• The Trailhunter concept unveiled today at The 2022 SEMA Show a preview of the new ground version of the factory production Toyota Tundra.
  • The Trailhunter concept has third-party add-ons available through Toyotas recently announced companion accessories.
  • Along with new third-party accessories, the Trailhunter package will also be offered on other Toyota models — presumably the 4Runner, Tacoma and Sequoia.

For now Ford and Taran Concerned about naming their high-performance pickup trucks after prehistoric monsters, Toyota is going to name the Tundra model after . . . something that hunts on the trails? To be fair, the Toyota Tundra Trailhunter concept unveiled today at SEMA 2022 isn’t meant to be an off-road beast; instead, it previews a new overland version of factory production. However, we think the Trailslayer or Trailthrasher would sound cooler.

Car and driver

Toyota says the Trailhunter concept features a unique suspension setup. Based on the photos, the concept looks taller than most Tundra models. We’d bet that its increased ground clearance is due recently available dealer installed lift kit at factory, giving the half-ton truck an additional 2.6 inches of ground clearance. If it’s not enough to overcome all obstacles, the lower part of the Trailhunter concept is additionally protected by skid plates.

Souvenirs of third parties

What really sets the Trailhunter apart from other Tundra models is its range of third-party accessories. The concept’s embellishments include amber front fog lights, strong front and rear bumpers, a low-profile roof rack and a bed-mounted awning. An ARB refrigerator is also installed in the cargo box, which is ideal for cooling refreshments after a long day of hunting trails.

A recently announced program that also extends to Lexus models, is designed to give customers more customization options in a more streamlined way. Some notable third-party vendors mentioned include ARB, Yakima, and Rigid Industries.

Trailhunter(s) soon

While Toyota hasn’t said when the Trailhunter trim level will join the Tundra lineup, we’re told it’s coming soon. This leads us to think that it will likely be offered as part of the 2023 model year, but we’ll have to wait until the company releases more details next year.

We’ll also have to wait to find out which other Toyota models will get the Trailhunter treatment. For what it’s worth, the 4 Runner, Tacomaand Sequoia it seems like a simple matter to add factory built ground models. Stay tuned for updates.
