Rolling out of the factory as a 2006 model, it took the vehicle two years to move into the GCC as it debuted here as a 2008 model. With unique retro styling which is instantly recognisable from the front end with its white front grille-mounted in front of black mesh. Round headlights complete the look on each end and in case you wanted to keep the front end from damage during off-road treks, a metal brush guard or bull guards were made as an optional extra.
Around the back is a single unit door that swings out. Some models would have the spare wheel mounted here while others were left bare. Models that didn’t feature a white coat of paint usually had white roofs with later models being readily available with matching colour or black painted top halves instead.
To enhance the vehicle's unique look, the rear doors were shrunk and instead of opening like the front doors, they would swing open (suicide doors).

Interior and exterior options depend on what trim levels or features were ticked off when purchased. Radio tuner, black fabric seats and air conditioning all came as standard, whereas options such as Bluetooth, cruise control, reverse camera, rear parking sensors, premium sound system, media inputs and powered accessories came as extras.
Throughout the years, all models were equipped with Brake Assist, Anti-Lock Brakes, Vehicle Stability Assist and a single 4-litre V6 engine mated to either a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual gearbox.
Additionally, minor changes were made to the appearance over the years both inside and out.
TRD Special models were made available with a black coat of paint with matching roof, 16-inch rims on each corner covered in off road rubber, unique badging, off road ready shocks and slight revisions to the vehicles mechanics for a finely tuned experience.
