Sometime today, the 2015 Toyota TRD Pro will begin one of the most grueling tests of vehicle endurance – the 47th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Over the next several days, the truck will race across the desert landscape with a team of Toyota engineers and drivers pushing the truck to its limits.
Here is a teaser video from Toyota on how it built the truck.
You can follow along with the race results at the official SCORE website here.
Whatever happens, it should be good entertainment for fans and for truck enthusiasts. Toyota has a lot riding on this event and a catastrophic mechanical issue could really hurt their reputation. On the flip side, finishing strong could do wonders for the new TRD Pro product line.
In the end, Toyota is surely going to learn something from this experience. Especially with their chief engineer Mike Sweers riding in the back. Hopefully, the ride isn’t too bumpy!

The bed bounce will probably make Swears sick, then maybe he’ll do something about it.
You gotta drive a 14 model, bed bounce is flat gone! nice change in the truck, not sure how they did it but its gone. drive an F150 and it will feel like an earthquake hits you every time you hit a bump compared to a 14 tundra.
I can’t WAIT to drive the new 2015 Ford F-150. If I can’t get it as a press loan, I’ll be going to a dealer ASAP. Their executives are claiming the drop in weight has radically improved the ride quality. We will see.
