Toyota shows off 26-feet-long Tundrasine limo/pickup concept at SEMA 2015

Article by Christian A., on November 6, 2015

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.

TOYOTA “TUNDRASINE” CONCEPT MAKES GLOBAL DEBUT AT TOYOTA'S SEMA DISPLAY

Toyota takes the Tundra pickup to new places in luxury and length with its Tundrasine concept, which made its global debut today as part of Toyota’s 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show display.

“SEMA members take their vehicles to extremes, and Toyota definitely goes to a new extreme with the Tundrasine. It stretches beyond what is normally expected of a stock Tundra,” said Steve Appelbaum, National Engagement Marketing Manager, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. “SEMA is the perfect event to debut this concept vehicle that takes the best of Tundra and turns it into the pinnacle in executive transport . . . limo style.”

The vehicle started out as a Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition 4×4 CrewMax 5.7L V8 pickup. Toyota then transformed that full-size Tundra into a larger-than-life-size limousine—hence the Tundrasine’s portmanteau name.

The Tundrasine is over 26 feet in length and has a wheelbase of 235.9 inches. The exterior is painted Midnight Black Metallic, and its eight doors open to reveal a custom and functional brown leather interior, inspired by the cockpits and passenger compartments of luxury private jets.

“People have seen plenty of limousines before, but never one quite like the Tundrasine,” said Appelbaum.

The Tundra that serves as the basis for this chauffeur-driven showstopper was—like all Toyota Tundras—assembled at the company’s facility in San Antonio. “They say everything’s bigger in Texas,” Appelbaum said, “and the Tundrasine really drives that point home—or anywhere you want to go.”

The Tundrasine can be seen November 3-6, 2015, in the Toyota display booth (#24700) located in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center at the 2015 SEMA Show.
