2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Ready For Baja 1000


If Toyota seems a little excited about its largest-ever Specialty Equipment Market Association Show display, it has a good reason. On the truck side of its exhibition booth — the only side we think is important — a newly modified TRD Pro Tundra, which is set to run the 47th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 Stock 4×4 class in November, will be the SEMA display’s centerpiece. The SEMA Show runs Nov. 4-7 in Las Vegas. We had the chance to see the truck at an of development, but it is now race-ready. Toyota held a kick-off and reveal party for the trucks and other vehicles they'll be displaying in Las Vegas last week in Los Angeles where we were able to get these photos. 

Among the notables on the race team are Tundra chief engineer Mike Sweers as one of several co-pilots and race champion Ivan "Ironman" Stewart as the head coach and off-road endurance race expert. Although the race truck is moderately modified (entrants do need a full roll cage and a beefed-up suspension), the truck has completed several punishing desert test runs and should be ready for the brutal top-to-tip challenge.

The race Tundra will be on display at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas for the first week of November before it heads south for the contest. The Tundra will be surrounded by two TRD chase pickup trucks — a Tundra and a Tacoma — and a driver's support TRD 4Runner, all have been specially modified by the impressive folks at N-Fab (remember the  from the 2013 SEMA Show?) and they've done an impressive job.

We'll know and see more when we get to the Las Vegas show and then later find out about the Toyota Team's Baja 1000 race results.
