The first Full Size Toyota Truck called the T100 but did you know the T100 wasn’t really built by Toyota. Knowing that its own experience manufacturing full-size pickups wasn’t very thorough, Toyota farmed out engineering and manufacturing to Hino, a Toyota subsidiary that’s primarily responsible for commercial vehicles, buses and heavy trucks.
When the T100 debuted in 1993, its sole engine was a 3.0-liter V6 that made just 150 horsepower. While power bumped to 190 hp in 1995, Toyota still didn’t give it a V8 — just a larger V6. And a 4-cylinder model was even offered beginning in 1994. The T100 added a dealer-installed supercharger option in 1997, bringing power to 245 hp.
