The Truth About The Toyota Tundra
With all of this talk of aluminum pickups and SAE towing ratings, the Toyota Tundra is one truck that offers something everyone else does not – everything!
Is there proof that the Tundra is better than its rivals?
Consider this: The Tundra offers a lineup of engines that provide pure torque for maximum towing capacity and pull. Choose a 4×2 Regular Cab with the Long Bed and the iForce 5.7liter V8, the maximum towing capacity reaches 10,500 pounds. Most Tundras have maximum towing capacities of five tons or more. Our rivals have reported problems with so-called efficient and “eco” engines that could not fulfill their maximum towing capacities without some failure.
Then again, a Tundra CrewMax pulled a Space Shuttle once. That is real towing power!
If you have a family to haul around – or need to take a crew to the job site – the Tundra CrewMax offers the largest rear seat space of all half-ton full-sized pickups. With 38.9 inches of head room and 42.3 inches of leg room, it fits everyone comfortably – three-across, too! The rear doors open up wide for better passenger entry and exit. There’s plenty of room for three properly anchored child seats – and children at heart! Our competitors just come up short in every dimension.
A crew cab pickup, maybe – how about a limousine?
People talk about luxury trucks. Our 1794 Edition is as luxurious as they come. Feel the Lexus-like quality of the leathers, wood and switches. How many trucks can say that their truck is inspired by a line of luxury cars? We also offer the Platinum trim for those who like their luxury truck with some incognito style. Both the Platinum and 1794 Edition offer a wide variety of standard equipment from Premium JBL speakers emitting sound from the Entune touch screen system to a navigation system. Our competitors talk luxury, but it takes a huge premium to match the standard equipment on our Platinum and 1794 Edition models.
And, what is the price of luxury? Compared to our competition, the Platinum and 1794 Edition is fully equipped thousands of dollars less.
Lastly, the Tundra is handsome, durable, stronger – from the frame up to the cab and bed – rugged and reliable. Our four-wheel drive system has seen terrains most of the competition only dream of running in – such as the deserts and mountains of Baja California – for four decades! For the ultimate in off-road adventure, the TRD Pro is specifically designed to tackle any terrain with specific shock and suspension modifications and off-road gearing available to send torque to where it is needed. Our competitors are catching up to Toyota’s off-road experience – but ask them about how many Baja 500 and 1000 trophies they won.
Also, ask champion driver Ivan “Iron Man” Stewart which truck he would take into battle. The Tundra TRD Pro is his answer.
The Tundra is an all-around pickup truck made for every situation it goes through. It is a work truck, a play truck, a commuter truck, a weekend project truck, a vacation truck, a luxury truck…and so forth. The Toyota Tundra is what every truck aspires to be – everything!
