Have you seen a life-sized toy SUV? Technically, the Tonka 4Runner concept vehicle – a collaboration between Toyota and Funrise Toy Corp. -- is both a toy and a vehicle.
This Tonka 4Runner concept vehicle – produced with the theme “the ultimate off-road adventure” -- is being showcased at Toyota’s booth (#24700) at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
It is powered by the same 4.0-liter V6 engine that powers the production 4Runner on which it was derived. The Tonka 4Runner boasts of an ample ground clearance thanks to its ten-inch Bulletproof Suspension lift kit, which includes King 8×2.5-inch and 10×2.5-inch coilovers and an array of Bulletproof Suspension components. Tonka 4Runner’s welded bumpers, roof rack, side steps and ladders are also designed by Bulletproof.
The concept vehicle features sporty bold matte black and yellow Tonka graphics for a recognizable appearance, as accentuated by 21-inch Ultra Motorsports Type 250 Colossus wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 38×15.50R20LT off-road tires.
Over each tire are Rigid Industries LED lights. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the Tonka 4Runner concept vehicle is the pop-up tent on its roof, which could be very good news for those who love the outdoors.
The Tonka 4Runner marks the latest collaboration between Toyota and Funrise Toy, which makes Tonka toys for Hasbro. Toyota and Funrise also came together to build the Tonka Tundra monster truck.
Toyota’s Tonka Tundra monster truck was displayed at the carmaker’s booth at the 2014 SEMA Show. It rides on new set of 20-inch custom Moto Metal wheels wrapped in 40-inch Open Country M/T Toyo tires. Toyota Racing Development (TRD) upgraded the engine of Toyota Tonka Tundra by employing to a new supercharger, exhaust, Big Brake kit, oil cap and an air filter.
Sitting on a 10-inch-plus custom Bulletproof suspension, the Tonka Tundra boasts of a striking livery in bright red, yellow and black colors. The Toyota Tonka Tundra monster truck is fitted with a multitude of LED light bars as well as the “Emergency Rescue” logos. It is equipped with automatic side steps, bed side steps and bed rear step from AMP research as well as a custom roof rack by Addictive Desert Designs.
Its front and rear bumpers were courtesy of Fab-Fours Bumpers, while its pocket-style fender flares were made by Bushwacker.
Inside, the Toyota Tonka Tundra was customized by Katzkin and comes with a new Sony head unit, a Soundmaster audio installation, JL Audio amplifier, subwoofer and speakers as well as Scosche audio wires, cables and sound deadener.
