“In the Gulf States pick-up trucks and being outdoors are a natural way of life, and that’s why we’ve developed the 2015 Toyota Tundra Bass Pro Shops Off-Road Edition,” said Marty Collins, president and general manager of Gulf States Toyota. “This vehicle not only has all the capability to take you where you want to go, but you’ll look good doing it.”

The special edition Tundra will be exclusively available for purchase at Toyota dealerships in the Gulf States Region (Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas) in October 2014. The 2015 Toyota Tundra Bass Pro Shops Off-Road Edition has a manufacturer’s suggested price starting at $43,975.

With the purchase or lease of a 2015 Toyota Tundra Bass Pro Shops Off-Road Edition, customers will receive their choice of a special fishing, hunting, camping or marine outdoor gear lifestyle package from Bass Pro Shops, valued at approximately $1,000.
