Rise of the New Machine from Toyota - T3 Tundra

Torrance, CA - When moviegoers across the country flock to theaters for today's release of "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," two of the machines they'll see in dramatic action are the Toyota Tundra pickup truck and the Lexus SC 430 hardtop convertible.

In a deal with Warner Bros. pictures, Toyota and Lexus supplied the vehicles for the top characters to pilot during dramatic chase scenes.

Behind the wheel of the Toyota Tundra is Arnold Schwarzenegger (the "Terminator"), Claire Danes ("Kate Brewster") and Nick Stahl ("John Connor") in the movie's most exciting chase scene that demonstrates the Tundra's durability and reliability.

The Lexus SC 430 is put into action early in the movie when audiences are introduced to Kristanna Loken, who plays the villainous Terminatrix.

"Terminator 3 is the quintessential action movie and the Toyota Tundra fits perfectly because it's tough, durable and unstoppable, which is what's needed in the wild chase scenes," said Deborah Wahl Meyer, Toyota corporate marketing communications manager. "We're also capturing that image and bringing it to our dealer showrooms with a special-edition Terminator 3 (T3) model."

The Tundra T3 models are available in dealerships now and feature unique interior and exterior-enhancements such as a full-color-keyed appearance package including a custom grille, T3 badging and graphics, fog lamps and 17-inch magnesium-toned alloy wheels. The interior features distinctive Dark Charcoal perforated leather seats, and metallic-appearance interior trim on the dash.

Performance enhancements in the T3 Special Edition include a sport suspension with Tokico shocks, a limited slip differential, heavy-duty stabilizer bar and a Toyota Racing Development (TRD) dual exit exhaust.

The Tundra T3 Special Edition package is offered on Tundra SR5 Access Cab 4X2 models in two exterior colors, Black and Imperial Jade Mica. The T3 Special Edition package, which has a limited production of approximately 850 and includes the SR5-grade Value package and color-keyed overfenders, carries a price of $5,585. The base price for the SR5 Access Cab is $23,445.
