Toyota Shows Its Off-Road Chops at 2021 SEMA Show

If you think Toyota cars are only good for getting top fuel economy, the automaker is keen on expanding your perspective. At the 2021 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Toyota unveiled wild custom trucks all built in-house at the Toyota Motorsport Garage — all of which displayed awesome off-road capabilities. Here’s what the brand had on display.

Toyota Tacoma “Tacozilla” Concept

Paying tribute to campers of the 1970s and 1980s, the Toyota Tacoma “Tacozilla” Concept is a fully insulated truck up-fitted with a pass-through camper that includes a full bathroom, hot water shower, kitchen stove, and even a table.

Toyota TRD Desert Chase Tundra

Designed as a support vehicle for off-road racing, this fearsome Toyota Tundra uses TRD-tuned suspension with extra-long travel and a wide body kit. Its roll bar can hold two spare tires, and it carries a full complement of recovery gear so you can help less-capable, stranded cars.

Tacoma Overlanding Concept Vehicle

The Tacoma Overlanding Concept doesn’t have a camper, but it does have a rooftop tent to ensure you can still get a good night’s sleep out in the wilderness. And with Dakar rear leaf springs, ultra-tough skid plates, and an adjustable suspension system, it can go just about anywhere.

When it comes to off-road performance and ruggedness, few automakers have a track record as strong as Toyota’s. Visit Ken Nelson Toyota in Dixon, Illinois, to learn more about the Tundra, Tacoma, and other off-road-capable Toyota rides.

For the 2020 model year, Toyota introduces two new trim levels for the Tundra. This brings its total amount of model and trim configurations up to 17.

The two new trims for the Tundra full-size pickup are the TRD Sport Premium and the TRD Off Road premium. The new TRD Off Road Premium elaborates on the regular Off Road model by adding Connected Services by Toyota and other features like premium audio and navigation. Other upgrades include leather seating, dual-zone automatic climate control, blind spot monitoring and a spray-in bed liner.

Of course, the TRD Off Road Premium also comes with all of the features of the base Off Road trim, like the Bilstein shock absorbers, all-terrain tires and fuel tank protector plates.

The new TRD Sport Premium embellishes the TRD Sport trim. It adds many of the same features that the TRD Off Road Premium adds to the TRD Off Road, such as navigation and premium audio.

These two new trims are perfect if you want high-end luxury, but still need to have a TRD-level of off-road capability. However, if you prefer a trim with the most functionality, tech, and comfort on the inside, go with the range-topping 4×4 CrewMax Platinum trim.

Experience the two newest versions of the Tundra for yourself when you stop by Ken Nelson Toyota to test-drive them.
