This model succeeded the 60 Series in October 1989, adding an 8-seater station wagon to the lineup. To enhance the product's competitiveness in the overseas markets including North America and Australia, its body length and width were increased to 4,970 mm and 1,930 mm, respectively, while the styling, specifications, and equipment were upgraded to the level of a luxury sport utility vehicle (SUV).

The wagon initially came with an inline 6-cylinder gasoline engine, while the van was fitted with a newly developed inline 6-cylinder 4.1-liter diesel engine (naturally aspirated or turbocharged). The leaf springs of the rigid axle suspension were replaced with coil springs to offer improved ride comfort, and higher-end models also adopted a full-time 4-wheel-drive system with a center differential. In August 1992, the gasoline engine was replaced with a 4.5-liter inline 6-cylinder 24-valve unit producing 215 PS. The vehicle's luxury SUV concept, as well as its superior performance and robustness under harsh natural conditions, won high admiration all around the world.
