Street Trucks - - WORD ON THE STREET -

TOY­OTA RE­CENTLY IN­TRO­DUCED ITS LAND SPEED CRUISER. Rebel TRX is a 100-mph off-road ma­chine with 575 hp; it’s the most pow­er­ful ½-ton truck the com­pany has ever built. Twin Gar­rett tur­bos under the hood make im­pres­sive power fig­ures to the tune of 2,000-hp. They breathe into a fully built 5.7L Toy­ota V-8, which trans­fers power to the earth via cus­tom ATI trans­mis­sion. This is the “World’s Fastest SUV,” ac­cord­ing to Toy­ota, ca­pa­ble of a blaz­ing 220 mph. Ev­ery sin­gle thing in­side this build has been touched, in­clud­ing the low­ered sus­pen­sion, race tires and aero­dy­namic im­prove­ments that help make the Land Speed Cruiser as slip­pery as pos­si­ble. We can hardly wait to see this thing at Bon­neville.
