SEMA: Toyota‘s ‘Tundrasine’ pickup, Sienna R-Tuned Concept

Toyota has revealed a wide range of unique vehicles for SEMA, ranging from a stretched Tundra limousine to a Camaro-stomping Sienna minivan.

The ‘Tundrasine’ is based on a 1794 Edition 4×4 CrewMax package with a 5.7-liter V8. Toyota then chopped and stretched the chassis, stretching to an overall length of more than 26 feet with a 236-inch wheelbase.

The exterior is painted in Midnight Black Metallic, while the interior is clad in brown leather — inspired by passenger compartments of luxury private jets. Unlike a Gulfstream, however, occupants can choose from eight doors to enter the vehicle.

“People have seen plenty of limousines before, but never one quite like the Tundrasine,” says Toyota marketing manager Steve Appelbaum.

At the other end of the spectrum, engineers at the Toyota Technical Center collaborated with performance specialists at DG-Spec to build a track-focused Sienna. The “Swagger Wagon” was outfitted with new brakes, wheels, tires, shocks, seats and a limited-slip differential, among other upgrades.

The company claims the Sienna R-Tuned, with its stock 3.5-liter V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, is capable of beating a 6.2-liter V8 Camaro SS on the test track. In fact, the minivan lapped Willow Springs a full second faster than the 426-horsepower coupe.

“We looked at the overall dynamics of the vehicle, and made adjustments to make the vehicle handle and brake better,” said Sienna chief engineer Andrew Lund. “The Sienna R-Tuned simply carries more speed through the corners.”

Both vehicles will be on display at Toyota’s SEMA booth at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
