The SR5 has a sweet gauge cluster, which includes a tach, oil pressure, and volts. The DLX just has speed, temp, fuel.

The SR5 has a fancyier interior, bucket seats um....i think power everything too.

That's funny. My DLX has the "sweet" gauge cluster.
SR5 has A/C, bucket seats, power locks, windows, cruise control.

Correct me if I'm wrong, isn't the SR5 only available with the V6?

no, the 22re was offered in the SR5's as well; I use to think the same thing too

my DLX modle has AC, and uh, that's about it, lol, unless you want to count PS...

I'm slowly swapping in some SR5 goodness though

The dlx is just a step up from a base model, the SR5 is basically fully loaded

everything that the SR5 had stock from the factory were all options on the DLX models which is why some got purchased with the nicer gauge cluster...

Base models were just base, limited to no chrome, and Im pretty sure you could have "added on" options. DLX had a few more accessories, option of chrome, option of SR5 type cluster, rear defrost, option of power windows, locks, etc. SR5 usually came standard with those features, but I have seen SR5s with manual windows and such. But im pretty sure they came standard with chrome . and of course the sweet cluster. SR5s were not strictly v6. SR5 started in '75 with the introduction of the 20R.

What does SR5 mean anyways ? (Toyota Historical Background)

In the latter part of the 1970's, the SR5 connotation denoted an option code
for the HiLux series of trucks, similar to what the Z71 option code currently
means for an upgraded Chevy or GMC pickup or Tahoe/Yukon. Originally released
around 1975, the 'S' denoted Sport, 'R' denoted the RN motor code, and '5'
denoted the 5-speed transmission. It quickly caught on and the SR5 connotation
passed onto the Corolla and then onto other Toyota car models. Even though the
HiLux name was dropped in 1979 for the United States market, it is still used
today elsewhere in the world as the name for a Tacoma-like pickup and/or the
4Runner, depending on the market.

Note: Some other historical information shows that the Corolla had the "SR5"
designation first, then it was passed on to the HiLux series. The majority of
historical information seems to promote the HiLux first, then the Corolla,
rather than vice-versa.

Today, the SR5 generally denotes a specifc Toyota trim level, with a more
sporty look and wide flexibility for options.

(Thanks to Dianne Whitmire at Carson Toyota as well as ToyotaOffRoad.com for
the historial information.)

I have no idea if I'm SR5 or DLX but it came with chrome, bucket seats, 22re, m/t, AC, manual windows and door locks, power steering, power brakes, "sweet" gauge cluster, no cruise control. The perfect set up other than the chrome. I am slowly getting rid of it. Thanks for the yota history.
