Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Drives Up A Volcano: Video
Motorsport legends and all-round thrill seekers Ryan Millen and Andy Bell decided it would be fun to drive a Toyota Tundra TRD Pro up the side of several volcanoes in uncharted Chilean wilderness. Yep, volcanoes – in a truck. Then again, it’s the same truck (and the same guys) that tackled the Baja 1000 in mostly stock form.
The Toyota-sourced video shows the pair absolutely abusing the Tundra TRD Pro over treacherous terrain filled with jagged rocks, huge crevices, boiling springs, and lava flows. The truck seems to handle the punishment with ease, never breaking or even having so much as a flat tire – at least on camera.
Though it’s a sensationalized video with daredevil stunts no normal person would try, it does show that modern trucks are beastly machines, especially ones upfitted to handle such off-road terrain.
The Tundra TRD Pro is accompanied by the Tacoma and 4Runner TRD Pro in Toyota’s three-member heavy-hitters’ club. All three are fitted with heavy-duty shocks, upgraded skidplates, meaty tires, stronger wheels, and extra ground clearance. In the Tundra’s case, it also comes with a full performance exhaust system that spews beautiful noises from the 5.7-liter V-8 under the hood.
Make sure to watch the video in hi-def and on full screen. The vistas these guys see are simply incredible.
