Toyota Motor PH Adds FX, Cargo Variants To All-New Lite Ace Line-Up (w/ Specs)


Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) strengthens its support to Filipino micro small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) with the addition of two more variants of its newest light commercial vehicle, the All-New Lite Ace.

After unveiling the Panel Van and Pickup variants during last month’s launch, the Lite Ace line-up dubbed by the automotive leader as Kasosyo sa Asenso is expanding with the introduction of the Lite Ace FX Utility Van and the Lite Ace Cargo Aluminum Van. Both variants are available for preorder in all Toyota dealerships nationwide starting August 1.

The FX Utility Van-variant has up to 12-person seating capacity (including driver), perfect as people transport, while the Cargo Aluminum Van variant best fits agricultural businesses or transportation of dry goods and other materials.


“We are very encouraged by the warm reception and positive product feedback that we received from customers when we released the first two variants of the All-New Lite Ace,” said Sherwin Chualim, TMP’s First Vice President for Vehicle Sales Operations. “One of the key strengths of the All-New Lite Ace line is its versatility and flexibility, and with the availability of the FX Utility Van and Cargo Aluminum variants, we will be able to address the needs of more entrepreneurs and business operators for efficient and economical transport.”

Owning the Lite Ace FX Utility Van and Cargo Aluminum Van will give customers peace of mind in their everyday hustle with its quality safety features like SRS Airbags. On top of this, both variants come with a 1.5-liter gasoline and are powered by 5-speed manual transmission, common among all the Lite Ace variants.

Customers can also avail special MSME financing packages for these two variants through Toyota Financial Services Philippines (TFSPH). FX Utility Van will retail at P 727,000.00 while the Cargo Aluminum Van will be priced at P 699,000.00. Customer releases start in September 2022.

  2. Hope that they'll launch the LiteAce/Daihatsu GranMax passenger van here. Suzuki APV is enjoying its spot awaiting for a competitor.
