Nick Cannon’s Toyota Tundra is one of the sickest pickup trucks you’ll ever see. Nicholas Scott Cannon is an entertainment mogul that has been active since the late 90s. From acting to music to hosting major television shows like America’s Got Talent, Nick has done it all. So you know he’s got enough dough for his very own custom Toyota Tundra by West Coast Customs.

Nick Cannon’s West Coast Customs Toyota Tundra is apocalypse-ready

West Coast Customs has made a name for itself creating awesome custom vehicles for celebrities. In the spring of 2020, famous entertainer Nick Cannon brought his 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro to Ryan and the gang. His main request was that the truck be apocalypse-ready when finished. It’s safe to say Ryan exceeded expectations.

Nick Cannon wanted his 2020 Toyota Tundra to be a mini monster truck. Ryan and the West Coast Customs crew took the four-door TRD Pro and made it look ready for a scene from Mad Max. The truck was fitted with a 12-inch lift kit. It got a custom grille from Dodge that was modified to fit the Tundra.

The custom 2020 Toyota Tundra was equipped with huge off-road tires and wheels. The Japanese full-size pickup truck hasn’t gotten a redesign in over a decade, so this custom was well-needed. West Coast Customs proved that the Tundra can look just as awesome as some of its pricier competitors with the right tweaks.

The 2020 Toyota Tundra comes with a great V8 engine. It’s reliable and has many infotainment and driver assistance features. The 2020 model introduced the standard V8, so you don’t have to pay extra for a decent Tundra engine. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also became standard on this model year.

The 2020 Toyota Tundra is a good truck, but even die-hard fans can admit that it would benefit from a redesign. After almost 13 years, the design looks understandably outdated. When compared with the designs of other models in its vehicle class, the Tundra doesn’t even come close.

The 2021 model didn’t change much. The fuel economy still isn’t good, getting only 13 miles per gallon in the city and 17 miles per gallon on the highway. It still seems outdated compared to other full-size trucks. It does offer some trail-ready options, but the Tundra doesn’t fit in with the futuristic new trucks of today.

How long do Toyota Tundras last?

Like most models from the Japanese automaker, this pickup is built to last. Toyota Tundras can last for over 200,000 miles. The average driver travels about 13,500 miles a year. This works out to about 15 years of ownership before the Tundra is ready for the scrapyard. The real question is, are you willing to stick with the same Tundra for 14+ years?

The Toyota Tundra is a reasonably priced full-size truck. It starts at $34,025. If you want a long-lasting truck, the Tundra is the way to go. The folks at West Coast Customs proved that it could be an awesome truck with the right mods when they redesigned one for Nick Cannon.
