Greg LeBlanc Toyota Celebrates Million-Mile Toyota Tundra

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana Greg LeBlanc Toyota hosted a special ceremony on Wednesday for a Toyota customer with a million-mile Toyota Tundra pickup truck.

Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. swapped the million-mile 2007 Tundra for a 2016 Tundra.

Victor Sheppard, the truck's sole owner, logged 117 dealership service visits in his quest to keep his Tundra running like new. The truck has been regularly featured on LeBlanc Toyota's Facebook page in the run-up to the million-mark milestone.

"Most people can't believe how much on his truck is original," said Ron Weimer, general manager of Greg LeBlanc Toyota, in a statement. "Victor has been loyal to his maintenance and kept it up."

Toyota engineers will tear down Sheppard's original Tundra to evaluate how it's held up during more than a million miles of real-world driving.

"With the knowledge gained, the engineers will apply their findings to future trucks," Toyota said.

The Tundra competes against the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, Nissan Titan and Ram 1500.

Edmunds says: Something for truck shoppers to consider as they look under the hood of the Tundra and its rivals.
