New for this generation is the Hino Dutro, as Toyota owns shares in Hino. In addition to the diesel engine, the Hybrid is also sold in Japan.

The Dyna and its twin Toyoace and Dutro were built on the U300 platform for Standard Cab, or U400 platform for the Wide Cab.

Even though they were built on the U300 and U400 platforms, for marketing purpose they still used Dyna 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, and 350 which indicate the payload. The Dyna 100 is currently available with a 2.5 litre D-4D common rail turbo diesel engine offering 88bhp. The Dyna 150 is a chassis/cab version of the Dyna truck, with twin rear wheels, and an uprated 102bhp engine, shared with the Hilux and Hiace.

These vehicles have emission levels which meet the stringent Euro IV requirements which kicked in in Europe in 2005, in Singapore in October 2006 and which will kick in in Japan in February 2007.
