Tacoma Back to the Future Concept is truck we fell in love with

Kamil Kaluski October 21, 2015 All Things Hoon 11 Comments

I can’t be the only one. It was the first time I was watching Back to the Future and it was love at first sight. No, not Lea Thompson, but the black Toyota pickup. It was so perfect – black, with black wheel, mud tires, KC lights with their iconic covers, tube rollbar. So simple, so perfect. Not to be the one to miss an opportunity to promote their all new-ish for 2015 Tacoma, Toyota built one up to look like the modern version of the truck from the movie.

It’s a much bigger truck now, and the proportions seem to be a bit off, but damn if it isn’t just great. The sad part is that it is just a concept car. The good part is that, technically, there is very little standing in the way of you building one like it.

Toyota even listed exactly what’s been done to it, and many of these parts can be easily purchased:


  • Custom 1985 Toyota Truck Exterior Paint
  • Off-road Suspension
  • Toyota Racing Development (TRD) Wheels
  • BFGoodrich Tires
  • Custom front and rear Tubular Bumpers
  • Custom Light Bar
  • KC HiLites Gravity LED G46
  • KC HiLites Daylighter Gravity LED
  • Custom “D-4S” Fuel Injection Badging
  • Custom Tailgate with Iconic “TOYOTA” Logo
  • Custom Vintage Headlight and Taillight Design
  • Mud Flaps 1985 Toyota Truck

Personally I would up the tires by one size and add some wheel spacers (that worked great on my 4Runner). Aftermarket suspension kits are dime-a-dozen but does anyone still sell rollbars and tube bumpers? I think you can get them for Jeeps, but that’s about it. But it is possible to make the McFly dream truck for yourself quite easily, is my point here. Enjoy the rest of the pics. I may be driving the new Tacoma off-road soon, stay tuned.

    No, this is the 80s truck that I wanted.
    I never liked the Toyota trucks, too small.

      To say nothing of Heather Thomas.

      Nice! This was a favorite of mine back then.

  • Sorry, no single cab means no Tingly Sensations™.

    I feel a certain attraction to this vehicle, almost an affectionate force, a Power of Love, perhaps.

    My only quibble is no word on the awesome graph paper gauges. For that matter, it’s probably an automatic even if they offer the stick (although at least the V6 would allow for the TRD supercharger).

    Still a fan.

    Make it a single cab, and a manual.

    That said, if I had the cash, I’d buy it.

    BTTF was my buddy Nigel’s favorite movie. He pined over the Toyota but only had a very tippy Bronco II which he added KCs.

  • I don’t usually look at new trucks multiple times over the course of one day.
    Today was not like other days.
    I’ve looked at this more times than I can count.
    Oh bank account, why are you not filled with the real-life equivalent of Credits?

    I guess Toyota gets that they just need to offer this one now? They could use some cool cred. Oh, and 1985 prices with 2015 dollars would be a neat trick, too.
