is often sending me info on Toyotas that are available 'down under' and damn they are lucky, even if the steering wheel is on the wrong side LOL.
As far as being 'unfortunate' try being up here in Canada where half of what you have available is not found up here and when you find one it's so badly rusted or beat down you've got to spend a great deal to make it road worthy!
For now I'll keep this post in my favorites for referance  :yesnod:

Thanks guys.  I thought you all would like to see this since when I found out about all the different overseas trucks I was blown away. A lot of cool models out there. I am still working on updating the engine lists though, that was the hardest information to find. So if any Non-USA board members (Calling Bazzi....) have any information they think should be added/changed, let me know. I also want to track down the transmission and tcase offerings for each truck but that is really hard to locate, especially on the older trucks. Oh well its a work in progress.

Its not what Toyota was thinking, it was the American public was thinking...they wanted luxury, smooth ride and creature comforts. Everyone else around the world needs dependable, bullet proof trucks. So we lose out.

That Double cab is running a bunch of Marlin goodies, I saw it on pirate the other day, its got marlin duals with 4.7s and a bunch of other marlin products. Solid axle cruisers are still in production in a lot of places IIRC. The info is in this thread I am too lazy to find it :P

damn... someone should get a hookup in australia or something and get them to import axles from wrecked cruisers.
