Having never grown out of their toy car phase, the team at Toyota Australia has collaborated with the Tonka brand to transmogrify the 2016 SR5 HiLux truck into an adult-sized joyride. Outfitted with a 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, heavy-duty suspension and 35-inch tires, the truck also features a snorkel, light bar, and a grin-inducing Tonka-themed paint job. A timely project given the fact that this year is the 70th and 80th anniversaries of Tonka and Toyota respectively, the truck will be making a tour of Australia this June. Check out Tonka’s previous yet no less formidable collaboration with Toyota here.
