The tougher, the better

Legendary toughness forged at the Dakar Rally

Over 40 years of Toyota at the Dakar Rally

With its extraordinarily-challenging terrain and unbelievable speeds, success at Dakar is about more than speed; quality, durability and reliability are vital. In these extremes, trust is key, and it’s Toyota’s legendary toughness that has made them the vehicle of choice for competitors. One such competitor, Nasser Al-Attiyah, proved the tenacity of the Toyota Hilux in winning the Dakar Rally outright in 2019.
