Official Toyota Tonka 4Runner Design and Features
It seems that Christmas has come early here at White River Toyota. With the 2015 SEMA Show come and gone, we have discovered a whole new level of performance and excitement in the Toyota brand. Like a kid on Christmas morning, we got to see countless Toyota concepts unwrapped at the recent auto show, with each new concept building on the excitement and fun of the last. A definite highlight of the show was the gargantuan Toyota Tonka 4Runner Concept. Built on a 2016 Toyota 4Runner foundation and infused with childlike wonder, the official Toyota Tonka 4Runner design and features have blown our collective automotive minds.
Toyota Tonka 4Runner Concept Design
Designed and built in collaboration with Funrise Toy Corporation, the Toyota Tonka 4Runner Concept brings our childhood sandbox adventures to life with a life-size Tonka toy. Powered by the same 270-horsepower 4.0-liter V-6 as current Toyota 4Runner models, the Tonka 4Runner combines real-life performance with fantastic style and design. Power, performance and design are just part of the equation that is made even more spectacular by a head-turning matte black and Tonka yellow paint scheme that extends to the interior.
A true Tonka truck would not be complete without some monstrous wheels and tires that will dominate the road or the trail. Equipped with a 10-inch Bulletproof Suspension lift kit, the Toyota Tonka 4Runner takes off-road performance to new heights. A colossal lift kit is not complete without gargantuan tires and the Tonka 4Runner delivers with 20-inch Ultra Motorsports Type 250 Colossus wheels fitted with Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 38×15.50R20LT off-road tires. The suspension kit is made even more intimidating with custom King 8×2.5-inch and 10×2.5-inch coilovers and additional Bulletproof suspension components.
While these dynamic off-road components are exceptional, the Toyota Tonka 4Runner Concept takes off-road performance even further. Rigid Industries LED lights over each tire will light even the most treacherous trails. Bulletproof designed bumpers, roof rack, side steps and ladders complete a rustic adventurer style that also includes a roof-mounted pop-up tent for off-road enthusiasts who enjoy remote exploration.
If you played with Tonka toys as a kid, the Toyota Tonka 4Runner Concept is like a childhood dream come true. Exploring the official Toyota Tonka 4Runner design and features is exciting and is tantamount to opening a present on Christmas morning. While we can’t get you behind the wheel of the Tonka 4Runner Concept, you can stop in today at White River Toyota and schedule a test drive in a 2016 Toyota 4Runner to get a glimpse at what pure, unadulterated off-road excitement looks and feels like.
