Toyota has just reproduced Marty McFly’s dream truck for Back to the Future Day.
Toyota is doing a lot to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future (the “future” day Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to in Back to the Future Part II), and that includes recreating Marty’s dream truck. Just this time, the truck being divulged at Statler Toyota is a 2016 Tacoma.
The Doc Brown's DeLorean time machine may have stolen the show, but there was another car star in Back to the Future. That would be the 1985 Toyota pickup truck that Marty McFly lusts after and then ends up driving at the end of the movie. With Back to the Future Day festivities going full bore, Toyota couldn't avoid helping everybody remember its part in the establishment. Toyota Tacoma, the newly revamped midsize truck, goes retro to represent the state of automotive fashion in 1985 with a similar look and paint color as the movie vehicle. It also has the same mud flaps and even has backdated headlights and taillights. The word “Toyota” is boldly spelled out on the tailgate, and there are “D-4S” (fuel injection) badges are also attached just like in the ’80s.
The Back to the Future Toyota wasn’t stock, so neither is this one. It possesses a sports off-road suspension and Toyota racing development wheels, plus some delightfully retro off-road accessories. Those include tubular front and rear bumpers, a light bar, and plenty of KC HiLites lighting. Thin LED light bars may be all the rage today, but nothing is better than the look of those KCs it possesses. Back to the future Tacoma has already been displayed in Los Angeles, New York, and Dallas, and long with the customized truck, Toyota also unveiled a back to the future-themed 2016 Mirai at a party for the 1,900 people who signed up to hydrogen fuel-cell car in their garages. Inspired by the DeLorean time machine, it comes complete with gull-wing doors and a head-up display of time-travel destination.
It's a season for revamping! Toyota is 30 years old!
