Toyota Tacozilla concept at SEMA 2021 - Tacoma Camper | Cars Blog





Downsizing's popularity has created a tiny house craze, and Toyota combines downsizing and outdoor adventure with the Tacozilla Tacoma Camper¹, ​​a 'micro-house' rig ready to go out of the water to entertain. Thank you Toyota campers from the '70s and '80s.


Based on a Tacoma TRD Sport pickup, the Tacozilla is a rad pickup that harks back to Toyota factory campers in the 1970s and 80s, specifically Chinook models. It was built by the Toyota Motorsports Garage team with help from Complete Customs in McKinney, Texas. The centerpiece is the camping top, which is fully customizable and extends below the frame height so everyone can comfortably stand up in the entire interior. To create a passage through the truck's cabin, the team had to add some serious bracing to handle off-road driving. The aluminum camper has rounded edges and a tapered shape, and the cool back door took 100 hours of design time. Toyota's goal is to make campers look fully integrated as part of the Tacoma instead of being a stick-on box,


It was a tough challenge, but they overcame it with great results as the concept featured a familiar front end and a custom-designed rear body. The latter is made of aluminum and has angled surfaces to make navigating the trails easier.



When that door opens, it reveals a surprisingly spacious interior with pop-up windows and teak floors. The model also boasts a fully equipped bathroom with a shower and a kitchen complete with a hob, fridge and sink. Other highlights include a 3D-printed dining table, a bed above the cabin, and a bench to sit back and relax on. Furthermore, the camper is spacious enough to accommodate six footers (1,829 mm) and is connected to the cabin via a small walkway.


To enhance off-road capabilities, the truck has been fitted with a 2-inch (51 mm) lift, a winch and 17-inch wheels wrapped in General Grabber X3. The model also features raised air intakes, a custom TRD exhaust, and a 3.5-liter V6 connected to a six-speed manual transmission.





Complementing the camper's design is an incredible paint job consisting of a white main body with awesome copper, orange and yellow stripes. The Tacozilla also gets 17-inch bronze wheels with off-road tyres, TRD suspension fork lift, integrated winch in the front bumper, snorkel and extra-large light bar. It is powered by a mostly V6 3.5-liter engine and a manual transmission, although Toyota has added a second battery and a custom exhaust system.



Although Toyota has no plans to build and manufacture Tacozilla to sell to common people, I think there could be a huge market for this rig if they do. The off-road craze is still growing rapidly, and Toyota's long history of creating campers based on its compact pickup trucks has earned it some real credibility. Tacozilla will be on display at the Toyota booth during SEMA, starting on November 2.
