Toyota Tundra Spotted in Kerala, India
While the video has been uploaded in the regional language (Malayalam), the visuals are quite vivid and self-explanatory. A large crowd is gathered around a water body that is filled with mud. A ton of off-roading enthusiasts are found either with their SUVs or spectators watching the SUVs perform incredible feats. Firstly, a tractor is seen performing stunts in the muddy water in order to test the depth of the water body. Then the old Mahindra Thar jumps into the thick of the action and starts performing cool manoeuvres in the water.

Finally, an imported Toyota Tundra, red in colour, appears and gets dirty in the water. The number plate suggests that it is an imported product. Thereafter, the pickup truck displays its sheer capabilities with its raised suspension, powerful engine and off-roading prowess. It gets stuck, at times because the slush is too thick in some places. But it manages to get itself out every time. Impressively, the colossal size of the pickup truck becomes apparent only when it is seen alongside the tractor. Finally, after all the adventures, it is time to return to the road. However, due the slippery surface, a Mahindra Thar is used to tow it away.
