SEMA 2007: Toyota Tundra TRD Double Cab Off-Road Concept

This image was lost some time after publication.

Looks like we may have gotten Toyota's goat enough with that shot of the Toyota Nastruck trailer getting hauled around by a diesel-powered Chevy Silverado Heavy-Duty that they've responded by building their own Tundra concept to show off here at SEMA. It's the Toyota Racing Development Tundra Double Cab Off-Road Concept truck and it's built with supposedly enough "umph" to carry a large car-hauler trailer. Although a car-hauler trailer's a start — we somehow think even with the supercharged V8 under the hood, they'll probably still need the Silverado HD (or other diesel-powered HD pickup, to carry the Nastruck trailer.

TRD TUNDRA DOUBLE CAB OFF-ROAD CONCEPT AND TRAILER

The TRD Tundra Double Cab 4x4 Off-Road Concept starts with a 6.5-foot bed. It combines an extensive list of custom features designed to showcase new TRD products on a rugged heavy-duty off-road truck that can be used to pull a large car-hauler trailer.

The 5.7-liter V8 engine has been upgraded with the new TRD supercharger system that incorporates an air-to-liquid intercooler that boosts output to approximately 500 horsepower and is 50-state emission legal.

The truck uses TRD 17x8 forged off-road wheels with 37x12.50 R17/D BFG tires on special front and rear wide-track long-travel suspensions. The body has been aggressively restyled with new front and rear fascias and five-inch wider fender sides. A custom trailer hitch has been incorporated into the bed.

The 28-foot custom Featherlite car-hauler trailer was designed and built to resemble a working race car trailer, but is actually a traveling TRD product display featuring many new TRD products.

Inside the trailer, visitors can get a look at the internal workings of the latest TRD superchargers and limited-slip differentials, see the latest wheel offerings or view a video of the actual design and construction of the TRD Off-Road Concept Tundra.
