2015 toyota 4runner tonka - DOC654194

A Toyota 4Runner has received aftermarket modifications courtesy of Funrise Toy Corporation, manufacturer of Tonka toys.

Currently on display at SEMA, the playful concept is a life-sized re-creation of the famed children’s line of toys. The inspired concept is wrapped in Tonka decals, using colors signature to the company. Helping to ensure that the vehicle performs as menacingly as it looks is a heavily modified suspension that lifts it by 10 inches. Other features include 20-inch Ultra Motorsports Type 250 Colossus wheels, a reinforced undercarriage, a 4.0-liter V6 engine that puts out 270 HP and 278 lb-ft of torque, and Bulletproof Suspensions-built bumpers, side steps and ladders.

Toyota has steadily built a reputation for producing reliable cars at an affordable price and judging by this early preview, its latest entry-level sportscar concept seems to be no exception. Set to premier at the end of the month at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, the S-FR is a lightweight model that provides an agile and responsive drive at a fairly low cost.
Equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, a simple interior outfitted with all the essentials, and a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, there was a rumor that a cheaper alternative to the GT86 was in the works and this new concept could very well be on the market by 2018.
Stay tuned for more updates on the Tokyo Motor Show.
