1999 Toyota Chaser specs: mpg, towing capacity, size, photos
The Toyota Chaser is a mid-size 4 door sedan produced by the Toyota Motor Company, Japan. It's a derivative of Toyota Mark II, and only officially sold in Japan. The Toyota Chaser has been known as one of the 'triplets' or 'quartets' of Toyota, because it shares the same chassis with the Toyota Cressida/ Mark II, and Cresta. Most of the models use double wishbone coil springs, especially beginning with the X81 series. The Chaser and its platform sisters are considered a rung below the Crown, but offers more sporty character due to its slightly lower body and powerful engine (in fact, most of the 2.5L Toyotas are powered by the 1JZ engine). The Chaser was the competitor to the Nissan Skyline sedan.
Used Toyota Chaser
The Chaser was first produced in July 1977 with chassis codes X30, X31, X40 and X41. They were powered by the 4 cylinder 1.8L 3T-U, 4 cylinder 2.0L 18R-U and 6 cylinder 2.0L M-U/ M-EU engines - all single cam engines tuned for economy rather than performance. All models were listed as typical of larger Toyota sedans.
Production swapped to the X51 and X61 Chaser in 1980 with the addition of the 6 cylinder 2.0L 1G-EU (single cam) and 1G-GE (twincam) engines.
The boxy but elegant shaped X70 was launched in 1984.
In 1989, the X81 series of Chasers were introduced to the Japanese market. The following models were offered: XL, XG, Raffine, SXL, Avante, Avante Twin Cam 24, GT Twin Turbo and Avante G, with the GT Twin Turbo model the most powerful variant, powered by the 1G-GTE engine putting out 210PS (207hp/ 154kW) at 6200 rpm. The Avante G model was the highest special edition model in terms of equipment. In August 1989, 2 more models were added to the Avante lineup: the Avante G-L, an even more luxurious model of the Avante G (which was already highly equipped for a car of the time), and the new Avante G, with a 3.0L normally-aspirated 7M-GE engine replacing the 2.0L supercharged 1G-GZE from the previous model.
