Toyota Tundra gets stretched, given 8 doors
If one doesn't find the standard Toyota Tundra large enough, the company has unveiled a bigger and bolder concept for their full-size truck. Called the Tundrasine, the standard Tundra has been stretched significantly and given eight doors.
“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. 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.” said Steve Appelbaum, National Engagement Marketing Manager, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A.
There are no visual changes made to the front and rear of the Tundra, retaining the bold chrome grill up front and the has the same bed found in the CrewMax model. The most obvious change is the four extra doors, stretching the Tundra's wheelbase by 2286 mm. Because of its extended length, the truck gets an extra pair of running boards.
Inside, the Tundrasine's leather seats are trimmed in saddle brown, along with portions of the door panels. With luxury as its theme, the truck also gets six ottoman seats. Each of the rear passengers also get their own set of map lights mounted to the Tundrasine's ceiling.
The result of the extended body and luxurious interior additions is a curb weight of 3,618 kilograms, 1,037 more than the standard Tundra CrewMax. The Tundrasine is powered by the same 5.7 liter V8 that pushes out 376 PS and 543 Nm of torque.
“People have seen plenty of limousines before, but never one quite like the Tundrasine.” adds Appelbaum.
