8th Generation Toyota Dyna Truck
The current model, the 8th generation DYNA/TOYOACE is an OEM from HINO. Compared to the conventional model, the mileage has improved significantly. But the biggest difference is the diesel hybrid model. There were hybrid models in the past, but it has always been a parallel structure where the motor assists the engine. On the other hand, the 8th generation has the same structure as a regular passenger vehicle. This parallel structure has the advantage of being able to run solely on motor. Due to this, the 8th generation DYNA/TOYOACE is able to run with less noise and gas emission.
It has been produced from 2110 to - (2.0t)
Full model change on 2t models The high-pressure common rail injector system and DPR has been completely renewed on the diesel engine models. 5 new types of clean gas, high mileage models have been added. On the hybrid models, the special Atkinson cycle engine, N04C-UL (110kw/420Nm) engine was installed, alongside a 5-speed AMT that allowed the driver to control both the gas and brake. By using a clutch between the engine and the motor/generator, it can now operate solely on motor. This new hybrid system increased mileage by 1.0km/L on the 2t, and 1.4km/L on the 3t. On the diesel models, N04C-UM (85kw/325Nm), N04C-UN (100kw/390Nm), N04C-UP (110kw/420Nm), and the N04C-UQ (132kw/480Nm) were now available. For transmission, there were now 3 types, the 6-speed AT, 5-speed MT, and the 6-speed MT. Furthermore, on the AMT and AT models, the idle reduction feature now came as a standard, and on the AMT and MT models, the eco-run system has been added as a standard feature to help drivers increase their mileage.
The instrumental panel has been improved and adjustments have been made around the knee area and the bottom part to increase leg space. A large open tray has been added from the passenger seat to the middle. On the wide-cab model, by renewing the cabin package itself, the door opening got bigger, assistant steps got larger, space increased, as well as the comfort. The shape of the front design has been improved to decrease air resistance as well.
In terms of safety, the pillar has become thinner, while keeping the same strength, and wide-view mirrors were added, helping the drivers see more and prevent accidents. The dual mirror now came as a standard feature. Furthermore, the first VSC option for a small truck was now available. On the hybrid model, a distinct stripe was added on the grill and door. The Toyota emblem was now the same synergy blue type used on other hybrids such as Prius. For gasoline and LPG models, it now had the same design as a diesel model.
Minor improvements on the 2t model. Diesel models, excluding the diesel hybrid and N04C-UQ models, it acquired the “2009 annual gas emission standard -10% level (low emission gas vehicle)” certification. The diesel hybrid also achieved the “2009 mileage standard +10%” as well.
