It has been manufactured in the station wagon, utility truck, and convertible and hardtop versions. Due to its more longevity and reliability, it has become more popular in different countries, especially in the regions of Australia and South Sudan where it is considered as best-selling four-wheel drive and body-on-frame vehicle in those days. Toyota broadly tests it in the outback of Australia, which has been considered as one of the hardest operating environments for both of the terrain and temperature.
