Hey check out that new four-by-four!
In lieu of Back to the Future day, the at-the-time futuristic day when Marty McFly and Doc Emmett Brown arrived from October 26, 1985 to the current date, Toyota fully revealed their latest reimagination of Marty McFly’s Toyota Hilux in the form of the latest 2016 Tacoma.
Revealed in Toyota’s latest themed promo for the Toyota Mirai FCV, this new 2016 Tacoma is similarly designed after Marty’s dream truck from the original movies.
It features a custom black exterior paint job replicating the original from the 1985 Toyota Truck, a lifted off-road suspension, TRD wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich all-terrains, custom front and rear bumpers and brush guards, a bed-mounted roll cage with a complementing light bar and more.
Toyota made several examples, which could be seen in person across the country today in Los Angeles, New York, and Dallas. Although Toyota didn’t say whether or not it’ll actually be made, all we can say is–DO IT.
Check out the press release after the jump.
