Why was this Toyota banned in America?

Toyota is highly regarded in the United States for its trucks like the Tacoma and Tundra, but there’s a truck in the Toyota lineup that American drivers can’t own. The Toyota Hilux was once seen as one of the most innovative trucks on the road. The truck has earned a positive reputation for comfort and space in a time when most trucks were strictly heavy-duty. But you can’t buy it from US dealerships. What gives?
