The Daihatsu HighJet Dumping Kei Truck from 1998 is a versatile and capable vehicle with a focus on performance and efficiency. With its 4WD system, manual transmission, and efficient 660cc engine, this truck is equipped to handle various terrains and tasks. Here's a closer look at its features and capabilities:

  • 4WD System with High and Low Ratio Options: One of the standout features of this Kei truck is its 4WD system, particularly when paired with the manual transmission. Unlike the automatic version, the manual transmission offers both high and low ratio 4WD options. This provides greater flexibility and control, especially when navigating challenging terrain. With the manual transmission, you can engage high ratio 4WD while on the move, offering enhanced versatility.

    Efficient 660cc Engine: The Daihatsu HighJet is powered by a surprisingly quiet and smooth 660cc 3-cylinder engine. Despite its small capacity, it delivers good performance, especially when not heavily loaded. The first gear is designed for low-speed movement, making it ideal for starting when carrying a load. Typically, starting in 2nd gear is sufficient, but it's important to be cautious with the clutch. Given the rural landscapes often encountered in Japan, the vehicle's low gearing is well-suited for such conditions.

    The gear shifts are light and easy, allowing you to quickly reach 5th gear on the road. When downshifting for curves, intersections, and roundabouts, it's advisable to shift into a gear one higher than you would in a standard car (e.g., use 4th instead of 3rd and 3rd instead of 2nd).

    While the Daihatsu HighJet can cruise comfortably at 50 mph, it can reach speeds of 60 mph, although road and engine noise become more pronounced at higher speeds. The maximum speed is approximately 75 mph, but driving at 70 mph would be considered excessive. It's important to note that this is not a fast vehicle.

    Excellent Maneuverability: The Daihatsu HighJet is known for its exceptional maneuverability. It excels at reverse parking and can fit into spaces that conventional commercial trucks in the UK cannot. Its compact turning circle is particularly noteworthy, making it easy to navigate through tight spaces.

    Mileage and Well-Maintained: With 53,000 kilometers on the odometer, this Kei truck boasts a well-documented history of reliable performance. Despite its small engine and lightweight construction, the Daihatsu HighJet is a durable vehicle when properly maintained. In fact, it's not uncommon to find these trucks with significantly higher mileage, a testament to their longevity when cared for.

    4WD Capability: Whether you're tackling city streets or venturing off-road, the 4WD capability of the Daihatsu HighJet ensures you have the traction and control needed to navigate various terrains. This capability adds to the truck's versatility and makes it suitable for a wide range of applications.

    Timeless Design: Simplicity is a defining feature of the Daihatsu HighJet. Its design is refreshingly straightforward, free from over-designed and overly complex controls or unnecessary trim. This simplicity extends to its driving experience, providing a breath of fresh air for those who appreciate a straightforward vehicle.
