1989 Toyota Hilux Pickup Overview

1989 Toyota Hilux Pickup Overview

This guide covers the Toyota Hilux / Pickup that officially started in production in the year 1989 (actually released in late 1988). Note the name "Hilux" was not available for the North American market, thus the truck was branded as the "Toyota Pickup" in that region.

Same truck, different naming convention:

  • North America: 1989 – 1995 Toyota Pickup 5th Generation
  • Rest of World: 1989 – 1997 Toyota Hilux 3rd Generation
