Overland Classifieds :: 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Offroad with Bison Overland Camper

We’ve shared a few Tacomas recently, but arguably none as overland prepared as today’s example. This stunning rig, featured at Overland Expo Mountain West, was built by specialists Bison Overland Campers as a prototype ahead of their transition to composite construction in 2022.

From the Seller:

“Being this is a prototype and a used truck, I recommend if you are a serious buyer to have a third party inspect the truck, or fly in and have a look before any deal is made. We want to make sure you fully understand the rig and there are no unmet expectations.”

2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Offroad

Considered by many as the toughest truck in its class, the 2017 Tacoma is a dependable workhorse that’s become extremely popular for both commercial and recreational purposes. The truck showcases a robust 3.5-liter V6 (producing 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque), mated with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. The Tacoma is available as a short or long bed, with double or access cab options, and benefits from a 1,295-pound payload and a 3,500-pound maximum towing capacity. The multi-terrain select system, taken from the 4Runner, enhances 4WD performance with modes for mud, sand, slick rock, and more, while low-range and a locking rear differential complete the all-terrain package. The Tacoma may not be as refined as some of its competitors, but it makes up for this with class-leading reliability, build quality, and offroad performance.
