The Tundra has been Toyota’s large pickup for the US market since 1999. Not to be confused with the European Toyota Hilux pickup, the Tundra was produced specifically for the US market and to take on the pickups made by the big Detroit companies. Since 2008 the Tundra has been built in the US as well in a manufacturing plant in San Antonio, Texas. Now in its third generation, the Toyota Tundra features a large, powerful grille, improved front and rear fenders, and a redesigned tailgate with an integrated spoiler.
Although the Toyota Tundra used to offer a V6 option, it was dropped in 2015 leaving us with two V8 options. The standard engine is now a 4.6L V8 producing a healthy 310-hp and 327 lb/ft of torque although a larger 5.7L V8 is also available. No matter which engine you choose, a six-speed automatic transmission is standard. We predict a new transmission in the near future however as much of the Tundra’s competition uses 7- and 8-speed transmissions resulting in better fuel economy. Of course like many pickups different sized cab options are available ranging from the standard regular cab to the full-sized Crewmax giving you plenty of room for whoever you might need to carry with you. You also have a choice of three bed lengths to choose from starting with the 5.5-ft short bed to the 8.1-ft long bed option.
With trim levels ranging from the base stripped-out SR to the luxury-filled Limited model, it shouldn’t be hard to find the right one for you. All Tundras come standard with a backup camera with integrated guiding lines as well as a built-in display to show you where you are headed. Of course this system can be upgraded with Toyota’s Entune™ system with hands-free audio, Bluetooth® capabilities, and integrated navigation system. Although the SR model’s interior is fairly basic other trim levels of the Tundra can be fitted with fine stitched leather and easy-to-reach instrumentation.
Although maybe not quite as popular as pickups coming out of Detroit, the Tundra still has the engineering and technology to keep up with whatever you may throw at it. Perhaps with a more updated transmission the Tundra can be better equipped to take on the likes of Ford and GM. The Toyota Tundra competes against the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and Ram 1500.
