2014's challenge was to tackle the theme of 'Tow Tractors: Industrial Machine in Need of a Makeover'. In a fast moving world, tow tractors control the flow of essential goods and transportation. Design students were challenged to present an original idea revitalizing a tow tractor intended for use at airports, production facilities, and railways. The winning product reflected the Toyota Heritage’s core product values: Safety, Durability, Productivity, Driveability, and Simplicity.
