Toyota has launched two all-new one-to-two tonne payload Dyna truck models.
The new Dyna 100 and 150 have improved payload, ride, performance, manoeuvrability, safety and comfort.
Major improvements include a new diesel engine, power-assisted rack and pinion steering, and a new cabin.
The new Dyna 150 has the added features of independent front suspension and an 80 litre fuel tank.
The two new Dyna models are part of a comprehensive Dyna range of 25 models, sold through a network of more than 30 specialist truck dealers.
Toyota?s new Dyna 100 and 150 have increased GVM and payload.
GVM has been increased to 3000kg and 3500kg respectively, providing a payload of up to 1.5 tonnes for Dyna 100 and up to 1.9 tonnes for Dyna 150, depending on options and tray/body type.
Performance, driveability, reliability and durability have been improved by adopting a new 3.0 litre diesel engine.
The new engine has significantly more power and torque than the superseded 1.8 litre petrol engine in Dyna 100 and the previous 2.8 litre diesel in Dyna 150.
The single overhead camshaft Toyota 5L engine delivers 66kW of power at 4000rpm and 192Nm of torque at 2400rpm.
It is matched to a five-speed manual transmission.
Dyna 100 and 150 have new high tensile steel frames, for reduced tare weight and increased rigidity.
The two-section frame includes a flat section under the cargo deck - for greater ease of modification and increased versatility.
Dyna 150 has independent front suspension, for increased active safety.
Dyna?s upper torsion bar IFS improves ride comfort and stability.
It is matched to power-assisted rack and pinion steering, for improved steering response and reduced turning circles.
Turning radii have been reduced to 4.5 metres for Dyna 100 and 4.9m for Dyna 150.
Rear suspension improvements include wider spring assemblies for increased stability and long tapered leaves to improve ride.
Dyna 150 has the added feature of dual rear wheels, for increased contact area and hence improved braking, grip and payload.
Front and side vision has been significantly increased by adopting an all-new cabin, with a larger windscreen area and bigger side windows.
Dyna 100/150's new cabin also contributes to significantly improved driver comfort.
Cabin strength, driver visibility, cabin entry and exit, cabin space and NVH have all been significantly improved.
The cabin design includes new seats and a variety of storage locations.
In addition, the Dyna 100/150 cabin has tilt and telescopic adjustable steering and UV-cut window glass as standard equipment.
Passive safety improvements include increased cabin integrity, an energy absorbing steering column and three head restraints.
The Dyna 150's fuel tank capacity has been increased by 33 percent, to 80 litres, increasing operating range.
