The sixth-generation Hilux that was introduced in September 1997 consisted of a business-use truck line and a personal-use sports pickup line. The latter came with equipment and devices suitable for a multi-purpose vehicle, featuring extended cabin height and length as well as improved quietness. The extra cab model, introduced in November with the body width extended by 100 mm, was an open-deck multi-purpose vehicle featuring an adequately long cargo bed while adding two auxiliary seats to the rear of the cabin. The drivetrain configuration was either 2-wheel-drive (2WD) or 4-wheel-drive (4WD). The engine lineup consisted of 2- and 2.7-liter gasoline units (1RZ-E, 3RZ-E) as well as 2.4- and 3-liter diesel (2L-TE, 5L). The model variations included 2WD/4WD cabs and 2WD/4WD extra cabs.
