Thanks in advance, I don't understand Toyota's numbering system. Is my 2007 TD V8 a 70 series or a 76 series. The owner manuel does not help.

Trev your Troopy is a 78 Series.

75 Series was applied to both Troopies and Trays with leaf springs front and rear and finished around 1999 or 2000.

They then went to coiled springs on the front ends and leaf rears and the numbers became the 78 Series for the Troopies and 79 Series for the Trays.

When the range came out with the V8 as standard they brought out the 4 door wagon which is the 76 Series and retained the 78 and 79 series designations for the Troopy and Tray respectively.

Altogether the new V8 range is marketed as the 70 Series Range of Vehicles.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Not sure how they set up the numbering system for this series.

I believe they do use or have used other 70 series numbers, IE 71, 72, 73 series etc etc over the years and in other countries.

I think the Bunderra was a 73 or 74 series vehicle as one example??

I never cease to be amazed by what is out there. I had been puzzling over the series and codes for a few weeks but my googling had not given me any meaningful results.
Thanks for that.
cheers

Its a confusing system but one that basically applies to all Toyotas whether they are trucks ,buses or tractors.

Some of the rules on how they make up their apha numeral code have changed.
On earleir models,an extra "1" added to the base number meant turbo ,eg A BJ73 is a 4 cyl n/a diesel and BJ74 is a turbo model and the same with 60 and 61 series and 70 and 71 series.
Later, the turbo designation was attached to the alpha code
by using the letter "D" (although it could mean direct injection as most turbos are DI)

For a VDJ76 ,VD = V8 diesel turbo/direct injection,J = landcruiser,7 =series, 6= equals wagon

Johns link answers your question comprehensly.
The short answer is that Toyota 70 seriers means just that, covering all that have been built from mid 80's.

Different numbers after the "7" used to be wheel base code.

letters before number indicate what motor.
