Toyota Commercial Vehicles for Sale in Pakistan
Let’s Go Places
Toyota Motor Corporation is known as the largest automobile manufacture and twelfth biggest profit making company in the world. It was founded in 1937 by the Japanese entrepreneur, Kiichiro Toyoda. Toyota stepped into the commercial vehicle segment in mid 1950s by setting up a commercial dealership called Toyota Diesel Shop. Through this dealership, the Japanese automaker marketed various commercial platform forklifts, buses and trucks. After accomplishing its benchmarks in commercial vehicle production, Toyota Motor Corporation acquired the leading commercial automaker, Hino. Apart from that, Toyota retains 5.9% ownership of Isuzu, another big manufacturer of Japanese commercial vehicles.
Just like anywhere in the world, Toyota is equivalently popular and reputable in Pakistan. That is the reason why Toyota commercial vehicles are regarded as the most reliable to invest in. Authorized Toyota distributors are currently offering latest commercial vehicles for sale in the country.
Main Commercial Vehicle Technologies from Toyota
Toyota retains a rich history in commercial vehicle production, and has continuously been improving them for better utility. In addition, the automaker has also been procuring and using automotive technologies from other companies. For example, WABCO Vehicle Control Systems provides many commercial vehicle components to Hino, the subsidiary of Toyota. These components include electronic brake systems, suspension systems, stability systems and transmission automation systems.
As Toyota is highly regarded for its wide range of mechanical engines, let us spotlight some of the most noticeable engine families.

Other engines employed by Toyota commercial vehicles are Toyota TR, Toyota KD, Toyota L, Toyota R, 3F, 1HZ, 2H, 1BZ, 12H, 3RZ and 1HD.
