Toyota Dyna Review & Buyers' Guide

Our Verdict

Worth a look thanks to an impressive engine and the off-the-shelf bodies are of a high standard, but the cab could do with revising.

dyna-2010-bg2Perhaps it is a consequence of a lack of promotional effort on Toyota’s part, but the forward-control Dyna is often overlooked by people in the market for a no-nonsense load-lugger suitable for use in, say, the building trade or by a landscape gardener or roofing contractor.

In the UK it’s marketed as a short-wheelbase 3.0-tonner (the 300) and as a medium- and long-wheelbase twin-rear wheel 3.5-tonner (the 350). All the derivatives are produced as a chassis cab and as a dropside, with a tipper body up for grabs on both the short- and medium-wheelbase platforms.

The medium-wheelbase tipper body is a three-way; not an especially popular choice on this side of the Channel despite its advantages.

Top payload capacities range from 1,000kg to 1,525kg so far as the bodied chassis referred to above are concerned depending on which model you pick.

dyna-2010-bg3A sturdy workhorse that is likely to be reliable, Dyna can also be fitted with a variety of other types of body by special arrangement. 

Power comes courtesy of an impressive and recently-upgraded 136hp/300Nm D-4D 3.0-litre diesel with plenty of low-down pulling power and married to a five-speed manual gearbox.

While Dyna’s three-man cab is reasonably well equipped, it is alas rather cramped; and while the vehicle’s compact dimensions aid its manoeuvrability, its ride and handling are both mediocre.

Service intervals are set at 20,000 miles while Dyna is covered by a three-year/60,000-mile warranty.
