Toyota offers Calgary-area outdoors enthusiasts a Toyota Truck ride-and-drive and a Tacoma pick-up truck contest to celebrate the opening of a new Bass Pro Shops Canada store in Rocky View, Alberta

Event during grand opening week expands on Toyota, Bass Pro relationship established almost five years ago.

(Toronto, ON) – Serious outdoor fun is better in a seriously fun truck, which is why Toyota Canada is helping Bass Pro Shops Canada celebrate the grand opening of its new Calgary-area store with three days of test drives in strong, comfortable and versatile Toyota truck models. What’s more, customers will also have a chance to win a new Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Double Cab pick-up truck with TRD Sports Package, plus a $1,000 Bass Pro shopping spree to help fill the bed with gear for any outdoor adventure.

“Albertans appreciate the value of a great truck, and know that outdoor fun begins with a truck that’s ready for anything – like the Toyota Tacoma. That’s why we’re pleased to help Bass Pro Shops Canada celebrate the grand opening of its first Western Canada location – in Rocky View, Alberta – with a chance to get behind the wheel of a Tacoma, Tundra, Sequoia, or FJ Cruiser on our Toyota Truck Test Track,” said Stephen Beatty, Managing Director of Toyota Canada Inc. “What’s more, we’re pleased to give Bass Pro Shops customers in the Calgary-area a chance to win a new Tacoma and $1,000 Bass Pro shopping spree.”

The Toyota Tacoma draws on Toyota’s 70 years of building trucks for use in the most demanding environments around the world – from the High Arctic to the desert. The result is a compact pick-up truck that’s big on power, performance and utility that also boasts surprising comfort, style, and fuel-efficiency – making it the perfect partner for work or play. Whether it’s the efficiency and driveability of a four-cylinder 4x2 Access Cab, the rugged capability and utility of a V6-equipped 4x4 Double Cab, or something in-between, there’s a Toyota Tacoma for everyone. Loaded with standard features, the Toyota Tacoma may also be customized from a range of options packages and equipment.

Visit the Tacoma page at to find out why it’s called the tough, powerful and versatile pick-up that’s built to last. Customers can visit Bass Pro Shops Canada stores in Vaughan, Ontario or Rocky View, Alberta to enter for a chance to win a new Tacoma plus a $1,000 Bass Pro shopping spree. Contest closes December 31, 2009
