While wandering around the 2015 SEMA show yesterday, I literally turned the corner and ran into this “Tundrasine” concept. Pictures don’t do this vehicle justice.

Toyota Unveils Tundrasine Concept at 2015 SEMA Show

The Tundrasine redefines “full-size.”

Toyota says they built the concept specifically for SEMA to showcase how far you can take a full-size truck.

“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,” said Steve Appelbaum, National Engagement Marketing Manager, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. “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.”

I mean, really added on. The limousine truck measures out at more than 26 feet in length with a wheelbase of 235.9 inches.

The exterior is painted Midnight Black Metallic, and its “eight doors open to reveal a custom and functional brown leather interior, inspired by the cockpits and passenger compartments of luxury private jets,” according to a Toyota press release.

“People have seen plenty of limousines before, but never one quite like the Tundrasine,” said Appelbaum.

If you go to SEMA, the Tundrasine can be seen November 3-6, 2015, in the Toyota display booth (#24700) located in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

It was quite hard to get photos of this beast with the show floor being so full. Here are a collection of Toyota provided photos.

    They could go a wee bit more: a 6.5 foot bed on a crewmax.
    Why don’t they conceptualize that?

    Well there goes the entire 2017 Tundra engineering budget!!

  3. LJC says:

    I agree, what a waste of effort that could have been better spent on engineering options for the Tundra offered by its competitors. Yeah, this will lead to conquest sales for the Tundra–WRONG!

    Like I’ve pointed out in the past, there’s timid leadership guiding the Tundra and here’s another example.

    Save the time and $ and put it into updating the Tundra

  5. Mark says:

    “But why make a truck this long?”

    “Because we can.”

  6. T says:

    What a waste of company resources.I’d reallocate funds to more important things…transmission, improved hp/economy tune, electronic power steering, electric engine fan…but I’m sure they have a million reasons why those ideas are a waste of time.

  7. Prasad says:

    Is not worth the effort.

  8. Joe says:

    I agree with everyone it is a waste. As a loyal Toyota fan, I have been waiting for a heavy duty Tundra since 2007 when the company talked about producing a HD Tundra. Last year, I could not wait any longer and bought a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD. With gas price so low, Toyota should focus its effort to produce a HD Tundra.
