Toyota might not build the same model of truck that Marty McFly owned in the "Back to the Future" franchise, so to celebrate the day that Marty and Doc arrive in the future, the automaker created a Tacoma that lives on in the spirit of the old 1985 Toyota Pickup.
In markets outside the United States, the Toyota pickup was called the Toyota Hilux. One is a bit more self-explanatory than the other.
To ensure Toyota's 2016 Tacoma matched McFly's truck as closely as possible, the automaker whipped up a custom exterior paint color that attempts to match the exact shade of black used back in 1985.
This Tacoma's been outfitted with KC HiLites LED lighting, which is just a bit better than the lighting technology in 1985.
Since a fancy stamped tailgate isn't keeping with tradition, Toyota ditched the Tacoma's standard tailgate in favor of a custom unit with a traditional white Toyota logo.
The "BTTF"-inspired truck still retains a good deal of modern equipment, including the Tacoma's standard projection headlights.
Toyota also replaced the Tacoma's new tail lights with custom units that look straight out of the '80s.
Toyota also outfitted this Taco with custom front and rear tubular bumpers.
Toyota will be rolling three copies of this truck around Los Angeles, New York and Dallas for today and today only.
It wouldn't be a car from the 1980s without badges touting fuel injection!
Toyota didn't need to run to another company for the wheels on this Tacoma -- these are Toyota Racing Development (TRD) wheels that you can order at any dealership.
Everything looks better with painted tires.
Toyota also outfitted the Taco with some heavier-duty off-road suspension.
The quote, "Where we're going, we don't need roads" definitely applies in this case, thanks to those beefy shocks.
It's about time for vintage badging to make a comeback, don't you think?
Biff had better make sure to keep this polished-chrome tailpipe nice and shiny.
