Toyota's long-running full-size pickup, the Tundra has become adept at delivering exactly what the market wants: rugged style, plenty of grunt and a slew of configurations. Despite its badge, the Tundra is styled and equipped in the tradition of its domestic competitors.
What's New for 2015
The V6 engine has been dropped, and the new TRD Pro model provides enhanced off-road performance.
Choosing your Toyota Tundra
The Tundra received a thorough restyle just last year, so it looks the part of a modern pickup. You have a choice of three cab styles: Regular, Double and CrewMax. Both the Double and CrewMax have four doors and can carry up to six passengers, but the CrewMax offers full-width rear doors and more legroom in back. The Regular Cab comes only with the long bed (8.1 feet), while the Double can get either the short (5.5 feet) or long bed. The CrewMax is available with the short bed only.
The Tundra's 4.6-liter V8 is good for 310 horsepower, and the optional 5.7-liter achieves 381 horsepower. Four-wheel drive is available with either engine, and a six-speed automatic transmission is standard across the board. Towing capacity reaches 10,400 pounds with the larger V8.
As before, the deep model lineup covers a lot of market territory:
The SR is obviously intended for work, whereas the SR5 is for sporty and outdoor types. When it comes to personal or family transportation, the Limited provides the best blend of luxury and value in our view.
