Introduced in August 1978, the third-generation Toyota Hilux is a pickup truck produced by Toyota. It is available in 2-door and 4-door body designs and has 2WD and 4WD variants.

Powering the pickup truck is either the Toyota R-series straight-4 SOHC natural-aspirated petrol engines (available from 1.6 liter to 2.4 liter) or a 2.2 liter Toyota L-series straight-4 diesel engine that were mated to either the 4- or 5-speed manual transmission or 3-speed automatic transmission. The N40 models has longer wheelbase than that of the N30 models.

It was later replaced by the fourth-generation Hilux in August 1983.
