The Tundra is one of the smoothest, quietest, and most refined pickups we’ve driven. Its 4.7-liter V8 engine is exceptional, with enough power to run with the big dogs. A properly equipped Tundra can tow up to 7,100 pounds or haul up to 1,800 pounds.
This Tundra comes with extended Access Cab with auxiliary rear doors and full-width bed.
SR5 models come standard with air conditioning, cruise control, AM/FM/cassette stereo, tilt steering, tachometer, color-keyed front and chromed rear bumper, styled steel wheels, and other trim upgrades.
Access Cab models have four doors. The short rear doors are hinged at the rear and open opposite the front doors. As with other extended cabs, the doors on the Access Cab will bang into one another if you close the front door before closing the rear door. Fortunately, the inside of the rear door is padded, so this isn’t a big problem. Handles for the rear doors are conveniently located on the outside, whereas most domestic pickups with extended cabs hide the handles inside the door jams.
Ride quality is excellent. On rough pavement and bumpy dirt roads, the Tundra’s suspension really shines. It damps out unwanted vibration and harshness and controls the movement of the wheels precisely, keeping the tires in contact with the road surface for excellent grip and handling.
Toyota comes with the TRD Off-Road Package, developed with Toyota off-road-racing legend Ivan ‘Ironman’ Stewart. Using Bilstein shocks and special progressive-rate springs, this suspension is designed for performance in extreme off-road conditions; and it reportedly rides better on rough road surfaces than the standard suspension.
The Toyota Tundra may not boast the bragging rights found on the other full-size pickups, but it’s smooth and quiet, light on its feet, and easy and enjoyable to drive. It offers lots of power for passing or towing. All of this, wrapped up with Toyota’s renowned quality, durability and reliability, make the Tundra a good choice among full-size pickup trucks.
Truck comes with Tonneau cover bed liner, a 2 years state inspection, and standard warranty.
