When the third-generation Hiace van and wagon went through a minor makeover in August 1985, the Hiace truck was fully redesigned. The new Hiace truck borrowed the basic design of the Dyna that was remodeled in September 1984, modifying it to suit 1-ton truck specifications. It should be noted that the Toyoace also adopted the Dyna as the base model at this time, turning the Hiace truck, Toyoace, and Dyna into sister vehicles. It also meant that the Hiace truck line branched away from the Hiace van and wagon line at this time, although it still retained the Hiace brand name. Unlike the Toyoace that became nearly identical with the Dyna in appearance, the Hiace truck kept some distinguishing design elements including the front grille. The Hiace truck also offered the "super single just low" model featuring small-diameter, ultra-low-profile rear tires to minimize the floor height.

"Hiace" combines "high" and "ace," signifying a vehicle that surpasses its predecessor, the Toyoace.
