Toyota recreates ‘Back to the Future’ Tacoma to celebrate trilogy’s 30 years

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 26, 2015

In the hit film “Back to the Future Part II,” Marty McFly went forward in time from October 1985 to October 21, 2015. Decades after the film was first shown, October 21, 2015 did arrive but the situation is much different from what the second installment of the trilogy had envisioned.

Now, Japanese carmaker Toyota is celebrating that date by recreating McFly’s dream truck using the MY2016 Toyota Tacoma as a base. Toyota modified the MY2016 Tacoma to make it appear like the one shown in the film.

For instance, the Back to the Future Tacoma features custom 1985 Toyota truck exterior paint and mud flaps as well as custom tailgate with the iconic “TOYOTA” logo and custom vintage headlight and taillight design. Likewise, the modern version of McFly’s pickup is provided with custom front and rear tubular bumpers, custom light bar and custom “D-4S” fuel injection badging.

It also features an off-road suspension and Toyota Racing Development (TRD) wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich tires. Additionally, the Back to the Future Tacoma pickup features KC HiLites Gravity LED G46 and KC HiLites Daylighter Gravity LED.

Back to the Future fans in in Los Angeles, New York and Dallas have a chance to view the McFly’s truck in major tourist destinations. Toyota commenced sales of the MY2016 Toyota Tacoma in September. In celebration of three decades of the box office hit, there will be release of the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy on Blu-ray & DVD.

Back to the Future stars Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown. They travel through the past, present and the future in Doc Brown’s time-travel car machine, the DeLorean.

Brought by filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy on Blu-ray & DVD includes a bonus disc filled with over two hours of extra features like a short titled “Doc Brown Saves the World!”

Based in Japan, Toyota is considered as the largest carmaker in the world in terms of auto sales and profit. It has been developing and building cars and trucks under quite a few brands like Toyota, Lexus and Scion.

The Japanese carmaker has already built over 25 million cars and trucks in North America. Toyota, through its around 1,800 North American dealerships, sold over 2.5 million cars and trucks in 2013. It currently operates around 14 manufacturing sites and employs over 40,000 people in the region.
