Toyota Tacoma Polar Expedition Back on Auction Block
The one-of-a-kind Toyota Tacoma Polar Expedition is on the market once again. If you are into serious off-roading and/or driving in extreme cold conditions, this original $400k build is exactly what you need.
The 2010 Toyota Tacoma truck is essentially an extremely modified polar expedition vehicle. It was built to make the overland journey to the South Pole which it did in record-setting fashion of 1 day, 15 hours and 54 minutes.
You might have seen the truck on Discovery Channel’s “World’s Toughest Drive” show last year. The show featured three adventures who ventured out for the overland expedition.
A few months ago, we saw this Toyota Tacoma Polar Expedition up for sale on eBay motors by the original owners. It is now being offered by a Lamborghini dealer in Houston, Tx.
The Tacoma is a 4.0L V6 with a TRD supercharger. It has a NATO green vinyl wrap with a graphite interior. Also, in case it really matters, – our guess it doesn’t with something like this – it only has 14,281 miles.
Overall, the Tacoma cost over $400k to build and includes a slew of great modifications and additions such as:
- 330 Gallon Extended Range Fuel Tank
- Metal Replaced w/ Military Grade Steel
- Four OMP WRC XL Racing Seats
- Garmin GPSmap 526 Navigation System
- Garmin Nuvi Turn by Turn Navigation System
- TRD Supercharger
- 9 Ton Superwinch EPi 9.0 Winch
- Dual VIAIR Air Compressors
- Custom Interior Mounted Camera System
- 44″ Mickey Thompson Icepack Tires
- Webasto Engine Heated
- Up Rated Prop Shafts and Rear Differential
- Insulated Cab w/ Roll Cage
With the extended range and large fuel tank (estimated 6,000 mile range) with engine heating, we can certainly see this truck getting extensive use in climates like the Canadian wilderness provides. In that part of the country, the wilds are indeed wild and fuel pumps are few and far inbetween. This truck seems ideally suited to handle whatever cold weather it encounters.
While the features are great, the truck’s history is just truly remarkable. Imagine the bragging rights when you pull up for a trail run in this beast!
