Ever-Better Expedition Vehicles Make an Appearance at SEMA Las Vegas for Toyota
The Toyota Ultimate Utility Vehicle (UUV) was first introduced publicly in June 2015 as part of the launch of the North American leg of Toyota’s Ever-Better Expedition, a driving project that spans five continents. During the 110-day leg, nine vehicles are being driven over 16,500 miles by Toyota engineers through North America’s most extreme driving conditions—from the desert heat of Death Valley to the icy winter roads of Alaska, and from the congested streets of Manhattan to the soaring heights of Pikes Peak. This Sienna “Swagger Wagon” is retrofitted onto a tough Tacoma pickup chassis and equipped with a Toyota Racing Development (TRD) supercharger, 22×12-inch Monster Energy off-road wheels and upgraded Heim steering and it can be seen at SEMA.
Also making a stop on its global trek at SEMA will be the Toyota LC 200, Australia’s version of the Land Cruiser and the global torch bearer of the Ever-Better Expedition.
