Well it’s April Fools’ Day and with that Toyota has decided to play a prank with the 2020 Yaris Adventure, which it says will debut this month at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.
As its name suggest, the 2020 Toyota Yaris Adventure is for “adventure-seeking” buyers that want something more than what the current Yaris sedan and hatchback offer. Toyota already offers the Tacoma and Tundra pickup trucks, but if buyers are interested in something smaller, there’s the Yaris Adventure, a subcompact pickup.
Toyota jokes that the Yaris Adventure is answers the question that nobody asked, “It’s part truck, part sedan, but 100 percent awesome.”
Inside the Yaris Adventure offers seating for two passengers. It also features a 52.3-inch bed with a payload of 297 lbs. Under the hood the Yaris Adventure is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 103 horsepower and 112 lb-ft of torque.
“Toyota is very excited to debut this product that nobody saw coming,” said a senior executive at Toyota who preferred to remain anonymous. “We’re constantly listening to our customers and reacting to the market. We have to blame the market on this one, as we haven’t had one customer ask for a truck like this.”
