Toyota is the official automotive sponsor of the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field, and so to congratulate the team on its World Series Championship today at the parade, a 10-foot-tall replica of the World Series trophy will be carried in the bed of a 2017 Toyota Tundra.
There’s no shortage of over-the-top builds at the SEMA Show ever year. What gets lost in the shuffle sometimes are the more subtle, clean off-road builds that may not stand out with flashy chrome or 20-inch suspension lifts.
We love seeing big, powerful engines put in smaller, lightweight vehicles that they weren’t designed for. This Cummins diesel-powered Toyota pickup is the perfect example. Looks like it’d be a ton of fun to drive. Check out this Cummins Toyota ripping.
TORRANCE, Calif. — Toyota’s suite of 30 vehicles on display at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show will explore the past, represent the present and surprise with extreme custom builds.
“The Toyota call to action is ‘Let’s Go Places,’ said Steve Appelbaum, Toyota Motor Sales National Engagement Marketing Manager. “This phrase encompasses who we are, what we do and what we create. It’s our guiding principle and at the core of our promise to customers. Our SEMA display demonstrates the breadth of that promise across generations of Toyota vehicles.”
The Japanese automaker recently filed an application to trademark “Toyota FT-4X” for automobiles and structural parts thereof, suggesting that the company is working on a new off-road, four-wheel-drive model. The “FT” in the trademark means Future Toyota and has been used previously with the FT-86 Concept that eventually became the Scion FR-S and Toyota 86, as well as the FT-1 Concept that is believed to preview the Supra’s successor.
With the introduction of the all-new Tacoma in 2016, Toyota is following up with the new truck by offering a new 2017 TRD Pro model next month. Today, Toyota announced the starting price of the TRD Pro, a truck based on the ninth-generation Tacoma launched last year.
Visalia, Calif. – Hellwig Products, an industry leading manufacturer of sway bars and towing and hauling suspension products, has released its upgraded front and rear sway bars for the 2016 Toyota Hilux 4wd pickup.

Toyota made a big announcement today unveiling that there will be two new grade options for the 2017 4Runner, including a TRD Off-Road and a TRD Off-Road Premium model. The new TRD Off-Road 4Runner will actually be on display this weekend at the FJ Summit in Ouray, Colorado, and Off-Road.com will be onsite to check it out.
Chances are, if you’ve seen a Toyota truck driving around town or on the highway, you’ve at some point seen the TRD sticker on the rear quarter panel of the truck bed. The Tacoma and Tundra are offered with upgraded TRD packages that include Sport and Off-Road, but in 2015 Toyota took its TRD offerings to the next level with the TRD Pro.
Do you yearn to feel your truck lunge forward under moderate throttle, the hood heaving up before you? Do you ache for that gentle linear pre-runner sway into every corner? Does your current rig sport a sticker with Calvin maliciously relieving himself on a Blue Oval? If so, Dealer Services International’s Tundra Pro Runner may be the truck for you.
The Raptor is said to have no real peers. And while that is strictly true, this Toyota makes a compelling argument to look hither. But it’s not the truck’s canyon-absorbing wheel travel, miraculous hydraulic bump stops, or bad-ass 18-inch black aluminum wheels in 35-inch rubber that make this Tundra exceptional. What makes this a viable Raptor alternative is that you can buy one right off a Toyota showroom floor today. No lapse in warranty coverage, no payload penalty, and no need to max out your credit card for the modifications.
