2020 has turned the world upside down, with virtual workspaces and family camping trips taking the place of in-person meetings and large-scale vacations. So, it’s no surprise the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) has gone digital and Toyota has produced a concept that feeds the need for socially distanced away time.
Say hello to SEMA 360 and the Toyota Overland-Ready Tacoma Concept.
Toyota teamed up with 4WD Toyota Owner Magazine to convert a 2020 Tacoma TRD Pro into an overland rig. The goal of the project: To enhance the Tacoma’s “go anywhere now” personality.
The build includes many aftermarket parts and accessories that can be added to any Tacoma.
The Overland-Ready Tacoma adds a Magnuson Superchargers Roots-type TVS1900 blower. This takes the Tacoma’s stock 3.5-liter V-6 from 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque up to 370 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. This is quite a substantial power upgrade aimed at handling the added weight of the overland gear.
This concept adds many off-road focused parts including:
The Overland-Ready Tacoma also add many popular accessories including:
The Toyota and 4WD Toyota Owner Magazine Overland-Ready Tacoma includes many components of an excellent adventure rig.
However, in our opinion the most exciting part of this build has to be the Magnuson Supercharger. One of the biggest complaints about the Tacoma is lack of power — especially when heavily modified for overland use. The supercharger takes care of all of those concerns. Plus, the 370 horsepower with the supercharger is far more powerful than any stock midsize truck.
While this concept will likely never make it to production, it does show what you can do to your stock Tacoma TRD Pro. In fact, many of these overland aftermarket parts should work on any vehicle that you may already own.
