Toyota Planning “Back to the Future” Tribute TacomaPosted in Vehicle Reviews on October 15, 2015
Marty McFly’s dream truck in the 1985 classic film Back to the Future was a gorgeous, all-black Toyota Pickup 4x4. It was the truck that first set the hearts of many a truck guy on fire, and it’s impossible to discuss awesome 1980s pickups without acknowledging the ride that got McFly and his girl to the lake for their camping trip (or at least would have, if Doc Brown hadn’t interrupted them to enlist their help in fixing the future).
In recognition of the day that Marty McFly arrived in the future (October 21, 2015, if you haven’t seen the movie), Toyota will give BTTF and Tacoma fans a treat in the way of a brand-new tribute truck. Dreams of a slightly lifted black-on-black-on-black 2016 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 4x4 will be tormenting us until we get to see the truck on the day of the anniversary.
Toyota is bringing two of the movie’s characters back together again as well, Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd. Marty and the Doc appear in a new YouTube video wherein they discuss what predictions the movie made and how accurate those predictions were. In tomorrow’s video, we’ll get a clue as to where Toyota will show off its new BTTF tribute truck.
