After driving a Toyota Tundra for 1 million miles, complete with the original engine and transmission, the only sensible thing to do is buy another one! In this case, however, Tundra-fanatic Victor Sheppard didn't have to.
After hearing about Sheppard's story and his incredible, long-lasting pickup, Toyota decided to trade him a brand new 2016 model for free. It would be Sheppard's 16th Tundra.
"These trucks are safe and dependable," Sheppard boasts. "I think, if you see a Toyota on the side of the road, it might be a scam because they just don’t break down very often."
As for Toyota, the automaker is happy to have this special vehicle back in its possession. Chief truck engineer Mike Sweers explains, "Having a million-mile truck in as pristine condition as this one with original parts is a truly rare find. Our team plans to tear down the entire truck, bumper-to-bumper, top-to-bottom to evaluate how the quality and safety we designed, engineered and built into the Tundra has held up to over one-million miles of real-world driving and help us continue providing ever-better vehicles for our customers."
