Fourtrack

The first generation was sold from 1984 to 1993. It was available in short-wheelbase form with a convertible soft top or removable hard top and in extended-wheelbase form with metal top. Three engines were available: the petrol Toyota 3Y 2.0 L with one overhead cam, a single carburettor and 88 PS (65 kW); and two 2.8 litre diesel variants, normally aspirated with 73 PS (54 kW), or turbocharged with 88 PS (65 kW), both featuring overhead valves. Part-time 4WD was standard on all models.

The 1984-1993 models were the SWB F70, the LWB F75 and the longer wheel base F77 Pick up. In 1989 the 2.8 turbo diesels underwent a number of changes including timing chains instead of timing belts, square headlights and 4WD engagement in high range using an electric switch via a vacuum pipe.

The second generation was introduced in 1992. Among the evolutions was the replacement of the early leaf sprung axles by independent front suspension and a coil sprung rear axle. The petrol engine was enlarged to 2.2 L, with a small power hike to 91 PS (67 kW), while the 2.8 Turbo Diesel was fitted with an intercooler, resulting in a power increase to 102 PS (75 kW).
