The reinforced chassis of the vehicle has been upgraded to support the payload with a custom rear axle, custom tuned shock absorbers, and a boxed and gusseted frame. The Tacoma truck is also outfitted with re-geared differentials to increase low-end torque, and with four-wheel braking.
As for power and fuel, the BCT’s solar panels and the truck’s alternator feed the lithium battery bank providing 500 amp-hours of usable power.
The BCT will be available on a made-to-order basis, with an introductory base price of $285,000. Truckhouse plans to start limited production in February 2021.
