The second generation was introduced in 1993 and available for export the following year. Among the evolutions was the replacement of the early leaf spring axles by independent suspension on four wheels. The petrol engine was enlarged to 2.2L, with a small power hike to 91PS (67kW), while the 2.8 Turbo Diesel was fitted with an intercooler, resulting in a power increase to 102PS (75kW). Still, the model was considered too rustic, still not possessing rear doors in the long wheel base model, and Daihatsu declined to replace it, concentrating on smaller automobiles.
Called the Bertone Freeclimber with mechanical components by Daihatsu, a BMW 2443 cc turbodiesel or one of two petrol engines (1991 cc. and 2693 cc), all six cylinders, and a Bertone designed body. The Freeclimber is a high end off-roader produced, from 1989 to 1992.
