Similar conversion of 4WD pickups into multi-use off-road vehicles had been frequently done in the U.S. by West Coast-based specialist firms. By combining the superior off-road performance of a 4WD with a multipurpose wagon body, they had created an attractive vehicle genre that answered a wide range of leisure needs.
The Hilux Surf came with a lineup of inline 4-cylinder engines, including a 2,000 cc gasoline-powered unit and two 2,400 cc diesel units (naturally aspirated and turbocharged). The front and rear suspensions used a rigid axle and leaf spring design. To improve the on-road performance, the front suspension was replaced with an independent double wishbone and torsion bar spring system in August 1985. In the following August, a wagon that classified as a "5 number" passenger car was added to the Surf line, equipped with a 2,000 cc 4-cylinder EFI gasoline engine, a 4WD system that could switch between high and low modes while running, and an electronically controlled 4-speed automatic transmission.
