The Taliban, which refers to itself as the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, is a Deobandi Islamist religious-political movement and military organization in Afghanistan, regarded by multiple governments and organizations as terrorists. 

The Taliban, or “students” in the Pashto language, emerged in the early 1990s in northern Pakistan following the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan. It is believed that the predominantly Pashtun movement first appeared in religious seminaries – mostly paid for by money from Saudi Arabia – which preached a hardline form of Sunni Islam.

The promise made by the Taliban – in Pashtun areas straddling Pakistan and Afghanistan – was to restore peace and security and enforce their own austere version of Sharia, or Islamic law, once in power.

Now after capturing entire Afghanistan which are those vehicles Taliban as well as ISIS or Al-Qaeda other terrorist militants while moving or bombing in the battlefield.

1. Toyota Hilux

Toyota Hilux pickup truck is very popular vehicle among terrorist groups. Though Toyota does not do business with Taliban, there’s nothing much that it can do if stolen Toyota Hiluxes and Land Cruisers end up in Afghanistan.

Toyota has several measures to its major several supply chain in middle east asia, ensuring that no Toyota vehicles or replacement parts are sold to terrorist-linked or paramilitary organizations or individuals.

The measures seem to be working well. Although many media outlets are still associating the Taliban with the Toyota Hilux, latest footages from Afghanistan show a distinct lack of Toyota vehicles.

2. Toyota Land Cruiser 

For more than a quarter-century, Toyota’s sturdiest pickups and SUVs have been the Taliban’s vehicles of choice. They’re rugged enough for Afghanistan’s terrain, and they have air-conditioning to beat the summer heat. Many researchers that have found that they use Toyota Land Cruiser retrofitted with anti-aircraft guns.

3. Ford Ranger Truck

A report by Forbes said as of 30-June, at least 270 Ford Rangers owned by the Afghan military have fallen into Taliban hands. Ford is of course, an American company, so this presents a rather tricky situation for the US government. This single Ford Ranger has a standard price tag of $53,000.
