NEW DYNA RANGE FROM TOYOTA
Toyota has launched a new Dyna truck range with GVMs (Gross Vehicle Mass) ranging from 4495kg to 8500kg.
Eighteen new Dyna model variants join existing Dyna 100 and Dyna 150 models available through a network of 33 specialist Toyota truck dealers.
The new-generation Dynas have improved performance, comfort, convenience and safety features across the board.
They replace the previous Dyna 200-400 and Dyna II 4500-8500 models.
The Dyna nomenclature has been revised to reflect vehicle payload - with models from 200 to 550.
The new Dyna range offers the choice of narrow and wide cabins, three engines, two transmissions, six wheelbases, a low chassis height model and a safety pack option on the 200 and 250 model range.
There are three derated models to suit Class 1 licence drivers.
Two new Euro-3 emission standard turbocharged, direct-injection diesel engines power the Dyna range.
The new 4.1-litre EFI-equipped 15B-FTE engine offered in the six Dyna 200 models delivers 100kW of power at 2600rpm and 382Nm of torque from 1200 to 2200rpm. It is matched to a five-speed manual transmission.
The 15B-FTE engine has a breakthrough lightweight radiator core with asymmetrically louvred fins for improved cooling.
Dyna 250, 350, 450 and 550 models share the new 4.6-litre common-rail S05C-TB engine, with 108kW of power at 2900rpm and 410Nm of torque at 1700rpm.
It is matched to a five-speed manual transmission in Dyna 250 and a six-speed transmission in Dyna 350, 450 and 550 models.
The Dyna 200, 250, 350 and 450 models have 12-inch differentials and large diameter axle shafts for optimum durability.
The Dyna 550 model has a 13-inch differential for optimum durability.
Special attention has been paid to suspension design, to improve ride comfort, handling, stability and durability.
All Dyna models have front stabiliser bars. New Dynas have front and rear leaf springs.
Driverís SRS airbag, driver's seatbelt pretensioner and ABS anti-skid brakes with Brake Assist are offered as an Option Pack on new Dyna 200 and 250 models and are standard on new Dyna 350, 450 and 550 models.
Driver comforts include air conditioning, tilt and telescopic adjustable steering and radio cassette player.
Cabin strength, driver visibility, cabin space, cabin entry and exit and NVH have all been significantly improved.
All Dyna models have separate driver and passenger seats, with a centre seat backrest that folds down to create an armrest/console.
The Dyna truck series will be distributed under the Hino Dutro brand from September 2004.
