The third-generation Dyna was released in February 1969. In anticipation of the growth of the expressway network and high-speed traffic, the new Dyna significantly enhanced the safety features, including the adoption of high-performance brakes and large mirrors.

The wheelbase was extended by 15 mm, and some components were shared with the Daihatsu Delta. Both gasoline and diesel engines were enhanced, and the 2.2-liter 65 hp diesel engine was replaced with a 2.5-liter 70 hp unit (Type B).

The available variants included a standard low-floor bed model, a high-floor bed model with bottom-hinged gates on three sides (payload capacity: two tons), a dump truck (two and 2.5 tons), and a long body model (ditto). A 3-ton model was added to the lineup in June 1969. The third-generation Dyna further added various improvements and remained Toyota's principal small-truck brand until 1977.
