How To Identify Your Toyota Hilux Surf

Below are short descriptions of how to identify the differences between Hilux Surf models.

Clicking on a link within a model will take you to view parts compatible with that model.

LN130 Hilux Surf (1989-1993)

The LN130 is easily identified by its 2.4 Turbo Diesel 2L-T engine, the rear window slides into the tailgate and folds down like a pickup. The first Hilux Surf to have Independent front suspension (IFS) with coil springs on the rear and torsion bar front suspension. There was a facelift model introduced in July 1991 with minor body changes including one piece front bumpers and larger headlamps. This model is often known as the 1st generation Hilux Surf.

KZN130 Hilux Surf (1991-1995)

The KZN130 has the same body type in all ways as the LN130 model but fitted with a 3.0 Turbo Diesel 1KZT engine. It also shares the same suspension with Independent front suspension (IFS) with coil springs on the rear and torsion bar front suspension. Often known as the 2nd generation Hilux Surf.

KZN185 Hilux Surf (1996-2001)

This time the KZN185 Surf shared virtually nothing with its previous KZN130. With an all new body and front and rear coil spring suspension set up. The rear tailgate lifts up so you can stand under it like a hatchback but also on very rare models it had a tailgate similar to the LN/KZN130 where the window can wind down into the tailgate and also lift up. The rear lights were clear and red. The KZN185 is often known as the 3rd generation Hilux Surf.

UK 4Runner (1991-1995)

Exactly the same model as the KZN130 Hilux Surf but re-badged as a 4Runner for the UK market, in fact it uses the KZN130 model number in the UK. With a 3.0 Turbo Diesel engine 1KZT. Some models were built with a rare 3.0 V6 engine.
