Designers at Toyota Motorsports Group are always tinkering and looking for new possibilities, and this truck is the result of one of their visions.

The Tundra Dually was introduced at SEMA in 2007 and shows what could happen if Toyota decided to outfit a truck with a diesel engine and driveline from a Hino commercial truck.

About the Tundra Diesel Dually

  • CrewMax Tundra with a 6.5-foot bed on a lengthened frame
  • 8.0L diesel from a 35,000 pound Hino work truck
  • Eaton 5-speed manual transmission
  • Hino rear differential

Toyota Motorsports also modified the truck's bed, adding large external fenders to accommodate the dual rear wheels. A Reese fifth-wheel hitch adds to the Tundra's heavy duty capabilities.

The truck looks rugged from the outside, but step inside and you'll find the Tundra's built for comfort. Ginger colored leather captain's chairs are installed in front and back, and the back seats are outfitted with individual DVD systems. Navigation gets you where you want to go, and a Kenwood sound system keeps you awake on long drives.

Ginger leather is repeated on the shift knob and wrapped steering wheel. A taupe Ultrasuede headliner hovers above passengers.

The Tundra is painted with a matte charcoal metallic paint and has brushed nickel trim. A massive Magnaflow exhaust system carries diesel fumes away from the engine. PIAA lights are mounted on top of the cab and LED clearance lights are installed on the truck's front and rear.

Alcoa forged the Tundra's 22.5" custom alloy wheels, and the truck rides on Michelin Energy 295/60/22.5 tires. The truck's power retractable side steps are visible under the doors.
