Toyota’s Badass Black Minivan Tempt Dads Everywhere
Every dad who’s had to capitulate to the practicalities of a minivan can now dream even bigger. Toyota has created a 4×4 Sienna minivan – dubbed the Ultimate Utility Vehicle (UUV) – that looks like Judge Dredd’s four wheel ride. Based on a Toyota Tacoma chassis, the Sienna’s body is lifted and modified with big fender flares, suicide doors and a new bumper that looks like an accessory pulled off a giant Darth Vader helmet. All of it is bathed in matte black with huge knobby tires shorn on the dark wheels.
It also gets a functioning winch, big utility lights and even tinted headlights to complete a look that’s worthy of a black ops father. Look for this testosteroned Sienna to take on Toyota’s Ever-Better Expedition, a 110-day journey that involves a 16,500 road trip through North America, and then it will head to the SEMA show this coming November. We only wish it would show up in showrooms for all the drooling dads.
