1992 Toyota Hilux 4X4
Stock Number: 4624
This 1992 Toyota Hilux Surf might provide the best ownership experience out of any of our imports. Having a near-identical sibling in the U.S. (Toyota 4Runner) makes finding parts a snap, and service options are plentiful. Best of all, unlike most stateside examples, this 1992 is being offered with a mere 69K verified miles. Finished in Prussian Red Pearl, the body is in good shape other than some minor dings, scuffs, and chips associated with normal use. The factory two-tone combo still looks great after nearly 30 years and is reminiscent of the 90's glory days of Japanese automotive manufacturing. Boasting a slate of recent maintenance items including new oversized rubber, this rugged, reliable, and legally imported Ute is ready to conquer fresh American terrain.
The cabin is simple, and well-engineered, having stood the test of time at nearly three decades of age. The seats are in excellent condition and only show minor wear with no rips, tears, or holes. The carpet is also in fantastic shape along with the dash and door panels. Well kept is an understatement and this interior will not disappoint for a 28-year-old SUV!
The engine featured in this Surf may not be the punchiest, but it makes adequate power and is known for its reliability. At three liters she has enough torque to get this midsize rig up to and above legal highway speeds, and it's noticeably less thirsty than its larger Land Cruiser sibling. The 3V-ZE gasoline V6 benefits from a fresh oil and filter service, as well as a new alternator, fuel filter, and cap and rotor. She purrs like a kitten with a twist of the key and sets into a constant idle. Power is fed to two or four wheels depending on the driver's preference, and an automatic transmission takes care of all the gear changes. The convenient automatic transmission shifts as is should, and the suspension and brakes are confident. The factory alloy wheels are all wrapped in 4 new Falken Rubitreks keeping the truck planted at all times.
