Million Mile Toyota Tundra

I am sure many of you have seen that Top Gear episode where the trio tried to destroy an old Hilux pickup but that thing just wouldn’t die. Whether you are a Toyota fan or not, you must admit that they are built to last. There is a reason why Toyota vehicles are so loved and desired in the rural areas of Pakistan. The most basic Corolla, the XLi, sells like hotcakes among rural customers. They need a vehicle that can transport people and anything they can fit inside from one place to another, and demands minimal maintenance. And Toyota Corolla does that.

Although Toyota is giving away the new 2016 Tundra to Victor for free, they do however want his old truck in return. Toyota intends to take the old 2007 Tundra apart and see how it managed to hold on for so many miles. Toyota hopes to learn something new and apply they lesson to its new vehicles.

    125,000 miles per year.

    At a maximum highway speed of 70 mph, consider that the truck is not all the time driven at highway speed. Take an average speed of 30 mph including all the signal stops, commute in traffic, etc.

    125,000/30 = 4167 hours of driving in a year = 347 hours of driving in a month = ~12 hours of driving a day.

    Impossible for a single driver, unless it is a cargo truck in which drivers drive in shifts while the other driver sleeps.
