Can I use Dexron III instead of T-IV?

No. The T-IV is a different type of automatic transmission fluid that isn’t intended to be a Dexron II or III replacement.

What is the difference between ATF WS and ATF T-IV?

Toyota uses a full synthetic blend, referred to as WS, for their 2008 and later cars that they claim do not require replacement and is effective for the life of the car. Type IV is not synthetic, so it needs to be replaced every 60k miles.
