The Swagger Wagon has actually just received a significant and also somewhat natural facelift, featuring the apparent mug of SpongeBob Squarepants. This one-off piece of absurdity is, in fact, a 2015 Toyota Sienna, personalized to the hilt by Toyota as well as Nickelodeon to ensure the upcoming SpongeBob Film: Sponge Out of Water.
The Sienna SpongeBob Squarepants Edition will make its public launching at the 2014 L.a Automobile Show. As certain as the sun is hot, this development will likely decrease as one of the much more prominent tourist attractions in Los Angeles.
Once the SpongeBob Sienna obtains its fill of the spotlight in L.a, the van will indeed embark on a cross-country excursion to advertise the brand-new SpongeBob motion picture before the it opens in theaters on February 6, 2015.
Serious-minded individuals are likely to belittle the Toyota Sienna SpongeBob and disregard it as nothing more than a novelty masterpiece. Just how simple these people fail to remember that this is, in fact, the 2nd SpongeBob-themed production Toyota has constructed in as years. Bear in mind the 2014 Toyota Highlander Spongebob Squarepants Edition that made its debut at the 2013 SEMA Car Program?
On a far less obvious level, it’s a wizard advertising ploy to connect SpongeBob Squarepants to a minivan Toyota desires moms and dads throughout the United States to acquire. What far better means to do accentuate that compared to by dressing up a Sienna making use of a cartoon character that kids of this generation are all-too accustomed to. We see exactly what you’re doing there
Toyota Sienna SpongeBob Exterior
Toyota vouchers that there’s a Sienna somewhere under the completely customized Spongebob outside. Even if you do distinguish the automobile from its design, it’s upsetting your eyes off of SpongeBob’s face. It actually inhabits every square inch of the Sienna’s windshield or even prolongs to the hood where his mouth is, completing the look that has made extend to millions of children– as well as grownups– around the world.
The whole body of the Sienna was likewise given a two-tone, yellow-and-blue coating illustrating Spongebob’s skin shade and the dominant color of his undersea address. There’s likewise a giant bubble blower remaining on the roof of the van, described as a “Superhero Incredibubble” that was included with the particular objective of blowing actual bubbles.
Toyota Sienna SpongeBob Interior
You believed the exterior was wild? Wait till you tip inside the cabin of this Sienna. The oddities begin with the custom-made blue Leader’s ship wheel that has actually filled in the Sienna’s conventional steering wheel. I’m negative regarding this, yet I do not believe that blue ship wheel has airbags within it.
A majority of the log cabin, consisting of the dashboard, door panels, and also pillars were alleviated to the very same sea blue-colored trim as the roof covering. The headliner is finished in a different blue-sky shade of blue while the floor was created to appear like sand. The motivation behind those two designs is rather obvious.
Some yellow trims were additionally included throughout the log cabin, along with customized seats inspired by the different colors of SpongeBob’s posse at Swimwear Bottom. I guess Spongebob and Patrick Star are the two front seats while Squidward Tentacles and Mr. Krab stand for the second-row leaders chairs. The 3rd-row seats are a little harder making out, but that could be Sandy Cheeks, Spongebob’s squirrel/astronaut pal from Texas.
Toyota Sienna SpongeBob Engine
The 2016 Toyota Sienna is powered by a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine that excels in creating 266 horse power as well as 245 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent out to the front wheels thanks to a six-speed transmission.
The combination of the V-6 and the transmission enables the Sienna to deliver 18 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the freeway, and 21 mpg integrated.
Since the Sienna’s powertrain has been developed, exactly how do you even drive this point to start with? I get that the Leader’s ship wheel can be taken out and replaced with a typical steering wheel, yet is it feasible to keep an eye out of the windscreen and see anything with Spongebob’s face blocking the view?
My guess is that the face can be taken off of the windscreen when the Sienna has to hit the road. That’s the only plausible description I could think about.
Toyota Sienna SpongeBob Conclusion
It’s finest not take the Sienna SpongeBob Edition seriously as well as consider it the means it’s supposed to be looked at. It’s a kid-friendly advertising minivan that was offered the full SpongeBob Squarepants therapy, right down to the captain’s ship wheel and also the bubble blower on the roof covering.
