Stretching its full-size pickup to extreme levels, literally, Toyota unveiled its Tundrasine concept Tundra pickup truck at SEMA today in Las Vegas, using the truck as a prop during its press conference in which Toyota racers, such as rally and off-road racer Ryan Millen, and Toyota executives hopped out of the limo-truck for their introduction to the event.

Beginning life as a Tundra 1794 Edition 4×4 CrewMax 5.7L V8 pickup, Toyota transformed the truck into a truck limo – complete with its cargo bed still intact. The Tundrasine stretches over 26 feet and has a wheelbase of 235.9 inches. It features a Midnight Black Metallic paint job, has eight doors, and the interior features a high-end brown leather that is meant to have the feel of a luxury private jets.

“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 Tundrasine, like all Tundras, was constructed 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 may never hit the trails, but it has enough space to fit the whole party and make sure the Toyota peeps will travel in style wherever they go.
