COSTNER KEEPS ON TRUCKIN’
Kevin Costner has turned car designer to create his own bespoke Toyota truck.
The actor, 63, has built his ideal vehicle for the outdoors in the custom Tundra Platinum. He was already such a fan of the truck, he was the one to actually reach out to brand officials to offer up his services as a spokesman.
“I was delighted to get a call from Kevin asking if we were interested in collaborating with some video content featuring the Tundra,” said Toyota executive Ed Laukes. “The fact that he identified the Tundra as being the best truck to fit his needs says a lot about our products.”
They then invited Costner to offer his input on customizing his vehicle, adding a tough new front and rear bumpers to handle rugged conditions, and upgrade his exhaust, suspension, wheels and tires.
