Toyota Hilux Surf

The Toyota Hilux Surf is an vehicle manufactured by Toyota, mainly in Japan, with numbers imported as used to the United Kingdom, Ireland, New and Australia. The original Surf was more than a Toyota pickup truck with a shell over the bed, but the has since undergone significant development into a mid-size vehicle.

The Hilux Surf is outside Japan, primarily in the States as the Toyota 4Runner. The generation models were briefly marketed in the United as the Toyota 4Runner. Initially all were built at Toyota’s in Tahara, Japan, but starting the 3rd Generation models production was between both the Tahara and Hino Motors’ Hamura, plant.

First generation

The Toyota Hilux pickup which the Surf was originally underwent a major redesign in for the 1984 model year. of developing an entirely new model, took an existing short-bed body, made some modifications, and added a removable top.

Thus, the first Surf is nearly mechanically to the Toyota Hilux pickup. All generation Surfs had two-doors and indistinguishable from the pickups the dashboard forward. Nearly all were to the latter half of the in fact, because the rear were actually downgraded one leaf less than the with the additional weight of the seats and fiberglass top, models tend to suffer sagging rear suspensions (a which continued to afflict generations of the Surf).

The first Surfs were in 1984 as 1984 1/2 models. For first year, all models equipped with black or fiberglass tops.

In 1986, the underwent a major front design change as it was changed a solid front axle to the independent front suspension. change made the Surf drivable at highway speeds and the space in the engine compartment to fit larger engines, such as the V6 in 1988) but arguably decreased the off-road capabilities. The Hilux at point retained the more and capable, if less refined, axle configuration Small and option changes were in 1989, but the model was left untouched in lieu of the replacement then undergoing final

Second generation (1990–1995)

The model year Surf its reliance on the Hilux pickup, as the was redesigned the surf followed. It virtually identical to the Hilux the ‘B’ pillars forward, but time gained a full integrated body in place of the fiberglass cap. It also an all new coil sprung rear system, which unfortunately to be just as prone to sagging as the springs on the rear of the previous

Nearly all second generation are 5-door models, however 1990 to 1992, a 3-door was also produced. These are somewhat rarer and were in August 1992.

It was available a range of diesel engines, a 2.4 L turbodiesel I4 up to 1993, followed by a 3.0 L I4. Small numbers were made with a normally 2.8 L diesels and 2.0 L I4 naturally-aspirated petrol The majority of petrol versions the 3.0 L V6.

Most other full-body vehicles produced at the time tailgates that opened with the glass closed. In the second generation Surf over the retractable-glass tailgate the first generation. Opening tailgates requires first the rear window into the and then lowering the tailgate, like as on a pickup truck.

In the Surf received minor updates, including larger headlamps and one-piece front At this time a Wide version was introduced featuring wheel arch flares with wider wheels and This facelift distanced somewhat from the Hilux which did not receive the same changes.

Various trim were offered ranging the base model ‘SSR’ ‘SSR Ltd’, ‘SSR-V’ and ‘SSR-X Ltd’ to the range ‘SSR-G’.

Third generation

1996 marked another redesign of the Surf. Whilst the generation Surf looks similar to the second generation, similarity largely ended its looks. It carried over the design and concept, but executed it with an all-new bodyshell on an chassis.

This time, it shared nothing with the pickup it had evolved from, and had more in with the Land Cruiser, as it its chassis with that of the LWB Cruiser Prado.

Significant from the second generation include a larger body on a wheelbase, increased interior increased cargo space, airbags, coil sprung front and rear, ABS brakes, tailgate, rack and pinion and 16 in wheels. One of the biggest mechanical was the addition of a center differential, the use of four wheel drive on surfaces without complication for the time. The prior ADD system was retained to give on-the-fly between rear and four drive as before.

Trim and designations remain similar to used for the second generation

Fourth generation (2003–present)

The generation Surf incorporated changes to the chassis and body of the but was targeted at approximately the same as the third generation. The updated looks very different the older Surfs, but is still as a mid-size quasi-luxury Off-road It continues to share most of its with the LWB Land Cruisers of age.
