7th Generation Toyota Dyna Truck
The 7th generation DYNA/TOYOACE made its debut on May of 1999. The only model change was with the 1.75t~3.5t diesel types, but a new 4t was added to the lineup to improve logistic efficiency and cost-performance and to add safety features like ABS, and increase comfort to decrease the stress load on drivers.
There were now 5 improved, economically and performance-wise, diesel engines. In September of 2002, a low-emission model was added to fulfill the requirements of low-pollution regulations enacted in 7 prefectures/cities in the Kanto region and 6 in the Kansai region. From there, emission control systems were installed in a wide range of models.
On May of 2000, the 2.7-liter gasoline models, as well as the 2.7-liter and 4.1-liter LPG engines were added. On June of 2001, the 1~1.5t models got renewed as well. Now, the standard design was the same as the higher-class models. The 7th generation “TOYOACE” had a long run until production ended in 2011. During that time, numerous improvements were made in accordance with the emission laws that got stricter over the years.
It has been produced from 1999 to 2011(2.0t), & 2001 to - (1.0t)
The 7th generation DYNA/TOYOACE is here. The parking break handle was changed to a lever from a stick. From this generation, models 2t and higher became HINO DUTRO OEM and a route-van model was added to the lineup. This model had the same design as the DYNA, HINO DUTRO, and the DAIHATSU DELTA route-van. After the B pillar, the same one on the H100 HIACE is used.
1t model renewal.
Minor improvements on the 2t model. The front side was renewed and noise level inside decreased. The LPG engine models were now the new wide-cab models. Minor improvements were made on the base car of the TECS (special manufacture paint model) model and the “aluminum doorstop” option was added.
A new EGR system and low-PM muffler was introduced. With the 4.9-liter S05D oxidation catalyst diesel engine, the amount of harmful substances in the emission gas decreased. The low-PM muffler was added as the option on October of the same year. It was compatible with engines installed in previous models as well, such as the 7th generation DYNA/TOYOACE 2t S05C (4/6-liter) and the J05C (5.3L).
Minor improvements on the 2t model. The emission gas for the RZ-FE (2.7-liter gasoline engine), 3RZ-FPE (2.7-liter LPG engine), and 1BZ-FPE (4.1-liter LPG engine) was cleaned and now in accordance with the emission gas regulations enacted in 2001. It also became a certified “low-emission gas” car. Furthermore, the ability of the alternator to generate electricity increased on the gasoline engine, LPG engine, and the CNG engine models. AT models were added to the 3RZ-FE engine models.
Minor improvements on the 1t model. A new 2.0-liter 1TR-FE model was added to the gasoline engine lineup. It improved power and environment specs (low-emission gas car) simultaneously. The fuel control was optimized for the LPG model, resulting in a cleaner emission gas. The gasoline AT models were increased to 4 models.
DPR, a clean diesel system developed with HINO, was added to the 2t models.
In the 2t lineup, a new model with a clean diesel system called DPNR was introduced. This system is based on the HINO HIMR. It is a combination of parallel hybrid N04C-TA (4.0-liter diesel engine) found in hybrid cars, the porous ceramics structure, and the NOx absorber device. It was the first mini-truck with these features. Furthermore, on the early-launch clean diesel DPR models, TECS was installed.
Minor improvements on the 2t – 4t models. Installed HINO’s N04C-A (4.0-liter), S05D-D (4.9-liter), and J05D-TB (4.7-liter turbo diesel engine) model diesel engines. Furthermore, 6-speed AT model was added to the N04C-TB and N04C-TD engine models. Deck option was added to the hybrid model. The viscous 4WD system made it possible to switch to 4WD drive on-demand, which increased the rotational performance and abrasion resistance. The independent front suspension increased comfort level and lowered the floor level by 90mm. With TECS, in addition to the minor changes made to the base model, accessories and options for each increased in variety.
Minor improvements on the 1t model. New 2.5-liter 2KD-FTV diesel engine. All models now had SRS airbags on the driver’s seat. Excluding some models, the seat skin was changed as well. TECS saw improvements as well, almost identical to the adjustments made to the 2t~4t models.
Minor improvements on the 2t – 4t diesel models. By renewing the engine to the N04C, it became the first mini truck to receive the first “low emission gas heavy vehicle (NOx / PM10% lower level)” certification. The shift lever was placed in the instrumental panel for the AT and a foldable one was used for the MT. The parking brake was lowered and also foldable. The front radiator grill was changed to the flat pattern.
Minor improvements on the hybrid models In addition to the improvements on the 2t – 4t diesel models, further improvements were seen in hybrid models such as improved N04C diesel engine, smaller driving motors with higher power, large capacity inverters, and high output batteries.
Minor improvements on the 2t – 3t diesel DPNR models, gasoline, and LPG models. The improved N04C diesel engine was installed on the DPNR models. The 2.7-liter 2TR-FE was installed on the gasoline models. This made it compatible with the new gas emission laws, including the LPG models. Furthermore, with improved environmental features, the diesel DPNR and LPG models acquired the “low emission gas heavy vehicle (2004 NOx/PM10% level for diesel DPNR, and 2004 standard NOx10% level for LPG)”. The exterior and interior received similar improvements seen in the 2t – 4t diesel models and hybrid models. In accordance with the new license regulations, more gasoline models you can drive with a regular license were introduced.
Minor improvements on the 1t diesel models and gasoline models. The new 1KD-FTV diesel engines with the clean diesel DPR system was installed. Catalyst for the gasoline models were improved as well to meet the 2004 emission gas regulations. The front radiator grill became flat. The foldable parking break was lowered to increase productivity.
Minor improvements on the LPG models. In addition to the changes made to the diesel and gasoline models, the 1TR-FPE LPG engine with LPG EFI-LP was installed, acquiring the “low emission gas vehicle (NOx10% low)” certification.
Minor improvements on the 2t diesel and gasoline models. With the optimized power system and high catalyst DPR, a new diesel model that meets the “2015 heavy vehicle mileage standard” was added to the lineup. Engine mobilizer system now came as a standard feature.
Minor improvements on the 1t model. Large side turn lamps was added, along with the high-mount stop lamp on the route van. The rear door was changed to a hinged double door.
Partial improvements made to the 2t model. With an improved diesel engine, with higher torque at lower rotation rate, the diesel hybrid increased its mileage. All models now came with a standard large side turn lamp, meeting the new lamp regulations.
Minor improvements on the 2t model. Some diesel models with the N04C-TJ engines were changed to the N04C-UE engines to improve mileage. This fulfilled the “2015 heavy vehicle mileage standard” and made this model eligible for environmental vehicle tax discounts.
Minor improvements on the 2t model. Some diesel models with the N04C-TJ engines were changed to the N04C-UE engines and the manual transmission was changed to 6-speed AT. Mileage improved and the vehicle met the “2015 mileage standard”, making it eligible for environmental vehicle tax discounts.
Minor improvements on the 1t model. With high catalyst DPR improvements on diesel models, the model fulfilled the 2008 emission gas regulations. With mileage improvements due to piezoelectric injectors, it also met the “2015 mileage standards”. This made it eligible for environmental vehicle tax discounts. Furthermore, engine immobilizers now came as a standard feature for diesel and gasoline models.
Minor improvements on the 1t model. With wide-view mirrors on the passenger side to check the lower part of the car and the front fog lamp, safety specs improved. The diesel model now had a button to cleanse emitted gas manually (to clean catalyst). Excluding some models, the NOx level reached 10% below the standard, acquiring the “2009 gas emission standard -10% level”.
Minor improvements on the 1t model. Similar to the earlier improvements on cargo and dump, the wide-view mirrors/front fog lamps/emission gas cleanse button (for catalyst) now came as a standard feature.
