1979-85: Toy­ota Pickup

Diesel World - - Vintage Smoke -

The first Toy­ota pickups came to the U.S. Mar­ket in ’64 and were first of­fered with a diesel here for 1979. Un­til 1983 the diesel op­tion was for two-wheel drive only but was added to the four-wheel-drive line for ’83. The ’79 diesel was the 2.2L Model L and came only in nat­u­rally as­pi­rated form. For ’84 the nat­u­rally as­pi­rated 2.4L (Model 2L) en­gine re­placed it. For ’85 both the 2L and the tur­bocharged 2L-T were of­fered. Th­ese en­gines were avail­able in the U.S. through 1985. The L-se­ries Toy­ota diesels orig­i­nated in 1977 and con­tinue in pro­duc­tion to­day. Toy­ota has long of­fered diesels else­where in the world but didn’t fo­cus much on mar­ket­ing them here.
