Toyota’s trucks are going on the hunt.
The automaker has announced the launch of a new line of Trailhunter trucks that have been designed for overlanding adventures.
The new trim will be offered on several models, which will be upgraded with new parts and accessories to make them more suitable for long-duration off-road trips.
The activity has become increasingly popular in recent years, with many custom truck outfits offering modifications on a variety of models.

The brand showcased what to expect at the recent SEMA Auto Show with a Tundra Trailhunter concept.
Full technical information has not been released, but the pickup had an increased ride height, metal bumpers, rock rails and improved underbody protection.
It was also equipped with unique suspension system that featured the Trailhunter’s compass logo, which is also found in several other locations on the vehicle.
