The Toyota Tundra TrailHunter Has 1 Ultimate Advantage
Are you ready for the Toyota Tundra to roll out straight from the factory ready to tackle the wild? It will be the best standard option for overlanding, with everything you need already included. Check out what comes with the 2023 Toyota Tundra Trailhunter.
What comes with the 2023 Toyota Tundra Trailhunter?
The 2023 Toyota Tundra Trailhunter comes straight from the factory with everything you need for overlanding. You can easily go off-roading and camping in this beast without having to take the time to add custom upgrades.
It features third-party parts from Associated Accessory Products. It will probably have a few optional upgrades too. According to Car and Driver, this truck is based on the Trailhunter Concept that was introduced at the 2022 SEMA show.
This rig features a unique suspension setup that may account for the extra weight of the rooftop tent and other accessories. Plus, it looks a little taller. It could include the newly available factory-installed lift kit that adds 2.6 inches of ground clearance.
This would raise the height to over 10.5 inches. If that’s not tall enough for every obstacle, don’t worry. Extra skid plates protect the undercarriage.
It also wears unique bumpers, a roof rack, a rooftop tent, additional lighting, and extra storage. Rumors suggest that a refrigerator and other camping equipment will be available.
How much power does the Tundra Trailhunter have?
The 2023 Toyota Tundra Trailhunter might come with the standard 3.4-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that cranks out 389 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. Opting for this engine could help keep pricing down.
However, it could come with the upgraded i-FORCE MAX hybrid powertrain that churns out 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain gets an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and up to 24 mpg on the highway.
When properly equipped, the Tundra can tow up to 12,000 lbs and carry a payload of up to 1,940 lbs. The TrailHunter could have suspension tuning to make it stronger, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it tows a bit less.
Lisa Matterazzo, Toyota Marketing Vice President, shared that Trailhunter trucks will come straight from the factory equipped to meet the needs of overlanding enthusiasts. The trucks will be developed in-house by Toyota engineering teams.
Toyota promises that the Trailhunter will have the most capable OME overlanding solutions that are designed to meet Toyota’s legendary quality, durability, and reliability standards.
How much will the Tundra Tailhunter cost?
The 2023 Toyota Tundra Trailhunter price could be pretty steep. We wouldn’t be surprised if this new flagship model slots above the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, which starts at about $68,520. A truck that doubles as a tiny home probably won’t be cheap!
But we will get a better idea about pricing soon once Toyota releases the Tundra Trailerhunter specs and standard equipment. More information should be available soon if it’s added to the 2023 lineup.
Also, the Tundra Trailhunter might not be the only new overlanding model! There could be a Toyota 4Runner Trailhunter, Tacoma Trailhunter, and Sequoia Trailhunter. Stay tuned for the latest Toyota news.
