The 3rd generation Hilux Surf is easily one of our favorites here at JDM Sport Classics due to its durability, reliability, and usability in nearly any scenario you put it up against. Widely regarded as the best midsize SUV of its era, the N185 was a huge leap forward from its predecessor. This generation proved to be an easy to service, fun to drive, and tremendously well received vehicle to its USDM counterpart.
This N185 Hilux Surf saw many improvements over it’s predecessor, a larger body on a longer wheelbase, increased interior space, increased cargo space, dual airbags, ABS, lift-up tailgate, coil-spring suspension all around, rack and pinion steering, and aerodynamic contour designed glass headlights. Additionally, Hilux Surf versions immediately moved to 16-inch wheels and gained a center differential, enabling the use of four-wheel drive on hard surfaces without complication for the first time. The 1998 also featured a slightly updated interior, with many of the electronics showing a more updated look, such as buttons, climate control, and most noticeable, the layout of the dashboard.
This Hilux Surf is powered by the ultra reliable 2.7L 3RZ-FE gasoline motor that is paired to a 4 speed automatic transmission. An incredibly efficient and reliable 4 cylinder that can be useful for just about any application. Arguably one of Toyota’s most reliable gas motors, evidenced by the fact it was used across a variety of different models and generations. This motor was additionally found in many US vehicles, making parts sourcing and servicing options a breeze.
Part of the reason that these Surf’s are a favorite of ours here at JDMSC is their simplicity. These Hilux’s truly show that you don’t need a Bentley to be comfortable. This Hilux utilizes few features, however they are all incredibly practical, such as its power windows, power adjusting mirrors, electronic rear parking mirror, cold A/C, good heat, and tilt/telescoping steering wheel! The exterior is in good condition, found in an eye catching white, which accents the body lines well.
With classic retro aesthetics blended with a modern, easy to service drivetrain and selectable 2WD/4WD capability this Hilux Surf SSR-G would make for a wonderful daily driver, fun family hauler, or determined weekend warrior.
