The Toyota Tundra: Full-Size and Capable
There are many choices when it comes to full-size pickup trucks, but the Toyota Tundra manages to easily stand out from the crowd. The Tundra excels on and off the road, with the TRD Pro offering the perfect solution for those who plan to spend a lot of time off the beaten path. Off-roading features, like specially tuned Bilstein shocks and a heavy-duty skid plate, help the TRD Pro make a name for itself, but other trims can also handle off-roading thanks to features like the Automatic Limited-Slip Differential and Active Traction Control. The Tundra is also ready for towing and hauling with a truck bed that lets you secure your items with ease. Impressively enough, the Toyota Tundra can be a work truck or a family vehicle, with a spacious cabin, a large center console, and versatile seating. Come into Thomasville Toyota today to see if the Toyota Tundra will be a good fit for you and your family.
The Updates You’ll Find on the 2017 Toyota Tundra
The 2017 Toyota Tundra is more or less familiar to those who have been behind the wheel of the 2016 model. Toyota updated the latest version of this powerhouse slightly, enhancing the list of features that come standard with a modest increase in price. If you choose a Toyota Tundra with the base 4.6-liter V8 engine, you will now have a trailer tow hitch receiver as standard, something that was previously only an option. Additionally, those who opt for the Tundra Limited trim level will now have power front bucket seats as standard for added comfort. Other than these adjustments, the 2016 and 2017 Toyota Tundra models are nearly identical, with the same engines, truck bed lengths, cabins, drivetrains, and more.
How the Toyota Tundra Has Evolved Over the Years
The Toyota Tundra was first introduced in 1999 as the automaker’s first full-size pickup truck. Over the years, it has gotten larger, more powerful, and gained additional features. The original Tundra had a few features in common with the existing Tacoma and T100s but with enough to set it apart. The first Tundra had the choice of a 3.4-liter V6 or a 4.7-liter V8, and there were superchargers available. A refresh for 2002 gave this pickup a new grille and added a Stepside Cabin to make it more competitive.
For 2005, the Tundra got enhancements to the available power. This model year now offered a 4-liter V6 with 236 horsepower and 266 pound-feet as the base powertrain. The 4.7-liter V8 was also updated to include Toyota’s Variable Valve Timing, enhancing efficiency as well as performance. This year also brought the choice of a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual.
The Toyota Tundra entered its second generation for the 2007 model year, growing in size and offering significantly larger capacities for both payload and towing. There was also a new 5.7-liter V8 engine. By this second-generation model, there were already a whopping 31 configurations available when everything was considered. This generation was very appealing to those in search of a work truck thanks to head restraints you could use with a hard hat on, a tow hitch, and a deck rail system. For 2008, the Tundra began production in the United States and had 44 available configurations. E85 fuel compatibility was added in 2009. There was a refresh for 2010 with a new grille and taillights, a new 4.6-liter V8, the addition of the Platinum trim, and knee airbags. The 2013 Tundra followed with a major redesign, bringing it closer to the model you will find today.
