TOYOTA TUNDRA S/C DEMOS PROTOTYPE TRD SUPERCHARGER
By: Michael Levine

Toyota is getting serious about sport trucks. After recently introducing the Tacoma S-Runner compact truck, Toyota Racing Development (TRD) brought this prototype supercharged Tundra to SEMA. The supercharger is expected as a dealer installed option in the first quarter of 2001 and increases horsepower and torque in the base I-Force V8 from 245 horsepower and 315 ft-lbs. to 340 horsepower and 457 ft-lbs.

The carbon fiber and leather interior will also be available as an option on the Tundra early next year.
