Toyota is showing off a limousine version of its Tundra pickup truck at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. This concept is called Tundrasine – a combination of “Tundra” and “limousine.”
From the name, we know that it is an extended and more luxurious rendition of the Tundra. It is based on the Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition 4×4 CrewMax 5.7L V8 full-size pickup. Then, the Japanese carmaker extended the length of this Tundra to become an eight-door limo-styled pickup.
As a matter of fact, the Tundrasine features a length of over 26 feet and a wheelbase of 235.9 inches. Its exterior is wrapped in Midnight Black Metallic finish while its interior is draped in custom and functional brown leather interior, taking inspiration from the cockpits and passenger compartments of luxury private jets.
Steve Appelbaum, National Engagement Marketing Manager at Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., remarked that just like SEMA members who takes their vehicles to the extreme, Toyota is showing off what it considers to be a new extreme with the Tundrasine.
He described it as the best version of a Tundra that offers limo-type executive transport. He noted that while people have seen varieties of limousines, they have never seen one quite like the Tundrasine.
Since the Tundra used as the basis for the Tundrasine was assembled in San Antonio, Texas, the limo-pickup further gives point to the catchphrase, “Everything’s bigger in Texas.”
Visitors can take a good look at the Tundrasine at the 2015 SEMA Show by visiting Toyota’s display booth (#24700) at the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
