TRD Tundra Double Cab 4x4 Off-Road Concept

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2008

Featuring a 6.5-foot bed, the TRD Tundra Double Cab 4x4 Off-Road Concept boasts of a wide array of custom elements that feature new TRD products for a heavy-duty off-road truck that could pull a large car-hauler trailer.

Serving as the core of the TRD Tundra Double Cab 4x4 Off-Road Concept is an upgraded 5.7-liter V8 engine featuring the new TRD supercharger system that integrates an air-to-liquid intercooler – resulting to a power output of up to 500 hp while still compliant with emission rules on 50 states.

The TRD Tundra Double Cab 4x4 Off-Road Concept sits on TRD 17x8 forged off-road wheels wrapped in 37x12.50 R17/D BFG tires. Moreover, the pickup truck features special front and rear wide-track long-travel suspensions -- cushioning a restyled body that sports new front and rear ends as well as five-inch wider fender sides.

Furthermore, the 6.5-foot bed of the TRD Tundra Double Cab 4x4 Off-Road Concept features an integrated custom trailer hitch as well as a 28-foot custom Featherlite car-hauler trailer.

This trailer has been designed to look like a working race car trailer, but it is essentially a traveling TRD product display that showcases several new products from TRD.

For instance, the trailer allows visitors to take a closer look at the latest TRD superchargers as well as limited-slip differentials and latest wheel offerings. Visitors could also see a view a video of the actual design and construction of the TRD Off-Road Concept Tundra.

The interior of the new Toyota Tundra features washable vinyl bench seats and rubber floors. Moreover, a number of standard personal-use features in the interior are now gone or replaced.

For instance, the standard instrument panel and HVAC controls are now in black instead of gray, while gauges have been replaced by controls for the voltage, oil pressure and warning lamps. Gone are the glove box, map and door courtesy lamps as well as the lighting in the ignition key ring. Cruise control and the remote keyless entry have been removed as standard features, although they are included in separate Work Truck packages.

The 2010 Toyota Tundra boasts of fresher appearance made possible by a redesigned front grille and tail lamps. Both the Tundra and SR5 grades have similar grille designs while the Limited grade boasts of a distinct billet-style grille.

All Tundra models also feature, as standard, driver and front passenger knee airbags and height-adjustable headlamps. Likewise standard is a redesigned seven-pin towing hitch connector located above the hitch to prevent damage during high departure angle driving. The lower glovebox now features a shelf.
