2015 Toyota Tundra Bass Pro Shops Off-Road Edition – Stud or Dud
Coming to a Gulf States dealer this fall is a special 2015 Toyota Tundra Bass Pro Shops edition truck. It is filled with items outdoors enthusiasts need.
The Bass Pro Shops Tundra is billed as being equipped for all your off-road needs. It will come exclusively in silver and is a 4wd CrewMax SR5 with the 5.7L V-8 and towing package.
Gulf States Toyota says the package includes:
- 20” Milled-Matte Black Wheels and All Terrain Upgrade
- Custom Bass Pro Shops Carpeted Floor Mats
- Bass Pro Shops Off-Road Bed Decals
- 5” Oval Black Step Tubes
- Spray-On Bedliner
- Pocketed Fender Flares
- Stainless Steel Exhaust Tip
For those wondering, the Gulf States region includes Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas. This special edition will go on sale there in October starting at $43,975. If you purchase one, Bass Pro Shops is throwing in a fishing, hunting, camping or marine outdoor gear lifestyle package valued at $1,000.
“In the Gulf States pick-up trucks and being outdoors are a natural way of life, and that’s why we’ve developed the 2015 Toyota Tundra Bass Pro Shops Off-Road Edition,” said Marty Collins, president and general manager of Gulf States Toyota. “This vehicle not only has all the capability to take you where you want to go, but you’ll look good doing it.”
Our take: The additions are all fine and dandy, but where is the eLocker? Where is the custom paint, grille or heck even a cool topper like the A.R.E Tundra has? Finally, what the heck does a stainless steel exhaust tip have to do with the “outdoors?”
The reality is many truck makers unveiled custom trucks at the Texas State Fair. In fact, both of GM’s are going to SEMA. Why the Gulf States Toyota dealerships dropped the ball is beyond us?
Our verdict – Dud.
